Cosplay photo sales exhibition
Have you ever heard of “Sales exhibition for Cosplay photos”? In Japan, the sales exhibitions for Cosplay photos are very popular among people who loves cosplayers. Basically the event holds at a small venue because the cosplayers organize the events on their own in most of the case. The benefit for attendees are they can meet and talk Cosplayers, take their photo and then purchase their photo data in DVD-ROM. For Cosplayers, they get a chance to sell their photos to their fans. Since they are closed events, some cosplayers shows too much….but it’s a different world I’m not in.
Japanese cosplayer funs are very enthusiastic about collecting the Cosplayer’s photo. In the DVD-ROM, you can enjoy some specific cosplayer photo on your own which are not on the internet. They think that they are special photos only for me….:). I think the DVD-ROM is a great idea for both cosplayers and people loves cosplayers. I know that cosplayers spent a lot of money and time to prepare for Cosplaying, as you can see on my past post “Questionnaire Result at Paris Manga 2013“.
When I take cosplay photos, I press a shutter more than 10-20 times for one angle because cosplayers show different expressions and the balance of lightning also varies every single time. After taking tons of photos, I select the best one I would like to show you. In the DVD-ROM, you can enjoy various types of Cosplayer’s expression. It’s not easy to show all of them on the internet. That’s why the DVD-ROM worth of buying it. As one of the cosplayers’ fan, you feel that you contribute her cosplays which is great moment for both of them.
I like taking Cosplayer’s photo because they enjoy cosplaying and try to play the character as much as possible. This is the precious moment for their life.:) I am happy to spend with them even a few minutes or hours.
