Free photoshoots available for cosplay book....*(UPDATED INFO FOR MODELS!!)*
Hello to all the cosplayers here and all the other members on the forum, and thanks for taking the time to have a look at my thread! My name is Alex Vann and I am finishing my final year of university in Lincoln. Im studying photography and as part of my final year i am compliling a book all about cosplay! I am making a part documentary- part portraiture book similar to the style of FRUITS, and hope to publish it after university. The style of the book will be to photograph cosplayers in and out of costume, showing them as their normal selves and as their alter-ego in full costume. I know it may sound a bit unnerving to some to be photographed out of costume, but the aim of the book is to show how when you cosplay, you can transform yourself from your normal self, to your favourite character from any Anime, Manga comic or computer game. I am looking for volounteers willing to allow me to professionally photograph them both in, and out of costume, free of charge. Any volounteers will be given a copy of the images to keep for themselves as well. So, if you fancy a free photoshoot, complete with full professional makeup if required, please contact me either on here or at

Your help is much appreciated!
Thanks a lot!
Alex Vann

I like the idea. I think its a nice idea to get photos of people both in and out of cosplay. Two sides of the same coin as it were.

I'd be up for it if you want. : )
If you have more details, drop me a PM. ^^

HAHA

Oh god yes "Mr Tab Kimpton with his Ivy Valentine costume"

Sorry, in real life (ie, not in cosplay) I'm a nerdy man who likes to wear jumpers. So I've really got the alternate personality thing going on when it comes to this stuff.

I would love to do this.

This seems to be a popular idea! I'd be really interested in seeing the finished result. I'd be up for this too, depending on where you're located - if you're coming to any cons that'll be helpful too. ^_^

This sounds really fun!

Fabulous in and out of cosplay, we all are!


07 Jan 2009 - 10:489275
Whereabouts will you be shooting these?


07 Jan 2009 - 15:069304
Wow!! I didn't expect such an enthusiastic response!!Thank you all very much! I am based in Lincoln, which i know is quite a way away for some of you, but for the sake of continuity, i have to take the photographs in a studio environment. However, I am also able to possibly get a makeshift studio together in Birmingham in my garage!so that would make travelling easier for some of you! If you are able to make it to the studios in Lincoln however, i can arrange some accommodation for you to stay over. The plan is to shoot you in your normal clothes and with little or no makeup on against a black and a white background, and then do the same again with you in costume. If you have groups of people you want to bring to be shot, that is fine too, the more the merrier! the general rule of thumb as far as costumes are concerned is bring either, your favourite, your best, or your most extravagant! if you have any other questions, please feel free to ask, and im really glad you all like the idea!

What's your time scale on this? I'm a bit tied up with work and costume-making until after Minamicon is out of the way, and I suspect it may be the same for a lot of other people.
