"Will you return to the other side of despair?
The utmost love entrusts its unblemished body to the eternal sail"

Character: Katsura Kotonoha [link]
From: Game / Anime / Manga School Days
Cosplayer: :iconmanon-blutsanguen:
Photographer: :iconwhite-sakurazuka:

So yeah i am thinking of defo changing all these buttons to golden ones, because seriously this jacket is perfect for almost every school, suit cosplays...but it lacks golden buttons. Ah well ;_;
I decided on this because i needed something to wear that was warm (i was thinking of taking gumi love is war), and i had three people photograph me!
They all did an awesome job! I did some motion pics with :iconwanda-chi: that i love, and will post soon! Also some creepy blade close ups with :iconmagicviper: and the cute stuff was left for :iconwhite-sakurazuka:!
So, things that i need to improve! I need a new black wig because this one has side bangs (it's my kuroneko wig), and it's also really dirty and needs bath and stuff! i need a black wig with no side bangs! I need to buy more red satin ribbon to make a better ribbon (mine ended last night), and i need those goddamn golden buttons xD i swear i'll change them! Anyways i quite love this pic and how it came out!
Kotonoha is not a very fond character of my heart, i dearly prefer Setsuna, but i don't deslike her either! And i wanted to try another yandere appart from Yuno! I think my faces might be improving!

Overall it was a nice shoot and i hope to improve in the future. Who knows i might wear this to a convention or something! xD

Ps. I also hope to come up with some macro photography soon! I'm sorry if i haven't been posting anything! It's really my bad!

Pps. My lash is bothering me! One is sticking up and the other one front t.t so you can't see one of them!

Ppps. That tiny hair of my forehead is also bothering me!

I think your pose is very similar to the pose of KANA, it seems as you had copied her, do not copy, put your personal touch in your photos, that makes them look better :)…

emmm this is the first time this ever happended to me! No i did not copy kana and didn't even know of this photo of hers before! i am not a follower of kana's work that much, so i feel a bit insulted even. Why do you come up and accuse me...honestly?? i did this photo of my own volition without even knowing! this is actually not a gate, it's an actual cage, and i did a lot of photos inside it. And this is so old and why only now... i could go to your deviantart and like...find pictures of you in the same poses and situations as other cosplayers, but no i don't do that, because everybody does the same characters and similar photos will surely come out! i took this photo with no malice or not even thinking about KANA. i will even tell you something extra, this cage is the most used place for photoshoots in my country! everybody shooted there, other kotonoha's too and in the same positions!
