Maria Renard by Adella Maria Renard by Adella
Maria Renard stops her adventure to take in her surroundings with...SERIOUS FAAAAAAAAAAAACE. Serious face will kill enemies on sight!

Hee. This was a really fun photoshoot that we did. Castlevania at a real castle! It was my dream come true. The funniest thing about it was that this castle was closed (it closed at 6) but we couldn't read the sign so we had no idea that it closed at 6 when we left there earlier in the day so I could go change. When we got back though the gates were closed and here I was in this big ridiculous costume with a big gate in front of me.

But hell... I was Maria Renard. Did a gate keep her out of Castlevania? HELL NO. So we HOPPED that bloody gate and did our photoshoot guerilla photography style!

Costume: Made by me
Model: ME
Photographer: Kyle Johnsen

You did a fantastic job not only doing the costume, but modeling her as well. You do make a really good Maria Renard.

You're the model and the creator of the costume? What are you going to tell me next?
Senselessness!
Nobody should be this beautiful and talented - Unfair.

You are fantastic personifying Maria. I hope that your costume should not have made you feel uncomfortable while you were wearing it.

It's one thing to cosplay as a character; it's another to actually infiltrate a castle like her. This goes above and beyond.

Also, Maria's sass capacity has been met and exceeded, here! Nice~
She's kinda like: "Don't give me none of your lip, I'll toss my woodland friends at you."

You did NOT really jump a gate did you!?

Ah, what one does for a fabulous shoot. And a wonderful background for this awesome costume it is. I am in love with that sash!

I don't know this character at all, but everything looks really great. Well . . . the socks are not very fancy in comparison to the fine fabrics, which throws me off a bit, but still very nice ^^;!

Omg! You just made my day. This sounds like something I would only TALK about doing. However, I must say, if I had that awesome costume and was representing a headstrong character like she sounds to be, I think I may just have done what you did too :giggle:.

:clap:. I know if she's not proud I am!

Yes, of course! Finally watched that old documentary on cosplay from 2003 on your sight. I thought it was funny the director refers to you as a goddess. Too bad you have to sell off your costumes too. Wish I could afford one, especially Alucard.

Ever played FFIV or FFVI, I think you could pull off Celes, Rosa, Terra, or Rydia very well and since you're a blonde now, you can do 3 of the 4 easily. Ever played any of the Disgaea's or its spin-offs? Takehito Harada has many awesome cosplay opportunities. My avatar is one of them. Look forward either way to what you do =D

I've always wanted to try cosplaying Celes, Rosa, and Terra. Although i think Rydia has been done VERY well by a multitude of girls ^^!!! I also wanted to cosplay as Rozalin.

actually, i have to say that you have a really special talent in cosplaying. you give a really interesting "realism" if i can say it like that, in the character you cosplaying. you know how to take the right pose for every cosplay. who knows, that might give you great profits for the future;)

It must have been hard to make that costume details. There is a nice color contrast between your slender body and the shiny green plants of the scenary.
