If the weather is nice you might be lucky to spot Holo around the (fictional) farming village of Palsoe, like I did not long ago. Holo is a deity of harvest and… she’s usually not stark naked but it kinda helps not to scare humans when interacting with them. Her usual form is that of a giant wolf, which you can imagine is rather terrifying. She keeps her tail and ears in her human form (though it kinda makes it troublesome at times). While she was kind enough to pose for me I seem to have mostly gotten shots from her front, but I hope you enjoy the photos anyway!
The sun was shining and so was Kousaka Kirino when I took these photos back in April. I’ve been rather busy with editing other photos I’ve taken since then and enjoying the awesome weather we’ve had these last months so I haven’t quite had the time. Anyways, excuses aside, please enjoy!
The last of the cosplay shoots I did together with Balance during Sakura-con 2018 is here. These characters are from an action role-playing game called Final Fantasy XV. And that’s about as much as I know about the game. I know it’s a pretty popular game series, I’ve just never been attracted to J-RPGs in the first place. But that doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy working with these cosplayers. It was a challenging shoot but the shots turned out well and the cosplayers were quite talented!
It’s time for one more of the Sakura-con group cosplay photoshoots with Balance, this time it’s with the girls from the popular (and free) visual novel Doki Doki Literature Club! The best way to describe the game is to tell people to play it for themselves, but if you really need to give an explanation but without giving off too much one could say it’s a very cute dating game… with a twist.
I’ve said it plenty already but I still want to thank Balance for inviting me to help out during his photoshoots during Sakura-con 2018. I decided to do one post for all the solo cosplay photoshoots we did since I assisted more than actually take photos myself.
It’s been years since my last convention. Well, technically it’s been a week by the time I post this since I was invited by some friends to come hang out during Sakura-con 2018 in Seattle, WA, USA. Yes, the trip was long (Since I live in Sweden) but it was worth it as I had a blast during my visit. Compared to the previous convention I was at (Otakon 2014) I was mostly busy doing planned cosplay photoshoots all Friday and Saturday with Balance so not so many photos as that time. I did have time to catch a few random hallway cosplay shots and general atmosphere of Sakura-con though. Please enjoy!
Hey everyone! Rin, Uzuki and I are all back from Seattle (WA) and we had a blast of a time! Rin and Uzuki got to meet up with Mio and do some sightseeing in Seattle while I was attending the Sakura-con 2018 convention, meeting friends and doing cosplay photoshoots with Balance. I took a total of 1800 photos during this trip so look forward to a post covering the Sakura-con convention and hallway cosplay shots and after that posts of the joint cosplay photoshoots I did with Balance and his clients.
For those of you who know Idolm@ster you might be wondering why Rin and Uzuki met up with Mio? Aren’t they always together? Well, I don’t own a Mio Honda figma myself but icattails do, so we did a joint photoshoot with the complete trio while we met during the convention.
Time for a yet another idol figure! I’m actually not much of an idol fan, but there is something about the designs of idols in anime/manga, or in this case, voice generating software that still makes their figures rather attractive. Here we have Luka Megurine (made by Stronger) sitting on a cherry blossom tree while wearing a gorgeous kimono.
For some time I’ve wanted to see if I could manage a pitch black background so I gave it a shot for this figure thinking it could look great in print, and even though I’d like to think I managed very well I still think this figure deserves to have a proper garden, preferably a Japanese garden, or vegetation as background. So while I wait for spring to be in full bloom where I live I hope you will enjoy these shots of this wonderful figure in the meanwhile.
I decided to join in on the official Figma contest by Good Smile Company for the 10th anniversary of the figma brand. I’ve uploaded previous creations to Instagram but unsure about the rules I decided to take new photos too. So here I present to you Emiya Shirou inside his Reality Marble and we get to follow him for a brief moment as he makes ready to fight a more powerful opponent.
