It’s been a hectic post-con fortnight unfortunately, but having gone through some more photos which I shot at October’s London MCM, I managed to find some more nice shots of cosplayer Costumed Hero, with her partner, Courtney. It was very handy that they were both quite laid back and not serious at all, which made for quite a playful few photos.
I ended up doing a totally unprepared and impromptu shoot with Fern, aka cosplayer HiddenRozel, on the day 2 of October 2016 MCM London. Fern was happy and bouncy, whilst I was wondering what the hell was going on, or who the hell was she meant to be (although I will add this was not due to the fact her costume was not recognisable – I just had not seen the anime from which she was cosplaying)! I later found out she was cosplaying Suigintou from Rozen Maiden.
With nothing to go on but the big sword which Fern had as a prop, there was only one thing I could think of doing. I did some research as to what this Suigintou was all about, and man is she a dark character! So… sword play and ominous it’ll be!
Another of my shoots this year was with Harriet, aka cosplayer Costumed Hero, sporting her Mad Hatter cosplay. Harriet and her cosplays have been featured in NEO Magazine before, so am really happy that I got a chance to have Harriet as a guinea pig for doing shoots. We even managed to drag a White Rabbit cosplayer into our shoot!
I wasn’t too sure where I was going to go with the Mad Hatter set of photos, but finally decided to go for a bit of high contrast high key editing to give it that surreal and dreamy look.
