I'm happy to present my friends who had come together to do this group cosplay! It feels surreal to me to have friends who happen to have faces who suit the characters they wanted, and appropriate height differences as well!

This is the biggest group we've attempted! There are actually a total of 15 of us with completed costumes (although not everyone was able to attend this photoshoot) and we have more friends who are going to join.

Unlike other series where the characters aren't in uniform and we could work on our costumes individually, for this one we had to get the same materials (it was sometimes hard to find a kind of fabric that would be enough for all 15 of us) and constantly meet and work together to make our uniforms consistent. In that time we had gotten frustrated (over the impracticality of Isayama's design), lost sleep, fused our fingers with cyanoacrylate, and panicked about getting everything done in time. But we also made each other laugh a lot, learned about each other, and acquired new skills together. I'm really proud of everyone! And I think that this experience gave us a better understanding of our characters, as well as ourselves. :)

The pictures in this journal post are going to get increasingly silly! So let's start!

Here's a normal composed group shot. There will be no more of this hereafter.

Relaxed and fun atmosphere during the shoot! The place is so beautiful it feels like a movie set, but my friends and I just happen to be hanging out in it. We were having a bit of a picnic at this point. We can't function without food, as always!

Obligatory "Jean is a horse" jokes even before poor Jean is finished dressing up!

Attack on Titan: I Hope We'll Always Be Together by behindinfinity
One of the first things we shot (properly) was the Shiganshina trio

An alternate portrait of the Shiganshina trio. I wonder what Eren said to merit that reaction?

Attack on Titan: Rise and Shine by behindinfinity
Another photo from this location is this group shot of heichou chasing the new recruits out of the barracks

Levi-heichou inspecting and interrogating the troops.
Can we take a moment to notice Annie's killer glare?
It's like she's saying, "Don't you DARE crack"

More badassery from Annie
Attack on Titan: You Taught Me How To Fight by behindinfinity

The new recruits partake in a little initiation and are forced to try working together to pull the officers' carriage.
Jean, don't laugh at everyone because you're used to horse duties.
Not to worry, Mikasa's got this.

The lighting kind of looks like something from a stage play, huh?

And so this happened
Shingeki no Miserables
The conflict of Javerwin and Jean Kirschtein Valjean
And the love story of Chrisette and Ymirius

I don't know, man. We just can't help these things.

All of the blondes giving a salute to MURICAAAAAAAAA
(Notice the patriotic hand making the flag wave majestically in the non-wind)

Another round of Jean-is-a-horse jokes!

Commander Erwin and Lance Corporal Levi
So dignified and in-character
1% of the time

99% of the time this is what they're like
Danchou making jokes and heichou unable to retain composure
All is right in the world

Commander Handsome
such dashing

Armin and Jean discussing some strategies

Armin and Jean discussing some strategies while about ot be abducted by aliens
Lighting is important, yo

Attack on Titan: Noir by behindinfinity
Lighting made this photo work really well
Erving is a wizard

Levi and Eren
This reminds me of something

That doesn't even make sense
One hell of a soldier

(Okay 170cm is not my actual height. But that's our actual height difference, it's gotta count for something)

A kindly titan took our picture

Warm and fuzzy trio shot

Small smile from Mikasa because Erennnnnnnnn

Jean bursts in to alert the guys that they're being summoned

Except that he accidentally broke into the female barracks while they were changing

Jean then gets a taste of Mikasa's arm strength

Attack on Eren by behindinfinity
Jean just can't catch a break

Don't push your luck with Mikasa

Jean puts the blame on Eren

hand motions
omg lewd

Nice comeback there Jeannie boy

Okay that dialogue wasn't what these shots were intended for and I just made it up
I'm a terrible person

Another photo comic we put together :pointr:…

Incredibly posed and cheesy fake candid shot to end the photoshoot!

The shoot made us work up an intense hunger! So we ordered a lot of pizzas!

Here's us coming up with more nonsense, even without the costumes

Want to know what we were doing?

We put up a video!

Shingeki no Budget :pointr:


:target: Kono bangumi wa...

We would also like to thank some shops that helped us a lot with our costumes! Hopefully they can make your cosplay lives a little easier as well, hahah!

:bulletred: Studio Boheme
We had our boots custom-made at Studio Boheme. Finding accurate boots was frustrating for us, so we decided to try having them made. Much to our delight, the people at Studio Boheme were actually familiar with Shingeki no Kyojin! They were awesome to work with, and our boots came out excellent! Check them out if you need your own SnK boots, any sort of custom leather things for cosplay, or even apparel for everyday life. I'll put up a detailed review of my SnK boots from them soon! (They take international orders, by the way!)

:bulletred: Den Den Style
Our jackets were made by our friends at Den Den Style! They have the most accurate SnK jackets in structure and color that we've seen anywhere so we had to have our jackets made by them! (Store is on hiatus for now but will be back in January!)


:target: Charity print sale

As I had written about a while back, my friends and I felt that maybe it was time to finally accept print requests as a means of being a fundraiser after the devastation of parts of our country from Typhoon Haiyan. We had been setting up these elaborate photoshoots recently just for fun and out of our love for the series we cosplay, but an opportunity has presented itself for us to turn them into something more meaningful.

And now our store is up! :star: :star:

Profits of our print sales will go to Typhoon Haiyan relief efforts by the Philippine Red Cross and rebuilding the affected areas by Architecture for Humanity.

NOTE! :note: Prints are for pre-order for now and will be shipped out next week because my friends and I will be in Sabah, Malaysia for HOBBYCON for several days!


:target: Thanks for reading!

Don't be afraid to leave comments because I really enjoy reading them! :D

I still have a bunch of shoots I have to share pictures from! Stay tuned!

I am able to update a lot more often on my Facebook page so please feel free to follow me there!

behindinfinity Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2013   General Artist
Hanji is androgynous so Chase just rolled with it and could be either! He wrote about it on his blog:…

Ah, no, sounds about right to me :) I'm 5'8" and for some reason people always think I should be shorter XD
