Mount Annan Botanic Gardens

27th April 2013

Dear Chibi,

Jacky and I spent Anazc day at the Australian Botanic Gardens at Mount Annan, located near Campbelltown. The weather was lovely, and the garden didn’t have a lot of people so it was really relaxing. It was a perfect photo opportunity so we explored the area in search of pretty locations. Some areas were home to vicious mossies..  my only regret is that we got bitten XD

Final Fantasy Cosplay Photo shoot

19th April 2013

Dear Chibi,

Seven years ago, Kaz and I had our first cosplay experience at Sydney Animania, dressing up as Tifa Lockhart and Rinoa Heartilly from the Final Fantasy series. Back then, the only non-convention photos we took were amateur shots of each other in our backyard. While it’s kinda cute and not too bad (yay for baby fat), we felt like the photos could look a lot better. Ever since Jacky purchased his DSLR, we discussed the possibility of dressing up once again and it got us all excited :D

Over the last few months, we did all sorts of preparation and research, with Jacky fine tuning his photography skills and us making enhancements to the costume.

After several delays due to the wet weather, we finally found a nice sunny Sunday! We spent about 2 hours getting ready with the hair and make-up. We started the shoot at 3pm and had 2 hours since the Gardens closed at 5pm. There really wasn’t a whole lot of time, but we fit in as much as we could. Jia also came along to help out with the shoot (or more like..to observe his model girlfriend ;D)

I really like how some of the shots came out. This one is my personal favourite:

Aren’t the feathers pretty?? *_* Jia, Kaz and I threw them into the air ^^”

Without further delay, here are the photos:

I spent several late nights revamping the cosplay site. Please have a visit and let me know what you think :D

Special thanks to Jacky for making this all happen <3 The entire experience though fun, was very exhausting XD

 

The 2 of us on Australia Day

27th January 2013

Dear Chibi,

Jacky and I spent Saturday strolling along the beaches of Nielsen Park. Since it was Australia Day, it was really packed but we eventually found some quiet areas where we played around with Jacky’s camera :) The forecast for the day was scattered showers with chance of thunderstorms from midday… but the day went by without a single raindrop ^^; There were even times I complained there was too much sun XD Here’s some photos from the day:
