The gist of the shoot goes a little something like this:
Ardella and Miss Snape are cosplaying as characters from the popular online series, Critical Role. This series is based around Dungeons and Dragons, which I have no experience playing at all. Hopefully that will change.
Miss Snape is dressed as Vex while Ardella is cosplaying as a gender-bent Vax. (Gender-bending characters means making a character a different sex to the canon fandom. For example, Vax is usually a male but Ardella decided to make a female version for fun! It’s been well received by the Critters [Critical Role fans]).
Miss Snape demonstrates how to correctly put on leather armour. Hoon is seen “helping." Miss Snape and Ardella posing majestically while I try to climb trees for more “dynamic” angles.
The height difference makes me giggle every time.
The things we do for those killer shots! You can kind of see Miss Snape traversing a perilous looking tree IN HEELS!
Ardella assists by taking selfies…And so do I!
