I always enjoy working with Nathan! He keeps a totaly relaxed and professional atmosphere when ever we work together. When he approached me about shooting my Yunalesca cosplay, he already had background knowlege of Final Fantasy X, which I knew meant that he was as excited about the cosplay as I was. Having a photographer who loves the series as much as you do makes all the difference, because you know they are as excited as you are to bring the character to life.

Floksy Locksy was utterly amazing as Yunalesca. Being a fan of the game, I love the attention to detail that was put on the cosplay; almost like she came out of the video game herself!

I always had in mind to capture Yunalesca as an elegant, almost ethereal being brimming with confidence. Planning the location was challenging but we found a perfect place for it.

The cold, windy, and rainy winter weather didn’t deter her a bit. She kept a positive attitude throughout the challenging conditions, and was entirely fantastic to work with, as she’s always been!

When I set out to make Yunalesca I knew that this cosplay would be one of my toughest challenges, but if I could pull it off it would be one of my greatest triumphs. Though the costume itself seems to have very little to it, there are so many components that come together as a whole to make the outfit what it is. I found challenges at every turn, which meant I was pushed to the limits of my creativity. If one way did not work I had to find an alternative, and there was no guarantee that the new way would work either. But once a piece had been finished I was filled with immense pride. And slowly piece by piece the entire outfit came together.

I was nervous about wearing the outfit as it is very revealing, but the overwhelmingly positive response I received from the cosplay community boosted my confidence. When Nathan asked me to do a photoshoot it shook off the last of my nerves. He had a way of making me feel that I was allowed to be confident and proud of this cosplay, and I knew that the confidence would shine through in his photos.

I’m already looking forward to working together again.
