Long time no posting! I finished this costume back in June for Akiba-Con in Auckland, and me and my partner won first place :D This costume is definitely one of my favourites, and I had to opportunity to shoot in Poland with Studio Zahora which was even better! I love these photos so much <3 <3 <3

Tunic is pleather and silk with worbla used to create the gold trim, antlers are worbla over foam, daggers are urethane resin and took a ridiculous amount of time to finish :|

Model, costume, makeup, props: :iconstatic-sidhe:

Hi, awesome work you have done. Nice job with the cosplay book. Great to see people making the effort in NZ.

I'm a hobbyist photographer based in Wellington & Auckland. 
I'm really interested in cosplay photography. Could you point me in any directions for collaborating with NZ cosplayers?

Hi Dylan! Thanks :D I'd check out the CNZ facebook group and introduce yourself there. A lot of photographers post and make a general inquiry about shoots and who's interested, with mixed results, but I'd recommend asking individuals directly as well. A lot of the time people seem respond well to a general call but not actually follow through, I think just because most of us are super disorganised! You'll have more luck asking people directly :) There are quite a lot of cosplayers in Welly, and HEAPS in Aucks, so start with the fb group and check out the cosplay new zealand tag on tumblr as well. I spam that tag a lot though, so apologies in might have to do some sifting through all my crap! But yeah, basically just ask people :P Just a heads up though, cosplayers are usually NOT models, and very frequently need a lot of direction. Bear that in mind, or you might end up pretty frustrated (I don't know what you're used to - ignore if not applicable).
