I think I'm starting to have a consistent level of photoshoots when they're done in Parking Lots.
I don't know why but my Kagamine Len was done in a parking lot and I liked the effect immensely. Although the semi-basement was not ideal for his karakuri burst outfit if you didn't want to be dehydrated after.
In no particular Order:
I have several more shots, that probably will be dropped on here some other time. But yeah, out of most of those shots I liked these three immensely. Some of my top 10 are spread around my other cosplay accounts, but I don't want to be redundant so at the least I used two other CC cosplay shots that are different. I hope it isn't nauseating.
Supposedly, though I don't think it applies anymore,
when you get older you get wiser. Age begets wisdom, that sort of thing. Although looking at how it works out with information and technology being the way it is... the younger generation would be more or less wiser than the older folks because of the environment.
But that's not the point, anyway, aside from collecting wigs I also like collecting contact lenses that I don't even wear as often as I should. Each pair could range from 300php to 800php. And a very long time ago, it used to be at 1,200php a pair for a year's worth.
Ok, so those things aside, what happens during my birthday? Well, nothing really I just go out and look at the weather and sigh to myself at how beautiful it is. Draw at the end of the day. And at the middle of it, I eat something good and treat myself to a good drink.
Quite the loner

A WIP sometimes becomes forgotten, or is changed on purpose. Though sometimes there are more reasons not to continue, maybe a friend backed out and the group never pushed through. Maybe because you’re having financial problems or that there are new fandoms present.
In any case, I have had complete costumes that never have seen the daylight. And I’m trying to lessen it now. Here’s a list to STICK to those plan until the end:
There was a reason why the character had something that brought you to liking them
2. Think about the money
Even if you’ve just simply bought the costume, am pretty sure there are some regrets that you’d get if you just leave that costume to gather dust. More so if you made it, there’s a lot more regret. There's also the fact that when you get ahead of yourself and buy the wig as well as the materials. But then Character X comes in, and he's oh so cool! You just HAVE to cosplay him tomorrow!
Slap yourself, look at how much money you've spent and track back. You might be causing your own financial deficit. But then, if you're like some of my friends... money isn't really a problem. So we'll move on to no. 3
Stick to just one, or at most 4 characters in a list
3. You can’t cosplay ‘everyone’. NO. You just can't.
You see this character in a manga, you want to cosplay it. You see this game character, and then his brother and you want to cosplay them both. Then the series after that, and then the movie version of… You get my point? Stick to just one, or at most 4 characters in a list and plan them carefully. With this, you’d have room for more plans.
(As am pretty sure you’ll gather more fandoms) Basically, make room for plans, and don't decide so hastily. Remember there's also time and money as well as other people's feelings involved (if you're in a group and you fail to deliver)
So I've started with the polo only version, and am climbing my way up to CC and her Ashford uniform versions. I plan to do more of her versions soon enough. As long as time and money would allow.
Code Geass is one of my favorites, both chapters are well done and the story line just keeps on getting better. The end was rather sad, but it just made the lead character Lelouch Vi Britannia look all the more loveable.
You could say, that my love for the series, has finally made me cosplay one of the female characters. (Although I really wanted to to Lelouch he was obviously rather tall)
Not everyone has the time, money or the venue to shoot so sometimes we have to be as resourceful as we can. It's not as outstanding as most shots, but at the least we can get to a decent overall look.
I'm no expert, am simply a casual photographer. While my course did teach me various techniques, framing, and the science behind a Digital SLR, I am not really that good with setups or memorizing proper aperture values and the likes. I am also not too fond of buying too many lenses much like other people I know. I just hope this helps anyone out there interested in doing the same effect.
