Neon Genesis Evangelion by behindinfinity Neon Genesis Evangelion by behindinfinity
Here's a sort of preview of our Neon Genesis Evangelion cosplay photoshoot, our first project for the year. :)

El ~rosiael 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. :D 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. :lol:

:snowflake: editing by me - for that sort of post-apocalyptic feel, though I kept listening to "Beautiful World" by Utada Hikaru :lol:

We dedicate this photoshoot to the late mother of our friend. She passed away last Christmas Eve. She loved seeing her daughter cosplay, and even crossplay. 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."

The word Evangelion is derived from an Anglicized version of the Greek word for Gospel, and Good News. So the true meaning of this series' title is, in a certain way, "The New Century Bible/Gospel". Quite fitting I think, when you factor in the vaguely philosophical and religious tones the series uses in tandem with the bizarre Lovecraftian SciFi.

Why were you nervous, was it because you take Evangelion very seriously or are you just scared of the fans?

Wow, awesome. The place is so beautiful, the colors are really nice. I like the sort of ruins, it makes a great atmosphere. And the way some characters are looking up, as is they were waiting for the Angels (or just for the third impact, as a fate witch would come from above, from a sort of God). Lovely interpretation of Evangelion. :3

BTW I hope you don't mind, but I was under the impression that the Philippines doesn't have a fall. Did you just change the colors of the leaves and grass or is it all natural?
