This is such a great shot and I would even say my fave muramasa cosplay photo I've seen!! :heart: I love how it shows both Momohime's elegance and the fighting spirit she has when possessed by Jinkuro :'DD

Really nice sense of action here. I am curious how you managed to get that splash of water up in the air-- and then proceed to slash it-- all in time for the photo. The action is conveyed so well.

Looking through your Momohime photoshoot, I have to say all the photos are excellent. Great-- and ambitious-- choice of backgrounds all of which fit her character beautifully.

And lastly, beautiful costume. All the details I can see from the costume are there-- from the flower headwear to the shoulder armor to the flower patterns to the stockings. Nicely done. :)

Firsty i would like to thank you for the long comment - its such a nice thing to talk a while about your work :)

I think water capturing is all thanks to the photographer and the team :)My friend was throwing water baloons in the air. You see, all i had to do was to slash it! ( which turned out to be pretty difficult and wet job ;) )

Thank you ! I'm glad that we managed to take that shots, also Muramasa has alot of diffrent settings which allowed us to take that photos in Poland, no japaneese shrines needed :) I'm glad you liked my costume too! Unfortunatelly after the shoot the pattern on kimono was destroyed - too long sitting in the river :(

Thanks alot for all your kind words. :heart:

You can always reapply it, right? But true.. the cosplayer goes through much not only to make the outfit, but to endure crazy weather or environmental conditions to get a good photoshoot. I'd be terrified to do that in my costumes. haha.

The water capturing makes sense-- and I figure it must have taken a while to get the exact action shot that you wanted. Did you use a real sword for that then?

To reemphasize, great costume and great choice of settings. Oboro Muramasa is a beautiful game-- and I actually helped a friend with her Torahime helmet-- though I have nothing to show for it at the moment. :p

You're welcome. :)
