The third time's a charm. We have attempted to do this shoot twice before with awful results. Got to pick up alot of learnings along the way though. We also didn't give up on the idea for the potential it had. I guess it had to take time, the maturity and to meet the right people to get the concept off the ground properly. It was Carlo's work that provided the last piece of the puzzle.

I had to learn some concepts of fashion design to get the costume right. Given the flaws of the construction from the previous versions, I made the design and functionality, taking into account Alodia's comments on how the previous version worked out for her.

Riki's Black Cat costume has always caught my attention. It was one of the those costumes I had to request from her when we did the shoot last October 2011 during NYCC.

Sin City was the inspiration for the color grading and styling of the image.

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.

Psylocke Ver. 1


Psylocke was one of the first cosplay shoots we ever did three years ago, and I thought she deserves a revisit, given the kind of experience and knowledge we have earned through the years. I hope we did her character justice this time around.

Edit (08.05.11): It's featured in Marvel.com!

I've always wanted to do cosplay shoots of local characters, and Trese immediately came under consideration after picking up Book 1. It's our small way of supporting the resurgence in local comic book titles.

The pop-culture scenes in Japan or the U.S. has grown huge mainly of their own market's patronage of their characters. Because of their eventual global influence, other markets end up having to consume them (e.g. Philippines). When we start loving our own home-grown pop-culture enough to tip over the scales, is perhaps the start of the real growth in our local scene.

On Lighting the Image

Just because a scene is "dark" it doesn't necessarily have to be really dark when it is shot. Trese took about 14 lights to accomplish, all of which used small modifiers and honey comb grids. Our eyes and in turn, subconscious imagination process light at a naturally fast pace. So fast, that we don't seem to care, and take it for granted. We needed to step back and look at this process from a 3rd person, and translate how our eyes and mind consume all this information and turn it into actual lighting techniques.
