Dangan Ronpa Shoot

Within the first 2 weeks of the year, I had 2 cosplay shoots. My first shoot was actually of Hime from Zone 00 as I wanted to return the costume and wig to Esther as soon as possible. My next shoot was the group shoot of Dangan Ronpa, unfortunately, most not all of the team were ready so we made do with a few missing members.

We had our shoot at one of the few abandoned locations in Singapore, so it was really dirty and run down but perfect for the look that we were going for.

Recosplaying Sayaka as the group already had a Junko

Friends and helpers that day. I met some new people and got to catch up with old friends, though I didn't manage to take pictures with all the helpers that were present. They did and invaluable job helping to move things around and holding things up for pictures.
Some of the group memebers getting ready, others were exploring the place or getting shots taken. 

Amos and Daisy playing around 

Guys being guys and doing all kinds of random crazy things once again
The 2 things that were made the most fun of during the shooting process, Sakura's "boobs" and Oowada's "hair"

Baguette!!! Nomnomnomnom
In case you were wondering, our Sakura is biologically male and a bodybuilder, which explains his physique. 

Also explains his strength hahaha

There were 3 photographers with us that day so it resulted in a myriad of styles consisting of each photographer's interpretation of the characters. I haven't received the ones from Rescend yet as he shot on film but I did get these few:
By Fox Foo, we explored the location and found this "Tainted Memories" graffiti in a room. It was the perfect opportunity to explore Sayaka's desperation and change from a sweet young pop idol to becoming the first character to commit a murder in the entire series.
Also by Fox Foo, this was to show the protective relationship between Naegi and Sayaka

Group shot by Archie Kwa of Fringe & Film Photography

After all the group shots and solo shots had been done, Archie worked with us to recreate the famous deaths scenes in the game. It took considerable effort to get the posing done right and the "blood" got everywhere! We couldn't have done it without the massive load of help we got from the assistants that day.

I haven't gotten my picture of my death scene yet but here's one of Sakura. "Her" expression was captured perfectly:

Shall end this post with a super silly picture of me:

Literal "ovaries explosion" moment that I should think most fan girls have at the sight of their fictional crush
