I can't explain why the asylum scene fascinated me so much XD
Anyway it was a challenge to find all the tutorials and materials and trying out for myself. I have no theatrical-makeup experience and it wasn't that easy to get related makeup items here as well. Just happen i bought some when I was in Taiwan so I have the spirit gum and liquid latex, and managed to find a better latex bald cap after checking out many halloween stores here.
The costume wasn't too difficult to make, though I spent some time to figure out the logic before I start. I love my new Janome sewing machine that can sew leather easily! I was trying my best to get a rough fabric which isn't too thin nor thick either, and the fabric shop aunty really helped alot suggesting as many options as she could think of XDDD
However I couldn't put on the bald makeup nor wear the costume alone, so i got the help of my good old friends to help me on the makeup and strapping XDDD I think Sakana should have some fun with the liquid latex though we encountered quite a lot of problems trying to make a seamless look. Well, we aren't professionals and we tried our best so I guess we still had some kind of self-achievement
Thank you so much for Jiaer & Wenjie for driving over to fetch me! (or else i have no idea how i can catch a cab like that lol) Data was awesome throwing in suggestions along the way in the shoot XD
William was nice to meet me for dinner and hear me out an hour on the game and artwork, watched videos and walk through potential shoot locations with me before the shoot. We only realise that day that there was a concert at the area so we had to improvise a little on some shots we intended.
Overal the shoot was really fun! I was really handicapped all strapped up though. hahaha.
