Toradora: Tenori Taiga

Even if I'm little, there's something that I can't lose to anyone at!

Endure it until I get closer to you!

- lyrics from Toradora! first OP, Pre-Parade

Taiga Aisaka was known around school for her short stature and doll-like appearance - paired with her volatile temper. This earned her the nickname, Tenori Taiga (Palmtop Tiger), which did not please her at all. Although people can be quick to judge, there is much more to her than the nickname implies...

:bulletred: Ysabel as Taiga Aisaka
:camera: photography by me *behindinfinity

I'm extremely happy we were able to have a proper cosplay shoot for Toradora! It's another series that has some to be one of my favorites (thank you for the DVDs, Essa). As much as Gurren Lagann made me cry manly tears, Toradora! made me bawl sissy girly tears. Hahaha! But don't get me wrong; it's not one of those shoujo series! I guess it's a slice-of-life school anime/manga. It got to me because it's very relatable, and it just feels... real. I'll stop rambling about it for now.

After a very long period of busy schedules that would not sync, as well as continual rainstorms, we decided to take a chance for this photoshoot. Miraculously, the sun shone for us that day.

It was great being able to spend the day with friends and getting some much-needed photography practice - with my favorite Taiga cosplayer in the whole wide world. :D

I have a lot I want to say but this wall of text is already so long, and I can't allot myself too much time to laze around dA. Must dedicate time for learning, and ample recreation to keep me sane. Until the next journal update, then!

The lighting in this piece works really well. Not to much contrast but just enough to give a hard edge.
