Post-convention withdrawal can be annoying, but good thing there’s always video to immortalize events and memories, so here’s the second batch of Idolfest videos from Otafest 2023! This one required more editing as I only had clips from parts of these performances since not only were I overheating in the blazing sun, so did my camera, so I had to take breaks in the recording to let it cool down. Good thing I like editing song medleys, so decided to make a compilation video of these clips.View post »
While on vacation in Canada I attended Otafest in Calgary, as someone told me it was the best anime convention (possibly incorrect quote), and I can’t lie, it pretty much was the best convention I’ve been to. I had prior to the trip figured out how to record video in HLG (a type of HDR) with my newest camera so I decided to check out the Idolfest event outdoors, suffering through the immense heat and wildfire smoke filled air, to see what the performers had to offer and possibly record some video. I was not let down at all!View post »
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.
Time for something a bit different, a first for Figure.moe, a proper cosplay photoshoot!
Mary Bear and her group managed to create a very nice rendition of the characters from the manga and CG animated anime series Land of the Lustrous and I got to be part of the photoshoot they had with Balance of Reprise Photography.
