January photoshoot

Thank you for joining us!

Theme: "Traditions"
Date: January 12th, Saturday
Time: Start at noon
Location: University of Washington
Meet up: HUB (student union building), lobby on floor above food court

Theme as always can be interpreted in different ways.

1. Traditional and old-fashioned clothing, such as:
- Kimono, qi pao, ao dai, etc.
- Steam punk fashion
- Lolita and similar fashions
- Medieval and historic costume

2. Myths, legends, fairytale, and storybook characters (Alice in Wonderland, etc.)

3. Old school anime or anime with a historical setting (Star Blazers, Nausicaa, Princess Mononoke, Rose of Versailles, Rurouni Kenshin, Godchild)

4. Characters who keep a tradition alive or embody an anachronistic viewpoint: practitioners of martial arts (kendo, etc.); Ouran cosplay and other "old money" campus series; Chinese amazons :P

I think the holiday party was more of Gasukan 2.5...since it wasn't actually a photoshoot. Pretty good turnout, though.
I hope sometime y'all will come up this way again, maybe to Edmonds in the spring. There's a good park by the beach there.

Maybe a college or community college campus? They usually have good landscaping and interesting buildings, and they've got plenty of shelter (January, everyone! Cold!). cpardo and I shot some photos at Bellevue Community College for Aki Matsuri in September, and they had some really cool structures:
http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=1255620
http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=1255623
There was more, lots of trees, a nice layout, etc.

Hmmm...if we were doing it up here, I'd suggest either Edmonds Community College or Lynnwood Heritage Park. The park has an old-fashioned trolley car that'd be great as a backdrop, as well as some cool sculpture and buildings, and a wooded area. I've always wanted to do a shoot there. But that's in Lynnwood again, and I'm not sure you guys want to come up here again so soon.

Someplace with brick buildings would be nice...

How about UW? I've only been there for one quarter but it's got a pretty decent campus.
We got a really awesome library [gotta be quiet though]:

the staircase would be nice for some traditional outfits:

odegaard has lots of bricks >< especially the towers =D

[they won't have those posters up, since it was for dawgdaze]
johnson hall has castle-like turrets [i think of cosplay photoshoots everytime i walk by there]

our stupid useless fountain:

I vote for UW. I toured the campus once and I remember thinking that it would be a good place for photoshoots. I also remember the sucky bowling alley.

I'm up for this.

Would anyone mind if I wore a mediveal dress as one of my costumes? It's not exactly anime, but it is traditional.

I'm also thinking of at least one more costume actually from anime.

I'm totally there. I don't know if I'll have anything new to wear, though, since I'm tied up with Sakura-Con stuff at the moment. I'll try pull something out, at least.

UW works for me. I again offer a carpool to any of those that need a ride to/from. I just won't be driving late so if it looks like the shoot is going to take longer then about 10pm I'd have to leave early. Bredward knows the truth, I should not drive later then 10.. I really shouldn't. >_<
And yay, I of course claim Alice from Alice in Wonderland. If Kumi does Lum at all I'll bring mine so we can finally do mirror image Lum (yes.. I'm a dork. :-) )
I want to bring another anime costume though I'm not sure what to bring. Would Misa be good? (I want to make sure my costumes fit with others so I'm not a stand alone. ^_- )

I'd have nothing to wear.

I did have a peasant outfit, but that was back in 9th grade (5 years ago, I definately wouldn't fit in it now) and it's practically been destroyed since then. I think I got rid of it.

Help. Ideas. Need. Please. (Alice in Wonderland would've been good. =P It's okay, I still loves you StrawberryLum!)
