Personal Quote: "It's all in the reflexes baby..."
So I converted my apartment into a photography studio and had my first photoshoot this weekend with two excellent models; and We spent roughly 10 hours on our feet shooting and I am giggling like a school girl at the results. I feel like I finally crossed over the line from hobbyist to professional. I'll be posting photos from the weekend shoot over the next few days. These photos were just 'practice' for the real deal coming up next weekend when my studio setup is complete. I didn't have all my lights yet. HURRY UP AMAZON.COM! I need my stuffs!
COSPLAY BAN LIST:
o Naruto (Don't cry! Ninjas shouldn't be photographed anyway! RIGHT!?)
o Bleach (@_@ I am a human! NOT A DOG! Why is EVERYTHING in this series BLACK AND WHITE!?)
o Deathnote (Shinigami, yes! Dude in a white sweat shirt and blue jeans, NO!)
o Homestuck (...Grey... Why is EVERYTHING grey!?)
o D.Greyman (This suffers from Bleach BLACK & WHITE syndrome!)

o *HETALIA* (@_@ Sorry guys and gals but this sucker has worn out it's welcome at my studio. I am taking a break from Hetalia based stuff. Unless it is a mind blowingly awesome alternate version please DO NOT ask. I will kill myself with a spoon and make you WATCH! If this is your sort of thing I WON'T let you watch! Suffer!)
o Crap Yanked out of your closet or bought at Walmart(insert other clothing store here).
o CRAP period. @_@ Make sure you put your best effort into your cosplay. Represent! Don't end up as fodder for Haters!

It is time to rotate out the Cosplayer Spotlight and this time the lamp is setting on the lovely and talented who I have worked with for a few years now. Besides being breathtakingly beautiful, she is *THE* Sailor Moon of America. She is hands down, the best Sailor Moon cosplayer I've worked with in my ten years of doing cosplay photography. Click on her little avatar above and head on over to her page to check out her other work and go check her VBLOG on YouTube, especially because I am featured as a guest on the latest one (shameless plugging for the win!). Also, run over to Otakuhigh and check out her question/answer interview from me to learn even more about this wonderful cosplayer! Without further adieu, some samples of her work! ENJOY!
