Is cottagecore/fantasy-core a good influence in the cosplay community? It promotes regal, elegant looking styles like these and and they're fully dressed so there's no lewd angle. It also has a small overlap with the Lolita style that women like.

Same shiz different thread. Except now it’s the beginning of con season.

Nothing clever to add, just the usual shit about lifting this off another website and the formatting to get messed up.

>thinks posing like a scene from an anime is the same as posing for a real life photo
>will book multiple photographers for the same outfit on the same day for reasons???
>will post private conversations from (you) in their cosplay group chats
>will facetune any image you take
>will suddenly want to shoot with you if you have any form of clout from bigger cosplayers

While I still enjoy it, I mostly now just shoot for friends/less popular cosplayers. A few of us photographers actually do have our own group chats, and its pretty civil and we don't really shit talk other models, we actually hype eachother up. The cosplay chats i've seen though are pretty fucking vicious.

Any other photographers want to chime in on their experiences?

How was Holmat? Anything interesting happen?

Anyone keeping an eye on the cosplayblackbook IG for the latest drama?

Any future plans?
