Floksy Locksy Cosplay


I’ve been a Neon Genesis Evangelion fan ever since high school. With summer just around the corner I thought it would be fun to do a swimsuit costume but at the same time I wanted it to be cannon with an anime. In the anime Rei Ayanami appears in a scene wearing a school swimsuit so I thought this would be perfect!

I’ve been friends with Elle for over 10 years now so shooting with her is like hanging out with a good friend more than anything, we laugh, joke around and she makes photo wizardy happen. That’s all there is to it!
