Persona 4 - Izanagi 01

"One of the ancient gods who existed before Japan was formed. He created the Ouyashima from chaos, then gave birth to countless children and laid the foundation of soil and nature."

—Compendium Info

Izanagi (イザナギ, Izanagi) is a Level 1 Persona of the Fool Arcana, and the initial Persona of the protagonist.

A very short but hectic shoot, less than an hour duration for set-up and shoot, only had around 20 odd shots in total.

5 flashguns were used in total for the shot (one of the most I've used so far). Certainly an enlightening experience playing with lighting set-up!

* 1 x main, on the front right
* 2 x background fill light, with orange gel filters to light up the building on right
* 1x fill on immediate left (blue filter), 1x fill on the extreme right (blue filter)

P.S The smoke/mist is real - using a portable smoke/mist generator.

Thanks to Amano, Kosmo, and ~farizasuka for the logistic support.

Oh my lord, that's like my dream cosplay right there. The recently shown P5 persona might give it a run for it's money though!

I don't know how you're standing or seeing, but that's secondary to my love for this cosplay. You . . . just . . . wow. Amazing.

Those shoes! Or... whatever you call them. Is it tough to stand with those? I've always marveled at the Izanagi cosplayers who can pull that part off o.o

Nicely executed photo. Did you need any permission from the city to set this up?
