Death of the Endless Cosplay
In order to prepare for the occasion, we needed a rehearsal of sorts. So, photo equipment was dusted off and put to use. Which, incidentally, reminded me how we could use some decent lighting! I'm looking for a few pieces, such as a good softbox or two. Sometime in the future I hope to obtain a fair set up. Until then, we'll make do. And depend on the touch of Photoshop for effect.
As mentioned before, my cosplay is Death of the Endless. Gothic, indeed. I suppose it suits me, as far as choice of clothing color goes. Black it is. Easy, goes with everything.
This week will be a busy one. Things concerning school will need to be wrapped up for summer vacation. All of us welcome the break. There are other projects in the works that can only be completed during the summer holiday, I've been anxious to get started.
But of course, the one event weighing on our minds at the moment, A-Kon!
Thus, the day was spent gearing up. Practicing our makeup application and costume wearing. Testing out the durability of both items. Yes, some of us even went shopping all decked out. I think fellow shoppers enjoyed the show. It certainly makes one's day just a little more interesting to see anime characters walking the aisles. The girls were asked to pose for photos a few times. O' course other questions were asked about just what in the world we were doing in such get-ups. Now they know about A-Kon. Judging from the smiles on their faces, they may just show up at the convention!
