MOST RECENT

This is the last time I'll share this photo, but the first time I'm sharing the story behind it. I was at a photoshoot with @_novaine_ and she was helping me pick out poses. She showed me the second picture (swipe left) and asked, "Can you do this?" I laughed, "it's been a long time, I can't do that stuff like I used to." She then asked me to try and I did. This photo was the result.

Something I stand by is keeping positive people in my life. Sometimes my friends see things in me that my own doubt refuses to believe. Listening to my friends, acknowledging their encouragement, and trying my best not to disappoint them is incredibly important to me. And, to be quite honest, I was really feeling myself and my abilities after this photo. It pushed me to try that much harder to do more than just wear the costume. Manu thanks to all my awesome friends who tell me that I'm capable of great things [and cool photos]. Cosplay by @oxfordcommav. @ardawigs wig styled by @sayakatcosplay. Photo courtesy of @_novaine_.

I'm resharing my old favorites, because a) I can't edit any con photos right now and b) I want to show off more awesome photography from @_novaine_. Kim Kaphwan got me into martial arts and he was the first character I ever real tried efficient combos with. I've always loved his crazed devotion to justice. Fun Fact: On the Cyberfanatix forums I ran a fairly popular roleplay thread as Kim. I've still got all the "Declarations of Evil" I wrote.

Let it be known that @_novaine_ is one of the best cosplay photographers out there. I've been a fan of her work since I first met her at Oni Con, so I was ecstatic when I first worked with her at Anime Expo a few years back!

This particular photo of my Fatal Fury Special Kim is from A-Kon last year. I look forward to working with her again this year! Follow her and hit her up! She has excellent rates and is extremely professional!

"Let us vow to destroy evil, let us vow to its setting sun!" I was going to bring Kim to the cons this winter, but I think I'll save him for later. Justice lives forever in my heart, though!

Many thanks to @oxfordcommav for the costume, @sayakatcosplay for the @ardawigs, and @_novaine_ for the photo!

@dtjaaaam is some sort of wizard with his camera. Big ups to him for capturing this JUSTICE FUELED photo at New York Comic Con! Fatal Fury Special Kim for life! Cosplay by @oxfordcommav. @ardawigs Blue Steele Classic was styled by @sayakatcosplay.

Kim is back and ready for action! #cosplay by @oxfordcommav and the @ardawigs wig was styled by @sayakatcosplay! #NYCC #cosplay #KimKaphwan #FatalFury #KingOfFighters #KOF #SNK #AkuWaYurusan

I'm thinking about my line-ups for Friend Con, Anime Weekend Atlanta, and New York Comic Con. I've got so many options! I know I'll be wearing Kim to at least one event!

Of course I gotta shout out my boy, @harteattackcosplay AKA #1 Prompto AKA Duke of Croconanas AKA Prime Rib Maximus AKA Cosplay Senpai! I can't wait to hit Katsucon with him! We see you back there, @clumsy_mandii! Gotta hold down the cute animals! #AnimeCentral #ACen #cosplay #Prompto #FinalFantasyXV #SquareEnix #Croconana #SorbetJungle #KimKaphwan #FatalFury #SNK #AkuWaYurusan #JarvisFriends

Head on over and wish @sunny_bebop a happy birthday. This fine fellow is always packed with energy! It's great running into him during conventions! #AnimeCentral #ACen #cosplay #KimKaphwan #FatalFury #SNK #AkuWaYurusan #BruceLee #JarvisFriends

Looks like @taurencebell was right, Kim took that 'L.' That said, Kim never loses to evil so this doesn't count. #CognitiveDissonance. Shout out to @_dre.kosplay_ for being a fantastic human being! #AnimeCentral #ACen #cosplay #KimKaphwan #FatalFury #SNK #AkuWaYurusan #Hwoarang #Tekken #Namco #JarvisFriends

Let the battle begin! @_dre.kosplay_ and I met up at Anime Central before our big shoot. It was awesome posing with him! #AnimeCentral #ACen #cosplay #KimKaphwan #FatalFury #SNK #AkuWaYurusan #Hwoarang #Tekken #Namco #JarvisFriends

I finally had the honor of meeting @gym_cosplay during Anime Central. It's always a pleasure meeting cosplayers I look up to, and it's even better when they turn out to be swell (in this case swoll as well) people! Shout out to you, sir! #AnimeCentral #ACen #cosplay #KimKaphwan #FatalFury #SNK #AkuWaYurusan #Guile #StreetFighter #capcom #fitness #GoHomeAndBeAFamilyMan

My esteemed pal, @zencosplays, tagged me in a cosplay side-by-side showcase. Mine aren't as sexy as his, but here's what I got! Now I'm challenging @tx_dredd, @harteattackcosplay, @10thmuse, @stryfethewarrior, and @danabeth349. Coincidentally, both my choices are Korean... #cosplay #collage #CatJumin #JuminHan #mysticmessenger #Elizabeth3rdIsBestGirl #KimKaphwan #FatalFury #SNK #AkuWaYurusan

Hwoarang is not amused by Kim's lovable [insane?] optimism. Until next time, I suppose.

I wasn't sure which headshot I liked best, but you can't go wrong with a knifehand block. To see the rest, check out my gallery over on our Facebook page, The Legendary Duo. Link in my bio.

Rather than trading blows, let's be Tae Kwon Do bros! Hopefully I'll get to shoot with @_dre.kosplay_ again someday!

Two fighters face off in the forest! Fist or Fury--the outcome could be fatal!
