A couple of friends of mine rented a abandoned factory for an entire day for us to have a cosplay shoot in! My very first time doing anything like this, with so many photographers and cosplayers. Yeah, no pressure there.
I was pretty nervous because for Animecon this month I pretty much only have fairly simple costumes. But of course I wouldn't miss a chance like this so I went. I also figured I would shoot a couple of cosplayers myself this time, since I'm making photos more and more.
Most of the people attending were people I already knew, but I also saw some new faces. They were all fantastic people though. The factory itself was ENORMOUS. I don't think I even explored all of it that day. We also figured the location would be pretty dirty so we brought our own chairs, but when we arrived they had a gorgeous hallway and a meeting room. Which pretty much became our base of operation.Bubblefox (Irisviel) getting her Irisviel lashes. Before her, Esther also drew them on me, since I failed at that T_TThe table in the meeting room became a big mess pretty fast. XD
Most cosplayers still needed to put on their costume, and because my Illya costume was simple I was done pretty fast. Though it turned out I cut her bangs on the wrong side of my face *DEEERP* but I still managed to somewhat fix it there. Will cut her bangs more for the convention though... I also have one crappy chestbinder... I bound my chest when I put on Illya, but when I took her off the chest binder had already went down my waist :') (its a strapless one.)
Anyway, after I was done most photographers were pretty eager to get started, and since I was one of the people done the earliest, I was asked for a photoshoot >///< I went with ~Chastten and ~Wybsu-chan for the first few photos. They had a lot of patience with me :3 Photo by ~Wybsu-chan.
After a few photos I joined the rest of the Fate cosplayers for some group photos. After that, I did some couple photos with Bubblefox as Irisviel, who is of course my mother in the series. Checking out some of the photos. So pretty *.* Photo by ~ChasttenI obviously needed some photos of Illya with her dad too. HUG~~ XD ...Somehow this photo didn't make it online. Photo by ~Wybsu-chan.^.^ Photo by ~Wybsu-chan.Yup, approved! ^^ Photo by ~Wybsu-chan.
*REPLICA-Photography also brought a smoke machine! It was apple scented! It was pretty cool but the entire room got covered in smoke so fast! XD Photo by *REPLICA-Photography
After Illya I decided to put on my Yuno cosplay. I immediatly got asked for a photoshoot which I of course didn't say no to! ^^ As Yuno I pulled some pretty crazy faces, even scaring the photographer from time to time :') Worth it.Yuno behind the scenes!
Also shot some photos as Yuno with my boyfriend *REPLICA-Photography
that day, he didn't feel too well so he didn't take a lot of pictures... and neither did I, because when I was done with my last cosplay it was already 5PM ._."
After the shoot we all went to ~Amirine
's house for some chinese food! It was a day well spend!
I can't wait for another shoot. :3 But next stop: ANIMECON!!
