How to Clear A Casual Gesture

Don't take the branching patch

In order to clear A Casual Gesture, you need to head to the Northern part of the stage, so don't take the branching path whenever it appears.

Wait for Octillery to flinch

A Seviper will apporoach the Octillery. This will scare Octillery and cause it to flinch, so wait for that.

Throw an Illumina Orb at the Crystalbloom


As soon as the Octillery flinches, throw an Illumina Orb at the nearby Crystalbloom. After doing this, Octillery will shoot ink out to shoot the Seviper away.

Zoom in and wait for Octillery to scratch its head

After the Seviper leaves, Octillery will walk forward, and then scratch its head. Zoom in advance to get the photo at the right time (the burst function is useful if you have unlocked it). A photo of Octillery scratching its head will complete the request.
