Kingdom Hearts- Riku A Storm is Coming by VandorWolf Kingdom Hearts- Riku A Storm is Coming by VandorWolf
The fourth Kingdom Hearts costume I did while in Hawaii: Organization Riku. I had done this costume a few years ago, but this is the first time getting photos in it. The stormy weather that day kept reminding me of the part in Kingdom Hearts I where Destiny Islands was invaded by Heartless just before it was destroyed and that scene makes me think of Riku giving into the Darkness for the first time. So, naturally, I wanted Riku photos lol
Apologies if there is noise in the black clothing. I suck at photoshop so I didn't really know how to fix it ^^; I should really take a class on that program or something lol

A short video of what the weather was like during the photoshoot:

So I'm trying to figure out words to say to express how in love I am with all of the photos you got in Hawaii. You've really brought the world of Kingdom Hearts to life for me and I am just BLOWN AWAY. I don't know how you do it.
This photo of your Riku is so intense! Well done~

I have never seen you cosplay Roku before, but you portray him amazingly! <3 What I like about your cosplays is that when you dress up, you almost become the character you are cosplaying- sometimes I can't even recognise you XD I am like "Is that Nova?? D:" Lol! As I thought, you are one of the most talented cosplayers I know! Congratulations! ^0^

:blush: Thank you so much! That's not the first time I've heard someone say that :3 Most of the members of FDP used to call me the "Cosplay Chameleon" back when we first started out. I guess it was because I would adapt the character's mannerisms without even realizing it. Good to see I can still do it lol :heart:

Haha yeah. It wasn't very easy to get photos since the wind kept blowing the costumes and wigs around ^^; But it was sort of funny and my friend and I had lots of fun.

I'm still here. In Kaua'i. Unfortunately, I'm only here for a family vacation so I don't see myself returning anytime this year.

Kaua'i is a beautiful island. I don't live there but I hope you enjoy your vacation. :D It'd be a trip to see you at one of our Anime cons someday.

This is BEYOND AWESOME! CONGRATS! By the way, about what you said in the description about the weather reminding you of the Heartless storm from KH1. Was that a reference to my earlier comment on your "Kingdom Hearts- Sora Carefree Days" pic? Or did the inspiration just come to you?
