Intro and Cosplay Casting Call
Post By umbraphotography. 28/05/10, 10:53 am

Hi, I'm Jessi and I'm a metal band, alternative fashion and hopefully soon-to-be cosplay photographer (not QUITE professional yet) from Auckland. My favourite anime series are Elfen Lied, Hellsing, Blood+ and FMA, and gaming-wise, I love Halo, Warcraft and Diablo II.

I want to do some cosplay photoshoots some time after June 25th for my portfolio (they were going to be on posters for Armageddon, but thanks to uni, I'm not doing Armageddon this year).
I will try to get a make-up and hair artist, but I don't drive, so you'll have to have your own transport. You'll also need a costume of reasonably high quality.

The shoot will be a TFCD shoot (time for CD; the shoot isn't paid for with money, but you use my skill as a photographer, I use your skill as a model (even if you aren't one, it doesn't matter), then we both get high-res sets of all the images, for me to use for my portfolio, and for you to use as you please) unfortunately, but it's hopefully going to be a good way for both of us to get our names out there.

Please, please, please, PLEASE do not post a reply unless you have something useful or constructive to say... sorry, but I've had issues with this and people can be very hurtful.

I currently have 3 wigs though, and 4? different lots of hair extensions, and will probably have 1 more wig and 2 more lots of hair extensions by the 25th.

I have/will have:
- white medium-length wig with bangs (I think they class as bangs)
- light pink wig similar to the white one
- black medium length one with electric blue streaks and a fringe
- long dark brown one with blonde and blue streaks
- electric blue medium length extensions
- light pink medium length extensions
- lime green medium length extensions
- hot pink medium length extensions
- red medium length extensions
- long brown human hair extensions.

They're not cosplay wigs and don't correspond to any anime (but the pink one looks like Lucy/Nyuu from Elfen Lied but a bit lighter) but feel free to incorporate them into your outfit for the shoot.

- Jessi.

You might do better to post a request for models/cosplayers in the Auckland Cosplayer section. I'm also interested but not sure if any of my costumes would be up to standard, I can think of several people whose would be though. And if you were keen there's Doujin Overload on July 24th where people will be coming up from places to attend, so a post in that subforum might help too. C:

Hope you enjoy CNZ.

Wow, people are really nice on here!! Thanks for all the help.
Duckeh, I will do what you said. I'm really new to forums haha I joined one today and got through 20 horrible posts to get one useful one telling me to come on here. Also, do you have any pics of any of your costumes? Just in case they ARE up to standard :)

Tails, yeah, unfortunately the photos would be taken in Auckland... but maybe if you can't help me out for this, we can have a photo shoot some other time :)

Tammy, I'm glad you're interested :) I will have to set something up soon, because I'm out of order until June 20th with my uni assignment.

If you guys want my email it's umbraphotography@hotmail.com, and if you want to see some of my work (none of it's cosplay, though, I'm wanting to break into that field now) my Facebook fan page thingy is https://www.facebook.com/umbraphotography
I don't think you have to "Like" it or anything to see my work.

I'm interested? I'm trying to get into the entertainment and modelling scene anyway, and the more experience the better, right? :)

Some of my costumes may not be up to standard, but I am willing to model for anyone who wants to show off their costumes but don't want to model.

Welcome. You'll find that we're all pretty nice here. I hope you enjoy your stay.

Re-l, awesome about Harry and Oli haha I know Harry from school.
What costumes are you making at the moment? July some time would be fine. I've got to finalise all the things like the stall, uniform, business cards and poster printing, but even after July would be ok as long as it's like... well in advance of Armageddon.

KotoneVersus, if you're trying to get into the entertainment and modelling scene then this might be a good idea :) I'm not saying you'll be famous by modelling for me, but it will hopefully get you some more exposure. I also have a couple of friends who are in the modelling industry.

Have you joined Model Mayhem? If you haven't, you definitely should. It's a really good place to get your name out there, work on your portfolio with photographers/makeup artists/hair stylists/wardrobe people etc, and even get some paid work ;)

I'm actually meeting with Talent Scouts tomorrow to discuss shooting a portfolio, so I'll be talking to them about agencies and the like. They'll help me get my name out there. I'm not looking to do modelling or acting as a full time thing, just something fun to do every now and then.

