Ponyo Underwater - The Wizard and the Sea Goddess by alita-b-angel Ponyo Underwater - The Wizard and the Sea Goddess by alita-b-angel
Ponyo Underwater - The Wizard and the Sea Goddess

from Ponyo on the Cliff By The Sea

Shot by the fantastically awesome :iconhoukiboshi:
whose collection of work you can also find at : #strawtography

Costumes made and worn by:

Fujimoto: :iconalita-b-angel:

Granmamare: :iconarlo-arleh:

The Shoot:

Ponyo shoot TAKE 2 from last time, as it was so cold last time, we thought we would give it another go in a warmed up pool. And this time at Arleh's house. We got some absolutely stunning shots that literally take my breath away when I look through them. Simply amazing work from :iconhoukiboshi: or Straw our fantastic photographer and ever resilient friend.

:iconhoukiboshi: still couldn't swim, but we gave her a cement block this time in the pool so she could hold herself down.
And also a proper camera case we hired out for mucho expensive-le for the day (totally worth it). All the pictures came out beautifully clear and wonderfully imagined as we got more freedom to move around.

Many thanks also to
:iconqueencattabby: and :icontreminate: for being our awesome helpers on the day, saving us from drowning again and holding us down in the water.

The Costume:

Officially ruined by this shoot but WHO CARES? Lots of pictures to come. Instead of a blue it's now a light green haha.

Lesson learned for underwater shoots: Unheated chlorine pool, will not damage your costume (assuming you chlorinated less than 5 days hence)
Heated salt + chlorine pool will, as the heat activates the fading in the fabric.

But I do love my coat with it's perfect stripe still, and ~arlo-arleh's costume with it's 2 layers of satin for extra flow it's just completely etheral underwater.

Though I can't count how many times we almost strangled ourselves with our hair lol.

How did the chlorinated water affect your wigs?

:iconalita-b-angel:

Not too bad, it's more the clothes that have an issue as chlorine will make the colour run, with enough hair spray, the wigs styling will stick together while underwater, but of course everything is a ratty mess when it comes out, takes a LOT of brushing to get it back.

I've always wondered...when you're underwater how do you get the wig to stay on your head?
Reply
:iconalita-b-angel:
alita-b-angel Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2012
A net wig cap and a whole box of bobby pins, then you do a heavy metal head roll to test before getting in the water because once it's wet, its done for.

No offense at all, but how do you stand to get your awesome cosplays that you worked so hard on soaking wet?

Nah, when we made this cosplay it was always with the intention to do an underwater photoshoot, so we knew we were going to get around 2 wears out of it tops. Sometimes you have to sacrifice to do something cool.

The amount of shots you must have had to take to get this just right! Its so wonderful. I must ask though, how did you get the wigs to stay put?
Reply
:iconalita-b-angel:
alita-b-angel Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2012
We took quite a lot of shots, but was more limited by the amount of air we could hold on our lungs without bursting more actually. I had braided my hair underneath this time, and used a whole box of bobby pins to pin that wig to my head.
