Interview with Ms. February.

Tom’s behind the scenes notes:

I took this shot of Haley outdoors at Sakura-Con 2011.   It doesn’t look like it, but this was taken in the middle of a large crowd of people. There were hundreds of people all around, but I chose the angle and lighting to make it so that none of that would be in the picture.  Two of Haley’s friends were assisting me with this, with one standing on each side of her holding flash units and umbrellas so we could get this nice light on her.  The idea was to make it look like the character is in a cage, but in reality this is a gazebo in a garden.  The bright lights make the background look relatively dark, almost like it could be night, but we actually took this picture in the early afternoon.  One of the things I really like about this — besides the amazing costume of course — is how different we made the scene look from what was really there.

  1. I thought this photo was taken at night, so I was very surprised to see the other full-length photo in the interview was all sunshine and green grass. This is a lovely, powerful photo, Tom.

    The legs on this cosplay (which can be seen in the interview) are amazing and it just occurs to me: how did she walk around in those? I guess I could ask her someday.
