Omakes of singing out our youth!

After re-re-rescheduling, we finally got to have our Star Driver trio shoot last Wednesday! Here are some of the outtakes of it~
Takuto Tsunashi @ Aly
Sugata Shindou @ K
Wako Agemaki @ Siera
Photographer @ Mark
Helper @ Yarn

Going to extreme measures (with the assistence of crates) to get accurate shadows.


Delicious Wako-vision!


The gorgeous location that we had to work with.


Stage dazzling!


Penis ties! All for one, and one wang for all!


Putting our helper crates away, craters gonna crate!


Do you mind the glass perspex clear vinyl?


Costume shot! I don't make a very good Wako (or blonde anything for that matter) but after all the pain and UGHAGANRHA of these uniforms, I think they turned out really well! Not so well was my make-up for the shoot D8 Had two key fail moments, the first was putting on my foundation before sealing my eyebrows and then putting on my wig before my eyelashes. So out of practise. OTL

And lastly...hurrr....

CrackCon 3

Last Monday week, just before Christmas, was the third CrackCon event. In some ways, it was quite different from the previous two, with being at least twice the size of them, I'd think. The ammount of people and cosplayers there was really something.



There were lots of opptunities to go to various shoot locations in Melbourne CBD during the day with photographers. My first shoot was 1925!Miku with Eli down AC/DC lane.


Before then changing into a simple outfit based off of a fanart to move around in for the rest of the event.


It was really good to meet up with people again, we even got to see the Premier!


Zak as Aladdin showing me the world! (It's over there.)


It's a thumbs up!


Common sights at these events, I stayed back to guard bags and photog equipment. XD;


After dinners, a group of us met up at our current favourite haunt to...solve unsolvable puzzles. OTL;


And the best night cap for such a day? Watching the newest anime releases and replaying suss scenes! 8D

Le jour de Miku

I've been a fan of Vocaloid since 2007, and the fandom is easily one of my favourites. All of the content is completely fan-generated, which is something that I still find really amazing and inspiring and truely unique to Vocaloid. It's a fandom that can be enjoyed on a lot of different levels (music, art, costuming, stories, technology etc.) to varying extents - you can get as much or as little from it as you like!

Because of this love, I've had a bad habit of putting off Vocaloid cosplays, until recently, as I've wanted everything to be perfect. However, with a crazy day of shooting Miku on Wednesday, I think I've finally managed to do her some justice and give a bit back to the fandom. I've been wanting to do a proper shoot with the checkered background for World is Mine since I first made it for Christie and my Madman trip to Tokyo, and it finally happened! Unfortunately, work tried to interfere with this and called me in the day before the shoot - ruining my plans to make the background. But hey! That's what 2am's for, right?

We started the day with me picking up Aeryn before we turned my lounge room into a mini studio which involved pinning the backdrop to my couch, weird limb positions, neck exercises, stuffing pillows under the backdrop to hold my head up and me sending Aeryn around the house to find things whilst I tried to hold that darn pose! D:

I'm so turning that backdrop into a blanket now!

After we'd taken an odd 400 shots of the World is Mine set up, we tidied up and I re-styled and make-up'd for Saihate. It's been a song that's really affected and helped me a lot lately, so I've been very picky with who I've wanted to shoot it with, and I'm so glad it was with Aeryn and Kate. I was close to tears a few times during the afternoon, but I don't think my make up was going to let me cry. XD;

We started Saihate in a cemetery near our houses (and the train station!) which is one of Aeryn's favourite places, and we came across these toadstools! So pretty!

We were somehow only 15 minutes late for meeting Kate (which I think is still some sort of miracle...our whole shoot day was on time!) and ended up walking to the location in the city as I wasn't 100% sure where it was.

Kate turns to a wig-brusher extraordinaire!

Who has matching photographers? I DO! Lots of love goes out to Kate and Aeryn for their help, support, laughs and friendship. <3

And a small preview of the shots that Aeryn's already processed!

CrackCon 2

Some behind the scenes shots of our Durarara!! shoot at CrackCon 2 yesterday. It was a really lovely sunny day, and there were so many more people than last time! Channel 7 even showed up to do some filming for their new show, 'A Minute to Win It', so there might be some crazy cosplayers in an add for that sometime in the future.
