After participating in It’s Itsuka‘s Princess Jellyfish photoshoot in the afternoon, I had the honor and privilege of crashing her Fate/Zero (Feito/Zero / フェイト/ゼロ) photoshoot in the evening! xD Still tagging along with Sojian-senpai and friend on Day 2 of FanimeCon 2014, we met up with Itsuka and JestersLabyrinth Cosplay, who were already shooting with another photographer (only know the photogs’ real names, sorry). Soon, we were joined by Akai-Chan Cosplay and Photography and that’s when things got really fun!
Itsuka was still getting ready, but I just really like this shot. 😀
Cat face! :3 I’m not really familiar with the Fate series so even though I believe Illyasviel von Einzbern (イリヤスフィール・フォン・アインツベルン) is technically from Fate/stay night (Feito/sutei naito / フェイト/ステイナイト), I’m still going to call it Fate/Zero. 😉
Akai-Chan Cosplay and Photography was Saber (セイバー)! This came out super dark and usually these kinds of shots end up in private derp albums, but I think this is pretty much Saber’s character so this is canon, haha.
JestersLabyrinth Cosplay was Irisviel von Einzbern (アイリスフィール・フォン・アインツベルン), Illya’s mother. I love that Saber is photobombing this family portrait while enjoying her pita!
I feel sleepy all the time at con, too. e-e
With so many other more skilled shooters taking photos, I always think it’s somewhat of a minor miracle for me to get decent shots of one person looking at me, let alone more than one. xD;
You can tell when cosplayers are comfortable with one another because they’ll do little things like Akai-Chan is doing with Itsuka’s hair without prompting, which makes everything feel more natural!
After a break for snackies, there were more photo adventures outside! Cropped to 4×5 on this one since I shot it portrait and there was too much head space. ^^;
While some photogs like to turn photoshoots into serious business, I really enjoy laid-back shoots where everyone is relaxed and just having fun, and I hope the good time we all had shows in these photos!
