It's been around since the beginning of January. I got my picture in there for Animazement 2002 for Ranma Saotome. His name is Kevin Lillard. He is a tall, heavy setblack guy with a real fance camera. If you see him, ask nicely about it and give him some pocky. :)

I was interviewed for the book. I am very curious to see the final product, and any new pictures Kevin might have up his sleeve.

I think they are hoping to get all material for it this year. But, if things get delayed could go into next year. Or, if book does well possibly could be more then one issue.

oooo. someone please tel him to ask people to stop for pics, cause my outfit wasn't great and my hair looks bad and I am fat but I think the pic is worse cause I couldn't pose, he just yelled something and snapped it while I was walking by, why I am kinda looking at the camera. Everyone else looks pretty....
I am the pretty sammy (first pic on the page)

Rayechu - you aren't fat, if you were that means I am worse then fat. Its just not the best pose, costume looks fine but facial expression shows you were caught offguard.

If Kevin is in a hurry he does that sometimes, there are a couple of unposed pics of me he got that I cringe at. He actually has cut down on the commando sneak pics.

lol yeah confidence boost. Setsuna Kou made the costume. I would like a book. But I REALY hope the put character and series under each pisture because I haven't seen slayers and sorcerer hunter and some anime other people recognize easily. I look at con pics and am like eva, dunno dunno dunoo, chii, dunno dunno dunno, pokemon, dunno dunno dunno

Yes they are different, Fansview is interviewing both male & female costumers, and supposed to be close to a done deal. Tiger Lee's book seems like it is more cheesecake focused, as only female and seems also to be only photos and as far as I know has not found publisher yet.

I'll bet if I mention this on COSP ML I'll get a reaction of "Who?". :D

I think it has already been mentioned on cosp, as my sister knew about it and she doesn't frequent cosplay message boards but she lurks on cosp.

I must've missed it then, cuz I've been on cosp ml a year to the month. :D

Tiger Lee's book is a good thng, but yet I don't like it... :/

I went through his site... Uhm well... I'm not the type to critique, but half those girls on his site are well, simply... Woof woof. ^^;

I like majority of pics on Lee's site, except 1 that wasn't well posed and 2 others that were a bit too cheesecake for me. The general look and poses of the photos I think would look better on trading cards instead of in a book.

I only looked at the Otakon 2001... That Anthy scared me! After looking at Ranma Saotome, I stopped... I couldn't take it anymore. *twitch*
