This photo was taken by Kenji during Anime LA 2011, nearly one year ago. Its been really popular on his DA page, and since the hits have died down a bit now, i guess i'll finally upload it to mine. He has some amazing photography work that he puts a lot of time and effort into so, its definitely worth taking a look at.
I guess with the release of a new trailer during the Spike Video Game Awards, i wanted to upload this onto my DA page finally. Hehe, Platinum Games, hmm, they worked on Bayonetta and Devil May Cry so, this should be pretty interesting.
Theirs so much wear and tear on the cosplay that I retired it after SDCC 2011. That and getting bigger didn't help on a form fitting cosplay, lol. I'm not sure if i'll attempt at a repair/remake of it, but i guess its possible. Use some better techniques the 2nd time around.
