Laura Joy // Jessica Rabbit Cosplay

Do you remember Who Framed Roger Rabbit? Of course you do.. Then you’re going to fall completely in love with this Jessica Rabbit Cosplay done by Laura Joy with the help of Chicago makeup artist Gabbie Johnson.

Laura Joy // Jessica Rabbit Cosplay

It’s the height of the Jazz era. You walk into a dimly lit lounge and there you see her. The Jessica Rabbit herself.. Well, not exactly… Close enough! You’ve seen Laura here on JDP before! She was Poison Ivy for the SKGxJDP boudoir. Well, now she’s back and reclaiming one of her most timeless cosplays. She’s Jessica Rabbit.

Don’t be Shy, Get A little Closer..

The makeup by Gabbie is done absolutely impeccable. Jessica Rabbit has always been a glamorous cartoon woman for me. Laura did not come to play with us with this one either.. She may be cosplaying but she came to slay our lives with this stunning red dress. She even brought purple gloves to complete the look.

Negan Cosplay // Glitter Goddess Cosplay

A Negan Cosplay, you say? I can hear you in your head going, “Jasemine.. You still haven’t watched The Walking Dead, have you? Well.. you’re not wrong. Alas, Bri is about to show you how to slay! 

Negan Cosplay // Glitter Goddess Cosplay

This isn’t the first Walking Dead Cosplay to hit this blog. Once upon a time, the gorgeous Jill Robi cosplayed Michonne and did an insanely good job. I was excited when Bri came onto set swinging a bat in her hand. I felt like I was gonna get my butt kicked but I also wasn’t realy mad about it. I was ready.

Uh oh.. the gloves are coming off.

I can’t give it all away though! You’re going to have to stay tuned.. Or you can pledge to the Patreon to see the cosplay pinup Bri will be releasing later this week! It’s gonna be good. Did you also check out her collab with Cosplay Sass yet? If not, go check it out! As convention season takes flight, there are gonna be a lot more cosplay photo sessions being released.

Recess Cosplay // Cosplay Sass + Glitter Goddess

Recess was one of my absolute favorite One Saturday Morning cartoons growing up. When Cosplay Sass and the Glitter Goddess came to me and mentioned a recess cosplay collaboration, I jumped at the opportunity. Convention season is among us! I mean, Anime Central is literally this weekend!

Recess Cosplay // Cosplay Sass + Glitter Goddess
Jasemine Denise Photography

When I was little, the most painfully crazy moment in One Saturday Morning history was finding out that Spinelli’s first name was Ashley. Holy identity crisis! My best friend at the time too was named Ashley and I came into school the next day skeptical. The Ashley I knew was more like Spinelli, a tomboy and a cool girl. I had decided that day that any other Ashley was my sworn enemy.

This recess cosplay is about to show you my inner cartoon nerd.. which as I’ve grown has grown apart from me. (Seriously, the last cartoon I binge watched was The Fairly Odd Parents, and apparently Cosmo and Wanda.. had kids?)

Anyway!

Ashley B // Glitter Goddess

Ashley B, in the cartoon was supposed to be the gossip one who was really into fashion.. Remember when she kicked Ashley A out for not wearing Purple On Purple Day? Bri channelled that vibe perfectly, even though she’s nothing like the character in real life. However, she did come.. carrying “The Rules” of the Ashley Club.

Spoiler Alert: I didn’t know I wasn’t the only one in my friends circle who couldn’t spell Wednesday. Don’t trip, Bri.. That’s how I try to spell it too.

Ashley Spinelli // Cosplay Sass.

The toughest kid on the playground, and honestly the sassiest cosplayer on my cosplay roster, Cosplay Sass truly is Spinelli. They have no problems channeling some of the most evil characters on the silver screen. Yet, as Spinelli.. It’s just perfect.

Spinelli was a badass to me because even though her first name was Ashley, she had no interest in being an Ashley.

Are you looking to be a part of the Ashleys?

