This was an impromptu cosplay and I'm so glad it turned out well. After watching the movie, I've always wanted to cosplay Babydoll but didn't coz she was seriously overcosed at that period of time. Now, 3 years after the movie, seemed to be the right time and I finally cosplayed her. Looking forward to a shoot as well ^_^
Prop wise, as this was a secondhand costume, the seller included the katana as well. I redid the katana and spent more time then I would like to on it. After hacking my brains out on what to use to create her katana engravings (not to mention several failed attempts T_T ), I discovered something epic in the form of water slide decals. That worked very well for both her katana and pistol engravings. I also redid the hilt to be more accurate and learnt how to tie a sageo ^_^. I had to scour the net to find all sorts of reference pictures I could piece together in order to trace the intricate designs of the engravings. As for the pistol, I bought the exact model M1911A1 and redid the paint job. My good friend Huishan helped me with the charms.
