Q: How did you get into cosplay photography?
Neil: Kind of by accident. I first attended Manifest in its second year, in 2001. I took along my brand new video camera, not knowing really what to expect but being dimly aware that there might be people dressed up. Two things were quickly obvious to me: cosplay and cosplayers were awesome, and I'd need a better camera. It wasn't till 2004 that I could shoot cosplay with my first DSLR that I became completely hooked.
Q: How have cosplay meets and conventions changed since 2001?
Neil: They have changed so much! Mostly to get much much bigger and much more involved. I commented to Hayden at MelCosPho 13 that there were more people there than at the first Manifest. Back then, t
Start to 2013: Cons/Cosplay/Other updatesWhat up guys. Finally sunk into me that it's 2013: brand new year, full of stuff to do. I have no doubt that it's gonna fly by before I know it so I wanted to update with some stuff that's been going on:Start to 2013: Cons/Cosplay/Other updates11 months ago in Personal More Like This
1. Kicked off the year with MelCosPho 13. Not gonna lie, it was probably one of the biggest gatherings of cosplayers in Melbourne since probably the last convention (Armageddon). Was insane as to how many people showed up, and for a social chameleon such as myself it was overwhelming not recognizing over 80% of the people there.
I used the meet to debut my first cosplay of the year: Afro Samurai! (Mugshot can be seen here -----> http://shinyspikes.deviantart.com/#/d5reqe8 ) It was actually supposed to be my first ever cosplay back at Armageddon 2011 and I was going to make it out of my old Taekwondo uniform (thank god I didn't omg). I had a lot of fun making a cosplay from scratch, thank you to :icondarcywilliam: for giving me the sword to modify and helping me weather the headband and

Print Shop OpenHello everyone!Print Shop Open5 months ago in Personal More Like This
I have a few announcements I want to make and changes I wanted to bring up. I am currently NO longer selling products online. (prints only!)
Why?- I keep selling out of things at conventions and I need to maintain my inventory. For 2014 I want to attend more events with my products to sell. Look at what conventions I will be attending to buy through my shop! ( I am a one person team! )
What will I be selling online?
I will still be offering prints and I just added a few prints and opened my new print shop! I will slowly be adding more and more prints as time passes. Eventually I will ever order bigger ones but this is what I have for now.
Do I take commissions?
Yes and no. Sometimes I take commissions but mostly just prop commissions. I do not make full costumes. Mainly because people can not come it for a fitting ect. (I want it to fit correctly). I do open up for prop commissions sometimes. Currently I am too busy to take on commissions but when I can

5 Years!I recently made the milestone of being on Deviant Art for 5 Years! Wow, I've been a member here since way back in year 10 of high school, I did have another page before this one but I barely had anything worth keeping at the time so I just made a new accoun and it's been 5 long and eventful years.5 Years!6 months ago in Personal More Like This
So much has happened since I first made this new account back in 2008 (I know seems like such a long time ago huh?). My life has changed in so many ways and looking back on some of the things I uploaded and wrote here in my journal seem so stupid now, but at the time they were real and true.
I've made friends, lost some and gained new ones. Been through relationships, both the best and worst times of my life, found new skills, talents, wishes, dreams, goals and desires. Been enlightened by some of the toughest experiences and learned from my mistakes, inspired by friends and family and determined to make them proud.
My writing has come such a long way from the simple, cliche love poems
Introducing you COPYIntroducing you COPY, Dropbox's direct competitor.Introducing you COPY7 months ago in Personal More Like This
It's technically the same as Dropbox, but offers much more space at an initial 15gb of cloud space FREE.
So click this https://copy.com?r=veqtNG and it'll take you through my referral to the page.
Why through my referral?
Because when you sign up you get 15GB cloud space free.
But through a referrer's link, once you verify your email and then download & install either the Copy app or program, like dropbox, we both get additional 5GB on top of that.
Now, that's fun and most important more space for free!
Then after that you can introduce it to all your friends for similar results and you can rack up tons of 5GB per referral.
In case you missed the link, click this https://copy.com?r=veqtNG
Just to push up and let more people know about this!
By the way, I have quite a number of users who registered BUT have not install the app/program on their phone or computer, that means it's not a full process, and you won't get t
A mid-year update..Hello everyone It's a Friday night and I'm feeling alright so I thought I'd write out an update just as we approach the middle of the year~A mid-year update..7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Time is flying and some pretty big milestones in my life are coming up. I'm turning 18 in September and my Year 12 exams are in November. University plans have been going back and forth in my head but for now I'm trying to take it all one day at a time. it's only gonna get tougher from here but I'm confident I can smash through it.
Cosplay time: I've been laying low since Supanova due to studies but I had some time last weekend to attend a gaming tournament in Melbourne with :iconbbchibi: which was pretty fun and may have opened up a few awesome opportunities for us in the future (Can't say anything for now)
I've been organizing my next couple of costumes: I really want to pump out Kilik (Soul Eater), Tiger Jackson (Tekken) and Zimos (Saints Row 3) as quickly as possible. I haven't decided if I want to shoot the latter two or just keep them con-
I got tagged and questions for you guys! ~Since I'm such a boring pants I will not copy the rules.. I will just answer the questions and put up ten more and if you want to answer them go ahead and leave a comment! ~I got tagged and questions for you guys! ~7 months ago in Personal More Like This
The 10 Questions I got:
1. What is your favorite book out of anything you read in the past year?
Answer: That must really be the First "The Hunger Games" book, I was really into it just by the first chapter.. I'm planning to read the others when I have time for it! :3
2. What TV, book, manga, or drama couple is your favorite right now?
Answer: Since I'm watching Yu-Gi-Oh currently with my Boyfriend I must say that Puppyshipping (SetoxJono/Joey) is my favorite couple right now! But there is also Cherik (CharlesxErik) from X-Men that I will probably never stop liking and obsessing about!
3. Do you have a favorite Kpop or Jpop band? Artist?
Answer: Unfortunatly I don't listen to K-pop.. J-pop or any pop with a letter before it.. I have never found it intresting to listen to music which I don't understand

I have finally uploaded the Samus set I did a while back and I really hope you all love it as much as I do. Be sure to comment and let me know what you think. Jim did an amazing job yet again with the body painting and photography while the editing was up to me. Samus is one of my favourite female gaming characters (among many to be honest) and she is on my cosplay list in the future for convention wear.
Also next week will be a Black Rock Shooter cosplay that the lovely :iconShelle-chii: lent me for the shoot. I love the character and I can't wait to share it with you guys.

Sony's PS4 Press ConferencePS4:Sony's PS4 Press Conference10 months ago in Personal More Like This
- will work with used PS4 games (the thing that it'd block used games was only a patent they made, which doesn't necessary mean they will ever implement it);
- is not backwards compatible with bought PS3 retail/digital games (you might be able to play them via the Gaikai streaming services, although I fear a repurchase of the respective titles is needed).
Ok, so I needed to state these 2 things first, because it's what counts the most and many persons don't know the truth.
I wanted to wait this much after the press conference to see the media reaction to it and also let the hype train leave me be so I can be more just in my statements, without being a total fanboy as I tend to be for each console separately, when they throw some amazing stuff at me. What drove me this excited was the idea of a new generation and the thought that blew me right into the image of the games I want to see in this new generation, because I just can't imagine how they'll be looking like.
