"Perfection is not just about control.
It's also about letting go."

Another one of my favorite shots from our Youmacon photoshoot with Amanda! (Guh, I just love the black-and-white photography with this cosplay~) I also love that it's a direct look at all the beading on the tutu plate.

If you're curious, there's a clip in our Youmacon video of us working to get this shot during the photoshoot: [link] It starts at about 2:35! :D

Costume rundown is here: [link] It's a lot to read but hopefully it answers some of your questions! :heart:

I think this might be one of my favorite photos from this shoot. Just- the composition of it is so wonderful, and the black and white photography just works so perfectly with this.

Props to you and the photographer for this beautiful piece.

Well hello there muscles.

Tutu-ness (both the show and the costume) aside, I find this to be a celebration of the body.
