Hi! I am a hobbist male cosplayer baesd in the Chicago area who loves photography📸, travel✈, and fashion👗! I also love shopping🛍 and obsessed with all things maid🎀! This website showcases my past works and adventures as well as my self-published photobooks centered around my favorite Japanese lolita brand milky ange!
I am a software engineer by day, and all of my cosplay works are self-funded, self-published, and self-motivated. I don't make money doing this. I do this because I really enjoy wearing cute outfits with pretty makeup to look my best!
Le Livre is an unofficial fanbook featuring my favorite Japanese lolita and maid dress brand, milky ange®.
Outfits from milky ange has always fascinated me because of their cute design, high quality construction, and extreme attention to details. Cosplaying with such outfits boosted my confidence and made participating in shoots a tremendous fun for me. When I was editing the photos from my shoots, it just came to me that I can put together a catalog to showcase the brand I love and spread the enjoyment!
Thus Le Livre was born! The books showcase milky ange maid outfits in various authentic settings to emphasize the outfits' quality and how they look authentic just like the settings they are photographed in.
The name of this catalog, "le livre" or "the book", comes from a series of catalogs with the same name issued by a luxury department store known for its top-quality merchandise. I chose this name hoping to present the catalog and its contents as "top quality" material.
