Our First Photoshoot as Blackros3, photographed by Aakin Patel, edited by Vanessa.

While we might not have the glitz of a high-end studio for recording or photos, we have a plethora of talented friends and our own bit of DIY to help us capture some incredible shots. For this low-tech photoshoot, we just used a friends backyard, and 20 minutes of time.
Some of the fun that happened behind the scenes included our friend Mike holding up a towel to block the light, and a lot of getting pricked by the tall deserted grasses. All in all, I think it turned out pretty sweet.

With some friends, and a little bit of ingenuity, anything is possible.

Anime Los Angeles, and other highlights

ALA cosplay catwalk blackrose blackros3

At Anime Los Angeles, you may have caught us at one of our 3 shows, for those that haven’t, we have a video.

We were honored to have such a presence at this year’s Anime Los Angeles.  Performing 3/4 days, we had (2) 1-hour sets, and a spot in the Cosplay catwalk as accompaniment.  Can’t wait to do it all over again.

Ribbons on Ribbons onribbons..


We’ve got ribbons.
It seems silly, I know, but these in the ALA scene are a big deal. If you’ve never visited Anime Los Angeles before, let us be the first to tell you that you WILL walk away with ribbons on your badge from both the event staff and even individual attendees.
Last year was our first year at this con, and we were floored way with this kind of community. To share in the ribbon love, we’ve created our own.
Be sure to stop by, and pick up one of your own during one of our 3 shows.

Finally Recorded

Phew.  It took us long enough.  We’ve played the Miraculous Ladybug theme in every show since our first show at Sabakon.  Yet somehow, our video capture failed in one way or another.  Whether it was battery shutdown, a late arrival, camera focus, audio issues, or in this case a thumb in the shot, we’ve always seemed to be cursed by this song.  Luckily this last bout is a little bit more usable.  Maybe our curse is lifting?

Personally, we’re excited for this new season to finally come around, so even with our small mishaps, we’re just proud that we captured something.
Check out our youtube video (Captured by John W.) and give us a like/subscribe for all the cool stuff to come.

Thank you,
And as always, be sure to let us know on Facebook what suggestions you have, and if you’ve been lucky enough to catch us on camera, we’d love to get a share!
