Ciri 03 by static-sidhe
Ciri 03
Made by me, for the Witcher cosplay competition - I spent about three months on this costume, and got a lot of practice sewing with leather! I've seen other Ciri cosplayers complaining about the corset, and yeah...it is the worst. Too long to sit down in, and really not comfortable.

I made the entire costume, except the gloves - I bought a pair and modified them. The sword is worbla, PVC foam, wooden doweling and LOTS of filler. I'd like to make this again at some point; I learned a lot making it and I think I could do a better job now.

The scabbard is something I'm really proud of - I dyed the leather and topstitched in the detailing, and it's wrapped over a foam and worbla base. It looks really great, and I'm very pleased with how it came out :)

Harley Quinn 01 by static-sidhe
Harley Quinn 01
Shot in Wellington, August 2014. We set up my gear in Tails' living room, and it was a very tight squeeze! Fun shoot, but we had a number of technical problems...biggest one being me being in costume as well, so not comfortable and not able to control things as much as I'd have liked.

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?

Thanks
Dylan

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 advance...you 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).
