So every half year bradaan
and I organize a trip to a beautiful garden here in the northern part of the Netherlands for a shoot with friends, who usually live pretty far away (usually we're the ones doing the travelling
So last week it was time for another shoot, the weather was great and even though not as many people as the time before this one showed up, we really had a blast.
On the first day I decided to mostly cosplay. Last summer I made a yukata cosplay, based on the figurine by FREEing, and I figured that would be ideal for the gardens considering a part of it is a huge beautiful chinese garden (yeah not Japanese but equally beautiful). I was there early, because we only had limited time (the gardens are open from 10 to 5pm) and with me a few photographers because they don't really need that much time to prepare and I already did my make-up at home. So I got many photos because for the first hour I was pretty much the only model present. XD
In the beginning I already noticed a few problems... my umbrelly was broken, probably because of transporting considering I also took it with me to Abunai, and my stupid obi would fold to the outside, revealing my superfancy craft foam solution (that way the obi wouldn't completely fold, little trick of mine
) Soooo yeah I kept fixing that every time throughout the shoot. I first did a bunch of photos with Jeroen Weimar Photography
and afterward I did a small photosession with JFermie Photography
. I REALLY LOVE THOSE PHOTOS. They turned out absolutely gorgeous, I couldn't be more happy with them.
My boyfriend also took a pretty close-up of me, which was pretty difficult because I had trouble keeping a straight face with terrible chinese music playing in the background. XD
After that more cosplayers were ready so I had some time off :'D
I decided to accompany JFermie and ChikoxChan
for a shoot of hers. I got to be the assistent
When we got back it was already around 2PM and I still planned on taking photos myself. But I knew that SkittlesnCookie
was wearing Rin Tohsaka, also from Fate, also in yukata. So pictures of us clearly had to happen ._.
So I asked her and Chastten
if they had time for a couple of photos! And I figured we would like take two or three pictures and be done with it, but it turned into a full length shoot with lots of derps and fun XD No regrets!
Still have a lot more photos of this shoot so expect them up soon! ^_^
So with only an hour left I only had time for one shoot with me as the photographer. So I went to the greenhouse with Graymark
who was wearing Nathan Drake from Uncharted.
(small preview, more photos will follow, go watch Miko-Bura
for my photos!)
Soooo the next day most people had already left so only me, the-essie
were left. So only two cosplayers this time. This meant I had plenty time to shoot with both models. I started out with SkittlesnCookie
who was wearing Chie Satonaka from Persona 4. I think we got some awesome pics out of that
So at the end of this shoot we actually ran into one of the managers of the garden, who was extremely excited about what we were doing and even offered us to shoot in the chinese teahouse, which was closed off at the moment. LouCosplay
was actually wearing Yoko Littner (maid) from Gurren Lagann, and it was such a perfect environment for her *_*
So my second shoot was with her!! It was also a lot of fun although people around us did start taking pictures of her without permission -_-

And before we knew it the day was over, and we ended it with delicious sushi!!
Thanks for the great weekend everyone!! ^___^
