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 :)

International customers may wish to use my Society6 store instead - international shipping through storenvy (ie. from me in New Zealand) is really expensive, so check out Society6 if you’re outside NZ :)

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 :)
Model/costumer: meee
Photographer: also meeee
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. 

Preorders for the Cosplay New Zealand book are now CLOSED! Thanks to you guys, I exceeded my sales target, so I can keep all my internal organs instead of selling them for capital and that is pretty great :D Big thank you to everyone who bought a copy, and special thanks to all the cosplayers I’ve worked with over the years. I’m really honoured that you guys are happy to work with me, and I’m going to try really hard to make the next book even better than this one!

If any of you have feedback about the book (or the preorder process), either now or once you have the physical copies in your hands, please don’t hesitate to let me know. I want to make sure that my work is meeting the needs of the community as well as my own, and that I present cosplay as the art form that it is. I don’t ever want to only shoot with “famous” cosplayers, or whatever; that’s not what cosplay is about. You probably will see my friends in the books pretty often…that’s because I can bully them easier ;D But I also want to capture as broad an image of NZ cosplay as I can, and that means photographing new people all the time. I’m going to be traveling again for shoots this year and next, and would love to see some new faces! ESPECIALLY Southerners. Watch this space for announcements :D

And, finally - I still need to do the final sums on everything, but things are looking good money-wise…and that means that yes, I will be doing a paperback version of the book too. HOWEVER: this will not be available for some time! I intend to do quite a long preorder period for that one, and also hold stock for sale after the preorder period ends, so I will make some announcements later on regarding price, dates, and whether I’ll have a stall at Auckland Armageddon(!!!) or not. All details to be confirmed later! THANKS GUYS, PEACE

Final book preview - now into the last day of preorders! Orders will close at 10pm tonight, NZ time. Last chance! Hardcover versions of the book will never be available again! Get your copy at http://littlenoise.storenvy.com  :D :D

Couple more previews of the book - and a reminder that preorders close in FOUR DAYS! At this point, sales have not been fantastic, so this may be your last chance to get a copy of this book. There is no guarantee that I will do another run, and I WILL NOT be holding stock - what is ordered will be printed, and that’s it!

If you would like a book but don’t have the cash right now, please messge me and we can try to make arrangements. I don’t want anyone to miss out, but hardcover binding (not to mention the printing itself) is too expensive for me to print extra copies. Don’t risk missing out, preorder your copy now!
