I have been away from Deviant Art for a few months due to a lot of changes in my life. During the last year and a half I have been on a long and exhausting job search. Due to that I had to put my Cosplay Photography plans on hold. It finally looks like I have a stable job again. I work in the Manufacturing Field primarily as an Assembler and Quality Control Inspector. Over the years I have held jobs that led to the worlds first Liquid Crystal Displays (LCD's) and up to a year and a half ago I helped to assemble the worlds only Holographic Weapons Gun Site commonly known as an Eotech Gunsite. My current job is in the Automotive field where I help assemble Heat / Cold Dashboard modules or panels that go into the dashboard of cars. The place that I work at is a joint venture of two German companies, Hella Electronics and Behr. Since I live in the Detroit Metro Area it's not surprising that I have a job in the Automotive field.
What I bring to my Manufacturing Career I also bring to my Cosplay Photography Hobby. I have high attention to detail, respect others, and have a very strong curiosity about the World around me. I have been amazed as to the advances and growth of the Cosplay Culture. Believe it or not I still come across people that don't know what either Cosplay or Anime is.
At the end of this month I finally get to go to a Cosplay / Anime convention.
Youmacon 2015 will be here in the Detroit area soon and I'm very excited about it. As usual I will be taking photos of Cosplayers and I won't be focusing on a particular series this year. I'm going to see what people are cosplaying now and take photos of cosplayers of all different levels and abilities. I truly believe that a beginner Cosplayer and a High Level accomplished Cosplayer are the same. They both Love cosplay and give honor to the character that they are cosplaying.
This year at Youmacon I plan on meeting and getting autographs from a couple of Voice Actors. This is something that I usually don't do because I focus on and spend a lot of time taking photos and photoshoots. The voice actors (Actresses) that I want to meet are Cristina Vee who is the voice actress of Sailor Mars of the new English dub of the Blu Ray Sailor Moon series and the other is Robbie Daymond who is the voice actor of Tuxedo Mask in the same series.
The second half of Sailor Moon R is coming out on Blu Ray on October 27th. I already own the first half of Sailor Moon R and both parts of the first season of Sailor Moon. Many fans of my photography work know my great Love of the Sailor Moon series. So I'm looking forward to two people who have helped make the Blu Ray version of the Sailor Moon series possible. In the Limited Edition of the Blu Ray version of the Sailor Moon series their is a special booklet. I plan on having at the very least Cristina Vee sign both books. Sailor Mars is my favorite scout so when I meet Cristina I will tell her that Sailor Mars is my favorite scout and to thank her for her voice work for the character.
When I come back from Youmacon 2015 I do plan on sharing with my fans some of the photos that I will be taking. Please be patient though. I do have a new job now but both my time is limited due to working an Afternoon job and having a "Dial Up" XP computer. I still have some trouble getting onto Deviant Art due to having an old computer so that's why I haven't been on this page for the last few months. As I often say stay tuned. For my page watchers who are still watching my page many thanks for sticking around and to any new fans of mine thanks for visiting my page and liking my cosplay Photography work.
