Interview for March: Neil CreekMelbourne cosplay photographer Neil Creek is our fourth interviewee. His dA profile is neilcreek, and his photography was featured last February: http://melcospho.deviantart.com/art/Featured-photographer-for-February-Neil-Creek-282772293
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

Let's make a look back to probably one of the greatest anime films ever made, that not many people respect as they should.
I remember the first time I lays eyes on this trailer.....I have to repeat this like 20 times (it was in a VHS tape....and that's kinda not that easy), just the trailer was enough for amaze the living shit out of me, and later I watch the first film "Vampire Hunter D" (1985), so i COULDN'T wait to see this one....I saw for the first time with a group of friends in college, and blow me away, but
SEXY."IF YOU DON'T WANT PEOPLE SEXUALLY ASSAULTING YOU, MAYBE YOU SHOULDN'T DRESS LIKE THAT!"More Like This
This is often the response I receive when I retaliate against sexual harassment. Welcome to the current trend in the cosplay scene.
Over the years, cosplay has grown in popularity and in power. Cosplayers famous enough can make a living off this hobby while travelling the world, and even the regular con-goers can be approached to be part of a major game launch. Major developers are finally listening to our input, creating complex and detailed characters that anyone can fall head over heels for. Some people hit their head hard when they fall, though. Too hard.
Sex sells in any industry, and the geek subculture has no exemption from this law. Female characters are regularly tossed in skimpy outfits to draw in their target audience, with their fleshbags defying gravity and cameltoes getting way more attention than needed. But seriously, what is wrong with this? What is wrong

Carciphona volume 1 sold out not long ago, and I’ve finally restocked those this week!Shipping prices lowered as promised in the past month!
I’ve been working on figuring out a new shipping company last month, and I am ready (I think LOL MAYBE) to switch over! Shipping has always been the bane of my shop because I’m in Canada. I’ve got tons of questions about it in the past year that range from confused to outraged. But it’s in my best interest to find ways to lower shipping prices, because while some people are in such disbelief that Canadian shipping can be that bad (it can) might even think that I bloat shipping prices to make more money, high shipping costs actually makes me lose business because SURPRISE, no one wants to buy overpriced things.
The new company ships through USPS which means I can lower shipping prices to USA by as much as 70%

(CLOSED) AUCTION - Sketch ''Shy Kitty''Here's the third pencil sketch auction. If you missed the previous ones, the idea here is that I'm selling original physical copies of some of the pencil sketches I did earlier this year. This time it's a sexy catgirl in bed. See below for details on the item, links to samples, and instructions on how to bid! This auction is open for roughly 6 days, ending on 25th.More Like This
BONUS FOR PARTICIPATING:
Everyone who bids on a sketch auction during December will participate in a raffle I'll hold at the end of the year. The randomly-drawn winner of the raffle will receive at least two items, which can be either original sketches/doodles or leftover prints (probably one of each!). Your bid doesn't need to win an auction in order to participate in the raffle! Bidding in each auction earns you an additional raffle ticket (but only one per auction item!). So go ahead, up that bid. Even if you don't win the auction, you might win the raffle.

(CLOSED) - AUCTION - ''Beach Pranks FTW''So, I figured it's a shame having the pencil works I did earlier this year just gathering dust (well, not literally, since they're still in the sketchbook, but I'm sure you get the idea), so I figured I'd sell off some of them. For how much? I dunno! You tell me! So, let's try an auction! I'll start off with the older ones and if this goes well, then I'll move on to the newer ones! I'll probably post some promotions and reminders about these auctions again, so bear with this campaign bombing your updates every now and then.More Like This

Interview for September: Lisa ShihMelbourne cosplay photographer Blackcrane56 (Lisa Shih) is our second interviewee. She won the MelCosPho 7 photography competition.More Like This
Q: How did you get into cosplay and cosplay photography?
Lisa: I first discovered cosplay when I just started getting into anime in high school and came across it online. I was fascinated and would spend hours on Cosplay.com and deviantArt just looking up cosplays of all my favourite characters. 2008 saw my first official cosplay. I attended my first Manifest that year, cosplaying the 3rd Exorcist uniform version of Lavi from D.Gray Man. It was such a failure of a first cosplay; I didn't even have a wig on back then.
I didn't start getting serious about this photography hobby until late 2010. When my friends and I first started cosplaying, we didn't know anyone in the community really, and had only just started attending meets—late starters we were—so it became a habit of ours to just do shoots for each other.
