It's been a couple of weeks since my last post, which means I've been busy. I've had a party for twins called a Kinar, where the babies are blessed, a man sings (with a beautiful voice) and then the babies' foot and arm are covered in henna and then a silk red glove. Just after I did a couples' shoot with my first cousin, then the following week their wedding. At the wedding caught up with lots of family, and met many second cousins for the first time. Before the wedding I met up with first and second cousins from Australia that are here for the wedding, and I haven't met any of them before, so that was really nice. I shot with Sidika's, my pregnant friend, which happened at a children's play area. But the real star of the show, was meeting up with Tajfu Cosplay and doing a couple of creative shoots. Tajfu had two friends helping with the shoot too, and we spent a long day in doors and out. I picked them from Nicosia and waited for them by the border, as they were travelling from the greek side. I met Tajfu at the Cyprus Geek Fest briefly and we hatched a plan. She's a great girl from Russia but living in Limassol, and she makes all her own costumes, as well as being a fashion graduate. All her links are in the albums linked below.
These First shots are from the Pokemon Trainer set.

Red shadows are hard to create. This shot above was done in complete darkness and using 3 speed lights. Tajfu had to spark a lighter so I could focus! Tajfu CosplayPhotos by Sin Bozkurt© Photos by Sin Bozkurt©
Then onto family portraits

My stylish second cousin, is it any wonder she has a fashion degree.
