Here's a sort of preview of our Neon Genesis Evangelion cosplay photoshoot, our first project for the year.
and I oraganized this shoot, and gah, there were so many complications that I was scared it might not push through. Things seemed to have worked out in the end though, and I'm really glad they did. On a side note, congratulations to El and Chi for their first ever proper cosplays! (By that I mean it was their first time NOT crossplaying boys.) Great job, girls!
We won't lie... We're really quite nervous about this project considering how it's, well, Evangelion. Please don't dissolve and absorb our souls, Lilith.
This isn't a photomanip, by the way. We all just positioned ourselves that way around the field. Many thanks to our photographers who helped compose us.
Speaking of composition, I kind of like the fact that there are electric wires cutting across my neck since... well, you know what happens to Kaworu.

It broke our hearts when she said, "Mommy isn't going to see me cosplay anymore. She'll no longer be surprised to see that her little girl has turned into a boy again."Neon Genesis Evangelion photoshoot series Neon Genesis Evangelion First Child: Rei Ayanami Second Child: Asuka Langley Third Child: Shinji Ikari Fourth Child: Toji Suzuhara Fifth Child: Kaworu Nagisa Major Misato Katsuragi Rei III Asuka Strikes!
