could you cosplay Ashe B'nargin Dalmasca, your hair style and your foundation in this shot are a near match, you also have the body for her composition as well. pretty please =)

yes! take a look at some ashe portraits, google ashe, you'll see. Her pink squirt outfit will be a real challenge, I have looked at alot of girls who cosplayed this character, and believe me when I tell you, your facial structure and expression is the closest I have seen to her character. Its not going to be easy, her outfits are pristine, lots of detail, but I believe you will pull off a beatiful ashe! besides, her shoes are awesome! totally worth it!

I did a search on deviant last year on ashe, and alot of the cosplay for her character came up. All the girls who tried are real pretty, but! they all fall short, either they're hair is not right, they're facial is different, or the body is the wrong type, and lastly the outfits. One girl didn't have ashes shoes, ruined it. For me Ashe is incrediably beautiful woman, only in my dreams you know. Then a few days ago I saw your cosplay and I was looking at your 2 tone yellow and red hair color, and your silhouette just slapped me in the face and I realized you could be a pretty ashe with that smile and those expressions, Ashe has those wry smiles, and drawn looks. Of course it won't be easy, it never is. Your a smart girl tho, if you put your mind to it, you'll knock it out of the ballpark! I want to see a picture when you do so I can smile and know I was right!

BTW Lauren, Facebook totally wrecks the pictures and the size, if you grab them from my profile on DA you'll get the high-resolution shot:

I adore sunsets, they are never EVER ugly. They are sometimes more beautiful than others, but never ever ugly. I have no idea what dawn looks like, that time of day is just non-existant for me.

That is a very nice photo a beautiful woman holding a Katana, what more could you want. Personally nothing.

Although I do hate power lines with a massive passion!!!!! They have ruined many of my photo's..

Lovely...
...was gonna comment on the sun before I realized the idea behind it...to which it looks awesome. And he did well in balancing the fore-light to counter the shadowing effect.

you guys are too kind >< I saw the two-tone in the sky and the sun was setting quick so we had to scramble for this one. Lots of awkward squatting positions for me to get the sun into position hahaha As warm as this looks, it was FREEZING!!

Um...not sure where you guys are, nor when this was shot, but considering it's February...I'm pretty sure it was cold! LOL
Nonetheless, you did very well in the angles and positioning.
...at first I didn't like how the sun was behind her; most images like that are bleh, where the sun is too much of a bright spot. However, when I full-viewed it, I realized what was going on...and was like "Now that's cool." So, kudos to you amigo :thumbsup:

While you certainly, as always, make one's heart skip a beat, I have to add to many of the accolades down below and tip my hat to Mr. Lynn's choice of timing in order to incorporate the sunset. The aura it gives the whole shot (you, the environment, the sky) is just stunning.

thanks :iconglenboy26:! I knew i wanted a sunset shot with Shura because the red/orange sky is soooo Shura! So when the sun started to get low in the golden hour, and I saw a 2-tone happening i was just trying to snap away as quickly as possible!
Thanks again for the comments, they mean a lot to me :)

Not a problem, sir. It really was a brilliant idea/moment captured. Your eye and Tora-Rin are two good things that go good together. Hat's off.
