Photoshoot: Sumiko.Foto at Otakon

At Otakon 2015, I worked with Sumiko.Foto for the first time! I agreed to write a review in exchange for a free photoshoot (and a Free! photoshoot). My first photoshoot with them was on Friday, when I cosplayed Nagisa Hazuki from Free! I cosplay Nagisa to every con I go to, and he’s definitely one of my all-time favorite characters to be! The second shoot with them was on Saturday afternoon, when I cosplayed Kill la Kill with two friends. You can see my Otakon cosplay lineup here! It was a really busy con for me.

First, let’s talk about the Free! shoot!

I met up with Sumiko.Foto on Friday morning by the fountains outside Otakon. There was another cosplayer there, a Gou, and she took photos of both of us at the same time. We got lots of solo shots, and also some group shots. Sumiko.Foto handled it very well, and I didn’t mind sharing the time slot with another cosplayer since the photographer definitely split up the time evenly and everything ran smoothly. As for the end results, both cosplayers got amazing photos! All of the photos on this blog post were taken and edited by Sumiko.Foto ; I did not tamper with the files at all. I’m impressed by the results!

On Saturday afternoon, the Kill la Kill shoot took place! I cosplayed Mako, and my friends cosplayed Ryuko and Satsuki. Unfortunately, I ran late to the photoshoot because my hotel was far away from the con and it was difficult for me to commute back and forth. I had to change to Mako for this shoot, and on my way back to the con from the hotel, I got stuck in traffic. Luckily, things worked out since Ryuko and Satsuki got their solo photos as I was traveling. When I got there, we got to do the group shots!

I got less photos back from this shoot than from the Free! shoot, but I don’t mind since the photos still look great. It was also more difficult to get great photos from the second shoot since we were in direct sunlight most of the time, and the area on top of the fountains was crowded and busy.

It’s too bad there are random passerbys in some of these photos, but that couldn’t be avoided. Otakon was definitely one of the most crowded cons I’ve ever been to… There were so many people everywhere!

My friends agreed that this photoshoot was fun, so we were all happy with the experience. Thank you for shooting us, Sumiko.Foto!
