University Photography Project - Models needed

Im working on helping a photographer with a project on emerging fashion trends from Japan that we are seeing in the UK.

This of course is covering cosplay/ Lolita/ Steampunk/ Visual Kei etc etc.

We are looking for anyone who might be interested in being a model, and of course would make sure you get a copy of the prints.

Anyone interested please contact me!


P.S link for photographers flickr. Only new but being updated over next few days

Hiya, i would be very interested ^^ what part of the uk will you be doing this in?


22 Feb 2011 - 19:2050893
interested also but i am in manchester if thats of any use

22 Feb 2011 - 19:3250894
I be interested also! But where do you want these photos?

22 Feb 2011 - 19:5350896
Well if anyone is in London that would be fantastic, but we do have the ability to get to other places, aside from manchester where are others based?

22 Feb 2011 - 19:5550898
Essex. But It takes around 30/45 minutes to get to London from where I am so London should be good for me.

22 Feb 2011 - 20:3050905
I'm in London and would definitely consider it.

I'm a bit confused as to why Steampunk would be listed amongst fashion trends from Japan though...

22 Feb 2011 - 20:5550908

Hey SJ,

Ive popped you on a list, the steam punk pics you have are great. Do you have any fellow steam punkers who are also in london that might be up for some group shots?

Hey there,

My name is Scott and i am the photographer working with Anita for this project. Thought i'd introduce myself properly. Anita and myself have both being trying to network to find some people who are interested and willing to take part in this project.

Thank you all so much for the fantastic response, i will outline my aims and objectives for this project which is inherently a module for university but also an exciting opportunity to create some great work.

I am hoping to produce images that reflect the growing subculture and consequent fashion trends that have been influenced by Japanese alternative fashion and harajuku. I want to show how this influence is seen, felt and adapted in the UK. This is an editorial body of work, and if it is as successful as i hope i will pitch it to a suitable magazine (SuperSuper being my present choice). (With your permission of course!!)

In response to Steampunk being included, i agree that it does not have roots in japanese fashion, but is very Western. It is from my experience of attending anime cons, mcm expo, harajuku ball and the grand international cosplay ball that i have been introduced to steampunk fashion and culture. I feel that in the UK this style interlinks with the aforementioned genres and scene as a whole. Plus i really like it and want to shoot some photographs!!

Once again thank you so much and feel free to contact me with any questions.

I'd be happy to do this, I can do either Lolita or Decora/Osharekei style. I am based in London

26 Feb 2011 - 00:3751184
Hey dokucherry, thanks for the interest. Really liked your pictures, especially the Ciel Phantomhive. Do you have any Decora style photos that i could see, i would really like to shoot that as it seems to be fairly rare to find. Myself or Anita (my gf who is helping with the organisation) can drop you a pm with some dates to see your availability. Thanks again, hope to hear from you soon


26 Feb 2011 - 00:5151185
This could be fun. I do a Elegant Gothic Aristocrat style generally with very elaborate makeup. I can get to London but need plenty of notice so I can afford to get down and book time off work.

I have also been known to dabble in J-music influenced costumes, like Versailles, D and Visual Kei etc!

That is of course if you are interested in this style!!

PM me if you want any more info!

Colour me interested ^_^ I've hopefully got plenty of costumes for you to choose from so let me know if you're interested in any of my stuff (including the Steampunk) and let me know what kind of dates are best.

I live in London but work a pretty hectic schedule so can only really do weekends!

Heya, you contacted me via message about modelling I am interested, i do have photos of my lolita costume; im not a cutesy lolita; more Victoria styled, the classic Lolita style. ^_^

26 Feb 2011 - 11:2051199
Wow guys this response is really great!

1000014 - Thank you - a visual kei outfit would be great as that was an area was really wanted to cover but was having difficulty in finding- i will send you a PM!

SJ - We loved the steampunk stuff, its brilliant. If you have a favourite steampunky outfit that you like to wear let me know and we'll check out those pictures, we of course want you to feel comfortable in what you are wearing to get the best images possible.

Holli- i hadnt forgotten about you! Victorian Lolita sounds great as it will be nice to have a range of Lolita styles, if you can just show me a picture of it so i have an idea that would be fantastic!

Timetable for Model Shoots
Hi all, again thank you for your fantastic enthusiasm for this project. Its really appreciated!

We've drawn up a timetable of weekends for shoots, however if anyone is available in the easter holiday period then we can do a string of days in that time. If you find that a weekday would be better for you, please let me or scott know and will do our best to see if we can accomodate that.

Dates to be looked at (weekends- mainly sundays but if you need a saturday just shout!)

13th March
20th March
27th March
3rd April
17th April
Easter 22 April - 2nd May (possibly earlier in that week as well)

Let me know how you guys feel about any of those!

many thanks!


26 Feb 2011 - 12:1051201
Hey! I appear to be late into this thread, but I can do sweet lolita if you want me x3 and I am free to be in London every weekend!

26 Feb 2011 - 13:1351208
Hi Indecisive,

thanks for the interest. Do you have any pics of your lolita outfit? just to get an idea of what we could be working with and how it would link up?



26 Feb 2011 - 17:0551219
Pm'ing you now

26 Feb 2011 - 19:2651224
Would the 23rd of April be alright for you two? Sundays aren't really the best days for me and I don't really want to be an inconvience and ask if you could do a Saturday then as well as the Sunday.
