Utena Tenjou Cosplay – Revolutionary Girl Utena – Anime North Halloween Dance 2014 Photoshoot with Don Dolce
Hi Everyone! I figured I should start sharing more of my cosplay photos on my blog as well as on Facebook so here is a preview of a set of photos I just got back today and I am really excited to share with you guys =)
These photos were taken by my wonderful and talented friend Donald Dao at the AN Halloween dance this year which was a lot of fun, although I did more shopping around and hanging out than dancing.
For halloween every year Anime North holds a dance and Doujinshi Festival at the Japanese Cultural Centre in Toronto. I went with my friends and in this venue it has some very beautiful spots for cosplay shoots. I had made this cosplay in 2013 for Anime North. At that time I was new to cosplay photography and only got two shots done from ASphotography and those were the only pictures I had of that cosplay aside from selfies I took during that convention. So I’m very happy to have had the chance to wear this costume again and have another chance to shoot.
Utena is and always will be one of my favourite characters. She is strong and independent but still fragile feminine and graceful. She takes it upon herself to be the one who saves people than me saved. I admire her courage and I understand the pain and conflict she goes through struggling with herself through the series. I feel that I too wish to have my own prince to take care of me, to be a princess, but I have had to deal with things on my own and survive and conquer setbacks in my life by being my own Prince and being the one to help others and be strong for others.
Hopefully I will have the time and chance to do the Movie version of Utena, both the transformed one and the uniform short hair version. Please look forward to that!
