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!
