Surprisingly, I have never shot a Black Cat cosplay.. ever. That was the striking motivation for this shoot since Katie approached me to do a shoot with her.
People have called her the Anne Hathaway look alike.. and I won't argue that for a second... and honestly, it has begun talk of a big project this year with Katie which is all a surprise
This shoot was pretty cool.. and quite easy. Why, you say? Because it is done in my basement/storage area of my condo. I didn't have to lug my gear to some place that needed a permit or a place where I couldn't control light.. It was perfect.
Katie was a blast to work with. We collaborated the shots together and her eye and style was very welcomed to the final images.
This was shot with 3 lights - all 3 are CTO gelled since the basement was cluttered with incandescent bulbs.
The first (and possibly the best) photo from the Black Cat shoot we did last week!
I actually didn't decide to make this costume myself - I was asked to make it for a web series pilot I was recently in! There's a lot of really cool people involved that you guys may recognize. As soon as it's out I'm going to be spamming it everywhere, so stay tuned! It was a really unique opportunity and I hope I get to do more. It was fun making a costume for something other than a convention, as well.
Costume made and modeled by me. (with the exception of the mask. That was borrowed from a friend)
