they are crazy expensive haha! i used apoxie sculpt due to it being a bit stronger and waterproof along with an air dry 20+ hour working time (became really handy when making my axe) great for props because you can always work on one part then leave it and come back a few hours later to fix it and not worry about having to be perfect right away.
The cosplay looks good. Compositionally, however, the photo is lacking. There is very little contrast between colors and the subject (you) is framed very oddly. Also the fact that I can see the remote release takes away from the fiction of it. Also your body language doesn't really fit the character or look realistic. You look like you are trying to pose for a picture but without looking at the camera and that gives off an awkwardness that really doesn't belong in a shot like this. I do think you nailed the costume pretty well though.
1) the remote was in my back pocket even though it might seem as if its in my hand. If you look close it is just my fingers curled up. 2) the body wasn't posed i was actually exhausted from running back and to the camera (moving it and junk...also it was a 50mm lens so it had to be pretty far back to get all of that in the frame.) 3) the framing was hard seeing as i had no way of seeing what it would end up like until after. a bunch of trail and error. I also had to re-crop the photo due tot he background having building in the back. also the shot was mid grip of the bow and i actually cut my back up pretty badly so i was in pretty bad pain during this so i am amazing you find it "staged" haha
I've been watching the progress of this character on your facebook pretty cool to see it all come together in such a neat location The only suggestion I would give is with so many earth tones to darken the background a little so your not getting quite so lost in it
