Just taking a break from C.Viper for a bit, here are some more shots from my Mutated Alex Wesker shoot that I did with @alucard_photography last year.
A lot of the time in cosplay there’s this overwhelming focus on looking “pretty” at all times, which can be difficult to live up to especially when you’ve grown up lacking self-esteem and confidence. This cosplay was actually my first step towards trying to move past that, as although it may not look that different from regular Alex or be much when compared to other SFX work out there, in terms of my own personal forays into prop work, mustering up the confidence to show that much of my body and show facial expressions that were more than just “pretty”, it really was a huge achievement for me. Getting a chance to pose and behave in a way that was more “monstrous” was SO incredibly freeing for me, and although I probably have better shots, better costumes and better work to come, this shoot will always mean the most to me, especially because I got to spend it with the always wonderful @lost_in_nightmares_cosplay and talented @alucard_photography!
Thanks for reading my rant guys, hope that last shot won’t give you nightmares! 😂😝
