ZYLORDS - A Visual Kei Video and Photo Shoot (First Batch of Photos)

This is a not-so-recent photo shoot by our cosplay/otaku group (well, we were once part of ZANEC but all of us dropped out of it almost at the same time).

This was a Visual Kei shoot, a style common among Japanese bands which constitute members wearing extravagant and or distinctive costumes, makeup and hairstyles.

Our version of Visual Kei inclined more on gothic-styled costumes, makeup and hairstyles. Black dominated most of our getups, with chains and studded accessories to complete the look. We had to design our costumes from scratch, since this is not a cosplay shoot - when our costumes were imitated from a character's entire physical appearance.

This was, by far, the hardest and most flamboyant shoot that I have participated. Most of our effort went into wearing and transforming ourselves into one of the most popular style or fashion in Japan. This was also our first try on video shooting. It was tiring but fun to do.

Anyway, enough talk. Here is the first batch of photos released by our shoot leader. More photos and the final set will be released very soon so watch out for it!
