General Info
I'll be at AX and available for photoshoots for FREE all 4 days. This is my first time doing this so cosplayers may have to bare with me and my fumbling. I'm not too familiar with some of the newer action animes, but if you tell me what your planning to cosplay as I'll try and watch the show and get a better idea of what kinds of poses and locations to use.

Yeah I'll be there on Thursday for sure, I am still working out the exact time I will be arriving though. I am hoping to make it in during the morning.

I can do a shoot on both days.


@AzureCo & Yggdrasil Pie what are you planning on cosplaying as? Wanna get an idea of what locations to use and do some research. Also what times would be good for you?

I'm going as Jade Curtiss and my friend will be Peony from Tales of the Abyss.
Sunset actually sounds fun, or early evening.

Hello! My name is Ting, and I am interested in having some photoshoots with you if you're still available for the following times:

Thurs @ 6pm, or I'll take the 8pm spot if 6pm isn't convenient.

Fri @ 8pm

Sat @ 4pm or any other time before 6pm is fine too

on Thurs I am going to be a Naruto version of Mad Hatter, and I'll have a cane with me, so may be something indoors, like at a hotel lobby? I'm not familiar with downtown LA either since I'm from the SF Bay , too!

Fri I'm going to be ANBU Black Ops from Naruto, and something outdoor would be nice, I'll also have a sword and some kunais as props.

Sat I'm going to be Sexy no Jutsu Kiba from Naruto, yea I know, it's all Naruto... >_< and Kiba is supposed to have a dog, but I don't have access to one... so I was thinking I'll bring some magic bubbles and shoot outdoors under the sun...

I know you're offering the shoots free, but I wouldn't mind buying lunch or dinner as thanks! :toothy:

You can also drop me a line at my DA here (http://saiyanzrepublik.deviantart.com/) if you want.

Thanks you!

Which ever one works best for you. These are going to be outdoor only slots so because of the way the light is going to work in them I think they would work best that way, unless I find an indoor location with lots of windows for light to come in. Just tell me when one ya prefer and i'll lock that slot in for you.

Would 6pm Friday work?
Outdoors sounds fine!
And, I actually just figured out that another friend will be going with us as Anise Tatlin, so that makes three of us.

I was wondering if you can fill me in for a spot on Thursday around 5pm? If that doesn't work, how about Friday around 2pm?

My cosplay would be most likely Ryu from Street Fighter. I usually carry a book full of art for any ideas I need for gatherings and such, but also in case you would like to see it yourself for perspectives on certain shots or if I can't explain it in words heh. So yeah, I would appreciate it if you can do this.

roflwaffles
06-10-2010, 01:28 PM
@Truest_Strike,
Neither of those times are currently in my list of spots available. I know for sure that I can't do Friday at 2pm. I'll look into Thrusday at 5pm though. If you look at my times currently available right now perhaps there is another that is suitable for you.

Truest_Strike
06-10-2010, 01:42 PM
How about Friday 1pm? I thought 2pm was there and it was my mistake. Don't worry about Thursday--thanks for looking into it though.

Saturday at 5pm looks good if Friday at 1pm can't happen.

wow! late. Ummm...I imagine lighting will be a pretty massive issue. But then again, I've seen some people take really great night shots. =) I'm going as Tayuya from Naruto in her Curse LVL 2 form with the horns

The scenes are all in a relatively dark forest so that *might* work. what do you think? ^_^

Hey I was wondering if the spot for Friday at 9 is still available, if so can I possibly have it? If not any other night works for me! I don't care about lighting cuz I actually want my cosplay pics taken at night(I'll be doing Saki Morimi from Eden of the East)

Also there's so way you can do shoots for Thurs. during the day huh? Sunday during the day I may want as well.

I will have some lighting equipment with me, so it might not be a problem. As for the dark forrest part, there is not much greenery the convention center at least that i've seen on google maps so not sure how well that will work out. Can always give it a shot. I'll hold this position for you a little bit and give you some time to decide.

At this moment someone beat you two the two evening spots, based on when I got contacted. I'm gonna give kiwi5frog some time to decide what to do. If she doesn't want to do it at this time, I can give it to you. Thursdays are up in the air right now. I'm coming down with a small group and trying to allocate time to hang out, so until I know what they are doing I won't have any spots opened up yet. Sunday is still all opening so if you want to do something on that date let me know and I can setup something for you.

You are awesome waffle. I think 9pm is late for me, so please let someone else take it. Thank you so much for holding for me though. I can be such an old lady sometimes when it comes to "staying out at night". another time perhaps! Thanks!

Hello! I'm a little new to all this but I'm ecstatic about getting photos for my Deadmaster cosplay. The character is rather dark so I would actually prefer a photoshoot at night, so I'm definitely interested! Is the spot open? :]

@kittykax I've got that spot on hold for you but please notify be via PM if you are really going to take it.

Just a side note, if anyone is still looking for their pictures to be taken, follow me on twitter @richardtom during the con. I might tweet out locations some impromptu shooting sessions that I will be doing for anyone who stops by. These will most likely happen on Thursday & Saturday afternoon if they do occur.

Ah, I see cool. Think I'm gonna have to wait till next year and plan early. Hotels rates are just crazy right now. A holiday inn in SD costs more than the ritz in LA, too rich for my blood. Cant justify that cost to myself.

ah that's unfortunately. I few of my friends are coming for just 1 or 2 days, so they are just driving down in the morning and driving back in the evening.