We’re gonna do a full version of this recess cosplay after Anime Central and we’re looking for more Ashleys! Drop a comment if you’re down to be a part of the cast of recess! In the meantime, follow Glitter Goddess and Cosplay Sass on Instagram and don’t hesitate to wave them down if you catch them at Acen this year.

Felicia DarkStalkers Cosplay // Holy Cherries

This Felicia Darkstalkers Cosplay is probably one of my favorite cosplay shoots today. I may have a little bias because I love Holy Cherries, but that’s beside this point. This is amazing. The cosplay is handmade by the model herself.

Holy Cherries // Felicia Darkstalkers Cosplay

You’ve seen Holy Cherries here before. Just a few short weeks ago, she did a Tank Girl Cosplay that was honestly amazing. Her cosplays have always been creative and full of spark. Outside of being a model for My Geek Goddess, she’s pieced together several unique looks including a multitude of ones as a brand ambassador for Shop Kinky Girly.

Be careful, this kitty’s got claws! 

My favorite thing about this cosplay is that Ariel made the nails of the kitten costume out of cigarette filters. Can you imagine this adorable Queen painting fake nails of kitties surrounded by her own three cats? You can totally see her cosplay WIPS featuring her cats on her Instagram page.

Wait, don’t touch that dial!

In a couple of days, the not safe for work version of this shoot drops to the JDP Patreon, but if you pledge to Holy Cherries, you’ll get access right now!

Can you wait? or Do you want it right now?

Tank Girl Cosplay // Holy Cherries

Tank GIRL??? Oh yes! I’m ready! You may have seen her on Instagram, you’re probably pledged to her Patreon… and you’ve probably seen the mountains of long posts I’ve posted about how amazing she is.. But there is no better way to introduce Holy Cherries to you than to show you one of my all time favorite cosplays done by her!

Tank Girl Cosplay // Holy Cherries

Cosplaying is actually how I met this amazing Queen. We first collaborated on a Velma shoot that was glorious. She really broke the mold for me because when she stepped onto the set.. There was no Holy Cherries.. There was just Velma and it was almost overwhelming how good she was doing it.

As Tank Girl, she was no different. Hell, when she stepped onto my set… I was actually a bit intimidated. With her handmade bat of nails over her shoulder and a piercing scowl… She screamed danger and I was ready to face it… As long as I was beside her and not on the other end of her raft.

This Tank Girly Cosplay may get a little Not Safe For Work, but not too much.. If you’re reading this somewhere people can see you, stop here for safety reasons. Hahaha. But if you’re not sensitive to underwear covered butts, then proceed forward! Promise it gets no more unsafe than that!

Tank Girl, WAIT!!

There is a NSFW version of this Tank Girl Cosplay alive and thriving on the Holy Cherries Patreon. Ariel is one of the many cosplay pinup models Jasemine Denise Photography works with. If you’ve never experienced that or a cosplay boudoir, stick around… I’ve got a few more coming your way but if you’re feeling risque and want to book a session of your own.. Don’t forget you can fill out booking form any time and get a shoot with JDP!

You’ll see Holy Cherries again over here at JDcom sooner than you think. In the meantime you can follow her on Instagram and Twitter.

Poison Ivy Cosplay // Laura Joy

Yes, that’s right. A Poison Ivy cosplay. You could say Jasemine Denise Photography has a thing for the Gotham Universe.. and you’d be right. It’s not even just Gotham though. You’ve seen your favorite photographer as Storm, you’ve seen Rose Romanova as Black Canary and now… Laura Joy as not just Poison Ivy… Nah, this is a BOMBSHELL Poison Ivy cosplay.

Bombshell Poison Ivy Cosplay
Harness from SKG Designs // Makeup by: MUAGDJ

At this time, Laura was fairly new to the Jasemine Denise Photography model roster.  She was nervous, but she was adventurous coming in the SKGxJDP boudoir session at the very last second, and slaying everyone in her presence’s life. Truly living up to her cosplay as Poison Ivy. Her makeup was an intricate affair created by Gabbie, our lead makeup artist who worked diligently with Laura to create something that was poisonous but very avante garde…

Photographer’s Secret: I was terrified stepping into this session. As a photographer, it’s almost frowned upon for you to admit that. The industry tells you to be confident, kick ass, and don’t show any weakness. Welp. I was scared because I wanted Laura to feel confident and gorgeous because.. Well she is. She took my expectations, shattered them, and created her own mold to break. Five seconds into the session, you couldn’t have every told me that she had just started modeling. No… This was pure talent.

