If Anyone Ever Deserved Their Own Cosplay Gallery…It’s Yaya

Published by at 10:00 am under Images,Movies,Video Games

Alright, now THIS is what I was hoping to get out of my costume contest. I was going to feature Yaya in my post yesterday, but once I saw her full collection, I knew immediately she had to have her own post.

She was suggested to me by reader Gabbi, who gets ten thousand internet points for the find. Yaya is a pro cosplayer who has dressed up as practically every hot geeky character you can think of. Psylocke, Wonder Woman, Catwoman, Elektra, Black Cat, Slave Leia, and so so many more.

I think you’ll agree that in both costume detail and uh, physical attributes, Yaya is one of the best costumed ladies we’ve ever featured on the site, and considering how many we’ve seen, I don’t say that lightly. If you’re still not sold, just check out the full gallery below:

Wonder Woman

Ada Wong

Black Cat

Mulan

Elektra

Catwoman

Targaryen

Mad Max

Sucker Punch

Darkstalkers

Uh, You Tell Me

Scarlett Witch

Thor

Leia

Deathstrike

See more of Yaya on her DeviantArt page and her website here.

    wow! she got death strike perfect!

  • Gabbi

    I thought you’d love her somehow, I was slightly shocked she’d never been featured before!

  • Synderryn

    I believe that the picture you were unable to identify is Carmilla from Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust

  • Ianew

    The unlabeled red one is Carmilla from Vampire Hunter D

  • Nilsilly

    The “Uh, you tell me” is Rita from Power Rangers.

  • Gregory

    The you tell me is Carmilla from vampire hunter D bloodlust

  • Orleanas

    I thought Rita, too, #Nilsilly.

  • Jim Lahey

    After doing a google search, it is definitely Carmilla from Vampire Hunter D, NOT Rita from Power Rangers.

    I thought a couple of her looks were dragged down not because of her looks or how the costume looked, but merely because she has overtly Asian features and a couple of the characters are too non-Asian for her to pull off. Mostly Wonder Woman, Elektra, Sucker Punch and Leia all looked “off” to me for some reason. However, I do like her other costumes, especially Cat Woman and Deathstrike.

  • victor

    very sexy time thank you.

  • Mike M

    Good Gawd! Awesome lady!

  • Penny Sautereau-Fife

    Actually it’s Ultimecia from Final Fantasy VIII, NOT Carmilla.

  • thenottakenname

    “uh you tell me” I first saw it and immediately thought of the first power rangers main antagonist… so I’m going to go with that personally.

  • hey

    i suggest you look into this cosplayer:

    Alodia Giosengfiao

    google her

  • Jim Lahey

    @thenottakenname You can’t say “I’m going to go with that personally” if you are completely wrong. Just because you think it looks similar doesn’t mean you determine that is correct.

    Rita

    As you can see, you are 100% wrong if you said Rita Repulsa. This is not the same person Yaya is cosplaying, just live with it.

    Ultimacia
    http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/index.php?title=Ultimecia&image=Ultimecia2-jpg

    Again, kind of close, but not really. So Penny Sautereau-Fife, instead of jumpnig in with false information in the 11th hour, how about you shut up and let people who can do a simple google image search talk? Thanks.

    Carmilla

    As you can see, a perfect match for Yaya’s costume.

    Also, if you do a google image search for “carmilla vampire hunter d” THE PICTURE OF YAYA DRESSED LIKE HER COMES UP. Geez, it’s called a simple google image search. Try it in the future so you look like you know what you’re talking about people…

    Jim Lahey you are a racist. “I thought a couple of her looks were dragged down not because of her looks or how the costume looked, but merely because she has overtly Asian features and a couple of the characters are too non-Asian for her to pull off. Mostly Wonder Woman, Elektra, Sucker Punch and Leia all looked “off” to me for some reason. However, I do like her other costumes, especially Cat Woman and Deathstrike.”

    Do you realize that Jamie Chung who played Amber in Sucker Punch IS Asian? And that everyone else, with the exception of Leia, are FICTIONAL characters? Do you look at Caucasian cosplayers dressed as Anime characters and say, “They look too white,” too? Did you see Samuel L Jackson as Nick Fury and say, “He looks too black.”

    Geez.

  • Jim Lahey

    Mike I didn’t mean any of that in a racist way. It was a simple statement of fact that my interpretation of some of the characters was different from what was portrayed. I’m sorry we live in a politically correct era where I can’t state that people of a different ethnicity from my perceived norm for a character don’t quite fit with what I have become accustomed to.

    Yes I based Wonder Woman on an American even thouh I know she was supposed to be Amazonian because of her iconosism in American culture, yes I based my vision of Elektra on the crappy movie starring Jennifer Garner, and yes I base my Leia on Carrie Fisher. I am genuinely sorry that I mentioned Sucker Punch, both because it seemed to have hit such a deep vein with you and because I have not seen the film and have no desire to do so. In an attempt to list more than two names with which I was disappointed, I stretched the boundary of decency and included a portrayal which was foreign to me.

    And no, I don’t look at white cosplayers and think that they don’t look Asian enough, mostly because the Japanese anime artists have beaten me to it by giving them damn blonde hair, fair skin and big, wide-open, caucasian blue eyes.

  • MattChi

    Good call on Vampire D, I knew I recognized her from somewhere.

  • Jono

    my best friend, who is a girl, has photos of this cosplayer all over her house. Even a signed picture with her in it.

    She is an amazing cosplayer.

  • miguel

    is the firt one Psylocke

  • Gothic Sora

    (sigh) mike I love asian women and she’s defiantly sexy, but Elelectra and wonder woman are greek they don’t have eye folds. Scarlet witch’s father is Magneto so she’s at least half Jewish. Also wrong. Yes Sam L. is too black to be playing the non-ultimate Nick Fury. He’s also too young fortunately…
    On the other hand Yes I’ve seen Caucasian cosplayers who have chosen poorly for their facial features, and black guys cosplayers (I’m looking at you back Might Guy) too. Her costumes are great and her, uh other features, are stunning, I’m just saying that even so her Asian features through of the costumes of the distinctly non Asian characters.

  • Charlie

    That’s not Thor! That’s Sif!

  • orionhawk

    nice, but you guys should check out Ginny mcQueen (http://www.ginnymcqueen.com/costumes/)

  • some guy

    The mystery picture is Queen Amadala…er Ammadalla…er Darth Vaders wife when he was still a kid.

  • Duncan

    I was kind of scratching my head at “Thor” using a sword, instead of his hammer, Mjolnir. Saying it’s Sif makes more sense to me. Still an amazing cosplay though.

  • Aedan

    Hi guys,

    If you like real cosplayers, with… Attributes, as it has been said, you should check Jessica Nigri. She’s quite amazing ^^

    See ya