But yeah, I look forward to working with you. Very Happy

Seraphik, I think I did edit them slightly, but I may be wrong... I know I edited the OD one. Sorry about that.

KotoneVersus, that's awesome, and I will try to figure out a shooting time.

Re-l, all of those costumes look awesome.

Another thing for you all... I've not watched much anime, just the stuff I said I liked, and a little bit more (like Hell Girl, DeathNote etc) so you might have to help me with locations and stuff like that haha.

Oh, I forgot... I probably want to do these in the studio with a white background, so locations won't matter so much, and I'll have all the lighting I need. If you look at my fashion photos, that's kind of what I mean.

EDIT BY MOD: As seraphik warned you less than 20 minutes before you posted again, please refrain from double posting. Please use the Edit button instead. If you continue to double post your may find you 'double' post deleted instead of merged. Thank you.

Sorry, I just realised double-posting includes adding stuff I forgot and I didn't know I could edit my posts... sorry >.<

Actually, when are you guys free (the ones who are keen for the shoot, between June 20 and September 1)? So I can write out a plan for myself :)

And sorry if this ends up getting posted twice. I posted it once but it didn't appear.............

Post By umbraphotography. 07/06/10, 02:14 am

I have hit quite a large glitch... I may not be doing Armageddon anymore... my uni was stupid and had the wrong date on the brief, and i just found out that it's due THIS Friday, not in 3 weeks time, and they waited until Friday to tell us. They also waited until Friday to tell us that we have to have more of our assignments printed.... which is going to cost me over $750 because I only have 2 days to print them, instead of the required 3, which adds 50% onto my cost... This also cuts $450 into my Armageddon money :"( I'd only set aside $300 for my mid-year assessment, and it would have cost only $190 if I only had to print the one, and had 3 days for printing.

But if you guys still want to take them regardless (I still might do Armageddon but it's looking very unlikely) I will be happy to do it still if you all figure out a location and stuff (long, stupid stroy about the lighting studio being unavailable) because a lot of your characters I'm not familiar with.

Welcome,

I'm sure that a lot of people will be happy for photos still, anytime they can.
I'm not sure but I think Static was fully booked doing photos at Auckgeddon last year. And Liliapmedia is tied up doing offical geddon stuff (like wondering around shooting cosplayers.) So there may well be enough demand for two photographers there?

I would have pointed out the implications of the uni's decision and asked them to push it back. I mean $400 is no joke. And the student union would probably see it your way too.

Also like the trinity blood outfits, like wow, just wow.

Re: Intro and Cosplay Casting Call
Post By umbraphotography. 07/06/10, 11:39 am

I just bought tickets for the 3 days. I'm going to be buying props and costumes mainly, but I was wondering what the camera rules are for Armageddon... because believe it or not... I don't OWN a non-bulky-non-SLR camera, except my DLR medium format camera, and the one on my phone... I'm really shy so not uber comfortable approaching people for photos haha!

We haven't got a student union; I go to a private art university. My whole class are very upset as we won't be able to finish our work to our best ability, and we will be tight for printing. I have just found out I will probably have to add 75% onto my cost because I'll need it overnight, as it's due at 9:00a.m. Friday, so I will have to spend all of Thursday putting it on the wall... measuring... and making sure it's all straight... so thats... I just worked it out at $915.25. It didn't help that this weekend was Queen's birthday weekend and so nothing is open, so we're trying to get 5 days work into 4 days. Also, the uni will always be of the mind that it's the student's problem, not theirs.

There's nothing we can do now but do the work, hand it in, file a complaint, and make damn sure that this sort of thing doesn't happen again. As soon as it appears to happen again, I'm going to report it because the stress of this has given me panic attacks and ruined my idea of going to Armageddon (though I'm happy with looking around. That was the only thing I would have been disappointed with).

I'm happy to still do everyone's photos, and now, they will still have to be done after the 20th of June, but there's no like... end-date. Anytime after then will be fine just let me know when and where.
