Hello Canadian cosplayers! I have a proposal for GTA folks, particularly anyone who happens to have generic medieval-era costumes - i.e. not from an existing series.
Here's the gist of it: I am a local author trying to put together some live action trailers for my upcoming books. The first book, scheduled for release this fall, is the first in an epic fantasy trilogy. I have a director, an editor, and a composer, and the director's getting his hands on other necessary things such as equipment and sets.
What I need is costumes, and possibly actors. I've tried contacting a couple other outlets - such as attempting to get hold of the local branch of the SCA - to no avail, so I'm turning to the cosplay community because I know there's some seriously talented sew-ers... costumers... tailors? out there. (Obviously I'm sewing-challenged myself.) The costumes need to be original. It's a standard medieval Europe type setting, possibly some other assorted costumes needed as well, though I'll know more for certain what we're looking for when I get the storyboards from my director.
Anyway, if anyone out there can help me out, I would really appreciate it! Please let me know and I'd be happy to give more details. If you can loan out some costumes - or yourself in them! - for a day or two shoot, please e-mail me at Jinx@side7.com
. I'm hoping to be able to shoot sometime in the next couple months, but again, that's more up to the crew than me.
Thanks for reading!
