introduction
ENJOYABLE OLD CONCEPT

Welcome to my Gate – Rory Mercury cosplay gallery. Gate is a series that did not catch my attention at first – Oh, another stereotypical alternate dimension series, as I first thought. But after a few episodes, Gate actually turns out to be rather enjoyable to watch.

As “common” as the idea of an alternate dimension may be, Gate still managed to pull off with an interesting enough story, and memorable characters. So if you have not started on Gate yet, give it a chance. You just might be surprised.

HOW IT’S DONE

I believe this is our third try on using the cans of environmental haze, and I thing we managed pulled it off pretty well this time (thankfully there was not much wind during the shoot). Apart from that, we used a crazy amount of lights to bring the haze and “feel” out.

Two lights at the front as usual – one main, and other as a fill. The rest are all red colored gels for the rim and background.

CHARACTER SYNOPSIS

Image source : Gate Wikia

Rory is mostly seen as having a thirst for battle. Her values are patterned from Emroy, taking pride when dealing with life and death. Just like the god she is serving, she sees murder not as a sin, neither good nor bad, but as a way to survive.
