I actually don’t have a lot to say about this photoshoot except that it was tiring and difficult to organise. I’m just glad we got some nice photos in the end =) We shot this in a hotel room and the premise around the hotel. I’m glad that the busy nightlife of the area has given the outdoor shots a nice touch xD
Special thanks to Brian for helping us with this shoot despite his busy schedule.
Also much thanks to Zephyus for cosplaying Ren/Cain heel with me xD Intimate shots are always embarrassing =_=;;;
There wasn’t a lot of poser-ish pictures of the siblings for reference so we pretty much just try to make things up along the way. With Zephyus and Brian laughing a lot at me D< *angries*
I’ll leave zephyus to post her own solo pictures in her gallery so erm sorry, I’ll just be spamming my Setsu below.
“I don’t care if it’s hell that I’m living, I just need my brother to be with me”
The biggest reason why I decided to cosplay Setsu was really to expand my genre/horizon. So many years into the hobby and I find myself cosplaying the same types of character… decided it was time for me to challenge myself more. And Setsu seemed like the right choice *_*
To me, Setsu is weird. She is a weird punk that has an almost incestual relationship with her brother. That alone makes me think that half of her is already in hell, and she probably enjoys it. Which makes for a dangerous, interesting and seductive allure. Which is what I set out to achieve.
I told Brian that I wanted a closeup that almost looks like I’m on drugs (Which I of course am NOT!) , maybe a little unsteady, dangerous and fallen at the same time. I also kept forcing Brian to make sure my accessories were visible xD
I don’t think I achieved everything I set out to but I tried… and this is my favourite closeup ever *_* And yes I’m thankful Photoshop exist in this world!
This is a costume that I will never wear to an event until I start working out LOL. Okay, I know some people might think I’m phishing for compliments and tell me they hate people like me who they assume is very thin and instantly labels them as people who have no right to complain about their size.
Even though I can sort of understand where they were coming from, It was still quite hurtful to read their comments. To make it clear, I have NEVER said I am fat, I only said the costume makes me FEEL fat because it exposes so much of my less than desirable areas. Every girl have the right to have her insecurities =_= I had to suck in so much and for the entire week before the shoot, I had to either skip dinner or eat light. I also skipped food the entire day of the shoot.
I guess I’m just a teeny weeny upset that sometimes, people just assumes things about other people they don’t know and pushes their own expectation on them. It feels like “Oh I’m sure she’s just a b*tch that was born and wakes up looking like her perfectly photoshopped and made up photos and thus must have no challenges in life nor an ounce of extra fat on her to lose. Her life must be perfect and I hatttttteeee that”
I know I’m reading too much into this but hey, just because your feelings were hurt (due to your own interpretation of matters ) doesn't mean you have the right to hurt mine. It almost feels like they think that hurting me were a correct thing to do =_= ;;;
I’m not angry with them on a personal basis, I just want to speak up from my POV. I’m tired of people assuming things about me and you’ll be sorely disappointed to know I am no doormat.
Assuming just makes an “ass'” out of you and me. And yes, I will avoid posting any weight comments in the future.
“Nee-san looks hot in that outfit”
This angle make me look thinner than I actually am xD
I’m sorry the post ended in such a harsh tone. Don’t worry, I’m not scarred/upset, its all just part of a learning journey for me. I just feel the need to share my perspective of the matter and since I have a blog, its only right I put up my honest voice, no 8D?
Many people have suggested me to get guest writers to write this blog to lesser my load. But IDK, other than the fact that managing people is difficult, whether they will write in line with TCC’s vision is also an issue. Ok I don’t know what the heck I’m writing nao.
There are more photos to come and I’ll write a seperate entry on the costume/wig soon. Remember to leave me a comment to share with me your opinion on the “Fat” issue. If you want to post something nasty, go ahead, I respect difference in opinions. But please have the guts to post with your name/blog url. Don’t be an anonymous coward ;D
