Softcover run of Cosplay New Zealand is now available for preorder! If you’re attending Overload 2014, you can preorder your copy and collect it at the con at table E8 :)

NOTE: I do recommend preordering to guarantee you’ll get one - copies will be limited! I also have a VERY limited number of hardcover copies available now, ready to ship :)

Workin’ on my shooting-in-teeny-tiny-apartment skills - my lighting is getting a lot better, but definitely some kinks to work out! Had a lot of fun on this shoot, though :D

Starring:

Katie B as Harley Quinn

Sylver Thread Costumes as Batwoman

Tails’ Cosplay as Catwoman

Photograhy/editing by Little-Noise

Team Horker Meat cosplay (lol) as Ulfric Stormcloak and the Dragonborn, from Skyrim!

BUCKETS OF GRATITUDE to everyone who helped out! Flinging snow, tucking costume bits back in, helping models in and out of snow drifts…definitely a team effort, this shoot :)

Costume, model: Cubefrau Cosplay

Photographer, editing: meee

Big thanks to Alex and Saf for throwing around a bunch of snow, and to everyone else who helped out! The snow is real, not shooped - the weather was clear, we just had 2-4 people hurling snow at each other in the background. Art!!

Whee littlenoisephotography ‘s cosplay photobook arrived! It’s so gorgeous, seriously (I’m on the cover, how could it not be duh). The cosplayers are amazing, but the photography is so stunning, seriously, I’m in awe looking through it.

EASY, BREEZY, BEAUTIFUL - COVERGIRRRRL
So the book saga has finally come to a close, and the books are being distributed now :) Big, BIG blog post coming about the whole printing saga…it was not fun, but it has resulted in some gorgeous gorgeous books :)

I made a Nightwing costume in three days, and am really proud of it! But, I am having difficulty getting photos that I like; so here’s a quickie we shot in my living room today. Build notes coming soon, and also hopefully some more photos :)

Assisted by Jp, thanks babe!

Weary, slightly frustrated book update: the advance copies have arrived, and while the PAGES look great…the cover needs one last tweak. These advance copies are for my legal deposit so they are fine for this, but I will be getting one more advance copy just to check that my new cover template is a-ok before committing to the full run…and tbh, I am very glad I caught this mistake now!! I don’t expect any more problems once this is sorted (but then, who does) but due to the easter weekend and ANZAC weekend, there might be some more bloody delays. Sincere apologies everyone, here is a photo of the posters and candy and model prints to prove I haven’t dropped the ball completely! I guess first books are always meant to have teething problems, right? :) Thanks everyone for your patience, I’ll let y’all know as soon as I have some better news! Happy easter break, and I hope everyone’s doing some awesome creative stuff :D

Final book proof has arrived…and I just finished approving it for print!! Again, I’m sorry there have been some delays in printing - but I am sending the final file to the printer tonight (couldn’t resist tweaking one more image) and the whole run will commence asap :)

Estimate from the printer is that it’ll take about a week to print and bind everything, and then it’ll be shipped to me, and I will spend a few days cloistered in my apartment packing everything ready to ship out :D

Posters are printed and waiting for pickup (I ended up working all day today, so won’t be able to pick them up until Wednesday) and I have a whole lot of candy ready to be snuck into the parcels, too. Woo! Nearly there! Thank you so much for your patience everyone, I really appreciate it.
