This particular shot was loosely based on this illustration
Kubo likes to draw them in themed outfits that they don't actually wear in the anime or manga, usually on plain white backgrounds and sometimes as if they're in midair. Our theme was traditional Japanese clothing mixed with Kubo's quirky fashion sense (I swear if you look at the artbook, sometimes it's like an apparel catalog - but that's part of why we love it). We made up the outfits based on our characters, except Ichigo's which was heavily based on an existing artbook illustration.
Our take isn't quite as dynamic as the illustration, but we learned quite a bit from this shoot and will use the knowledge in future attempts. We hope to do this sort of thing again, if only because it's great fun to jump around, and the outtakes are hilarious.
Okay, it does kind of look like Bleach Rock Musical meets High School Musical. [shudders]
