I am veteran a cosplayer that has been been sewing and improving my skills for over 10+ years now and I'm always adding new techniques to my repertoire. While I take my work and any my creations seriously, cosplay is one of my passions, one where I get to create and problem solve. I wouldn't still be doing it if it wasn't so much fun from start to finish.
Here is one of the places where I host the photographs of my cosplays for sale. These images represent a great deal of love and work both for the creation of the costume photographed, to the painstaking efforts that go into pre-production on a photo shoot, to the actual shoot which is a collaboration between the photographer(Shocktress) and I, to the post-processing on the photos.
With my professional background being in Film/TV production and my intimate knowledge of the characters/shows/games I'm cosplaying from I'm usually heavily involved in this entire photoshoot process working closely with the photographer(Shocktress) on all things that need to be planned, arranged or otherwise taken care of for pre-production. Often this includes: location scouting, obtaining permission to use the wonderful locations, preparing inspiration or even coming up with the entire look/feel of the shoot.
