Cohaku #11 – Behind the scenes

In April we had our Cover shoot for German Cohaku Vol. 11 in Schwetzingen with our gorgeous Covermodels Kazenary, Super_minaco, Alathaia, Tsukihana Cosplay Artist and the talented Chikara as photographer!
The 11th issue is all about asian culture and asian inspired cosplays! So what could be better than cute girls in traditional dresses and cherry blossoms 😉 We chose the quirky and colorful design of the anime series Love Live!

To give you an impression of our shooting, we made a little behind the scenes-video while the wonderful Morin was taking the Making-of photos. Have fun!

Cover-Shooting für die Cohaku #06

Often we are only able to see the results from a shooting, so we wanted to show you what was happening behind the scenes of the cover/photo gallery shooting for the German Cohaku #06.

The theme of issue #06 was “gaming”, so “Celex Cosplay” and “Alasio Hylian Cosplay” slipped into the roles of Link & Zelda from “The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess” while “B1NH Photogrpahy” took the shots. Our editor Sophia energetically delivered on-site support. Though it was bitterly cold, we really like the results and hope that so do you!

Take a look and enjoy the shots of the beautiful scenery of castle Drachenburg in Königswinter.

Interview mit “Man At Arms” auf der Katsucon 2015

Last weekend the Cohaku-Team visited Katuscon in Washington D.C.! (It was a blast!)

At KatsuCon we had the opportunity to do an interview with the awesome Matt Stagmer and Ilya Alekseyev of Baltimore Knife & Sword. They are probably best known for their equally awesome YouTube series Man at Arms: Reforged. We talked with them about their extraordinary jobs and cosplay.

Man at Arms: Reforged is one of the many YouTube series of the popular channel AWE me. The team of Baltimore Knife & Sword regularly recreates weapons and armor from famous TV-series, anime, movies and games as authentically as possible. Usually their fans get to decide which weapon or armor they will make next.

Their previous ironwork includes Ryuko Matoi’s Scissor Blade from Kill la Kill, Link’s Fierce Deity Sword as well as He-Man’s Sword from Masters of the Universe.
As you can see, the only boundaries are set by your imagination!

To find out more about how Matt and Ilya got to their extraordinary jobs and what they think about Cosplay make sure to check out our interview!
