GOOD, NOT JUST THE SOUNDTRACK
Welcome to my Nier Automata cosplay gallery, and Nier is one of those games that is grossly underrated. I started with the first Nier, and that beautiful soundtrack and setting haunted me till today… but somehow, the game itself did not pick up much popularity.
So finally, Nier Automata is kind of the one that did justice for the Nier Series – A combination of good story, characters and soundtrack. Check it out if you have not.

For ye who hath not played the game
9S is programmed with an emotional but kind personality. He is shown to be polite and very formal with 2B, as he calls her ma’am (as she is his superior). During the setting menu tutorial, 2B has a chance to tell him that “there is something calming” about his voice. 9S will often voice his thoughts and feelings, particularly complaints about his job (such as being ordered around too much or finding the job tiring) to which 2B will quickly dismiss

How it’s done
We were up on a huge empty carpark for this shoot… and somebody thankfully left some wooden pallets to be used as props. As for the lighting setup, we went for something very dramatic – A three point lighting that is lop-sided, plus casting some shadows and flare with a bare strobe. The rest is pure Photoshop magic.
