Shiki: Strange Companions by zimiel Shiki: Strange Companions by zimiel
In the things I can hold on to with these hands of mine
There are too many words of betrayal.
Some time ago,
I believed in the love that I saw,
But now I want to escape this loneliness.


~ Calendula Requiem (kanonxkanon)



:iconzimiel: as Muroi Seishin

:iconkaguyaxhime: Kirishiki Sunako


Photo by :iconjkale:


Costumes by respective cosplayers.



Got distracted by other shoots and never posted any Shiki pics here! o_O; I love this series so much! Creepiness ftw 8D I intend to cos Natsuno as well, but it was awesome to cos Muroi-san and Sunako with ~kaguyaxhime their relationship is rather odd, but also very quite touching *3* I've never cosed a character this much older than my actual age before - he's in his mid-30s! lol 8'D

Many thanks to ~kaguyaxhime for cosing with this fail SAP (self abusing priest 8D), and to ~JKale for doing a wonderful job with the photos! :heart:

i don't understand why no one sells a Seishin outfit, its rather and annoying for people who only know basics of sewing. I really wanted to cosplay as him but i can't. You're lucky you could, anyway you did a great job.

I kinda wish the series had a conclusive ending...
Can't wait to see you cosplay as Natsuno! Or even Toshio?
Reply
:iconzimiel:
zimiel Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
well, the anime prettym much did...everyone's dead except Sunako, Muroi and Toshio? 8'D The manga is ongoing though *u*

hmm I'd like to think I'm not old and grizzled looking enough to cos Toshio... 8'D *awkward laugh*

Loved this series and Muroi was my favourite character! Checked out the set, you both look great as your chosen characters and the shots and edits are perfect for the series. Are you both wearing scleral lenses?

:iconzimiel:
zimiel Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
oh yay, I'm glad you liked him! Although I have to say his lack of inclination to live annoyed me lol... thanks very much! =D And no, I shopped Sunako's eyes black, and mine in the last shot *3* Sclera lenses are expensive and painful 8'D

Well done with the shooping, it kicks arse . . . . the whole set is wicked, really good atmosphere
