Now LIVE at CosplayDeviants!

My Wonder Woman set went live last night at CosplayDeviants.com! Please check it out and add your comments letting me know what you liked. I do take feedback and criticism seriously if it's presented appropriately.

I hope to team up with another girl some day to do a Wonder Woman "vs" set. One of the photographers I've met out here works with several girls who would be perfect. Just have to get that Cheetah outfit for her!

I owe big thanks to the folks that helped make this happen: Nova, Dave, Ron, Bryan, Brian, Bob and all my friends and family that have supported me through my weight issues. Thank you!!!

Did you watch the 1966 Batman series and if so, who was your favorite guest villain/villainess?

I know I watched it but it sure was a long time ago. My favorite was Julie Newmar's Catwoman although Eartha Kitt was quite memorable too because she did the best purr.

Cosplay Deviants coming soon


Looks like my first set for CosplayDeviants will launch next week: http://cosplaydeviants.com/index.php

I'm happy to announce that my first Wonder Woman photoshoot for CosplayDeviants.com will launch next week (usually on Tuesdays are the release of new sets). If you have been following my facebooktwitter and HeroFashions blog then you know what all this is about.

On my blogs, I released a note explaining why I'm doing this:

My personal reason for wanting to do it at this point in my life is because I feel as if I lost a considerable amount of my vibrant youth when I could have been modeling to years in a bad marriage (the first one not the second one) and then wasted years being so obese. I'm not fit for professional modeling but since I feel good doing it, I'm going to. The fact that I have fans and friends who enjoy my product is pure joy to me too.

As far as portraying existing comic book characters that readers feel are too dignified to be naked, I understand and respect the concern. I also have the same concerns. When possible, I will ask a creator if it's ok for me to portray their character in a respectful fashion. Hopefully they'll say yes but if not, there are plenty of others to choose from. Particularly with Wonder Woman - she is a goddess, strong and commanding but her creator clearly had fetish in mind when he developed her style, powers and weaknesses. Since William Marston's son Pete has become a friend of mine and given me his blessing to pursue an erotic look at Wonder Woman, then I feel I'm justified in doing so. I draw the line with all the bondage requests - it's not my thing but you can expect to see me tie up a villain or two with my magic lasso.


I've also done a steampunk Alice in Wonderland and Fantastic Four photoshoots but I don't have the release dates yet for them. If you're a creator, convention organizer or shop owner and looking for a costumer to promote your work, just ask and we'll talk. If I don't get to go far from home, I have a large network of friends that frequently appear at cons or charity events.

Do you collect people in jars? If so what type of people and why? If you wont put bodies in jar's how else do you intend on disposing of you're victims bodies? Ask a question back? :)

I only put people in jars who butcher the English language with poor grammar.

Will you be watching the Winter Olympics? If so which events will you be following?

Nope. I used to enjoy the figure skating and hockey but I'm just not into it.

Finish this intro: Team Captains Hacksaw Jim Duggin and Macho King Randy Savage join fellow members Rugged Ronnie Garvin and Greg the Hammer Valentine along with Bret Hart along with Dino Bravo, Hercules and the Earthquake. It's the 4x4's vs...

I haven't the foggiest idea what that is.

Finish this sentence: You! You worthless piece of slime! You disgusting blob. You're nothing but an unstable short chained molecule. You foul obnoxious muck! You have a weak electrical chemical bond...

I don't remember the rest of the sentence but it was followed by a groovy Jackie Wilson song.

Star Sapphire work in progress

I'm almost finished with classic Star Sapphire. The suit is done. I just got the boots and opted for pink ones instead of purple. I had found purple gloves in a thrift store but I have to find them. The mask is leather and was purchased from a maker on etsy. The last thing I'm actually doing is the headpiece/tiara which is already giving me problems. Argh.

Even though the fabric I ordered a year ago is far from the color it looked like online, I decided to use it anyway even if I just consider it a "draft" of a future version. It's obnoxious neon bubblegum blind you pink.

If you aren't familiar with this version because the Blackest Night one is vastly different, check out some of the fun vintage images at ComicVine.

This design is a modification from the Kwik Sew figure skating pattern #3052. That's one of my "go to" patterns for starting off. I've used it for Jen's Mockingbird and for a Kitty Pryde style X-Men suit. I like those patterns because their very basic and easy to understand.

What do you think of Witchblade or any other TopCow/Image comic?

Well, there's a vast difference in the titles. I don't read Witchblade at all. I had read the Shades of Grey story and it was entertaining enough but far from being a "must have." From Top Cow, I love Freshmen and Common Grounds. From Image, I loved Chew vol 1; I really enjoyed the little amount of Invincible I got to read but I don't think I have any of their books currently on my pull list.

how come your photographer is a bovine or equine photographer.

I've been called a cow enough times, I guess that my photographers come from a specialty group now.

What is your go to movie for when you are alone, with friends, fleeing good, feeling like shit, and when you are bored? Sorry it's a bit long.

It depends on if I'm with friends or not. With people it's Jaws, my all time favorite movie; alone is something like Practical Magic or While You Were Sleeping.

Do you ever visit cosplay.com?

Yes I do have a profile there and love to look at all the photos. There's not a lot of American comics represented but I still do research there and I bought a lot of my wigs through cosworx.

  3. ThatAmber
  4. TheRealAmber
  5. AmberTheGeek
  6. AmberRevealed
  7. ExposingAmber
