Kuroshitsuji: The Irony by aruki Kuroshitsuji: The Irony by aruki
...of it all - the lone dark figure believed to send souls to their rightful place walked up the grand staircase made by wretched, corrupt noblemen; he was bathed in the merciless sun, flanked by pure cherubims, with one thing running in his mind -- 'Who shall I see off next?'

Er, so okay, I fail in description again. OTL Forgive me; my brain cells don't seem to want to cooperate with me, gah. Anyway, here's the shot I've been waiting for! Hahaha~ I did post Kuya Doms' shot over my LJ and I kinda said there that I like the concept of the shot since it spells "IRONIC" in my face. Gah--I love how the photogs come up with something like this. If we weren't pressed with time, I'm positive everything would have gone a lot more grand. >D Haha, but still, I hope you guys like this shot as much as I do (despite being quite a fail in this one, haha).

Ciel Phantomhive - Kim
Sebastian Michaelis - ~renaissanceWITCH
Grell Sutcliff - ~lizeri
Madam Red - ~enchantingnocturne
Elizabeth Middleford - ~rFanatic
Undertaker - ~aruki
Bard - Jam
Finnian - ~Ghie-chan

the guy who cosplayed Undertaker, did he really have pierced ears or did he just put metal things on them?

If you'd notice on the description area, I'm the one who cosplayed UT (the rest of the cast's dA are listed there, too). :) And no, those are not earrings; the part that you see there is the rather fail scar that I made. :lol: Hope that clears everything up. :)

Y'know. I believe you'll fit nicely on being the best local Undertaker cosplayer. Heck, your cosplay of him is competitive enough for international level :XD:

btw, what a fabulous venue :)
aruki Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2009
Y--you think so? OMGsh, I'm... flattered and honored! Thank you!! XD Hahaha, but of course there are still those who are waaaaaay cooler than me. I'm just.. happy that people loved the character as much as I do. >3 I'll make upgrades so I can at least say with much confidence that I appreciate Undertaker. :D

Oh, the venue had been chosen by ~enchantingnocturne and we loved it to bits. Everything just fell into place, hee~

The photo is so vivid! :heart:

Though because of strong light, the one you're holding is almost unnoticeable >..<

You stood out, too because of the color of your costume against the bright elements such as the angels and blue sky hehehe.
aruki Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2009
Yesh; and vividness is :heart:. XD

I noticed that too.. it's like I'm holding a ball of light instead of a skull, haha! The staircase was right under this.. window panel and it was about 11 in the morning, I think. So I guess that's why it looks too bright. I would have darkened the whole image, but.. I dunno, maybe it'll lose some of the feel or something... D: (ah, gah, I made no sense!)

Hahaha, full of irony, y/y? >D The concept was just awesome. :XD:

Less levels for brightness maybe, hmm but it might lose the vividness :XD:

Awesome indeed :D
aruki Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2009
yeah, that's what I'm kinda bothered about.. hahaha.

Thank you!! :D
