The Tale of the Raven III by yayacosplay The Tale of the Raven III by yayacosplay
***Warning, this is a large image***

Presenting "The Tale of the Raven" photoshoot, which was a conceptual collaboration with Kevin Stewart and Brian Boling.

Set in a beautiful park in downtown Orlando, we explored the story of a girl, dressed for a night out, who gets lost (in the woods so to speak) and encounters a raven. A magical raven. With it's song, the bird enchants the girl and consumes her. Possess her. Becomes her...

When I was putting together the outfit for this shoot, I tried to envision what a human raven would look like. The bird has a distinct strong look with silky jet black feathers and a sleek and beautiful silhouette.
My outfit is put together from parts of my Clover cosplay, vintage pieces and a corset from my favorite lingerie line, Agent Provocateur. I styled this look specifically to enhance the female form as much as possible, to exude sexuality and sensuality. I also wore bright blue contacts to make my eyes look more alien and bird-like.

I made three collages from the photos of the shoot, and this is the LAST of them. See the first two for a complete tale :)

Great set. I am so glad that I added you to my watch- it was defenitely worth it.

My favorite picture in this one is the bottom left, the black against the white and the bright daylight. It looks just very real.

This whole concept was excellent. I can't wait to see more from you!

Great concept.
Sometimes one single photo can't tell a complete idea about a character.
I hope to see more collaborations like this serie.
Congratulations for Kevin, Brian and you.

The tease for this series didn't do it justice, and that was a great teaser shot. Amazing series, and I think the outfit is amazing. I know a friend who would love that skirt style, going to have show them a link to here :D

I love the idea of presenting a photoshoot as a story collage as you've done here, and I would love to see similar things from you in the future, but with less provocative outfits =)

You know, I think all three of these would look great in black and white too! That first image had a great noir feel to it. Although I do like how it contrasted the "dull world" with the "new form". Nicely done!
