Totally raw and uneditted. Taken by a phone camera. Something new and refreshing?
With all the extensive photoshop nowadays, you can't tell who is phoney and who is not. I could just wear my underwear and photoshop the entire costume on. Or photoshop my face onto someone else's body.
Personally, i always go for a more live-action feel. Animated entries FTW! And it doesn't feel right to rely on a photographer's exceptional skills to make myself look good. Also i'd prefer someone telling me "Wow you look better in person!" rather than the other way around
Sure the picture is ugly, and i'm sorry for that. But in my gallery, it should only be about the cosplay. And the crack/omake too of course!
