Happy Holidays! As with all of my updates lately – I haven’t really done much cosplay-wise. Though Kelly made a outfit based on the Tonner Dolls (Ghost of Christmas Future) and let me do her makeup and take some pictures which was extremely fun. I still have an unhealthy number of unfinished costumes which continue to stare mournfully at me every time I enter the workroom. I feel like I’ve learned a lot more about photo stuff in the past year that I haven’t really had a chance to incorporate in my own cosplay photos which… is a bit annoying. That, combined with my newly cleaned work area and swanky new toys (camera accessories) may finally drive me to finish some of this crap and get some new photos. …or maybe I’ll just have more tea and watch movies with Kelly. We’ll see.
While I don’t usually post about bits in zines, etc. I’m making an exception here. Mechademia is a very cool publication put out by the University of Minnesota Press, and they did a piece about cosplay photography which they were kind enough to include me in! Thank you so much Eron, Christopher, and Jenny (though none of you are likely to ever see this post!). I’m really honored to have my work included and reviewed so highly! @_@ Mechademia 5: Fanthropologies is available here.
