Facepalm by Antiquity-Dreams Facepalm by Antiquity-Dreams
So *supernovadobe has this great love of Durarara and I find Izaya's trolling hilarious so I agreed to do do this with her. It was actually pretty fun shooting at LA Live in spite of the security constantly saying things like "You can't lay on the ground" and "You can't have a reflector, it's too professional" etc etc. lol.

The photographer ~SNTP was super ninja and boss with his lighting assistant ~ninjagal6 working it hard in cute Loli gear XD! They were both awesome.

After a while we pulled out the blood and bruise make up and people started looking really concerned. I decided to not pull out the pocket knife until we were out of the middle of LA live. Just because security seemed a bit... touchy already, it wouldn't due to further aggravate them XD!

Also! We decided that we should base most of our poses on existing fan art in order to honor the artists of the fandom. I'll throw up related photos so you can see what we were paying tribute to as they come :D!

We were mimicking this fanart: [link] but I can't seem to find the artist on DA or... anywhere. If you know them or know where to find them, please let me know? I'd love to give them more credit than this T__T!

Lol it's an omage to the original art piece, not necessarily an identical copy. Sooo if we messed it up a little bit, it's not that big of a deal :)

You are posting at 6:19 in the fucking morning xDDDD

You're horrible.

But I am finally done working downstairs... and I am half contemplating just... packing everything up and going to the post office within two hours.

and not sleeping...or something like that...

...BUT THEN I THINK ABOUT SLEEPING WITH YOU

and everything gets thrown to the wind xD
