Lisa Garland in a storm by straywind Lisa Garland in a storm by straywind
Ever since I Cosplayed Shattered Memories Lisa a few years ago, I've wanted to do a winter photoshoot of the costume. That hasn't really been possible since the costume isn't suited to winter and we haven't had much snow fall in the last couple of winters. I had a snow day on Friday thanks to a big winter storm that passed through Toronto and my friend Stillvisions offered to shoot with me. We took this shot in the early evening so the streets were still pretty full of snow as the plows hadn't been through.

I kind of rushed my injury makeup and I wish I had bought a new wig that was more red, but whatever. I'm retiring the costume now, anyway, since it's not particularly impressive. I just really wanted to do this shoot before I did. We also did a shoot of my Edonia Sherry costume. I can't wait to see the photos from the day. I froze my butt of shooting both costumes. I was only outside for a few minutes as Lisa. We ran outside and shot and then I ran back inside to get warm. I was outside in a wooded area as Sherry for maybe 30 minutes and I was a popsicle by the time we finished. I can't wait for spring! XD

This particular photo was taken by Stillvisions using his iPad. His camera shots will come later. I do think the effects he added give the shot a Silent Hill feel. :3

the graininess of the ipad adds to the SH touch. Good cosplay and photo :D

This photo turned out amazing!!! Stillvisions really did an amazing job! I still can't believe how awesome he can make photos with his iPad in such short of time! I'm glad you finally got pics of Lisa in the snow. I know you had mentioned wanting photos in the snow for this one for a long time. It for sure looks like a Shattered Memories pic!

Stillvisions likes to pull out the iPad whenever he's working on shoots now. It's kind of cool for an instant sense of how the shoot is going and then he plays around with effects to make interesting images.

Oh man, doing a shoot for Lisa has been on the back of my mind for years. So glad Stillvisions suggested this shoot. :D I'm glad I have a few more shots of the costume.

At least something good came out of this storm! You look great here! Looking forward to more Edonia Sherry! :icontwilightclapplz:

Sorry that it disappeared. I do hate when that happens! Thanks for the comment! I'm really happy that this shoot finally happened. This has been on my to-do list for the last 2 winters so it's about time I got around to it.

This shoot actually wasn't so bad because it was right outside of my friend's place. I had to call it quits to the Sherry shoot because my toes and fingers were numb even with my gloves and boots. XD I hope I can share those Sherry pics soon. :3

That's such a sweet comment. :3 I know this costume was pretty simple, but it was nice to Cosplay from Shattered Memories. It was a very original game in its style and that Silent Hill group was such a wonderful experience. I love Cosplaying with you guys. <3

Thanks so much! Stillvisions gave me great directions for the shoot. My mind pretty much went blank the second I stepped out into the freezing cold. XD I was getting pelted by snow too.

Definitely an awesome pic!! Great costume! Its always nice when you can take a pic out in the elements that fits the game! :D

Thanks! I totally agree. I always love to see when a Cosplayer battles the elements to get the perfect shot. I've wanted to do this shoot for years. I'm glad it finally happened. Too bad I froze in the process. XD

By the way, I hope you have a nice Katsucon! I know a lot of my Canadian friends are travelling to it. I would go too, but it's so expensive to fly and pay for the hotel's room rates. Maybe next year. Anyway, I hope you have fun! (^^)

Lol! Yea a price we pay for that epic shot!! Hope you were able to warm up quick!

Thank you for the well wishes for Katsu! :) I can't wait. I'm for sure it will be a lot of fun. It is going to be my first time there! Ya the hotel is quite expensive. I'm rooming with three of my friends and it still is over $100. It would be amazing if you can come next year!! I'm for sure going. We can do all those photo shoots we have been talking about! :D

Not impressive? You look great!!! I am so happy you got a snow shoot. I have been waiting for one myself but I'm too far south to ever get anything appreciable in terms of snow :<

Anyway, this really looks like it came from the game, you did a fantastic job :D!

Thank you! I appreciate it especially since you're the best Shattered Memories Lisa Cosplayer out there. :3

It's too bad you don't get much snow, but this storm was pretty terrible. I could only stay outside for minutes and the snow was up to my knees. I could do without the snow. XD

Omg stop it! You are amazing as her!!! And your pics are so perfect & atmospheric, you are perfection. Since you're so far north I bet it does get kind of intense! I don't envy the heavy snow for sure, it is scary!

You really have the character down pat, though, and all your props from Shattered Memories are out of this world. I appreciate the compliments!

I like mild winters with little to no snow. The big storm we had last week kind of blew me away. I'm ready for winter to be over. XD
