Hello

I'm Nerieru.
I live in Seoul and I love photography and I love cosplays.
So I wanted to blend my two loves into one.


I've been wanting to get into Cosplay photography for a while but I need subjects/models.
Since I've been here, I've mostly been doing landscape and website photography for Korean fashion sites.
Here is a sample of my work.

If you are interested at all in having photos of your cosplay(s) taken in beautiful locations, please let me know.


Thank you.

Don't live in Seoul so I don't think I'll have the time to go up for photos;;

However, just like to mention that there's a cafe/community on Naver called CoSaMo (코사모: translated to something like ppl who love cosplay I guess?) who have a gathering in a park every month or so of both cosplayers and photographers.
Photographers have to pay a one-time fee of 5,000 won (I think...) for the name tag and registration, and they require you to post at least 3 of the pictures you took on their website, but there's going to be around few hundred cosplayers, and about 50~60ish photographers.
It's nothing like Seould Comic, which is a convention.
These meeting are just for cosplayers/photographers who want to pose for/take good cosplay photos.
And since it's pretty much a monthly meeting, plenty of chances to take different types of photographs neh?

Since I'm not sure how fluent you are in Korean, might help to have a friend who's fluent in it to help navigate the site, read up on the guidelines for the meetings, and register for the events~

Hope it helps~~

P.S. There's a monthly meeting coming up this Sunday on the 24th, and a special "Fall Edition" on Nov. 4th I think?
Think I'm going to be there for the Fall Edition meeting~~

Is there a group for this near Osan? I live in Seoul but I like being near Osan better... T AT
I just got my camera... I would like to practice without people being too harsh too.

I'm moving to Osan in Feburary. I have a Princess Peach cosplay if you want to practice taking cosplay photos with me. I wouldn't mind. :)

This is pretty much a Seoul-only thing, but the community does have a board where you can look up people asking for photoshoots, so you can try finding people near Osan there if you want.
However, like I said, it's a monthly thing, so it shouldn't be too bothersome to go up to Seoul for one day right?
>x< I'm coming up from Jeollabuk-do afterall lol.

Seems like there's going to be 500 cosplayers + 100 photographers for this weekends group meeting o.O;;;

If you're interested in going, I'll ask the admins for the event if you can sign up under my name, at least for the November 4th meeting.
(Not sure about other dates, since I don't know which ones I'll attend)
As for directions, if you're ok with riding subways, I'll be happy to tell you how to get to the meeting from where you live, then meet up with you to sign in!

OOOH~~ See you there then~~
I'll be going as demon Ciel or a character named Kaya from Doll's Requiem (Korean manhwa with lot of pretty drawings lol)
Probably the latter seeing as my lenses aren't here yet...
(was crazy enough to buy the contract lens and red cat eye lens from 9mm, but they're not going get here in time T_T)

Where is the meeting at? Do I have to sign up for it or can I just show up? xD

Before that, do you have a naver account?
Search up 코사모(코스프레를사랑하는모임) if you do, and join the group.
The even should be sticked somewhere on the front page.
They're not too happy with people just showing up without signing up, so if you can, it's better if you do, especially if you're going there as a photographer.

Oops, seems like the dates Nov. 7th >x<;;;
Had wrong date....

Anyways, if you go down the first page, there should be a red lettered post
"2010년 11월 7일 "코사모 색다른촬영회 15회- 단풍촬영회"를 개최합니다."

Sign-up is until the day before or something, so there's plenty of time~