Bombshell: bomb·shell ˈbämˌSHel/ 1.) One who is amazing, stunning or devastating.

Yes, that sounds about right. Amazingly, devastatingly, stunning!

Laura, wearing an overbust and a Tempest Harness from SKG Designs definitely make this session less about the cosplay and more about the concept. 

A closeup look at Laura:

Gabbie really took her time with the detail on this. The leaves are literally composed of glitter. This year, I’ll be sharing a lot more photoshoots featuring her makeup, so make sure you follow her on Instagram. Laura’s also modeling the Tempest Harness in red from SKG Designs over her overbust corset.

To see more of Laura’s photoshoots, follow her on Instagram! She’ll be back sooner than you think.

Black Canary Cosplay – Rose Romanova

Let me start this off by saying that Rose Romanova is amazing. Her Black Canary cosplay? Uneblievable! I know, I know. I say that about all the models, cosplayers and clients that I work with but seriously. That’s because they’re all amazing. Stick around, because you’re about to be impressed. With a capital I.

Black Canary Cosplay | Rose Romanova

The only way out of here is through me. I hope you’re stupid enough to try. – Black Canary

What can I even say about this badass cosplay? When Rose stepped into the dark room that housed the screams and pain of a million fallen soldiers, there was power in every single step. She in that moment was Black Canary. Gone was the down to earth bubbly girl who had just politely pet my dogs who were trying to eat the handmade elements of her costume… Now, in my presence was a fighter… A woman who would not stand for defeat.

The room was filled with nothing but high kicks and a t t i t u d e. 
Anyone who stepped into that sacred space knew better. At least, for their sake… I hoped so.

As she stepped into the light, I realized that Canary wasn’t just tough… She was beautiful. 

And just when you thought this Black Canary Cosplay couldn’t get any more badass..

It would be fitting that the first thing I noticed on Black Canary’s bike was the word Triumph. This woman looked as though she had dominated every stereotype pressed against her and said “I am badass.”

My father was a cop. I married a cop. I was meant to be a cop. But this city didn’t want a female detective. – Black Canary

ROAD RASH!!! Did you dig the shoot?

I definitely can’t wait to work with Rose again. Her Black Canary Cosplay is just one of the very few awesome cosplays she’s created herself. Follow her on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for more of her cosplays. Don’t forget to subscribe to the blog for more awesome shoots from your favorite Chicago photographer!

RWBY | Atlanta Cosplayer | Shanice

Atlanta has some amazing cosplayers. I mean, truly amazing. So much so that I’ll be back down there in November for round two, so if you’re in Atlanta, you should book a session. I said all that to say that Shanice is no exception. As a matter of fact, we somehow managed to slay two different cosplay shoots in one day.

RWBY

Shanice | Atlanta Cosplayer

Shanice is amazing. Honestly, she’s a powerful human being. It’s in her stance, it’s in her vibe, and it’s in her smile. There was no doubt in my mind stepping into the backyard of my good friend Pandora’s land that she was about to bring a look to RWBY like non I’d ever seen before.

What’d you think? Shanice made a fantastic RWBY didn’t she?

You can follow this Atlanta cosplayer on Instagram to check out more of her fantastic cosplays and her fantastic natural hair journey!
If you’re in Atlanta in November, you should book a session because Jasemine Denise Photography is definitely coming back!
I had such a great time shooting Shanice and the rest of the gang, I couldn’t resist.
You can also check out the shoot I did with Ebby which fun fact was shot in the same place this session was!

Punk Storm Cosplay // Collaboration

Punk Storm has been a dream of mine since I could first remember. I’m talking before I could even imagine holding a camera would get me as far as it has. When the Queen behind Weave N Luxury, the Queen behind SKG Designs and I all started talking about a collaboration where I’d be in front of the camera, I jumped at the chance to live one of my wildest dreams out.

Punk Storm Cosplay

The Hair // + Weave N Luxury

The wig to this cosplay was created from 100% human hair by Weave N Luxury. When I said Storm, she just immediately knew where I was going with it. It was crazy. She dyed it so that it had the look specifically and then when I got on set, she styled and cut it right there while it was on my head. Magic!

The Punk Look // + SKG Designs

You can’t be punk storm without having some punk in your outfit.
I contemplated for weeks what would make this look complete. Of course it was almost a no brainer after time. My handmade EST 19xx spiked bra. I’ve been asked for years if I made the bra myself, the answer is yes! Ontop of that is the Selene Harness that I rocked right alongside the Selene waist belt, both leather and handmade from SKG.

The collar is a white leather with a large O ring also created by SKG designs. While it may not be available in white anymore, there is definitely an entire leather collection that can be purchased in either red or black. 

Are you digging the Punk Storm Cosplay?

Punk storm has always been a dream of mine! What’s your next cosplay? What’s your dream cosplay? Seriously, tell me in the comments! I’d love to know. Also, remember that you can get a discount over at SKG Designs any time by using the code ‘JasemineDenise’ and if you buy something… You should tag me in a photo of you rocking it on Instagram, because I love love love seeing people rock SKG!

Until next time, don’t forget to subscribe to the blog so you can see more photoshoots of me done by my second shooter Ray, as well as photoshoots of all my models and clients!

V – Eleven // Stranger Things Cosplay

Have you seen the show Stranger Things? I haven’t yet but I’ve seen one amazing queen slay the entire character in one shoot…. Well, technically two. I first shot V back in October of 2016. It was right around Halloween and I was one step off of begging. She’s got a way about her… Like, a real one that captivates you into feeling like shooting her is a need. Being around her is infectious. One of her first ever ideas was to do a Stranger Things cosplay and she immediately had her character picked out. I was skeptical, being someone who had never seen the show, but she lead the way.

That being said, are you ready for her Eleven Stranger Things Cosplay? 

V – ELEVEN – Stranger Things Cosplay

Set the tone. You had heard about a freak ‘accident’ in the grocery store up the street. Some ‘freak’ came in and took a bunch of waffles. They say she was armed with… telekinetic powers or something. Sounds like propaganda. Anyways, you get your Fuiji water from the gas station and go into the woods for your morning walk. In the woods, you hear a rustling followed by a ravenous noise… As you come across a clearing in your path, you see it… her…


They weren’t lying. There she is, some weirdo with a nosebleed chowing down on waffles… fresh out the box, and when a twig snaps under your foot… She looks at you in a manner that you’ve never seen before. She wasn’t exactly giving you the evil eye, but still. The look on her face put a shiver up your spine. You wanted to move, to run, to scream for help… but all you could do was stand there, dumbfounded at the fact that you should’ve been more mindful of what they were saying on the news. They said she was dangerous right?

She stood to her feet and you thought she had a weapon. It turned out to be a waffle. Your head tilted sideways, your gaze perplexed.
… The last thing you can remember was her holding her hand out.

Everything went black…
please don’t let it end like this..

***
“Hello?” You whispered as your eyes adjusted to the darkness that awaited your rise. She appears, seemingly out of the darkness. Eyes fixed on yours, head tilted, and without warning she gives you a dark smile.

You can’t move your arms. You can’t move your legs. You’re trapped.

“WHAT ARE YOU DOING? LET ME GO!” You scream. Your words are lost in the darkness as she backs away. Soon she is but a dark faded memory and you know that your fate has been filled.

V is not Evil, I promise.

She plays the role very well but as it would turn out, the Stranger Things cosplay is the ‘darkest’ thing we’ve done yet. You’ll see her serving looks again soon here at JDcom but if you just can’t wait, follow her on Instagram! Also, subscribe to the blog to get updated first!
