Looking for Cosplayers!

Journal Entry: Fri Feb 15, 2013, 7:43 AM




Sooo with Motherland Chronicles under way, I'm thinking I'll indulge myself and do all the things I haven't had a chance to in my career so far.

Anime/manga was one of the biggest reasons I became interested in art at all, so cosplay is something I've hoped to photograph for a long while now but never really had a chance.

So!! If you're a cosplayer and would like to shoot with me please read on :D

I'm mostly into 90's fantasy stuff and here's a full list of stuff I'd love to shoot in alphabetical order:

Alichino, Angel Sanctuary , Arslan Senki, Blade of the Immortal, Claymore, Doll, FF6-8, Gantz, Guilty Gear, Magna Carta, Monster Hunter, Nana, Noblesse, Trinity Blood, War of Genesis III, Weiss Kreuz, and pretty much any characters by Yoshitaka Amano, Range Murata, Clamp and Hyung Tae Kim. But I'm open to stuff that I haven't seen/played before as well!

If you're in the NY area or will be coming by, please drop me a note with your work!!

And feel free to send me recommendations if you know anyone awesome! Thank you :D :D :D


~ Questions for me? ~

If I were to make videos, what part of my work or photography in general would you like to hear me talk about?

Would be great if you can be as specific as possible! :D Many thanks to all who've sent in suggestions via Facebook and Twitter!

Sadly most of the cosplayers I know are in the west coast. There's a few here and there that are in the east but I forgot if they moved or not.

I would love an opportunity to work with you but I'm in Ottawa Canada.
Although, I should be in NY for NYCC in October. It would be a good opportunity to get many cosplayers together.

... When I read that list of anime and mangas I nearly cried. Let's be best friends forever k?

Also, you may not be the type of person to watch or read this manga but it seems like something just up your alley.

Well, it's not anime or manga, but I'm working on a cosplay of Tali'Zorah from Mass Effect and I might be able to go up to New York at some point if you'd be interested in doing a shoot of that if/when I finally finish it... xD

Can you talk about how you do your photography and how you made connections, im an aspiring photographer, im really hoping to go to uni for it!!
Oh, i chose you for my year 12 project on research a photographer, dont worry its not open to the public.
I wish i was a cosplayer, or even living in new york, becouse i wanna model for you.
But alas, i live in australia in the rural areas :(
Oh well, good luck!!

If you were to make a video I'd love to hear you talk about your lighting. How you choose they type/style of lighting, what you light, and what you don't light. Studio as well as natural lighting would be great.
