Yes, this is the face model of both Samara and Morinth. She is an incredible model and an absolute joy to work with :heart:

IT IS. I got to room with her and see how it was done. It takes a while, but it's just so gorgeous.

She looks more like Samara without the cosplay gear. When she is just herself I see more of Samara. Rana is gorgeous though regardless.

That's absolutely true. Hanging out with her outside of cosplay is always so surreal to me. I still see Samara.

Okay, I'm going to have to meet this woman, simply because I have to know how she gets that Asari tentacle hair to stay on!

Actually, I might know. The headpiece itself is made out of latex, and when you wear it, you need to put another coat of latex over the seam of the headpiece itself and your forehead to make sure it sticks and stays on (kind of like putting tape to connect two pieces of paper). Some spirit gum is probably used underneath as well to ensure head-staying-on-ness.

BUT! I can't be sure. You can message her on her facebook or even the mask-maker herself :'3

This is a great shot of her, I'll pass it on if you have not already.

She was wonderful to work with, myself and a group I got together made the costume for her :) She continues to be fun to be around and I was sad I wasn't able to go with her to PAX East. Would you mind if I used this photo for my portfolio? With credit to you, of course :)

If you are going to San Diego Comic Con, we'll be there again!

Please check out my page :) I do commissions! [link]

Oh definitely! You can feel free to use any of the photos I upload of her for your portfolio. I have a few more that show more of the outfit than this one. I really wish i could go to SDCC, I have a few friends that are going but I can't attend. It's on my list to go, but I really need to raise more funds. You did a fantastic job!! The cosplay is absolutely gorgeous :heart:

I had to stop for a second, because I thought this was photo-shopped. It took me a couple of seconds to realise that this was actually the face model cosplaying as her character!

Rana is fantastic. She always cosplays as Samara/Morinth! :D

Wow, awesome shot! I love the costume here, it's really well done - especially the head pieces and necklace. Rana makes an awesome Samara... Wait a moment. Probably because she IS the face model for Samara/Morinth. *duh*
Can't wait to see your other pics! I'm betting they're all as epic as this one.
