Well I'm finally getting down to uploading the set photographed by the amazing: :iconunforgivenmind: AKA Darkain.

I had a lot of fun on this shoot. Darkain really knows how to make a person feel comfortable in front of a camera even though I had no idea what I was doing. Posing was rather difficult as it was my first time wearing Helena, and in all honesty, I hadn't played DoA in a few months and was only going on vague memory and making it up as I went along. I guess I tried to go from regal, to melancholy, to dangerous, an just a little bit sexy and failing hard there.

The costume itself was purchased from: Kukkii-san when I noticed she was selling it on cosplay.com. I was ecstatic to see such a beautiful costume and to be Helena, my favorite DoA character, no less I had to have it. The fit was perfect and the attention to detail was to die for. I thank her with all my heart for her dedication to the costume; it really made me feel like a lovely woman for once.

The wig was styled the night before wearing it and was about a two hour job with Got2B hair-freeze spray and a lot of teasing. I have to say it was probably one of the funnest wigs to work with, even after styling two more right before it: An Edgeworth and Kalvier Gavin for :iconshahnida:.

Speaking of Shahni, it was her wonderful makeup job that I sat down for about an hour for in the morning that really brought the costume together. I was a little hesitant before at first. I don't think I'd ever had so much makeup on in my life! Yet she was right when she told me it would look fabulous on camera. I really have to thank her a thousand times for helping me look like a regal lady, ready to kick ass and take names. <3

Post-processing was done by me, such as: Color correction, lightening and darkening shadows, upping highlights, matching my lip-color, and smoothing out seams in my tights.

You'll have to make due with the spam, I've got a lot to upload. Sorry in advance. :(

You doing your darnest in avoiding something............ thats why I'm confused I think?

You sort of got defensive when I said you were already a beautiful women.

Did I offend you? If I did I apologize hun!

Eh? I'm not avoiding anything o_o;

I just don't usually cosplay women, so it was something new and embarrassing for me? I don't have a whole lot of confidence, sorry :blushes:

Uncanny 6th sense I have about these sort of things... (jk :giggle: )
Is the one I commented on the cosplay that you are most proud of?

Nah don't worry about it :3 And well.. i think I'm more proud of my Anji and Axl Rose, but only because they are more fun to wear. Helena was very tough though I admit.

Oh, I just asked if you has styled the wig yourself, and all the information is right here. Silly me.

Wonderful pose! It is a very gorgeous costume, and it suits you well<3.
