Sword boys

I had the opportunity to shoot my friends Kyoko and Kelly at the San Francisco Japantown Anime Festival. They were cosplaying as characters from the Japanese browser game Touken Ranbu (刀剣乱舞) which are personifications of historical Japanese swords. I felt that shooting on black and white film would suit the characters well given their historical nature.

I ended up shooting three rolls of film and yet I wish I had more! Many thanks to Kyoko and Kelly!
