:iconayashige: - photo & edit. Further edit by ~Lina-Lau

This was one epic photoshoot. The longest for everyone involved [OTL I'm so sorry, everyone]. It started at 9 am and ended around 5 pm. It involved baby powder, flour, fireworks and graffitti and quite a lot of coordination among everybody. I wanted to yell 'Action!' so badly a few times :XD:

Oh, you can't tell, but while Lina looks mega-serious here, the guys were singing a Capella the Darth Vader theme and 'Stayin' Alive' by the Bee Gees. I don't know how she managed to keep a straight face...

Thanks everybody for your help, it wouldn't have been possible without you.

Saikang Army:

:iconr3active: - Saikang Army Supreme Commander and organizer/ lightstand/ fire technician [= lighting the fireworks with a lighter... But it didn't sound proffessional enough XD]
:iconruxiruxi: - keeping the order with an iron fist, luggage

Radu - I bet you regret bringing that bike with you now, huh? - was sent on multiple delivery tasks, from buying/ changing batteries, to buying more flour, to bringing a spare camera battery. And when he finally got to rest, I turned the camera 180 degress around and started screaming that his bike was in the frame, go take it away naaaaooo. And somehow I still live. Maybe he just didn't have the energy to beat me with the bike anymore... :D. Also, he worked on the graffitti.

Kira, Cristi, Rammy - graffitti/ voice commanded lightstands/ flour throwers/ wig throwers/ whatever else throwers and various other tedious tasks

Sari - lugging... luggage and moral support

I'll be uploading more in the following days, so stay tuned.

You're welcome~ I was wondering how do you get your wig/hair to do the flying in the wind magic? Is it effects or someone holds it or something until the last minute?  
It's amazing~

Yup, it's like that, a helper dropped the cosplayer's wig at the last second. Depending on the situation, you can achieve a somewhat similar effect if the cosplayer makes a pirouette.
