Macross Frontier: Learn To Fly by behindinfinity Macross Frontier: Learn To Fly by behindinfinity

I had a simple shoot with Kat :iconmoonlightflight: just outside my house after we took pictures for our updated cosplay makeup tutorial (as requested by a lot of you guys :D). It was kind of funny shooting for the tutorial because we would first do only one side of our face, to show the difference made by eyeliner and stuff. This is one of the shots she got of me after I got the chance to even out my face, hahah.

This was fun, but I'm also looking forward to doing group cosplays and shoots with the whole big happy troop. We're working on something new for next month. I'm very excited about it!

And yeah, I happened to be listening to Foo Fighters while typing this out, hence the title. :lol: Hey, it fits!

:iconbehindinfinity: Jin *behindinfinity as Alto Saotome (Macross Frontier)
:iconmoonlightflight: :camera: photographed by Kat ~moonlightflight
:iconmiccostumes: costume sent by for me to review

Special thanks:
:iconaliceandrabbit: Alice & Rabbit's Shop for my contact lenses (even if they're not visible in this shot)
:iconlazyeight: Ian (and Andre) for lending me the Alto wig for this shoot
:iconhappy-hario: Marko for folding the plane correctly for me, hahah

After ages and ages of planning to do so, I was finally able to cosplay Alto. :D Ever since Macross Frontier came out, I've had people suggesting that I cosplay him. When I got the chance to watch the anime, I figured out why. "Alto-hime". Oh, you guys. =p (My hair even used to be like Alto's, only black.)

I did thoroughly enjoy the series, so I had been meaning to do some MF cosplay for a while, but it just kept getting overlapped by other plans. And then one day, asked me to do a review of one of their costumes. I then felt that it was about time to finally give Alto-hime a shot. :)

Read my costume review on my journal entry here:

Review: Alto Saotome uniform from MicCostumesHey, guys! Sorry I still haven't been able to update about Tux Team's recent cosplay adventures! As some of you might know, I really like to take my time to write those out. February turned out to be way busier than I expected! But hey, at least my gallery is getting updated a lot more this year! :D

Nowadays I like to make little blog posts and share snapshots on my Tumblr :pointr: If you like, you could follow me there too. :)

I've still got a lot of messages and emails to answer. (Especially yours, Rez!) Sorry to keep you all waiting! I really just find it difficult to write letters when I can't give my full

"If I’d ask you, who is Joseph Kony, you wouldn’t know. You should. And that’s why I’m going to tell you about him.
Joseph Kony considers himself as a good Christian.
He abducts kids, little girls go in prostitution, little boys become kid soldiers and are forced to do horrible things, things a kid isn’t supposed to do. Neither is an adult, no one is. He started the LRA, Lord’s Resistance Army. 20,000 kids have been kidnapped, this needs to stop. And that’s why we need to make Kony Famous. Let the world know about the horrible things he does, and the thousands of children and parents suffering.
So come together, at the April the 20th. That is the day, we will cover the night. People in all kind of cities, all over the world meet at sundown & cover the city with posters and stickers of Joseph Kony. To Make Kony Famous. If you want to help these kids and parents, cover the night at 4/20/2012.
Not clear enough? Please watch: [link]
Pleas share this and spread the word."

Jin, you are ridiculous. As soon as you don a costume, you BECOME the character :) Lots of cosplayers just act cute/pretty, but you have an amazing ability to slip into character. I admire that about you a lot :) x

Weird... I was listening to My Boyfriend is a Pilot when I found this in my inbox. Granted it's the Ling Mingmei version.
