Special thanks to Harvey Tolibao and Carlo Pagulayan for helping us with the art direction, and just providing a ton of laughs.

Back in 2008, we also had Rhian cosplay as Rogue for my Pop Nostalgia exhibit. Somehow, I felt that she just had to reprise her role again. And we weren't mistaken.



Edit (02.06.11): Marvel.com featured this image in their website! Just having the Marvel watermark gave me goosebumps. [link]

Edit (10.15.11): Chris Claremont, one of the creators of the XMEN and the creator of Rogue, signs the print in NYCC 2011.

Big kudos to Solenn... she's not just an awesome model, but a great make-up artist too. She even came in all made up already. Plus she did her own prosthetics for the scars and blood. I was amazed. Total pro.

And of course, thanks to :iconguisadong-gulay: for literally illustrating the peg / pose for us during the shoot. We shall now call this, "The Carlo Pagulayan Action Shot"

Also curious to note, the claws were made out of real metal. Wish they came in adamantium though. We're coming up with two versions of X-23, one teen (which is this one) and one adult version (still be to shot).

“The phoenix hope, can wing her way through the desert skies, and still defying fortune's spite; revive from ashes and rise.”

- Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra

This was a dream cosplay shoot for me. I mean, Phoenix was a character I've been itching to pull off a cosplay shoot on. I've attempted Phoenix several times with a lot of learnings in the process instead of a final shot. But we kept at it, believing that one of these days we would be able to do justice to the character. After more than a year of researching, and imagineering... I hope this new attempt of ours would also ignite your imagination.

The elements you see in the shot were taken through photography. We shot every bit, parcel, and what-have-you, then pieced them all together in post-production.

This is the toughest cosplay shoot we have done to date in terms of effort and time. Took about two weeks and to wait for the right weather to shoot the background.
