I will be live steaming tonight at 7pm CST working on more photos of Bunny Ayumi as Alielle from El-Hazzard and might even make it to a new set staring Vette Velocity. Come join me for an evening of photos, music and general insanity!

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!)

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!
Being a Cosplay photographer, I not only enjoy taking pictures but enjoy seeing what other photographers have brought to the table. Below is an ever growing sampling of some of the best cosplay photos I have found on Deviant Art. Enjoy!
