And here now is Jay Tablante‘s final image from the shoot, so may we request viewers to move your keyboards away from under your mouths. And before you just stop with just the image, I’d like to inform you that on the very bottom is the complete behind the scenes from the photoshoot.
Make-up: Paul Refol ● Styling: Hannah Kim ● Costume Production: Badj Genato
Production Design: Raffy Tesoro ● Art Director: Carl Urgino ● Digital Imaging: Ghani Madueno
Model: Nadine Howell ● Photographer: Jay Tablante
Jay took interest in a painting I had done years ago, and based the final costume from that. And when he told me about his plans, I absoltely had to watch the shoot. And her choice of who was to play the character was Rhian Ramos’ Sister; Nadine. Jay had convinced her to model the character because of her resemblance, in certain angles, to Jennifer Garner. and to that I agree, but generrally she does portray a strong look. So you can just imagine my reaction upon seeing her in the suit— I really wish I had brought pencils.
I have to be honest though that I only got to finish this until after the shoot. If not for the shoot, I would’ve forgotten about this pending digital painting and so here it is the final image!
And just to thank Nadine for playing the character, I gave this sketch to her. It’s a study for something else in the works:
Taking pictures during the shoot made me feel like I was in a movie reboot of Elektra (and thereby realizing my slight frustration with the Elektra Movie). And if you were in my position you certainly wouldn’t miss a picture opportunity with her.
And with that I leave you with the complete behind the scenes of Jay Tablante’s Elektra Cosplay shoot (that’s a mouthful)
I dropped in on one of Jay Tablante’s cosplay shoot, this time featuring Marvel’s silk wearing assasin; Elektra Natchios. The model portraying her is Nadine Ramos Howell, who also happens to be the sister of GMA actress Rhian Ramos… This is a look behind the scenes
