NieR: Automata – How to photograph a frozen cosplayer

Cosplayer: Poisonne
Costume: Henchmen Props
Cosplay: 2B from Nier Automata by Square Enix
HX: Blackwater Cosplay, GillyKins and Jordan

I’m always more than happy to photograph for Henchmen Props especially when they are working on cool stuff for Square Enix.
The shoot start out with only an hour window to shoot as everything had to be packed and driven down to PAX that night. That time was then cut in half due to weather. Poisonne was a champ but at near freezing winds guesting at 100km/h It was only a mater of time before everyone froze.

On top of that the winds made it impossible to set up any kind of lighting. So locations needed to be selected that worked with available light quickly and then photographed quickly before everyone froze. Given all that I’m pretty happy with the results. I can’t wait to see what kind of video that henchmen produce from that day.



And that’s a wrap! Frozen but we’re still having fun. Till the next shoot
