Evangelion Photoshoot Info

As I've mentioned in my past journal entries, El rosiael flew home from the UK and that always means lots of cosplay projects. It's been about a year since I was given the honor of being invited to one of their shoots (by Dianne DiAnkh), and I've always been thankful for that opportunity. I love the friends I've made in the Vongola Famiglia Omertà. :D

We've been quite productive the productive bunch since she came back about a month ago. Our first project for this year is a Neon Genesis Evangelion cosplay photoshoot. (No plugsuits yet, but perhaps you'll see them in the hopefully-not-so-distant future.)

That series is a classic, so truth be told, we were rather scared about attempting it. Especially El rosiael and Chi angstxiety who were to portray Asuka and Rei, respectively. They were so terrified that they weren't able to sleep on the night before the shoot. This is actually their first official cosplay (by that I mean they aren't crossplaying male characters, for once). I honestly can't see why they don't cosplay girls more often. But they're still in denial that they actually went and did that, so if you can, kindly avoid comments that are too harsh. :)

I must say, that was one of my favorite shoots. It was fun reminiscing about Eva with everyone. And it's been wonderful hearing from other Eva fans in our submissions!

Evangelion Omake

As always, extra photos! Credits go to the people I listed above as photographers. Some photos I left unedited, but for the others I adjusted the lighting and colors. :)

Obligatory cast photo!

One of the earliest shots of the day, taken by Sandee littlesailboat.
I swear, Mic Delurianne makes such an amazing Major Katsuragi. She even has Misato's figure img408.imageshack.us/img408/68…  however exaggerated the body proportions are in Eva.

Another dawn shot by Sandee littlesailboat. Early morning lighting is lovely and calming.

We found a car that looked like it could have belonged to Misato, and of course had to take get a picture of it with Mic. XD

Rei and Asuka, perhaps on their way to school.

[hums Ode to Joy]

Us posing for a group photo of the five Children.

Erving Huzafan likes to experiment by turning up the saturation in his camera settings.
(Sandee calls it ...exsaturation :icondoublefacepalmplz:)

And now, desaturation.

Misato and Kaji

Misato is not pleased with you and your cheap tricks, Kaji.

But she'll still won't let Asuka have you.


This facial expression cannot be explained.

"Shinjiiiiiiiii! Get out of the corner of woe! I AM SO SICK of your whining!"

"Sorry, transferee. But I have to hit you. I'll never be satisfied unless I hit you."

A tribute to... KATAYAMAGELION


I creep myself out.

Rei stalking Asuka.

Asuka stalking Rei.

MY OTP. Okay, not really.

Light and shadow play.

There were nice patches of sunlight on the grass so I lay down for a portrait (and to rest a bit) while Nix starrywhitewall snapped away with her camera.

Another group photo. NERV people. OUTDOORS.

And then we discovered the wonders of El's diffusion filter.

That filter does amazing things.

It gave me wings.
(Edited version by kunebitt here)

Misato :heart:


More of Misato, because we found plants that matched the color of her hair.


...and Kaworu

...and our 'doujinshi' shot.

Why do you make us do these things? D:


...And you thought it couldn't get worse than our Death Note retirement shoot, huh?


All together now, "YES MASTER, I OBEY"

NERV Super Sentai!

Formation! Diamond Beeeeaaaaammmm!

Neon Genesis Evangelion: The Melancholy of Shinji Ikari

Afterparty at Misato's place!
(Sadly, Toji had missed out due to a run-in with a rampaging Angel-possessed Eva.)

Ah yeah, these children are in good hands.

Kaworu and Shinji blurry MySpace/Facebook-style picture.
No, I am NOT trying to get Shinji drunk enough to want to go to the bathroom again.

We're obviously just friends, see?

NERV likes to party like it's the end of the world. Because we never know when the Fourth Impact might take us by surprise.

I just visited the Youtube link again to watch the absolute glory that is "KATAYAMAGELION" and its been blocked by bandai. If we got enough people to write to bandai saying sommit along the lines of "a while ago my friend showed me [link] and it inspired me to watch the series pleas un block it" do you think they would?

The world is a darker place without that video.
