Ya know, I'm a big Kyo fan. Always been, and I've done a few stupid things myself. I did cut a can of coke in half and stuffed it with flammable stuff and lit it on fire for a cosplay shot (went a little bad). But this...
That's just insane! The flames on Iori look fake (I'm sure its hard to create blue/purple tinted flames) but the flames on the 'orochinagi' the Kyo cosplayer is doing just looks... real O_o

I'm guessing it's real fire and not some CG work... probably fancy pyrotechnics and flame-retardant clothing. (I mean, isn't it a little convenient that they're right next to the ocean? Just in case something goes horribly wrong?)
I bet that if you had various tinted lights, you could pose while holding or suspending them and CG the flames into the photos. That's been my idea. Much less risky that way.
I once heard this one suggestion that you can cover your hand in lighter fluid and have some water readily available next to you. When you light your hand on fire, the lighter fluid should be what's burning, not your hand.
And yes, this is a crazy, suicidal suggestion and I DO NOT recommend that you try this.

That is real fire! This was on Slashdot.org months ago. Those guys were crazy enough to use real fire.
I recall somebody partially translated the captions, and in one of them, one guy thought he was going to die, because the flames got out of control.

I have a friend who lights her hand on fire all the time. You take a lighter in one hand and make a pretty much sealed fist with one open end with the other. Press the button on the lighter with it under the open ended fist (with the open end down) and hold it there for awhile. You'll feel the gas in your hand. Then light it and open your hand real quick. Ta-da! It really does work and since the butane is in gaseous form it doesn't burn your hand. But it's REALLY quick, like a flash, and you can barely see it during the day. But still cool if you had someone taking pictures and timed it right :D
