DAMN! I was there! Why i never met you?! Your Cosplay is awesome! I am impressed! The camera is the same. (Ninon xD) Where du you get the textiles for the waistcoat? This story about "Asami must be someone special" is a realy awesome view of things. My Asami ist someone special for me. Really special. But my feelings are unrequited. But we're REAL good friends. It's enough for me. ^^
How you made the waistcoat? Which textiles? How did you sew it?

Wir können auch in Deutsch schreiben, wenn du magst, aber ich antworte dir mal in Englisch ^^

Well, to be honest, I didn't saw another Viewfinder cosplayer, even if I knew there should be 3 more u.u But it was lots of fun ^^ Yes, I wanted a Nikon all the time, and Ninon, yes, I knew it was a Nikon, so it helped me with my decisions. Akihito has 3 Cameras (4 if he kept the digicam from Asami) A Nikon (I also know which number ^^ but it is not a professional camera, just one of the D-Series), then I guess a Pentax from his dad, the small one when he worked as a waiter, and the one from Asami (if he kept it)
For the waistcoat, I found a waistcoat in ebay, but it was with longsleeves and I cut them and put black fabric in it I also added a hood ^^ it is also black.
I don't know if it is awesome, but I want someone for my Asami who is really close to me, that we can talk about everything and have also little arguments. I don't want someone who tells me what I have to do. Since I am a Seme myself, it would be a little difficult. But it would be nice if the person tries to and we have a little fight ^^'
And I also didn't started the cosplay to find one Asami for me. I am an independent person, and if Asami finds me he has to proof that he can handle me and my temper haha ^^
Do you also cosplay Viewfinder? I am curious ^^

*squee!* Do you have an Asami? I love this series! This is the first cosplay I've seen for it and it looks great! God, my mind is racing with excitement and joy and complete fangirlism! I thought I had my inner fangirl under control. The things you do to me!

Since I play also In Character Akihito I don't want one now. Later maybe, but the Asami for me must be also a special person. A Feilong for example found me, and I am very happy about it. I am the kind of person who is against the thinking, that Akihito is only an interesting character together with Asami. Sadly most Viewfinder Cosplayer think that way. u.u
But I am also happy, that you like the cosplay. There will be more photos the next time (because I made tons of photos) and we are planning a photoshooting together with other Viewfinder characters, too. :3 I also uploadet one more picture here, you can check out my profile if you want ^^

Definitely. You can't show those kinds of deep character connections without having someone you're close to yourself. I'm happy you at least have a Feilong to have fun with; cosplay is always more fun when you have friends to share a fandom with. I'm excited to see more of your photos.

and even if I had no one. I love the character. Its fine to have other characters around me but even If I am alone, no one can break the fun of a cosplay :D
thanks for your support ^^

Well said! Plus, you have the added bonus of him being a photographer, so if you want to get pictures and don't have someone to take them, you can grab a mirror and the camera won't be out of place. It's genius!
ZodiacWay Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
well, I can turn the screen of my camera around, so I don't need a mirror to see me. It is called live view, but like all photographers I prefer the Viewfinder to take my photos ^^
