Hey, Coscom! Long time no see.

So, quick question for those of you here in the thread.

At Winter SacAnime, there was a guy (well, actually two, and I'm only just finding out about the second one) who was giving out photos of cosplayers; some of the photos were of me. I'm personally extremely weirded out by this; it's not so much a privacy thing, as my Gala Pinkie cosplay (both instances were photos of said costume) has gotten quite a bit of attention and is easily found on a google search. But I was never asked for permission or anything, and furthermore I'm a little creeped out by the idea of a stranger having a physical copy of a photo of myself that's not for say, portfolio purposes.

So, my question is, is this a common occurrence, or what? I've never been in this situation before, and don't think I know anyone personally who has.


But on a lighter note, I bought my fabric for Ultimate Madoka today! The lady at the cutting counter was pretty shocked when I said I wanted 13 yards of the white satin I'd brought up... ahahaha

I've never heard of that, but that sounds rather creepy. Especially if you don't know who this person even is...

Not a clue. The first guy handed over the photo of me in question (and promised they were the only copies.) The second instance I'm still trying to look into (like I said, I'm only just now finding out there was another person doing the same thing), but my friend who told me about it won't be able to show me her copy of the photo until tomorrow. Thing is, if she's remembering it correctly, it might not be the original photographer handing it out, because at the very least it apparently looks very similar to this photo and the guy who took that one wasn't giving anything out at con; so he's about as freaked out as I am right now (and understandably so, since someone might've been giving out his work.) I texted her a picture of the photo from the first guy and she said it's definitely a separate case.

I'm just kinda "WTF"ing over this right now. o__o;

I'm so happy. So ridiculously happy.
I gambled and it payed off today.
I got the wig for my Scheris Adjani cosplay and I had buyers' remorse immediately after ordering it. I was worried it was going to be too dark, too short, too thing, too everything bad and nothing good.

I got it before I went to work today, so it's been sitting on the wig head since I left for work.
The first thing I did when i got home was pull my hair out of it's ponytail holder and start pinning it to put a wig cap over it.

There is literally barely any styling that is going to have to be done to this wig.
The color is just the shade I wanted and it's thick. It's thick and luxurious and no one understands.

And it's really adorable un-styled.

I'm just so happy about cosplay right now. x_x

Awesome cosplay shopping day...even thought it was suppost to be a cosplaying making day. *sweatdrop* I didn't bring my scissors and my friend lost his scissors so it was a bit of a fail... But I got all the fabric to make Jin, 5$ white sheet from goodwill for Sinbad, and 10 sheets of craft foam.

...Guess what I'll be doing on Monday? ^^ Making cosplay!~ Tomorrow, I need to do my homework. T_T

I'm not really sure. With the first guy, I simply asked for the photos of myself and explained that I was uncomfortable with someone giving out pictures of me especially since I never gave permission etc., but I'm not sure if he really got the message. He just kinda seemed to shrug it off. OTL

With this case though, my photographer and I are primarily concerned that it might've been his work. We don't know if we can really do much about it aside from simply being more aware next time. I'd been stuck at my Artist Alley table 99.9% of the time, so I only even found out about the first guy because a couple of friends of mine brought me the photo, explained what was happening, and took me to where he was so I could talk to him.

Well, I hope you can get the situation sorted out... It sounds complicated.

Try Rack Room shoes. Look for she stores that are going out of business. Yesterday I got two pairs of $50 heels for $5 a pair!

Determined to get moving on Richter's weapons. Get up, pour coffee, print ref pic, sit down with giant sketch pad, go to trace design on 1/2" MDF...

...and realize that I have tons of MDF in every thickness except 1/2". *headdesk*

Hi, I missed you~! : D

That's freakin' creepy that someone was handing out your picture. D: Was he just like... handing them out to passing people? Or was he advertising himself as a photographer or some other service? Buh, I hope you get to the bottom of it soon. .-.


Also, bad (but not unexpected) news, but I don't think my friend's Oktavia!Sayaka is gong to be done before Sakura-Con. .-. Partially because of funding (she had a school loan mishap a couple days ago) and partially because she hasn't got a single component of it finished. I'll still be bringing Homura and our photographer finished watching the series to familiarize himself with the characters.

Thanks, I hope so too. I kinda doubt I can really do anything about it, though. I mean, I don't think there would be any sort of watermark or contact info on the photo. /shrug

Hmmm, hoping to at least either 1. finish up my Fluttershy poncho or 2. begin work on Ultimate Madoka today! Yay for long weekends!

Hey, I missed you too! c:

Well, I'm not sure about the second guy, but the first guy was just sitting at a table with a bunch of cosplay photos spread out and was saying people could take any. I think he wanted to show off his photography (cause I know for sure he was the photographer) but perhaps going about it in... well, definitely going about it in the wrong way. I'm not too sure what his deal was, really. He didn't really give me much of a reason when I confronted him. As for the second guy, I'm still trying to get to the bottom of it, since it might have been another photographer's photo.

Aww, shame that Sayaka won't be done. I might have a Kyoko that can possibly shoot with us, though! Kind of a big maybe, so I can't say for sure.

I guess that's less creepy than I was imagining. .-. But still kind of creepy. Are they just like, single photos of various cospleyers or is it a compilation/collage of cosplayers on a single page?

I was trying to get my friend to go for Sakaya's school uniform, or at least her normal magical girl outfit, but I'm not sure if she'll do it. o:

Single photos of various cosplayers. I'm assuming it's a similar case with the other guy, but I'm waiting for more info.

Aww. Well, I guess we'll have to wait and see. I'm not sure if either of you are familiar with Taobao, but you could always try finding her something there if time and money are the biggest constraints, as things are pretty low-priced there but usually still nice quality.

Dang. That is creepy. 0_0 Hopefully you can get to the bottom of what he is doing with the pictures.

I think my brain really wants me to work on Chizuru. I had two dreams last night that were Hakuouki related. Blah. I might just use the suiting fabric I have for the haori...
