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’m so excited to finally share these pictures!!! These exist thanks to those wonderful people that helped me purchase the official 1:1 Mami Rifle from Japan & Shoctress for being an amazing photog/location scout!!! ❤️❤️❤️😍

~♥ Mami’s 1:1 Musket Prop Replica Deboxing ♥~

I am ecstatic that I was able to secure a pre-order and actually get the Official Mami Tomoe 1:1 Musket that was released by Movic (it was a Movic and Animate exclusive). Due to some very generous friends & awesome followers who purchased a special print set back in February 2014 I was able to afford it! ♥

Special Thanks to:
Chazzfox
Shampoonyanko
Jonathan Wu
WonderPenguin
And to all those whom helped out but wish to remain anonymous ♥

I apologize for the quality of this video it was a very spur of the moment, despite considering doing it for months, it was a split-second decision right before we went out to shoot because we wanted to record my reaction opening the musket and seeing it for the first time. Unfortunately, I forgot my lav microphone at home and the video was over-exposed because it was very difficult to check the playback due to it being a super-bright day. (plus the fact I was wearing contacts which usually messes with my vision anyway)

Either way I hope you enjoy watching this video as much as I did making it! Also I’ll be releasing new photo set from this multi-day mega-shoot shortly! Look forward to it! ^_~♥

A sneak preview of this weekend’s multi-location photoshoot!

(Day 1; location 2)

I’m offering 2 special cosplay print sets to help me pay for this drool-worthy 1:1 scale Mami Rifle to go with my cosplay! (I struggle with making props & would love to have the official Musket to go with my cosplay & match my RAH Mami figure too!)

Buying this super special exclusive print set helps me pay for it. I have till February 9th to pay for the frikin sweet pre-order I have on the musket but since I’ve been unemployed it’s not in my normal budget. So this is where you come in! By buying this print set you are helping me pay for that sweet sweet pre-order! ^_^

This special set consists of Four(4) prints of my Mami cosplay: one(1) Mami from Katsucon 2011(as seen above), one(1) of Mami in her Mitakihara school uniform (TBD), & two(2) exclusive prints of me as Mami with the Rifle (both to be taken during a special photoshoot once I get the rifle sometime after PAX East 2013).

I will be autographing these so if you would like them personalized please include a note.

Please Note that Pre-Orders will be closing on February 9th for these sets!

A little preview from my photoshoot today with EnchantedCupcake <3

The Mami Tomoe inspired box I decorated. ^_^ Points of interest: I used 1 of my spare soul gem casts, the center of the top is gold-leafed, I used a dark brown stain &amp; golden stain for the main parts (in keeping with Mami&#8217;s color pallet). (Better pics to come!)

pumpkin0kitten asked:

where did you get the soul gem from (besides kyuubey)

I initially bought it from HLJ on pre-order but unfortunately they were immediately sold-out/discontinued. :(

Since they were sold randomly I ended-up with extras & I have all my extras up for sale on my Storenvy. ^_~

This bitty shelf is still in progress, right now it has my larger Sailor Moon figures/doll &amp; the rest of my Madoka Magica figures/gashapons.
