Before that DD feature by
, this little corner of mine in DA hasn't been visited that much. Just wanna say a thanks for the appreciation in our work. This is really done out of passion and love for comics, anime, etc... as our weekday work is totally different in nature.
This is of course is a team effort; these images wouldn't have been possible without the help from the make-up artists, stylist, art directors, production designers, digital imagers, etc... They deserve the same kind of credit as me.
On another note, we're attending the NYCC this coming October. We're planning on shooting some cosplayers who got what it takes to join our insanity. If you're interested, throw me a note.
After the Les Femmes Fetales exhibit last February, our team took a hiatus from shooting cosplay. Simply because it was a creative brain-drainer. We did dabble in some fashion work, but I guess the itch for shooting cosplay needed to be scratched. So after 3 months of "rest", we forayed into a remake.
This was the Psylocke we did almost 2-3 years ago. We we still experimenting with new techniques, and the post production process wasn't that polished into a stream lined process. Though back then, we all considered it to be break through. I would also have to admit that this shoot wasn't well-prepared. We had minimal crew, and I wasn't really that adept in looking at the details of the costume. I relied heavily on my designer's direction in terms of how the costume was to be cut and designed.
Fast-forward... still produced by the same team, but this time carrying the lessons of past cosplay shoots. For now we could say this is ground-breaking for our team, but you'd never know years from now, we just might consider this another learning.
