Hello Everyone,

I want to wish all of my friends and watchers who celebrate Easter a happy and healthy holiday. I'm taking this opportunity to catch everyone up on what I have been doing.

Unfortunately I was not able to go to Shuto Con 2015 in Lansing, Michigan this year due to lack of funds. I was really looking forward to going to this con again and take some wonderful photos to share with everyone. Some of the best photos that I have taken at this con have been at the Grand River boardwalk. If anyone has gone to Shuto Con 2015 please let me know in a comment on this journal entry how the con went. From what I heard they expanded the area that they used for the con.

I still plan on going to Jafax 20 in Grand Rapids, Michigan and Youmacon 2015 in Detroit, Michigan this year. Jafax this year is suppose to be in a new location so I'm curious as to how the con will work out. Also I hope to have some good locations to take cosplay photos. I'm going to miss the old location. The woods and fountain their were great spots to take photos at.

I just found out that the release date of the Blu Ray / DVD re dub of Sailor Moon R part 1 is coming out on July 14, 2015. Check out stores and websites to preorder your copy. I recently bought a Sailor Venus Fully pose able SHFiguarts figure at a Barnes and Noble book store. Sailor Venus is so cute and she even comes with her cat Artemis. I also bought a cute Sailor Mars Chibi figure.

Every now and then I will be posting cosplay photos that I have taken from past conventions. Today I posted two photos of Maka and Soul from the series Soul Eater. I have plenty of photos yet to share with all of you so stay tuned!!

A lot of my time has been spent helping to run a Guild on a website called Gaiaonline. When you go to the site it will probably seem kinda of cutesy and just for kids. This is far from the truth. You can make a profile page and interact with other people with similar interests. You get to create a avatar and earn Gaia Gold to buy things to update your avatar and do other things on the website. Their are a lot of social activities to do on this site. Art wise you can find anime art drawings and writing. One of the things that many people on Gaia do is join forum based Guild groups.

I happen to help run a forum based Guild called "Anime Conventions: The Global Connection Guild". In this Guild you can interact with other Guild Members who are interested in Cosplay, Anime, Manga, Conventions, and so much more. Like any other social website you need to create and account and a profile page.

Here is the Link to my Gaia Online Profile Page:  www.gaiaonline.com/profiles/sm…  

Feel free to check out my Profile page and their is a link on my page to the "Anime Conventions: The Global Connection Guild". A lot of my time over the last few months has been helping the Crew Members of this Guild update and make changes to make this Guild better and to be the place to be on Gaia Online. When you visit my Gaia Online profile page you will notice that the background of my profile is dedicated to my favorite Sailor Moon Scout Sailor Mars.

That's it for now.

Take Care,
Ron

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.
