We made a three and a half day trip to get to our photoshoot location in a remote area with cliffs and mountains. Then, we climbed a mountain in full body pleather. o_o

We tried to match our photoshoot location with the cliffs in the trailer. There was a lot of beautiful rosy-amber granite rocks nearby, which this photo shows a peak at some of the boulders.

Hrm... Looking at this photo reminds me why I didn't sit down for the rest of the shoot. I got a cactus spine stuck deeply in my ankle during this photo! Apparently leather doesn't protect you from cacti. D:

Coincidentally, our photoshoot was also on the same day that the game was released in Japan although we had been planning this photoshoot for over half a year. 8D

Thank you ~TooSexyForYourParty! We couldn't have done it without you!

Cosplays, armor, and props made by us~ Took us about 300 hours each over a year. =o=;;;

Just as a side note - We made these cosplays in 2008 when there was only a trailer and a few concept images out. We had to zoom in a lot for little details. Character designs also changed while we were making the cosplays so some parts are a fusion of concepts. We did our best to make our cosplays as accurate as possible given the references we had to work from.

thank you! <333333

It was insane getting up to the place in the photo. We climbed for half an hour, got lost, and I ended up getting a cactus spine stuck in my foot - so we had to stop for a bit too. lol 8D

haha It was a pretty intense trip overall since we also spent a billion hours driving to remote remote mountains. o_o But it was a lot of fun and more like a road trip than anything. XD
