I have a chronic prolem. :drink:

Haha..NO not that one! LOL! :D

I almost never get any good pictures of my costumes. (everyone elses mind you, but not mine) <rueful laugh> :( Sometimes I don't have pictures at all. (Thus the pathectic amount acutally attached to this account). At best I often have to settle for fuzzy, dark or badly posed ones.

I'm sure others often have similar problems. So here is what I am proposing. I'd like to form a Cosplay Picture Exchange.

Everyone who belonged to the exchange club would be on a master list. When they took pictures at a con the would submit those of cosplayers to be catolouged. Eventally each cosplayer would have a archive of available pictures that can be written to CD for them. We might get some great shots we never would have otherwise!


We could do a trial locally to see how it works.
Anyone interested?

Sounds great Dawn, but who's going to be the librarian? I'll do ya one better--Sometime after TT, I want to get a whole passel of us in High Park to take photos. Bring Godzilla and we can have him rampage around scaring pedestrians! XD

^_^ That sounds like fun! I can *sooo* see the little kids looking up in awe and the parents wondering if they should run for their lives! ^_^

As for the picture exchange, I like the idea a lot. I have to keep searching around for *any* pictures of me from Anime North. If this works it will be great not to have to do that so much. ^_^

That sounds like a kickass idea.
There is a really cool park near Brampton also called 'Eldorado park' its right on the credit river and no one is ever there.
I think we should make like the californians and hold a few photoshoots in different places for the GTA/Canadian cosplay.com people.

I know a few proff. photographers who would be VERY interested.

I'm so glad everyone seems positive regarding the idea.
As it's my idea I volunteer to be "librarian" I have a large amount of storage space on my computer so it would be no problem, as well I'd write things to disk as they came in. (It doen't hurt to have a roomate that works at a photolab either)

I'm going to come up with more details soonish. Please forward any ideas you may have as well..,.speaking of which...

I love your idea Sarcam about the photo shoot in High Park. Could we arrange it for early Sept (after Worldcon?) I'll be gone most of July and will be giving the old 'zilla one last refurb for worldcon. Also I'll have to arrange a ride with someone in possession of a van. LOL! It's a superfantastic idea and I definately want to be involved.

:) ~ Cheers!

Well since I'm sure that we all have more than one costume we'd like good pics of, and since I'm not sure what kind of facilities High Park has for costume-changing and primping, Chobrat's idea of having more than one photoshoot is a good one. We can hold one shoot in July, then one in Sept with Godzilla...we could even maybe have the summer Cosplay Meetups (http://cosplay.meetup.com) (once a month) be straight-out photoshoots. ^_^

If possible, it would be great if there could be one before September....some of us will no longer be local come September. University calls. =/

Count me in, whenever. Just be sure not to do things once autumn has set, because my main costume is VERY drafty.

I'm very excited that everyone is up for this. :) I've already started scanning and archiving the pictures I have. I'm experimenting with an easy filing code. From time to time I'm going to need help identifying/naming characters. I STILL haven't seen it all. <sheepish grin>

Oh. I hadn't thought of this! Sorry! (Dawn ! Bad old lady!!) :crylaugh:

Indeed! :D You're one of a kind Natchoman, we definately don't want you catching a cold.

As for the pre September meet I might be able to make it if it's on a SUNDAY. I'm at trek the weekend of the 11th and G-FEST the weekend after that.. <laughs> <sighs> With those exceptions I'll work around whatever the group decideds.

OOooo first canadian cosplay photo picnic party. :cheers:
<happy dance>

~Cheers! Dawn :juggler:

Thanks for the info Kia! :) :D

Kisa, you're in Kitchener? If so maybe we could make arrangements for you to come out with some friends of mine. Especially if we have a sept BBQ. :) Some of the video staff from AN live out there.

Oops... well that does throw a wrench in things!! :confused: Kisa anyone else out your way cosplaying? Could you organize a get together there? Truth is people that we could have little shoots all over Ont and surrounding areas by the A N attending cosplayers. As long as we have computers and scanners/digital cameras we can e-mail the pics and I can collect them in the archive.) :D We will perservere for the art! <strikes triumphant pose> :rockon: LOL!
