Cosplay Vs Character 2: Maestro Delphine Eraclea from The Last Exile!
I love this crazy lady’s design. I think bad guys tend to get the best
designs, definitely why I do so many of them! This was made back when
nifty new craft supplies didn’t exist, so I had to carve all of the red
accent parts from foam! The hat is foam and cardboard!
I would like to do one more shoot in this before retiring it. This photo was taken by LJinto!! FaceBook Instagram
Gekidan EXILE durint the time Keita Machida was still with GENERATIONS
After a few of their members left
the troupe for other activities and join groups (Sandaime J SOUL BROTHERS,
GENERATIONS), Gekidan EXILE dropped
the two teams system based in the Hanagumi team and the Kazegumi team, and
merged the remaining members in one. In February of 2012, the group was formed
by Sho Aoyagi, Shintaro Akiyama, Kyousuke
Harukawa, Yousuke Isomura, Yuuta Ozawa, Nobuyki Suzuki and Keita
Machida, whom would come back after dropping from GENERATIONS.
Machida Keita re-joined the troupe after a long period innactive with GENERATIONS due to an injury
Then three new members would join
the group, Hayato Onodzuka, Shuhei Nogae and Masayasu Nagai. Hayato and Masayasu had been contestants at the VBA 2, while Shuhei had just came back
from Toronto (Canada), where he had spent the last 6 years trying to make it in
the music scene. Shuhei had a side career as an MC under the stage
name SWAY, with three indie singles
launched online: NOT VINTAGE (produced
by Shikro), HERO (produced by The 3
Systems) and Blue (produced by SUNNY
BOY for TINY VOICE PRODUCTION) and he had just launched an indie album, with
the label File Records, titled The “S”.

The plays of that period were (2012-2013):
Hounangumi Vs. Gekidan EXILE Atakku Nº1 – August 9th 2012
Kagemusha Dokuganryuu (The shadow of the eyes of a dragon) –October 2010
SADAKO –Tanjou hiwa- (SADAKO – the birth of a heartbreaking story-) – May 2013
Sayonara Saiko-kun – from May to June of 2013
Atakku Nº1 –
from August to September of 2013
In May of 2013, alleging personal
motives, Yousuke Isomura left the
group as well as LDH, in the middle of one of their plays and without giving
any satisfactory explanation, something that made believe he had some bad issues
with the group members or, perhaps, the company.
