Fisherman's Horizon by etaru Fisherman's Horizon by etaru
Had a photo just like this in mind when I listened to that song from my FFVII playlist! Martin totally delivered, and many thanks to all the photogs and lighting helpers who put up with my cranky self since I was already wearing this several hours too long and was in pain/hungry.
I'm not sure if I'm happier with the colors, the way I designed everything to stay in place and yet have mobility, or the fact I've never looked this physically good in my life <3

Guardian Force Siren from Final Fantasy VIII
Made and modeled by :iconetaru:
Photography by Martin Wong
Lighting assistants: :icondust-da: & :iconhikaru-jan:

It's pretty well impossible for women to have six pack abs unless they're competitive body builders. Which I'm not.

Wow, all those colours. Also, how the hell did you keep the feathers covering your breasts on? they look like a swift breeze would blow them right off.

Thank you! That was the idea, to make them appear wispy and light but well tailored. They stayed on with one sided stick bra cups, clear shoulder straps, and an invisible wire between the feathers.

Wow. This is so awesome!
The colors and the lighting are great and, if I may say, you have a wonderful body. :)
I don't know how you made this cosplay and how long you worked on it, but I think it has taken a lot of your time and patience. Admirable. :D
Great cosplayer and great photographer. Love it!
