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.
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:
Anyways, it was amazing, and I can not wait for the next shoot :)
