Adrianne Curry and her Aeon Flux Costume

Hi there!

In the midst of working on my revamp of my website,, I suddenly got a flood of questions from friends concerning Adrianne Curry's Aeon Flux costume worn at the San Diego Comic Con.

No, I didn't make that version of the costume for her. I made a version for her created from wet look spandex. The one she wore to the con was made from latex. Probably to most people who are not very familiar with the difference between wet look spandex and latex will mistake the costumes.

This is the latex costume worn at the San Diego Comic Con (and she did have knee pads and a holster and knife holder, I believe, but they broke (not made by me) and she tweeted about it):

[She may have worn gloves I made for her out of wet look spandex - I can't tell for sure from the pics, but they are less shiny and smoother than the latex.]

This costume is the one I made for her, but is being mistakenly labelled as the back of the latex costume:

The mix-up is understandable due to the fact that they are similar in design. She did wear one of the Leeloo costumes I made (top and pants, the suspenders were made by someone else), and her friend Honor wore the Leeloo bandage costume I made for Adrianne.

I wasn't going to post anything, but I see now that some online articles are mistakenly referring to the back of my costume as the one worn at the San Diego Comic con, and I wanted to clear things up.

Happy Cosplay to you all!

I wasn't there for the whole weekend, just for Sunday, and I didn't run into her at all, but I could tell the difference right away. I feel honored to have been able to wear one of your costumes to San Diego Comic Con! They are all awesome :)
