Ha, thanks. How do you mean, though? The different outfits? Finding locations? Transforming between looks? I've been costuming for a really long time and have always been a chameleon, but I've gotten really lucky to know a lot of awesome photographers and to be able to find some appropriate locations for everything. I shot this one on the same day as my mermaid photos, and I had no idea for a location, but my photographer has these horse stables in his backyard where we were shooting which turned out to be perfect. CHOCOBO CAGES!
The biggest issue for me is that I have so many large, visible, brightly colored tattoos, and there aren't a ton of characters that the tattoos really work for.
The tattoos don't really muck up the cosplay as much as I'd expect, actually, coming from a fan's standpoint. Well, mine at least. It's the attitude displayed that really matters, and you seem to be nailing the characters' attitudes when you do shoots. The costumes are good, but they'd be useless without a model to properly put them to work. That's where you come in.
Yeah I don't know how but you some how pull off your tattoos well with your cosplay. I think its probably the style of the tattoo's has something to do with it, or it being along a similar theme. Like a tribal tattoo would probably not go so well with a lot of shots, but 4 swords or pinball bumpers work better since a lot of your stuff is video game themed. I've never seen a pic of yours where your tattoo's really stand out, in fact I think they stand out a little more in full nudes... or have the potential to at least just because there is more of a focus on your body rather than the outfit. But it's pretty cool that you're doing the chameleon thing, must be pretty liberating not being confined to one role, people expect you to take on different looks and personas that you have the freedom to change it up as you choose. And yeah chocobos would be pretty sweet, too bad you didn't get any for your shoot . Damnit now I have the chocobo song stuck in my head >_<
