Lenneth, in a follow up to her Saya cosplay, also created a Diva one. Not to mention went for a second Saya photoshoot! She shares with us Riuvasians, some of her harrowing and interesting experiences during the shoots.
The Saya shoot was done at this chillingly haunted house, some Istana whatchacall it thing that is a staple in all local ghost stories. Apparently the poor girl knew nothing about it being haunted and was led there by her team of photographers eager to find a good and suitable location. Well, let’s applaud their bravery.
Lenneth said that she felt ill and nauseous the moment she entered and there were a few times when shrill female wailing and hysterical laughter could be hear out of nowhere. Ugh. I’m scared too. Anyway the backdrop was good, it had a desolate vibe suitable for berserker Saya.
She added, "Saya’s costume has a greater impact on those viewing it but yet Diva’s outfit looks more mature and by the
first look at her, you wouldn’t think she is the main antagonist." I beg to differ, Diva just looks pure wicked most of the time. But in anime, the one holding a katana is generally the good guy.
For Lenneth, Saya’s cosplay was more fun. "It was generally more fun to cosplay Saya since she has more action poses, whereas Diva mainly portrays either a child-like feel or an eerie expression. For this Saya shoot, i felt it was more easy for me to get into character because of the location. Diva, for this shoot, it was difficult to get into her playful mood as not only did it rain, I also had to worry about my white dress getting dirtied so I wasn’t in a very good mood then lol."
Diva is never in a good mood you I think you got it right on!
As for cost, she said, "For Saya, I spent about 100 only lol.diva.. 210 bucks haha."
According to my new-found knowledge of the cosplay scene, an average costume can cost up to or more than 400 dollars, no thanks to tailor fees, lavish use of expensive cloth and props. Lenneth saved money on the teddy prop by using one of her own, but….
"But I had to make a sacrifice. I decided to cut the right arm [of her teddy] so it can reveal the stuffing. It’s embarassing to say but I felt sorry for it and teared a little then. It was all to show the scene where Diva was tearing up toys."
What a pun, she teared when tearing up her bear. Anyway, a torn bear is still a bear! Btw have I mentioned that I have a love for Turtle Plushies?
Do look out for more cosplays by Lenneth, apparently she has a few upcoming projects of characters already heavily featured on this site…
