no cats were harmed in this shoot

Palico and Meowster

No cats were harmed during the shooting of this picture.
I took many shots with separate pieces of the armor on and with the same pose, so that I did not hurt my kitty (She is lifted with my bare skin and not the gauntlet) then put everything back together in post production.
In a sense, everything is genuine but the stress for Luna is minimum! ;)
