Believing visions unseen by Mayo-chan Believing visions unseen by Mayo-chan
Hunting, searching for futures I’ve dreamed
Ever chasing, believing visions unseen
Hearing that hope is futile
Only inspires me not to give up




Photography by ~NewStation

This was taken a couple of months back. I didn't see any pictures until now so I was a bit worried I'd been so ugly in the shots they couldn't be used x) Oh well... I like this one, even though my face is a bit weird.
Also, this is taken in front of my old summerhouse (yes you read that right) which is on the island in the background. Gotta love Sweden, lol. But since this location has a lot of meaning to me I am very happy I was able to shoot a cosplay here.

Where did you find the trim? Or did you have to hand sew the neck/seam designs?

Well, you should know what I think of your cosplay (if you don't: it is always awesome and I can't believe I've met you in real life), so lets skip that. Lets skip you and give a proper comment to Meru instead, since I think she did most of the job after you've made the costume and put on a wig and make up? Correct me if I'm wrong (but I think I'm not)

My first thought when I saw this was that it was an awesome photoshop-job! The lightning looked so realistic and so on. Then I figured that the picture was actually taken with that background.

The fact that this picture is taken when the sun is going down makes the shutter time longer which makes the water smoother and not "still". It adds to the smoother and more unrealistic/animated feeling to the picture. Also the sky being orange/yellow and blue also adds to this feeling as that is how the sky usually is painted at sun down/up.

What I would have wanted was for Linn to stand a bit more off-centre (in my opinion more to the left). This to give the photo a bit of a feeling of her looking "over the picture to something far away". Not sure how to put it... ^^;

But, all in all, I love the photo. It is brilliant! I really feels real, as in taken from the game. The background and lightning in the picture is amazing, can't believe you have a place like that at hand, and taking it during sundown/up is brilliant! Such amazing colours it adds to the picture. I also like Linn's pose, not quite sure exactly what it is, might be that it is you Linn, but, yeah you know how I am ;D

Now I have no idea what I've been writing, a lot of bullshit I would guess, but yeah. Enjoy a wall of text for comment! 8DD

Du får ett svar på svenska. För du är speciell.<3

Det var faktiskt inte allt för mycket photoshop arbete bakom det hela. Det Linn gjorde var såklart dom typiska delarna (dvs manboobs ) och det jag gjorde var bara att fylla ut färgerna bara en aning eftersom bilden redan såg typ ut såhär.

Jag tycker att hon redan stod i ett sorts centrum, men det är vad jag tror, och självklart kan du tycka tvärtom. Jag brukar aldrig välja att låta personen eller det objekt jag fotograferar stå i centrum för jag tycker att både det jag fotar och dess bakgrund ska få lika mycket uppmärksamhet. Så därför (äntligen kommer jag till punkt) kom inte ens tanken till mig att jag kanske skulle ha redigerat henne mer så det var mer fokus på henne eftersom detta är något jag tog utav en halv slump då jag inte tänkte mig för och fick skynda på mig lite innan Linn förvandlades till en fast frusen fiskpinne. xD

...oj nu såg jag senare att du menade tvärtom... lol. fan. ehm. Ja! Jag tog såna bilder och jag har nog kvar några...jjjjaaaa... jooo. JO. Eller va fän. Det är halv två på morgonen okej!!?

Just på den punkten där denna bild togs så fan det hus överALLT och jag ville självklart inte ha med det. Som t.ex. där solen gick ned fanns båtar och massa hus och så på den andra sidan så fanns det en skitsnygg fabrik som hade passat perfekt men det stod folk vid bryggan på den sidan med och allt gick åt bajs och ja det hade inte sett så final fantasy ut. If you get what I mean~

Men jag ska ta åt mig din och min egna kritik. xD Usch, vi får snacka om den här bilden när vi ses. SNART!!!!

Och tack för dom andra snälla orden! Blir extra glad utav att höra dom från dig eftersom jag respekterar dig som fotograf och person! m(_ _)m <33

Hahah, jag tar det som att du inte tänkte på inställningarna på kameran alls? ;D

Alltså du behöver inte försvara dig xD Och man kan flytta på Linn också, man måste inte flytta på bakgrunden ;D

Snart tycker jag låter som en bra plan. Har dock mycket planerat (som vanligt...) :<

Wäh. Tyst med dig :<

THIS IS THE ONE I SAW ON TUMBLR.
And its a really gorgeous photo, so i dont like these negative words like thinking you'd look ugly! You never look ugly! (But then...I see the pictures you post up...and no ones going to post an ugly picture)
The island in the background, sea, everything is bloody perfect. In fact this photo is almost 'romantic' in a sense. Have you got any of the other characters to cosplay with yet??

Mayo-chan Featured By Owner May 8, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
Hahaha yes! This was taken in March in Sweden and the first (sunny!) pictures were taken in England in February - both by different photographers. I haven't seen much from either shoot and usually, when pictures turn out good, the photographer is really excited about it and will edit them right away. If not, it will take time and sometimes you might never get to see them :/ Of course, photographers are sometimes very busy and usually they're my friends so I try not to press them about it, but still this is the usual pattern. If you don't see any pictures in weeks and sometimes months you have reason to worry you've done a shitty job as a model. I still don't have much confidence when it comes to the modelling (most of the time I have no idea what to do!) which means it is always a bit of hit and miss. Body language is so important when it comes to crossplay and I often make stupid mistakes. I am also known for some pretty wonky faces :facepalm:

I really love the Shi ni yuku sekai-world (sorry I'm too lazy to look up the English name x) Dying world?) with the neverending snowscape and fantastic music. This was an attempt to recreate some of that feeling as well as his background story which was a very strong scene to me. I know some people didn't like it (haters gonna hate) but I was touched by it. I wish I could've had mountains for the background though. This country is trees wherever you go...! :pissed: Would have to go to Kiruna to take pictures xD

~anarkistbavern is cosplaying Serah - both versions. We've planned cosplaying Lightning and Serah together for a long time and I've been working on the cosplay on and off for about a year. I hope to finish it in about a month's time, but still a lot left to do as usual and extremely expensive Dx The main reason I did Noel was because I needed something that would fit in a suitcase when I when I went to Hyper Japan with her in February. I was supposed to join her and her friend who would've been xiii-2 Snow. Sadly I was the only one sort of finished with my costume x) but I will be taking more pictures with her both as Noel and Lightning this summer and Shiki also expressed a wish to cosplay Hope sometime in the future.

Only cosplay that was done in the time is Schneizel x) ironic isn't it? It's the only cosplay I wasn't that fired up for because someone else picked it for me. I should stop cosplaying what I want and just let others pick random characters for me! 8D
