Here we go!

We'd planned the shoot about a week in advance, but little did we know, the day of the actual shoot was probably the windiest day of the year. My wig styling got completely ruined the moment I stepped out of the car (Alex said he heard the wind howl in his ears, and it was so strong that my jacket kept flying off of my shoulders). However, since we made the trip out there already, we decided to take photos anyway. So, I apologize for my wig. Maybe one day I'll get shots of it when it's properly styled.




Also, the wind was so strong that if I faced it, it dried out my eyes immediately, hence I look squinty in a lot of these. It was physically painful to keep them open.



As always, all photography credits go to Alex, who is not only a kick-ass photog but a great friend =)

IMO the messy wig kinda adds to it. I know that in anime the hair is perfect, but I like things that look more real.

And you look awesome

I was actually quite surprised at how the wig didn't look THAT terrible when messy. Although, being a perfectionist, I'd have liked for it to say put.

Thank you! ♥

This is so many levels of awesome. You make such an amazing Yoko.

Kudos for putting up with the unfavourable conditions. :)

D'aww, thank you! I really appreciate it!

Ergh. That damn wind! We hope to re-take these once it's nicer out!

You look AMAZING!

Aw, thank you so much! =D I was actually quite pleased with the fact that I didn't have to (for once) shop out my butt in these xD

You look smokin! I wish you had more photos with the machine gun, though but I'm guessing it was too windy for that. ^^;

Thank you!

If you look closely, one of the panels on the gun is coming off xD The wind was tearing it to pieces hehe!

Wow, gorgeous poses. For some reason in that lighting, the red hair really brings out the color of your eyes. It suits you. The third picture is totally fierce - dude, you need to be a model.

From: [identity profile] perpetuus.livejournal.com
xD These are the only ones (out of 300) that were decent. The poses were SO bad in some that you'd laugh.

I hate how PB resized them. Somehow the lighting was less awful in the originals but thank you! I guess the green/red contrast worked (... except for the fact that Yoko's eyes are yellow...>> )

Ahaha! I'm waaaaay too fat to be a model. But then again, I'm not sure I'd want to be 115lbs anyway...

Even with mussy wig you look awesome ^_^

It was super windy here too >_< the cab I took from school to the train was rocking from the wind while we were stopped at a light next to the Sears Tower >_

Aww, thank you!!

Yeah, it's been oddly windy around here too. I wonder what's going on...

The weather this year has been way too weird... tonight we are expecting lows in the lower 40s to upper 30s >_< way too cold for this time of the year

Your makeup is amazing. I love the highlights of it, and how defined your eyes look. Beautiful. :3 I love your Yoko costume, too. The shorts fit great. ♥ Ho ho ho.

Thank you! A great trick I've discovered is lining your waterline on the bottom (like, the pink part that actually touches your eye) with a really thick white eyeliner. It's perfectly safe, and makes you eyes at least 1.5x bigger immediately. It's a little dramatic for every day, so I find that a peach-ish liner works wonderfully for a casual look while still achieving a similar effect.

Hehehe. I lost some weight since I made those shorts, and now they sort of stick out oddly from my body in the back, but shh, that's why there are no ass-shots >>;

Eyes: I use this - http://www.drugstore.com/qxp87810_333181_sespider/nars/eyeliner_pencil_parrot_cay.htm - yes, it's mint, but it doesn't look green once you've applied it to the waterline. Or white. It's freaking magic. Makes eyes look bigger and brighter and un-bloodshot, for us insomniacs who work on 2 hours' sleep.

That trick is freaking magic indeed. Around exam time it's the only thing that separates me from the zombie-like masses. I don't know how I lived without it!

Beautiful! The second to last is my favorite. I know how it feels to physically unable to keep your eyes open for pictures, it's so frustrating. These came out really well though. You look unreal in these, like you were a character from those final fantasy games!

Thank you!! =D

Argh, I hated how I looked squinty in 90% of the shots xD But thank you for your compliments, I'm happy that we managed to get what we did!

Your eyes look so amazing in that third shot! I just can't get over how awesome those boots came out.

Thank you so much!

It's a shame the sole of the boot is not showing, because that's what I was most proud of xD

flyaways = more fun = prettier <3

Did anyone ever tell you your face/body is made for cosplay? You really should do more and more cosplays and join competitions and whatnots =D

From: [identity profile] perpetuus.livejournal.com
Hehehe, I'd have preferred for the hair to have stayed completely solid, but surprisingly it worked out okay anyway.

Ahaha, no, no one's told me that before. I'm not huge on competitions and I don't have enough time to cosplay more than I do, but I'm so flattered that you think so! ♥

You are seriously the best Yoko I've ever seen.

Ahaha, thank you so much! I don't think that I'm the best Yoko that I've seen personally, but I'm flattered that you think so!

Gorgeous photos! I love your cosplay pictures and am envious of both your skills and the photographers skills.

[ETA] And I'm totally late on commenting because I saw this post at work where the pictures weren't coming up and I just remembered to look back.

Thank you! n__n This was actually an embarrasingly easy costume to make. I really need to get my ass in gear and stop trying to pass a pair of shorts and a bikini top as a 'costume' for next time.

Aw, thanks so much Carla! I think it might be the make-up too. You have no idea how much I was wearing that day! xD

It took me a sec to remember how I found your page.
I was looking up Yoko because a friend of mine was cosplaying her and I was going to do a photo shoot. So I wanted to know what Yoko looks like! :)
You are quite an exceptional Yoko and have a different look than the cosplayer I was photographing. Very nice pictures!

Thank you very much =) That shoot was sort of ruined by ridiculously intense winds (hence the wig) but I'm glad you enjoyed the pictures.
