PTT: Skyline by MangoSirene PTT: Skyline by MangoSirene
Here's a little preview shot of my new Princess Kraehe cosplay! (Sorry my wig is a bit messy, the wind was crazy and this was our third or fourth photoshoot outside by that time! @_@) We're still waiting to get our photoshoot back from ~Elemental-Sight, but in the mean time we have photos from the shoot we did with Kevin! :D

I still need to do a write-up on the construction of this costume, but in the meantime, if you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask! :heart:

edit: Costume rundown is here: [link] It's a lot to read but hopefully it answers some of your questions! :3

Ah! We finally get a nice shot of the bodice! <3 It looks so amazing, and I still really like your wig. Her hair should look messy, it always looked ready to "burst into a murder of ravens" as I saw one person describe it.

We actually JUST got that shoot back from Amanda like an hour ago!! It turned out so amazingly, Abby and I have just been sitting here crying over the pictures! @_@ So I'll definitely start posting them soon - but if you want to sneak a look at 'em, they're up on Elemental's site! :D

:icontearplz: Thank you so much! These pictures are amazing! My favorites are [link] [link] [link] and [link] !!!

Can I just tell you how much I appreciate your careful footing? As a dancer, there is a certain way you must stand; a footing and a posture. I see you pose from your toes to your head and even out to your fingertips. I can't stress how much that matters especially in a Princess Tutu shoot, but in any sort of shot.

I commend the Photographer for using the lighting to tell the story in some of these shots. It translates much better in black and white than in color, even if we lose a bit of your costume's lovely detail, the shot can go from okay to complete GOLD when you make lighting a main star.

(and those candid shots had me ROLLIN'! love ya, keep it up~)

MangoSirene Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Oh my gosh, thank you for all the amazing compliments! ;o; That seriously just made my day! (And those are my favorites of the shoot, too!!)

I'm so relieved the footwork looks passable! I'm a hip-hop/modern dancer and ballet is not my forte at all, but I've started taking lessons again this semester - specifically so I could pose better in this costume, haha! So I'm really glad it helped, phew!

And yes, Amanda is astonishing when it comes to lighting, it's one of my favorite things about shooting with her! So for these costumes I absolutely HAD to get photos taken by her, especially after how amazing she was with our Tutu group at last year's Youmacon! (Like, I seriously burst into tears when I saw these pictures, she just did such an incredible job with them that it blows my mind!)

Hehe, glad you like the candids!! We were shooting in the hall by the registration line so people kept stopping us for pictures, and eventually we got tired of doing serious poses sooo it was time to goof around! xD

Ah~ so there IS a dancer's spirit in you! (how could i tell)

and you know...I got teary eyed too...but I thought that would be too weird to share. >.>

It's good to see a cosplayer that takes everything so seriously, but stays as humble as you do. Seriously glad I found you on DA. ^_^ Just keep uploading, and I'll be happy, haha.
