When planning this vacation, I was very careful to check for Life is Strange inspirations. I stayed in Garibaldi, OR and mapped my adventures out from there. Of course, it was only natural to drive to Arcadia Beach and cosplay as Chloe.
As this was my first time as Chloe, I made my usual error by referring to a picture/the mirror in applying the tattoo. Unfortunately, it was my only tattoo and I decided to just accept my error and continue on. I also brought my light stand/umbrellas for the flash and hoped that the winds wouldn’t take the kit away.
When I arrived at the beach, it was cloudy but only slightly windy so I began to set up. Once I began to take pictures, the sky opened up and made for a gorgeous backdrop. I took a few poses, one which I plan to post in the future. For being both the photographer and the subject, I couldn’t have asked for better results.
One thing I do want to note is that my journey opened up so many new sights and experiences for me. I would have never guessed almost two years ago that a game would have such an impact on my life. The locations that I mapped out and traveled to were so breath-taking and the experiences were so unique. I tried to imagine what it was like for the development team of Life is Strange when they were designing the game from these real locations. I’ve received so much from this game and I will forever be grateful.
