While I’d seen and taken photos of Paprika Mari at several different events, it wasn’t until the AX St. Paddy’s Day Event that I finally got to actually meet her! We kept in touch, and when she said she wanted to take some pictures of her Clover Field (Yotsuba) cosplay from Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward, I couldn’t say no! We met up on the afternoon of Day 2 at Fanime to hang out and shoot!
Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward is the sequel to the visual novel game Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors (aka 999). While Clover appears in both games, this is how she looks in the sequel.
The sun was especially harsh so we hid among the trees a lot. ><
I was actually late to our shoot due to a panel and Mari had another event to go to so we didn’t get to hang out very long, but I’m glad we got to shoot together!
It was our first time shooting together, and Mari was a trouper! We had lots of fun trying out different things!
Tried some different editing techniques for this shoot; hope everything looks right. ^^;
When Mari mentioned that time was an important part of the game, I wanted to recreate the iconic shot from the poster for one of my favorite films, Back to the Future!
See more of the multi-talented Paprika Mari in the album on my new Facebook Page!
