Hello my lovelies 🙂 I had a wonderful day yesterday at the Buckeye public schools Special Olympics field day!! I’d like to thank C4 Charity movie cars for inviting me to join the Mystery Machine for this event. I would also like to thank all of you that support my patreon as well as my indigogo for my new cosplay book. Backing my cosplay projects is a great way to give cosplay credibility in the art community as well as allow me to open up my schedule for community events like this. So please thank yourself for making it possible for these kids to have this experience. And a huge thank you to all of the teachers, aids, nurses, and caregivers that work with these beautiful children day after day. Without you, these kids would have no quality of life. I am blessed to have this opportunity. Here are some pictures of yesterdays event.
Only 4 days left to get in on my new 13 month, full color, full glossy, full cosplay, CALENDAR!! Get in on extra special exclusive items such as prints, postcards, banners, and even the opportunity to have your own birthday or holiday of your choice added to the calendar!!
Recently there has been a huge backlash on social media regarding what cosplay is and what it isn’t. The line between underwear and cosplay, what should cosplayers get as con guests, and so on and so forth. The reality is, cosplay is simply costume-play. dressing up as a character and being that character to whatever extent you see fit. So look, we have enough laws and rules in this world without adding on a bunch more. So I say to you, do what makes you happy, scroll past what doesn’t and “Party On Dude!”
In honor of facebook’s incessant need to judge cosplayers as well as decide what is and isn’t cosplay here is a free mini photo set and collage. This collage print will go out to patrons at the $35 and up level.
In celebration, here’s a pic from this month’s shoot! Let me know what you think!
I’m not posting the rest of the Supergirl pics here until Thursday but you can see them now on Patreon and its also the last day to join if you want some of the printed rewards. Thanks again to all my backers! I heart emoticon you
Supergirl shoot is up!! So excited! And lots of bonuses this month for those of you thinking of joining. Let me know what you think. When you sign up for my patreon you not only get the current month but the previous months as well. I always try to add some bonus shots from other things that I do. Thanks again for all of the love and support.
I often get asked if I do nude shoots and if I have nude prints. Yes….and no. Yes I have been nude for shoots but my prints are limited to implied nudity. Why? Because I want to. Do I recommend it? Hell yes. I think that it’s important to learn about your body and how it works and really looks. It helps me to grasp body structure and posing ideas as well as builds confidence. Now, I’m not saying that you should just go off prancing around naked everywhere (unless that’s your thing of course). I am also not saying that everyone should shoot with random photographers naked. I believe in safety first. I only shoot this way with people I know and trust that I have built a professional relationship with. This is not only confidence building but also humbling. Even just shooting some pics with your phone in a mirror can accomplish this. On the one hand you can end up with some beautiful artistic shots that make you feel like a beauty queen. Then on the flip side you will get some pics that will show off every stretch mark, pimple, scar, lump, bump, and wrinkle, crinkle, and cellulite dimple you have. As a pro model and cosplayer I do believe that it is important to recognize your humanity and the reality that you are just as flawed as the newbie who criticizes themselves and emotionally beats themselves up with feelings of inadequacy. At the end of the day, we are all the same. People are people, art is art, and we are of peace…Always.
