So here's the promised second post for today.
...Since I got myself a long weekend we decided to head out together with Rumi and do a small photo shoot at the "Landschaftspark" here because the weather was starting to become really nice again.
In two weeks there's taking place one of my favourite convention again: The Dokomi in Düsseldorf!
I'm pretty excited about it and one of my planned cosplays will be a new one (the other is Kuu again).
It's Shiro Yoshiwara from the more and more popular manga 'Adekan' by Tsukiji Nao.
I simply loooove his character! He's mysterious, cheeky, elegant and somewhat cute but also a little arrogant and creepy sometimes. A 16-years old umbrella maker with a dark background...
The manga's not really Shounen-Ai but has a touch of it now and then, has a lot of humor, crime cases and simply stunning artwork. ♥
I can just recommend to everyone who hasn't read it yet! (In Germany it's also available in book stores.)
Here are some impressions of the character Shiro:
Yeah, right, a black haired boy again.. somehow.. I'm destinied to cosplay boys with black hair? lolI don't really know..
Well, cosplayers here aren't that rare anymore, but what you mostly see are a few extravagant cosplays like from the outfit in the fourth picture - but rarely anyone pays attention to his/her face, impression and wig.. it seems like if you have a great outfit, everything else doesn't count. Well..I'm not a really good crafter so I'm not gonna do what everyone else does.. you'll see. :3'
Anyways I wanted to practice posing and stuff so we did a small test shoot in a very improvised outfit consisting of my yukata and a self made hakama..
But here are the results:
What do you think? :3I hope with the final result I can catch the atmosphere of the manga and the character eventhough I'm not the best and elitest cosplayer...
