Japanese Photographer Stuns Twitter With a Water Dress

Japanese photographer KAPPA_RYU is known for adding cinematic flare to cosplay shoots with his use of wide lenses, dark lightning, and practical effects. He photographs everything from cosplay to nature to haunting portraits.





The foreboding style contrasts with the current trend of CGI-laden and brightly covered shoots that try to mimic anime. However, KAPPA_RYU’s meticulous work is currently blowing up because of a “water dress.”

It may look like CGI magic, but the “dress” is 100% water! According to KAPPA_RYU, it took over 100 attempts to capture these two photos.

Fans quickly heaped praise towards KAPPA_RYU’s camera skills on Twitter, but he was quick credit cosplayer Eri and assistant Souya for the shoot’s success. He said, “Our success is thanks to Eri’s beautiful looks and posing, and also Souya’s professional-grade water-splashing skills.” No doubt it took tons of patience from the trio as well!

Majored in Music @Duke, but realized that being a Jazz singer wasn't a real job. Now I spend my days watching anime and writing about the music industry. Glad to be in the new round of GB hires. Look forward to my coverage.
