So, here's my loving look:
Nico wanted me to take photos of him in this costume. He's writing a novel that takes place during the French and Indian war and wanted to act out and get a feel for his characters. I love his method, especially when I get to play, too.
When we looked over the shots, we found that we had different favorites. He liked the poses where he hid behind the woodpile and loaded his musket the most. He doesn't like this one because his very modern shorts are too prominent. I reminded him that our motives are different. While he wants authentic character portrayal, I want to show how magical it is to see a boy's imagination take form and flight.
