Mera - Aquaman I by Knightess-Rouge Mera - Aquaman I by Knightess-Rouge
Mera time! :D
Since the costume is finally finished I wanted to take at least a few test pics before we start planning a proper photoshoot. That angle kinda became some kind of running gag/tradition, haha. This is my first ever proper eye-make up and I'm super happy how it looks like in the pictures. ♥ I practiced so much for it! Can't wait to take more pictures in that costume, even though I still have problems with the crown.. It doesn't want to stick to my head (even with glue). I hope I'll find a solution for that until the next photoshoot. Well, yeah.. we'll see. :)

Tasha,
Gorgeous as always! Sorry I haven't commented recently, I started a new job back in May and it has kept me really busy. Love the classic Silver-age variant of Babs btw! I am going to get that drawing of you as Batgirl done even if it kills me!

Will you be posting more with this costume?  This pic looks great.

Have you considered old school Marvel Girl?

As a sculptor I would say find a inexpensive tiara and mount the crown to it. Otherwise in a word, beautiful...of the costume, photo, and the model.

Hope you get the crown prob worked out, this looks good but with a closer fit it will look even better. Might want to try some smooth firm foam rubber by the temples (like window weather stripping) and paint/cover to match.

Here's my thoughts on the crown problem. What about gluing combs (the kind you use to hold your hair back, not the ones for styling.) backwards on the inside temple of the crown? So, then just slide the crown forward to put it on. Press it against your face and then pull it forward slightly and the combs should catch in your wig.

You might want to tape the combs in at first until you get the tension figured out.

The only other thing I can think of is, maybe gluing small loops at points around the inside face of the crown, and then tying the crown to the foundation of the wig? But then you have a longer commitment to one wig/crown. Not permanent. Just not easy to take apart.

Just my two cents.

Oh wow. I've never seen anyone Cosplay or even acknowledge Mira's existence. :XD:
This is really, really lovely.
As hard as the costume (or the crown) might have been to pull off, the effect on the whole is stunningly, arrestingly beautiful. :heart:
And of course, the fact that it has a beautiful, talented, sexy cosplayer to pull it off makes all the difference.
:iconluvluvplz:

Keep up the amazing work!

This is amazing. Your eyes are in focus so the photo simply draws the viewer in. Did you use contacts or are you eyes naturaly like that? By the way, if it helps, I use Mastix spirit gum when I have to glue something on my face. That REALLY sticks. My friend was cosplaying 7 of 9 and she didn't protect part of her eyebrow by accident and she lost it when she was taking the eye implantant down :D I used it for Poison Ivy and I was quite pleased. It works even better if you already have little bit of powder on your face.
