Cosplay Makes Me Happy BTS

Concept for shoot was partnered with Anthony Tran. Photography and video by Anthony Tran

 I am so excited to share Foam Armor Club's first big lifestyle shoot, behind the scenes. So much creativity and collaboration went into this, and I think the end result was absolutely magical. 

I designed this shirt while having a particularly difficult month, and it felt like the only thing keeping me from drowning was cosplay.

First off, it was so much fun working with my friend, the incredibly talented Anthony Tran (aka @aaanthonytran). You can see all his amazing work here!

And my boyfriend Jeff (aka @danglebob) did an amazing job getting these behind the scene shots :)

For the first time in Foam Armor Club history, I wanted to treat this new design release as I would treat any of my cosplay shoots. I wanted to incorporate a custom cosplay idea with the shirt, and I wanted it to be light, and magical, and, well, HAPPY.

So I started with a sketch, then did some research, cleaned it up, and added colors:

You can see that the staff turned into a lantern and the florals on the skirt just weren't working out (not for a lack of trying though). However, a lot of the concept stayed true to the original :)

Once everything was ready, it was time to shoot! We did a dusk to twilight shoot and video, and it came out so magical! Exactly what I had envisioned, and Anthony did an amazing job of bringing that to life!

Here are some of my favorite BTS from that night:
