Tom’s behind the scenes notes:
This is Sahara, cosplaying as Kagura from Gintama. I’ve worked with her a lot, and she has also assisted me on some of my photo shoots. She is very creative and full of great ideas. When she is modeling she will improvise all kinds of cool poses, and I just try to keep up by taking the photos. You can’t tell from this one photo, but during the session she did a huge variety of poses ranging from very serious to very funny. This was a hot sunny day and we found a nice shady spot under a tree for this shot.
