Sometimes family life feels a little like surviving the apocalypse – and with the genre so popular right now – we decided to go dystopian with our family photoshoot!
It had to be something big…Dan is going away for two years and we wanted to do something epic! So we sourced and customised clothes, made weaponry and set out to Pembrey Country Park. The old, hidden munitions tunnels were perfect!
Cait, Dan and Bekah looked the part, with dystopian designs and post apocalyptic accessories!
Roxy accompanied us, ready to chase off attackers…
And I showed off my kick ass scar…
We made it out of the bunker and scared off the enemy…
And we were ready for anything…
It was cold, very cold – but also epic, very epic!
All photos were taken with Bekah’s Nokia Lumia 1020 via tripod, and we had lots of fun falling over on that grassy hill, so that may be why we don’t look so post apocalyptic serious!
Please don’t use our photos without crediting and linking to us: The Last Krystallos and Arkhdrauth Cosplay. But feel free to Facebook, Tweet, G+ and Pinterest them from here!
Weapons were made from children’s toys spray-painted matt black, Vince’s bullet belt is literally made from a belt and gold spray-painted batteries held on with black electrical tape!
Hair and make-up all by Bekah, and Bekah’s antlers come from the amazing Hysteria Machine!
We put together our own outfits, lots of ripping, tearing, cheese grating and painting to distress.
So, we’ve done Steampunk, railway tracks, snow, and more…what next? Who knows?
What would you do for a family photoshoot?
You can find me, Lisa, on my website and Facebook, and Bekah at Arkhdrauth Cosplay on FB and her blog Adofaer and Arkhdrauth. We also run an Etsy shop Amaranth Alchemy…come and visit us and like us on Facebook to know about all our latest special offers!
What can I say… This should be titled The Ultimate Family Photoshoot. 🙂
Wow… i wish i was in your family. This looks like so much fun (and yes I see you smiling -battle ready as you are). 😀
We got some great blooper shots as Dan went flying as the camera clicked!
Of, course, those are just the “still” shots…. I’m waiting for the movie!
Hunger Games anyone? Anyone?
Alrighty then. You sure know how to have fun. Looks like a blast.
Coolest family ever!
I love those pictures! Looks like so much fun! Now I want to do a fun theme for our next family photo. Thanks for sharing!
Love it! Great photos that tell part of the story – all the preparation and planning must have been great too. Thanks for highlighting it on IASD, or I’d have missed this one 🙂
