Mad Max/Assassin’s Creed Mashup Cosplay

I’ve FINALLY finished editing the photos that Ed took of me at the Mad Max: Fury Road group shoot a couple of weeks ago in Honolulu. Of course, once again I didn’t make a specific character costume, but chose to make my own Assassin’s Creed mashup costume! As soon as I saw Mad Max: Fury Road in the theater, I went around to all the Goodwill locations I could get to around Oahu and bought up a ton of faux and real leather jackets, as well as a set of football pads, and a men’s large waffle weave shirt. A few weeks after that, i found the perfect motorcycle jacket at Goodwill for only $30. However, I didn’t start actually making the costume until a day and a half before the photo shoot…but this is what I ended up with! And yes, right before we started shooting, I literally rolled in the dirty and had someone smear some mud on me.  So far this has been one of my favorite cosplays because I could be as grungy and gross as I have been in this summer humidity we’ve been having, because it was accurate to the aesthetic of the film.

Enjoy the rest of the photos!

In The Footsteps Of My Father

Author:

This is an image post I’ve been wanting to do for a couple of months now, and Father’s Day is the perfect reason to finally get it done! This past April, my dad and I took Ed on his first family overnight trip into Haleakala Crater, which has been a family tradition since before I was born. Even though my dad retired from the National Park Service in 2009, he still spends a lot of his time up on Haleakala leading volunteer service trips, and this was the first one I had been able to make in a few years.

My dad’s a pretty awesome guy, and my brother and I have been super lucky to have him as our father. He’s always been a truly hard worker, and I surely would not be where I am today without his support. I inherited my adventurousness from him, as well as a love for nature and landscape photography, so I’m always happy to spend this kind of time with him.  Sometimes I get a little scolded for not keeping up while hiking, but this time I intentionally was hanging back to photograph my dad walking through the amazing mountain where he’s spent most of his life working to preserve and protect the land.

Please Note: We are off-trail for some of these images, but that is because we were doing an official volunteer weed-pulling service trip, and needed to check specific locations for the weed we were targeting. Never walk off-trail in Haleakala National Park unless you have explicit permission to do so – it can be extremely damaging to the environment.
