X-Men Phoenix by NemoValkyrja X-Men Phoenix by NemoValkyrja
Costume by me
Pax Prime 2011

I decided to go with more of a Phoenix Endsong design, and opted for the bigger chest symbol. I'm relieved I finally finished this costume - it's been half-finished for a long long time now.

I was going to PAX just to take pictures of my friends, but then Tali asked me to cosplay X-Men with her. I finished most of it the day before the con lol.

I'm sad my new lens didn't get here in time for the convention but I really love my new Canon, it's much better for capturing what I want with the specific settings I want. The flares captured in the photos are real - I've been playing around with manual exposure.

Hi I am looking at cosplaying her soon and would love to know any tips to get the best results :) for instance, your gold symbol is adhered sooo nicely, how did you manage to get it soo flawless, 

Any help would be sooo incredible :) as I am a first time maker.

Just kiddin', or maybe not.
You are a statuesque beauty, as is Jean.
Hope you post more Phoenix in the future.

Can I ask you the permission to make a drawing of your photo?
I'm working on a gallery of hyperralistic portraits of characters from comics, manga, anime and movies, and will be very honoured to add this magnificent shot.
Thank you in advance for your answer. :)

Where's the comic bubbles with the Dark Phoenix talking in your head? The sun in the back could almost be mistaken as the Phoenix force. Is she still dead in the comics?

Greetings,
You have a great costume and I like how the picture turned out. I was wondering if you were going to New York Comic Convention/ New York Anime Festival (NYCC/ NYAF) 2011? I managed to get booth 2721 and I would love to capture you in a 360 Degree pictorial and of course for free. You can even stop by and see some of me previous work.
