I thought we would've been able to have this shoot up sooner...but because of it's awesome epicness, we got so many amazing shots and going through and editting them all has been an insanely hard task. But it's finally here! This shoot was taken after a con at the end of January, and has been in the planning for about 6 months, or something insane like that...it's also something very special to me and will be incredibly difficult to beat. We got to work with gorgeously amazing people, AND be in a circus for shooting the Noah's Ark Circus Arc...what's there not to like?! A wonderfully big shout out of love goes to Chrystal, who works at Circus Joseph Ashton, for being able to get us in and make this shoot work. Not only did we get to pose in the ring, but we also got to use the equipment there - throwing boards, tight ropes, death wheels, horses and carriages! Thank-you so SO much for being phenomenally awesome Chrystal! <33



Photographers Sab and Will reporting!

Will tries (and fails) at walking the tightrope. Unimpressed Doll is unimpressed.

DOLL PHOTOBOMB! (I'd been out the back cooling off under the fans because who woulda thought...walking a tightrope's really insanely HARD WORK.)

Thanks so much! I'm glad all of this insanity gets recognised XD It was an absolutely mind blowing experience and I'm glad we did the concept such justice. =3

OMG that is an AMAZING shoot!!!!!!!!!!! So incredible!!!!!!!! Am very impressed you managed to walk the tightrope, too! O_o

I think it *may* have helped to have my dancing background, but doing it in that big skirt with limited vision was definitely not giving me an advantage XD; I think I ended up only managing a step before falling off, but I could balance on it for a few seconds...but this is mainly why Aly's there to give me something to hold onto n__n; It was also incredibly hot sweaty work x__x;
born this way.

This is amazingly awesome :)Great job, I can't imagine how long it took to make those outfits, I wanna cosplay Joker but I need to make the costume O.O lol

Beautiful, amazing, impressive as hell (there's no way I could walk a tight-rope!!) You're all fantastic! <3
clamwings at 2010-02-09 03:39 (UTC) (Link)
Ah ha, I was a bit dubious about how I would do too! But with a bit of help, it wasn't too bad at all, and I really love how those shots came out too. <3

Definitely one of the best, if not the best, Kuroshitsuji photoshoots I've ever seen.

The Circus arc is my favorite, and you guys really brought the characters and atmosphere to life. Great job, and thanks for sharing!
neilcreek at 2010-02-08 04:29 (UTC) (Link)
Magnificent photos in a location befitting your always amazing costumes. I am *SO* jealous :)

What a beautiful and classy photoshoot.

Every detail is perfect, the horse, the ring circus, the tightrope, the stairs and umbrella, etc etc.

The expressions of all you guys are excellent. And you are a very beautiful and skilled Doll too. I am utterly amazed.

Congratulations to the photographers too, they did an amazing job with the angles for these photos.

A thousand bows and claps.

Aaw, I'm glad they get noticed! Not quite sure if everything's quite time accurate..but hey! CIRCUS ACCURATE! Next best thing XD

They really did, it was so great to work with them all and the conditions definitely weren't easy with low light and maniuplating angles, framing and cropping and all - lots of kudos because there wouldn't be any photos without them. XD

Woahh... that is one epic cosplay shoot. Were the cosplayers actual circus performers, or were they models?
clamwings at 2010-02-09 12:23 (UTC) (Link)
Ah, we're not circus performers by a long shot! Not at all! We're all just regular cosplayers with crazy ideas XD

Thank-you! There were just so so many amazing photos from this shoot it's so mind blowing, especially in the not-ideal photographing conditions.

Yes! Can't get much more perfect than an actual real circus!
