Event description

Description

With special guests Jennifer Rapkins Photography and Peekaboo Cosplay

Hey cosplay friends! Let's keep leveling up on more than just our crafting skills, and practice posing for photographs!

I held one of these events in the spring, and now it is time for the winter version. I've made a few changes, so it won't be exactly the same, hopefully it will be better! First change: it is on a weekend! The training will run from 2pm - 3:30pm, and photography from 3:30pm to 5:30pm.

I will be offering more training time, and one finished photo of your costume. I want to focus on posing, but I think that having a great photo is (a) an awesome memento and (b) something that everyone loved at the first event.

As before, I need a minimum of 20 people in attendance to hold this event. Your payment will be refunded if the event needs to be cancelled due to low participation.

FAQs

I don't have a cosplay! Can I come?

This training is geared towards wearing a costume, but it does not have to be a cosplay. It can be any kind of costume, such as steampunk, dieselpunk, rave wear, etc... You'll feel out of place if you don't have a costume at all.

I don't want to do the posing training, I just want to a picture! Is that OK?

That's awesome. Come join! (You still have to pay full price though.)

I want to practice posing, but I don't know if I'm ready for pictures yet. Is that OK?

Absolutely. The event is set up so you can do both, or just one or the other.

I'm feeling nervous. What do I do?

We will be creating a safe space for everyone! Because a bunch of you will be trying something that might feel new and scary, we want to make sure everone feels good. If you feel worried or unsafe for any reason, (before, after, or during the event) please let me know immediately.

How does the picture-taking work?

The photographer will have a booth set up in the studio with us. We'll be posing in front of mirrors to practice, then you can head over to the booth to take pictures! We will have model releases for you to sign - you can use these photos to promote your cosplay, but you can't sell them.

What if I can't come for the whole time?

That's okay. You can come a bit late and I can do some one-on-one training with you, or you can come at the beginning and leave after your pictures are done. You definitely don't need to stay the whole time.
