Tokyo Cosplay Photography: Matsuoka Rin from Free!

Recently, I had a lot of fun shooting Christina's cosplay of Matsuoka Rin from the anime Free!, for a cosplay event! It was my first time to attend an event like this in Tokyo, and it was pretty exciting to see the various cosplayers both at the indoor studios and outside on the streets. I really enjoyed working with Christina to shoot these images, and can't wait to do more!

I asked Christina what it is that makes this character special for her:
"He is driven by his passion for his dream (to become an Olympic swimmer). But in his journey towards that, he has also had to go through his own number of obstacles, and you can really see how his character has developed through all of that!"

Be sure to check out Christina's other work on her Tumblr blog, Twitter, and Facebook!
