Cosmode Posing Tips

Creating a cosplay is challenging enough as it is.
It takes time, effort, and practice to get the job done but when it finally is complete the feeling of stepping out to reveal the fruits of your labor is exhilarating! Then someone approaches with a question that stops many in their tracks, especially the unprepared: “May I take your picture?”

Having a few good poses up your sleeve always helps and if you’re drawing a blank the Japanese magazine Cosmode has you covered! Here are some posing tips and tricks generously shared by cosplayer Firecloak (aka May Guo) from the Cosmode magazine app in their February 2017 and April 2017 issues. The app is available via iOS (possibly for Android as well but this remains unconfirmed) so be sure to show your support for their magazine buying issues via their app!


DnD Eevee-lutions

Pokemon meets Dungeons and Dragons in this epic crossover!
Artist and Cosplayer SunsetDragon created these beautifully designed DnD class costumes inspired by the various evolutions of the pokemon Eevee.Free for cosplay use, all she asks is that you submit a photo of yourself in costume to her and link to her page. My favorite is the Umbreon Theif!

Eevee Monk
Flareon Barbarian
Vaporeon Mage

Here is a small run down of the kind of content my readers seem to enjoy the most!

Attack on Titan with Haus Of Concernicus

I love cosplay photography.
Sometimes I get to hop behind the camera at conventions and take a few photo shoots with awesome people but that usually doesn’t happen unless I actually have someone to cover my Artist Alley table for me or the rare chance that I am not working a table at that convention.  This was one of the latter moments and I had the awesome chance to work with Haus of Concernicus! Here are a few favorite shots we took a couple of years back at Oni Con 2013. I look forward to working with them again in the future. ^_^

Genderbent FFVII: Cloud & Sephiroth

Cloud and Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII are some of the most recognizable video game characters around. 
Have a couple of hot asian girls gender bend this iconic pair and you’ve got a recipe for success! I had the opportunity last year at Kawaii Kon 2014 to hold a photo shoot with my friends who executed these cosplays splendidly! Here are a few of my favorites form our shoot.
