Photoshoot teaser from the shoot I did earlier today!

Photoshoot teaser from the shoot I did earlier today!

shock-tress:

Above picture belongs to starlightslk herself, in pic… but we’re unhappy about it, photogs in past have either been resentful, full credit taking, or just nasty, the people that come out of woodwork! omg  Fine, do it ourselves.
Testimonial For Starlightslk and my photos having appropriate copyrights all over: You photogs and models need to do this MORE…your pics, do what you want, ppl complain? then eh.
Recent problems with many stolen pics/without permissions,photo dump sites,ebay/etc).Like this one was just used all over.
-> And does not help when the photog rooms with us, takes our memory card and puts all our files on his pc to “review” when it’s our cam,card,etc. Even if he took the pics with our stuff(we all did favors liek that), does not in a million years mean he owns the pics or copyright anything(we have no pics of our other photog cosplayers unless groups and events,cons). Outright stolen sometimes or messed with and or deleted “accidentally”).
Sooooo, yeah , nuff said. Enjoy what there is.

so online rules? well…
     If the photo is THAT stained for you by watermarks,than I suggest supporting her hard times buy purchasing prints from her/my store.It took ME a second to notice them, and I know where I put them! My pics are same way, we live together, we deal together, some of us liek to share when certain things line up right.
    It’s effort to make an item(like Mami,Astaroth,etc), effort to get a shoot and represent, effort to share and make available, then effort to make sure dam dirty apes stay dam clean ponies. With all the DMCA/takedown/charges/and reimbursments/settlements, and degree in film weare aware of how it works too btw. Sometimes I don’t care, sometimes it’s a case.
Please (literally) see the bigger picture here, it’s worth it. After all it IS a preview set only… . .. I think I needed more watermarks there XD
most of you are so good about it, you have ethics on tumbls. So enjoy our works.

        Mami Tomoe by Starlightslk
World’s best if you ask me. I mean,look at her.

photog, oh ME! I got to all weekend!

Setting:Vermont, June 2014, 2 full days shooting,1 day scouting,3 towns.

We got sunburned, ate very well, and our team was quick on locations.
 Preview dedicated to supporters who funded for the purchased prop gun: the only part NOT made by starlightslk.They recieve a print,or 2,or depending.
We’ve been busy trying to find work, recover files,make prints, pickyness on 1000+ shots,etc.Sometimes sky had to be adjusted, or the grim colors adjusted for max effect.Otherwise nothing really had to be done,both kinda proud of that. Ribbon pic is her twitter share pic,she had little to use(prints!), but I think was cute. Sometimes some things just take awhile to get to for no good reason, Even my recent 4-5 photoshoots havent really been up!
     Mad talent eventually shown here.Finally up for sale here:

I’m so excited to finally be able to share this shoot with everyone it was amazing!!! *.* Thanks to those that helped me purchase the official Mami Tomoe Musket! A huge thanks to @shock-tress for finding the awesome location that fit my concept for this shoot even better that I ever could have hoped for & for being an amazing photographer!!! ❤️❤️❤️

Due to many requests individual prints will be available for sale shortly. The only ones that will be personalized will be the ones from my http://starlightslk.storenvy.com the rest will be shipped directly to you via the manufacturer.

I get messages on a regular basis from people who are scared of cosplaying, and it makes me so sad that there are people out there who really want to try cosplaying but are too afraid of getting internet hate to participate. That just ain’t cool.

Bullying is never okay, but unfortunately it’s a pretty frequent occurrence in the online world of fandom. And realistically, the bullies probably aren’t going anywhere. The internet makes it really easy for people to spread hate, and I don’t think there will ever be a day when it isn’t an issue in the cosplay community. (Depressing, I know, especially considering we’re all a bunch of weirdos pretending to be magical girls/ninjas/dudes with giant swords/elves/etc. In an ideal world, we’d all stick together, but unfortunately, it’s not an ideal world.)

When you see someone else being bullied, it can be easy to stand up for them - but when you’re the one receiving hate messages on Tumblr or someone is leaving cruel comments on your photos, it can be a lot harder. I’ve found that when it comes to dealing with hate you may get for your costumes, the best thing to do is let it go.

Don’t acknowledge it, don’t give it a second of your time, because it seriously does not matter. Seriously. Doesn’t matter. No, really, it doesn’t. Step back and look at the big picture. Does a message from some jerk on the internet who hates your nose or your weight or your fabric choice really affect your life? No. It doesn’t. There are so many awesome things to enjoy in life, ain’t nobody got time to waste on jerks like that.

Just don’t care what other people think. Someone thinks you make an ugly Sailor Moon? Who cares! You had a great time cosplaying her and you got to spend the whole day with your Sailor Scout group, and you’re really proud of the pictures you guys took together - so share those memories, post them all over your Tumblr and your Facebook, spam them everywhere! If that person doesn’t like your costume, that’s their problem. You keep on doin’ you.

It’s easier said than done; having self-confidence takes practice, but once you get there, it’s an insanely good feeling to know that their words can’t hurt you. Focus on having fun with your hobby, spending time running around as ninjas with your friends, and crying over your sewing machine the night before a con because your SnK jacket isn’t done and you still haven’t started on the straps and oh god how does 3DMG even work.

This got a lot longer than I intended, but tl;dr: Don’t let the haters stop you from sharing your artwork with other cosplayers and bonding with each other over this silly, ridiculous hobby of ours.
