Greetings Everyone and Especially Sailor Moon Fans!!

I'm very excited. :) Yesterday I got the Blu Ray set of the 2nd half of the first season of Sailor Moon in the mail!! Everyone that knows me well knows that I'm a big fan of the series. :) <3  Here is a phrase that all "Moonies" know: "I'm The Pretty Guardian who fights for Love and for Justice. I'm Sailor Moon and in the name of the Moon I will Punish You."   

Sailor Moon has a Special Place in my heart and back in 2009 my Love of the series grew Strong again when I was able to take photos of all of the wonderful Sailor Scouts and Sailor Moon series characters. I have done a couple of tributes to the series already and this is a special shout out to Sailor Moon herself. Her selfless acts of kindness to everyone no matter who they are is a lesson to all of us to treat everyone the same and with respect. As I watch this wonderful original series again I get to see Usagi in action making friends of outcasts at her school who eventually become Sailor Scouts like herself who help and protect others. I can't wait for the other 4 seasons of the Sailor Moon series to come out in Blu Ray. :) Please celebrate with me Sailor Moon one of the most Loved Anime characters of all time. :) <3

Here is my Story:

I started to do Amateur Photography when I was 7 years old. Having just over 40 years of experience I have been able to take pictures of a wide variety of subjects over those years. Photographic categories have included travel, nature, history, geology, family, and people.

A new photographic category has recently gotten my attention that I'm very excited about. I have been taking pictures of Cosplayers since 2009. When I started going to Cosplay / Anime cons I was surprised by 3 things. Most Cosplayers wanted to have pictures taken of them and they would even pose at times for the pictures. I was also amazed at the number of Cosplay outfits which were mostly hand made.

Being born on Halloween I have always liked costumes in general. Cosplay outfits are costumes that are worn all year round. They are a tribute to the characters that the cosplayer portray and range from bought costumes, ones created from scratch, and professionally made ones. One thing that they all have in common is the cosplayers desire to dress up as one of their favorite characters. A dream came true when I combined my Love of Costumes and photography together into a new interest, Cosplay Photography!!

For the first time in my life other people including Cosplayers at the Cosplay / Anime conventions wanted to take pictures of me!! Like a lot of photographers I'm a bit shy about having pictures taken of me.

About 50 pictures were taken of me in my Star Trek Cosplay outfit at my first con. After that experience much of my shyness went away and I was definitely hooked on Cosplaying, taking pictures of Cosplayers, and going to the cons. You can check out photos taken of me in my cosplay outfits in "My Cosplays" album.

My first venture into the Cosplay Internet World was creating a ACParadise Page. It was a wonderful experience creating my profile their and showing off my Cosplay outfits. Then I created a Cosplay.com page. On that page I started to showcase and share my Cosplay photos. Now I have a brand new Facebook Photography page that showcases my Cosplay Photos, has special Photography features, and where I promote Cosplayers, Photographers, and Artists.

On this site I will showcase the photos that I have taken of Cosplayers and their outfits. My photography hobby also includes pictures that I take when I go on outings and often shed light on many of my interests. On this page I have two examples of my other photography work in my "Manistee" and Crystal Gallery Albums.

Check this DA page often to see new photos that I have taken of other cosplayers and even new ones of me!! You can follow my Cosplayer / Cosplay Photographer journey by reading my journals.
