There's a picture that came out well. Although I haven't actually seen the anime (I've been waiting for an authorized translation of the visual novel), the costume is a pretty good match to the reference picture. The summer haze gives effective soft lighting, and there is good contrast, either hue or brightness, with the backround.

Picture makes me think of Wales. Pretty cool place to take the picture, but I'd be even cooler if she had found a rocky footing. Plain green grass or flower field would do the job, too.

Beautiful scenery. The costume, sword, and the wig are nicely done too. I really like this pic. Smile

Great costume and the cosplayer actually looks like Saber. She can be my Servant*, anytime.

The best cosplay I've see so far here in ANN! The scenery is just lovely. Very Happy

I "Wow"'d aloud. A breathtaking picture. I wonder if she has other work around... The scenery reminds me of home. Very Happy

I suspect I'm going to become the creepy person identifying all the cosplayers eventually, but I'm one myself so I'm in the community and all....

Anyway, that's Amazon Mandy. Gorgeous costume!

Her body of work (no pun intended) is very impressive, one of the best Casca's I've ever seen.

Lighting could be abit more focused, but overall, good picture.

Very good, but if the photographer put her at the lower left corner instead of center it would be much better (and would be a great wallpaper too).

While perusing a different site, I came across another site I found pretty interesting. Having read the comments here, I think it's time to throw down:
LET'S GET READY TO RUMBLE.

When it comes to cosplay, I don't think there are any losers with a contest between the two. I thought it was the same girl, but alas, it was not. Regardless, I thought I'd show another contender in the arena.

I'm not a huge fan of the series, but I find the costumes impressively done.
