This is my very first photo shoot with cosplayers so I just DIED when Mr. Shutter Box invited me to
join their crew. 😀 A very funny man who really has a gift of producing pictures with life. Along
with Mr. Bernard Garbo, they helped me to become familiar in Cosplay Photography and I totally
enjoyed it. Actually I now much prefer going to photo shoots than cosplay conventions (just
message me if you want to invite me ^_^), but it doesn’t mean I’ll totally quit going to conventions.
It’ll only be lessen. And with the help of these photo shoots, I get to know more about the
cosplayers and we were able to know each other personally. We don’t just take pictures, we bond. 😀
The photo shoot took place at La Mesa Eco Park, Philippines (name is self-explanatory). I enjoyed
the adventurous spirit the place have and the moment I stepped at their entrance I knew that
I’m gonna be Lara Croft for a day (with cameras as weapons) :D. The photo shoot’s theme is
Victorian Era. Victorian Gowns, Butler’s suit, Visual Kei Gowns or Gothic Lolita, and
Yukata/Kimono are the only costumes allowed. I would also love to let you know the people behind

I was mistaken at first as one of the models (*blush blush*) HAHHAHA! I prefer being a
photographer 😀 There were some problems before the photo shoot fortunately we are still able to
continue the photo shoot. At first I was totally shy, since I’m new to this higher level of the world of
cosplaying but Mr. Garbo just instructed me what I have to do and everything went well. The
cosplayers as well as the photographers are easy to get along and we enjoyed the venue until its
closing time. So here are some of the images I took.
My first shot of the cosplayers as I’m too shy to approach them at first hahaha!
Ms. Nica Salazar, one of the cutest cosplayers I’ve ever seen. She’s like Rosalinda (noon-time show back
in 90’s) in this costume. She has a jolly personality that makes her more lovable. 🙂 Her costume is
a red and black Ciel Phantomhive from the anime “Kuroshitsuji”.
Anna Espejo is the first girl I was able to work during the shoot. She’s a little shy but fun to work
with. Anna cosplayed an original character during the shoot.
I forgot to ask his name (so dumb of me hahaha!) good thing he commented on this post 😀 his name
is Mr. Zai Carreon Taggueg. Gomenasai onii-san Zai!
I was really attracted by his character. Nicely done cosplay! *thumbs up* I love the hair and the
eyes!! Mr. Joseph Adrian Esteban got the same charm as Sebastian Michaelis of Kuroshitsuji.
Ms. Ain Villanueva is a silent type of girl but so good to work with. I bet she’s smart, and its so
surprising that even under the scorching heat of the sun she never loses her poise. Her costume is
based on the Gothic-Lolita fashion from Japan.
She is the only character I know of all the cosplayers during the shoot and that made me want to
take her pictures so badly. Unfortunately, she suddenly got lost of my sight and I was only able to
to meet her during the late afternoon, but hey I get to take her picture :D. She is really good in
projecting her image and that needs a lot of attention when you’re cosplaying. 😀 Ms. Mayden Kae Ong’s
costume is from the Hatsune Miku Goth Version
Mr. Francis Formanes, the cool and playful guy during the shoot with blank expressions ( hahaha!
that’s how I describe him 😀 ). He cosplayed Inugami Wolf.
Ms. Nana Aoi, she’s the one I get to talk before the shoot and told me the things I should do before the
shoot. Her red dress and curled hair are so pretty same as her outgoing attitude that makes
me love her more! 😀
Ms. Claudshin Matsuki cosplayed as April from Coyote Ragtime Show. She’s one of the last cosplayers I
was able to take pictures.
Mr. Jayson Palileo has one of the characters that reeks of mysteriousness and the character was well
More solo and group pictures 😀 :

Many thanks and hoping for more Photo Shoots to attend to*
