Roxas v.s. Riku : Deep Dive by 8-13 Roxas v.s. Riku : Deep Dive by 8-13
:iconsniperdusk: :bulletpurple: Notes from =sniperdusk =


I'm going to stick one more shot from this night up here. This one is probably my favorite since you can actually see some of the aforementioned giant screens. ^_- Saturation settings on my camera were upped to the max to get some Technicolor effects and to enhance the shadows and highlights, I dropped most of the mid-tones out in processing.


:iconsaeru: :bulletpurple: Notes from ~saeru =

Like...:ninja:. I sneak comments in here but no one will know.

This shoot was awesome. Then again, so was LA. Between the heat, the grime, the 20 blocks between hotel and convention center, and being hit on by a transvestite, nothing could be better. Sometimes I wonder why we embark on 4-day car trips to this place...
but I always enjoy myself, so we keep going back. *grins*

We had to do all these shots in 15 minutes...so Roxas and I were literally running into our next poses. But we've always wanted to do this, so...it was happy. Really happy. The end.

Wow. That's an awesome setting, it almost looks like the real setting in the game.
Nice shot as well. I like that it's at an angle. :)

*nod* That IS a good angle and nice shot....great cosplay too.
Heh, it's amazing how the outside looks almost just like the World That Never Was/Memory Skyscraper.

I like all the other pictures too, especially "No one would miss me"...for some reason.

The set was...a good set. And I like 'No one would miss me,' too, because...they did a pretty good job of recreating the feel of the scene with the scenery we had. Its just...the...presence...

Where we were in LA was completely deserted, but these huge screens kept playing all night...even though no one was around to see them.

*nod* Yes, indeed. I could feel that same presence just by looking at it. It must have been a strong one.

I see. The deserted feel makes it even better.
Well, 'nobody' was definitely around there to see them. ;)

^.^ If I had seen someone in a black coat standing on top of a building, I would not have been surprised.

...wait.
Now I really need to get on top of a building for a photoshoot. o.o

Better shots to show off the coats are coming presently...

And, you're right. I really like in this shot how the negative space is colorful and complicated and the actual subjects are a sort of frame to that. ^_- I wish more costumes lent themselves for this kind of composition.

If you ever want to try making your own coat, we've made a very comprehensive post on cosplay.com about it. ^_- I think we may actually stick a tutorial up here someday, too.

Haha, this is great, because some of the scenery actually looks fitting of the World That Never Was ;D

Not to mention the costumes are, of course, stunning (:

That's why we wanted to stop and take pictures here when we first spotted the area when first coming into AX. Except for like the trees...but luckily they look rather fake, so it's still in the spirit of tWTNW. ^_-

I have to get some photos up soon that actually show the costumes themselves off well.The coats are way more kickass that this shot even indicates.
