The more things change, the more they stay the same. I have travelled to dozens of conventions in seven different countries; indeed, the cosplayers and locations are vastly different, but things are more or less the same. From a photographer’s point of view, you arrive around noon, roam to find people you know, then maybe start taking photos or just socialize. By evening, attendees wrap up and return to their respective accommodation, sometimes accompanied by a dinner group. This is not the case for US conventions.

For those of you who have just started out on your photographic journey and have purchased your first DSLR camera, congratulations!

Lots of thanks to all our contributors, who always help us to deliver quality content for our readers, and also to everyone who has already preordered the magazine. The second issue of Cosplay Gen has just been sent to the printers; and on October 21 will begin the worldwide distribution.

When picking out a wig to spike, it’s highly recommended you choose one with lots of volume. Wigs that have frizzed roots at the base have more “lift” and tend to have less gaps where you separate the hair. You also might have to add in extra wefts in advance so you have more fibers to work with. [..]
Our featured cosplayer of this week, Neni, comes from Germany. Noticeable is the wide variety of characters she chooses to cosplay, be it from anime, manga or games. Check out more of her works on her deviantART profile.
The first cosplay I ever did was Asuka Langley Shoryu of Neon Genesis Evangelion. I’d been a fan of her character for quite some time, and I decided that if I ever did cosplay, I wanted it to be Asuka. The first event I ever attended was Harumi. [..]
