That definitely is pretty cool, you should try more background edits and stuff for sure. If you want to edit light colored backgrounds out like that, btw, you can always try making the outer area a seperate layer from the inner area, and using a show-only-darker-color type blend effect. I know some more tricks to trim out that outline bit and so on so I'll give you a yell about it elsewhere we can chat clearly.
I muttered 'light as a board, stiff as a feather' for 2 days straight and now I've ascended, ;aughing at olympus and zeus is crying

Thank you, I’d appreciate that a lot! For these specifically I was perfectly ok with them looking painfully-obviously-edited since I’m just experimenting right now but I would definitely be interested in learning techniques so I can do more kinds of things at a higher quality in the future.

I believe I may have mentioned that I've decided to have way more fun editing my photos as of recent. :p

(This is my most recent cosplay, Cavendish from One Piece!)

If by "several liberties" you mean "exactly what this cosplay called for", then yes. :)

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

Did another mini-photoshoot of one of my cosplays, because I am very proud of the construction of my Luke fon Fabre cosplay:

More in spoilers because big.

The back, including the appliqué:

Couple more, showing off the inner lining of the coat tails, and the gloves I made:

I'm super impressed by your work here. How anyone could manipulate fabric to end up with what you've got is completely beyond me.

I'm wearing Gilderoy for Halloween tomorrow and I made something to slap on the front of a book as a prop but I accidentally made a better piece of art than my original cosplay

je suis back on my ********, y'all. i did an impromptu photoshoot on my floor because i got some new merch in and i felt like it.

i was rather limited in poses because i was lying on my back against this backdrop and holding both a lamp and a phone at arms' length. but i had fun and got to do sparkly makeup again so that is all that matters
