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.
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!
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.
The sun is shining, it’s hot and barely any wind; What to do? Go to the beach, of course!
I brought two figures new to my collection for a trip to the nearest beach and it felt good to be back to shooting figure photos again. First my favorite lens broke and secondly I’ve been busy moving till now, so it’s been about three months without doing any figure photos. Doesn’t mean I didn’t get any new figures though. I stumbled upon a figure of Nanao Yuriko by Phat Company one day on the internet and I just knew I had to get this one. She’s gorgeous, beautiful and cool, all at once. I’ve also recruited Kirino Kousaka to my collection. Let’s see what these two girls can do at the beach!
Spring has come and gone. Things around us constantly change, sometimes when we’re not ready for it, so we tend to sit back and contemplate about what has happened and what is going to come. And if there’s someone who looks like she’s always thinking about stuff it’s my figure of Yukino Yukinoshita by Kotobukia.
But metaphors and wise words aside, the real reason I choose to have a photoshoot with Yukino in spring is because I realized I haven’t done a photoshoot with her until now, so it was about time. Maybe that’s why she’s been looking so displeased all this time.
From the other side of the portal in the anime series Gate comes Rory “The Reaper” Mercury, a demi-goddess, an apostle of Emroy, the god of war, violence and death. But despite the rather terrible sounding job description Rory is very friendly and adventurous, though not if you happen to be a bad guy.
I figured a rocky setting, with a red sky to match her dress, would suit this figure best as it’s one of the settings used in the series.
I was reminded (but don’t remember by what) of an old photoshoot I did with Kuroyukihime three years ago in the summer. I was driving home from work one day and found the sunset behind my house could be a perfect backdrop for a photoshoot. I quickly grabbed the camera and the best fitting figure I could think of and headed into the forest behind the house. It’s been fun to compare my new post-processing with the first release of the photos I did on figure.fm back in 2013. Interesting to also find discarded photos for my first release that just needed more attention and skill to make them work. Enjoy!
