Litchi Hikari Club by kirawinter Litchi Hikari Club by kirawinter
Haha, craziest shoot that I took this year.

Few years ago Ive red Litchi manga, and after that was searching for cosplayers, but there are no people who like such a gloomy and crazy manga. So I almost forgot about it.

And now cosplayers of LHC have found me xDDD We took photos almost till morning. When I look on photos in my folder, I ve got a feeling that I watching screen caps from LHC tv show xDDDD

I am feeling bad for people who usually watch my photos, lately I took photos of not well-known or unpopular series (or newest), but I feel too tired of Vocaloid and all this typical cosplayers things... So, maybe you all dont know what are all this series are... I am sorry TAT

The lighting is very interesting. The places that the people are standing makes it look like the picture is alive and the head thing on the ground looks like it's sliding towards you. What I love is the negative space in the back ground because the light coming from the open door makes the shadow look like it doesn't end. The "men" (in case some cosplayers are female) holding the cups of wine on the right side is a little hard to see because of the shadow. Over all really good job Kira I love it can't wait for the next picture.
What do you think?

Litchi hikari club, is too often mistaken as a gore-nography manga. It does have really meaty topics and genres it tackles or pokes fun off. I mostly liked it because of how it pokes at hyper masculinity in shounen with the club dynamics and how horrifically naive the whole male cast was to varying degrees.

It's wonderful to see cosplays of Litchi Hikari <3 Great work!

It's a beautiful image and wonderful setup by the models, as a cosplayer I worry sometimes as well that after doing popular series, going back to something you love but that may be less well known could discourage watchers. But I think if the execution is right-on and you're proud of the result, you can truly inspire your fans to pick up a series based solely on liking your recreation from it!
Ну всеравно молодец еще раз :heart:

you're not the only one tired of Vocaloid >_>

please make more shoots like this one, it really shows your creativity! And also I think you gotta do what you like best and not what people might think is popular or liked by everyone.

I love the lighting, and the perspective really give it a awesome dynamic. My eyes goes like, "zooom" towards the center. I just wish the image are a bit bigger so I could see the rest of the cosplayers.

I think this is a great idea, to cosplay something else. Be different. There's loads of interesting manga that I think more exposure. We tend to focus on the so called "mainstream' anime that the only thing that it's become tiring and boresome. So don't fret about doing things that other people don't do. This cosplay are awesome and it'll give the manga a boost. ^^

I have read Litchi Hikari Club and this is just looks perfection. This captures the ceremony they had. The gloomy affect of the picture, the location and the cosplayers look terrific and accurate and they have Litchi there which was just a perfect touch which made this picture look like it came out straight from the manga. Terrific shot!

Take photos of what the things YOU enjoy. It`s more fun to get to know new things instead of seeing the usual stuff.

"[...]but there are no people who like such a gloomy and crazy manga." ... I heard gloomy and crazy... I've been looking for gloomy and crazy mangas for years! I need to find and read this! :la:

I think it's a good thing you also shoot photos of less known series. :meow: It helps others to discover new things :D And the shot is awesome by the way.. I LOVE the ritual feel, the costumes and setting :love:
froggyprince Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2012
oh my God this photo is amazingly wonderful! I read the manga quite sometime back, and you really captured the feel of it SO WELL.
Mew-Suika-Chi Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2012
You shouldn't feel bad about taking pictures of less known series. I was so excited when I saw this picture because I'm a big fan of Litchi Hikari Club. The picture is absolutely breath taking and it was amazing to see LHC cosplayers.

Thank you!!

As always, well done!
