Hey Everyone!

Today, I am officially announcing my Third Annual Christmas Photography Contest! I started this contest 3 years ago to get to know more people and had no idea that this contest would become so popular! This year, I am going to do something a little different. I decided to add a category for all of my cosplay friends!

There will be 2 categories that you can submit to. The 2 categories are: Christmas Themed and Christmas Cosplay!

Category: Christmas Themed
– Christmas Themed pertains to any photo of Christmas Trees, decorations, food (cookies and such), snow, lights, etc.
– You can only submit a photo that belongs to you.
– Nothing inappropriate such as nudity.

Category: Christmas Cosplay
– For the first time, I am allowing people to submit photos of their Christmas Themed Cosplay. This also means any cosplay that you have worn (that isn’t Christmas themed) but had a Christmas photo shoot.
– If you are going to be submitting a photo of yourself that a photographer took of you, you must get the permission of the photographer before submitting. Also, please send the name of the photographer with your submission.
– Nothing inappropriate such as nudity.

Submission Rules:
– When submitting your photo, please include your NAME, EMAIL, and PHOTO TITLE.
– You can only submit ONE photo to ONE category.

Prize:

Assassins Creed – Gauntlets

I got my Assassins Creed Gauntlets from GameStop finally. They’ve been on Backorder for so LONG!

Left – Blades in place
Right – Blades unhatched

…The blades are connected to a spring so they fly out after you hit that button at the bottom. The blades are made out of rubber so they are con approved.

I’m going to be wearing these for my AC cosplay for Katsucon 2013!

I love them so much!

The Legend of Zelda

Hi Everyone!

“The Legend of Zelda” is my favorite Nintendo franchise game series of all time. It was the first game I owned on the Nintendo! When “The Ocarina of Time” came out on the Nintendo 64, it consumed my life for hours and really for years. I still play my Nintendo 64 just because of that game.

These cosplayers were dressed as Link, the hero of the story, and the girl in the middle was dressed as the faithful, yet seriously annoying, fairy, Navi! (Who I seriously adore and am still pissed that “Majora’s Mask” blew it with dropping the Navi story – even though that was why the game was made, right?)

What made these cosplayers Rock was the fact that they really got into their characters.

Please see video below. Beware! You may laugh yourself to Death!

Princess Tutu

Hi Everyone!!!

Princess Tutu follows Ahiru, a duck who was transformed into a young girl, and takes ballet at a private school.

The story is very complex for a “Magical Girl” based anime and I don’t want to ruin the plot for anyone so I will leave it at that.

These cosplayers were amazing at Katsucon. They actually knew ballet which made them so much more believable as ballerinas.

Hope you enjoy!

Have a great day!

Final Fantasy IX

Hi Everyone!

These amazing cosplayers are based on the video game Final Fantasy IX.

Final Fantasy IX’s plot centers on a war between many nations. Zidane Tribal, a thief, joins with a group of amazing people to defeat Queen Brahne of Alexandria, the one responsible for beginning the war. The plot shifts, however, when the characters realize that Brahne is working with an even more threatening person called Kuja.

Kuja is the man standing in the back. He is one evil dude.

I hope you enjoy! Have a great day!

Hi Everyone!

Here is an amazing Cosplayer that I saw at Katsucon. Forgive me but I don’t know what anime this is from. If you know, please comment below and I’ll update the information to reflect it!

The extraordinary details of this dress were outstanding. I was truly impressed with the craftsmanship.

Have a great day!

Real Steel

Hi Everyone!

Now that I have posted all of my photos from Katsucon, I’ll be going through each one to pick my favorites and feature them here.

I believe, please correct me if I’m wrong, that this robot is from Real Steel. I spoke with the cosplayer about how much the suit weighed and he said over 40 pounds.

Please enjoy. If you know who this cosplayer is, make sure to comment so I can credit him for his amazing work!

Have a great day!
