Blake Belladonna Cosplay with Don Dolce Photography – RWBY – Unplugged Expo
Here is another shoot set I got recently by my good friend Don Dolce Photography. These were taken at “Unplugged Expo A weekend of Awesome 3” in Toronto in September. I was so busy with school at the time because my semesters go straight through summer and are 4 months long so my final performances were basically all on the week before. Me being terrible at memorizing scripts and such had to put all my effort and 100% of my time that I had out of school and work into practicing and memorizing. So basically I had 4 days (outside of work shifts) to make this cosplay.
Considering that I had no clue whatsoever how I would even tackle Blake’s weapon “Gambol Shroud” I was beyond STRESSED. I looked up a bunch of tutorials and with lots of blood sweat and tears managed to pull it together by Thursday afternoon and start painting it. I ended up putting the details on the boots as well. That left Friday after my work shift to run over to fabric land to pick up one or two missing items for my cosplay (I had purchased all my fabric for blake earlier in the year) and to start and finish all the sewing. I got home and mentally prepared myself for self-sweatshop-torture and started my costume at 7pm-ish, scared out of my mind that I wouldn’t be able to finish it even if i stayed up all night. I ended up finishing at 9am as happy as a clam got an hour of sleep, got up at 10 got the costume on, packed and rushed over to the con for Noon. I ended up doing my makeup on the Subway ride there. HAHA. Truly a miracle.
Hanging out with my RBWY Group was truly fun! Ruby was Digirin Cosplay, Weiss was Joyride and Yang was Bamzy Cosplay. I will put up pictures of our group shots that were shot my Alex O Niell Photography soon.
Back to this shoot, We shot this at a beautiful location called Osgoode Hall which is right next to Toronto City Hall. And with the help of my friend Kronicle Cosplay being Don’s assistant with the lighting they took these beautiful breathtaking pictures. I am still in awe with how amazing these pictures are and how much I was happy about how this cosplay turned out despite literally rushing through it overnight.
