MEMBERSHIP GIFT! zomg *__*
Firstly - someone bought me a year's premium membership?!?!? *________* Whoever you are, kind anonymous person, I am so grateful to you!
Now I can freely spam you all with overly long journals for another year FUFUFU >D
Speaking of which... it's time for a catch-up on shoots BTS photos!
(Greetings new watchers - for you who do not yet know, every now and then I dump LARGE numbers of outtake photos from shoots in my journals. This is one of those times. ^_^)
A while ago now, decided rather last minute to do a shoot for Akise Aru from Mirai Mikki~~
Made the jacket etc the night before, and then did the shoot with the help of ~JKale
Most fun part was creating a very gory death scene in this construction site no-one was working on kyahaha >D The blood looked really quite real irl, I think we freaked out the few bystanders who happened to walk past 8"D
was like 'omg DON'T TOUCH ME' ahahaha
Then I had to try and wash the fake blood off before leaving the location, so that I wouldn't look like a murder victim wandering around town...thanks so much to ~JKale
for recording this process on camera...'orz... >__>
Much love for Mirai Nikki! I want to cos Minene as well *uuu*
Next up was a great use of a public holiday - getting :devrinxhime: to help ~JKale
and I shoot our long-awaited/long-delayed Fullmetal Alchemist cos!! *AAAAAAAA* So amazingly happy we got to do this finally GYAAAAAHH *happy tears*
As such you must suffer an onslaught of outtake photos
The shoot was just so much fun! I had way to much fun being inappropriate and getting Riza's gun shoved in my face most of the afternoon LOLOL
I honestly do not recall how we ended up doing this (probably just me being retarded lolol) but we decided that this photo looks like part of 'if FMA were a musical~'
with epic helper ~raspipop
Cool Colonels climb on bins to get the right angles for photos LMAO
And dedicated soldiers hold said wobbly bins for me so I don't fall off and break my neck 8"D~kaguyaxhime
very...very...high up...in heels...lol...epic cameko position XD;;
We shifted locations then to recreate the transmutation/blindness scenes~~ /cue ugly sobbing/ crawled around on the ground for ages trying to get the stupid circle right lmao
MOAR BLOODS >D
Had no idea this photo was taken LOL I was just waiting for Riza to finish her bleeding shots
Trying to pose together but me not wanting any blood to get on the shiny uniform..lol...almost managed it ><;~raspipop
models Riza's jacket-turned-blood-cleaning-cloth~
I CAN TICK A DREAM COS OFF MY LIST NOW AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH /screams a little/
And then the following weekend ~kaguyaxhime
and I did our last shoots for the UtaPri photobook RESONANCE
! thank you so so very much to our long-suffering, very patient photographer ~JKale
. WE LOVE YOU!!
Beautiful people we are~
I...actually really like these outfits...lol >_____>
I think my taste has been seriously warped by too much UtaPri rofl
Cooking times~!! FUFUFU~
We also did one more shoot that day which shall remain secret
until SMASH rofl
I also did a Luka shoot that weekend! Haven't cosed her in aaaaaggeess... o__O;; For the yuyoyuppe song 'Psychopath. Thanks to ~kaguyaxhime
for shooting and helping with bloody backdrop!
holding the backdrop which kept blowing everywhere in the wind 'orz
Then last weekend I cosed Judal from Magi! Slaved the day before making the costume and props lolol...I should stop doing things so last minute and plan ahead a bit more ;A; >_>
Created an arabian tent out of silks from my fabric box! *A* And were filmed by a film crew. LOL. They were doing a documentary assignment...I got interviewed and they filmed the shoot...I kept thinking it must have been really boring for them, but maybe not? idk lol 8'D
Not how you throw feathers in photos
Very pleased with how the tent turned out uhuhu
Although as an aside, got quite a few 'too thin' related comments on the pic I uploaded here on dA from this shoot...just...like seriously? o_O I'm really not that thin...and the way some people were phrasing their comments was very insensitive and hurtful... I eat heaps lol, but if someone /did/ have an eating disorder, and received comments like that, it would seriously not help - how does abusing anyone make them feel better about themselves? =__=
anyway sorry for serious note - I was just kinda shocked...
And then the most recent shoot was done last Monday night (in the freeze...so cold...omg...) - first proper night shoot with my lighting equipment!! Cosed Kyoko from Madoka Magica *A* Thank you so so much to ~JKale
for helping!!! It took ages omg...almost died of pneumonia rofl... Special thanks to ~princelingcat
who is epic at pose directing! *__*
this is the lights /not/ working lol...
Waiting for lighting positions, wearing a jacket so I didn't die...legs were really cold though waahh...
But having whined that I didn't suit her at all and would never cos the series...I was really pleased with the photos!! *333*
And finally, my new batches of cos cards arrived!! WHHEEEEEEE~~
I hope I can give them to you if we meet at a convention sometime this year!! *A*
It's almost exam time for me...so I shall be entering my study bunker and hibernating in gloom until mid-June ;___; Worst thing about my birthday timing - always during exams!!! GYAH! >__<;;
