Junji Ito's Lovesick Dead: Intersection Pretty-Boy by silverharmony Junji Ito's Lovesick Dead: Intersection Pretty-Boy by silverharmony
Lovesick Dead cosplay (死びとの恋わずらい).

Harmony/myself as The Intersection Pretty-Boy
~fengsong as Schoolgirl Victim

Thank you ~pireze for the beautiful photography. Edit by ~fengsong and myself.


Lol after cosplaying Tomie a few months ago this is quite a change of appearance! XD Such an easy, quick, casual shoot. It was fun to do (except for the melty white makeup of death), as anything related to horror always is. :heart:

The B-Grade Horror feel to it is deliberate - after all, a lot of Japanese horror films and stories tend to exude that kind of atmosphere. (What more can you say about a story with a guy whose eyes are blanked out? Haha, it's such classic Japanese horror). For those of you who haven't heard of crossroads divination, Tsujiura is an ancient Japanese fortune-telling ritual that takes place in intersections and has a legend of producing creepy results - more info on it here!

Very special thanks to #strawtography for also helping out and being 2nd photographer on the shoot, and ~fengsong for so willingly becoming my victim.

No no, I wrote about the manga's story in the deviation description. It's kind of a supernatural manga, sort of ghosty but not really. It's also by Junji Ito! Best horror manga author/artist ever. You should check out his work if you like horror.
