Attack on Titan: Humanity's Strongest by behindinfinity Attack on Titan: Humanity's Strongest by behindinfinity
Humanity's strongest ...shorty? Hahah! I am not tall myself, and am just about the right height for Levi so I figured I'd embrace my lack of stature and make him the third character from Shingeki no Kyojin / Attack on Titan that I'd cosplay for a shoot. (Previous ones being Eren and Mikasa)

As with a lot of people, Levi is my favorite character in the series. More than the things that make him traditionally "cool", I like his interesting quirks; but more importantly — because a lot of his words have stuck with me. I often think about these lines:

"No matter what kind of wisdom dictates you the option you should pick, no one will be able to tell if it's right or wrong until you arrive to some sort of outcome, resulting from your choice.

The only thing we're allowed to do is to believe we won't regret the choice we made."



Although I look rather disgruntled, I really enjoyed this shoot with my friends. We experimented with moodier lighting which was appropriate for the series, and were very satisfied with the outcome.

This was also an exercise in cosplay makeup for me. I had tried to do Levi makeup a couple of times before but based it more on the Levi ball-jointed doll; this time I used the anime as reference. I've been practicing drawing on a fake eyelid crease for the illusion of heavier eyes. It's a challenge but it really does change the way I look. And then I used some brown powder to shade around my eyes for a more sullen expression. Eyebrows are important too. I strained my forehead trying to get them in the right shape to mimic Levi's for this photo. :lol:

This (and the rest of the photoshoot series) are beautiful! If I could offer one comment/suggestion, though, it would be to make everything less clean-looking. Since the characters live pretty active and dangerous lives during rough times, having clothes that look incredibly clean, crisp, and new seems a bit out of place. I think that once the costumes (at least the outermost layers) get a bit more wear and tear on them, they'll make your cosplays look even more incredible and realistic ;)

Thanks so much! Ahaha, that's true! We made it a point not to iron our clothes but I guess the lighting still makes them look pretty crisp at times! We haven't had the heart to put real tears on our uniforms just yet, but maybe for a future shoot. I'll probably just keep myself looking neater when cosplaying Levi, as he is known for being a clean-freak :lol:

I know, tears aren't fun when you've put so much time and effort into making the costumes! I was just thinking about you guys wearing them for a while (or throwing them through the washer a bunch of times) to soften the fabric for a bit, then maybe making them a bit dirtier (though not for Levi)! Again, excellent job to you and the rest of your group! I love seeing what you come up with!

Oh gosh, scrolling through the comments and seeing that a lot of people thought the same thing as me. When I saw the thumbnail in my deviant box I thought you had gotten into drawing or something (but, then I recognized your face, it's quite distinguishable) So, as you're probably seen a lot in the previous comments, great job with the lighting, on both this picture and the one you shot of your friend (Erwin). The makeup is great too, idek how you made it look really quite mixed in styles, realistic but still maintaining a sense of Levi's original features (not too... "overbearing"? a lot of Levi cosplayers use heavy makeup, haha) Definitely a great fake double eyelid, I never would have been able to do that.
I think the picture has that kind of style that rich people put in their mansions of their ancestors and such, if you know what I mean :' D Great piece overall. Please continue to grace us with your amazing cosplays.
