Hello Everyone,

Yes, It's been a while. I have been busy with the holidays and at the same time looking for a job. Like many people in the United States and especially in Michigan I'm unemployed. Good news is that Manufacturing jobs are coming back to Michigan and since that's my field I feel that I will get a new job soon.

This year I plan on going to Shuto Con 2015, Jafax 20, and Youmacon 2015. As those cons get closer I will add info about what I will be doing at them. As always I have past photos that I plan on posting and I want to do more features. Please be patient on both.

I have been very excited about both the Blu Ray remake of the Sailor Moon series and I'm Love watching the Sailor Moon Crystal episodes that are continuing to be broadcast from Japan twice a month. If I have my info correct Sailor Moon Crystal will be moving on to the next arc of the Sailor Moon Manga series next month. The episodes will be moving on into the second season or Sailor Moon R of the Anime series. I'm curious as how well Sailor Moon Crystal will be following the Manga series and how different it will be from the Anime series. It's been interesting comparing Sailor Moon Crystal to the other series.

I now have a Smart Phone and I found an App for the NicoNico Japanese Website. I downloaded this App and was excited watching Act 13 of Sailor Moon Crystal through it. I already had an account on NicoNico so all I had to do was start the App, Log In, do a search for Sailor Moon Crystal Episode, and then watched the video of the episode. Make note that the download of this App and using it uses up a lot of data usage but seeing the episode was worth it!! :)

I have and watched my copy of the Blu Ray remake release of the 1st half of the 1st Season of the Original Sailor Moon series. I already have pre ordered my copy of the 2nd half of the Original series through Best Buy. I can't wait to get in the mail on February 10th!! :)

I hope that everyone's new year is going well. Stay tuned for the new photos that I will be posting in the future.

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 a few magnitudes better and higher classed than store bought costumes. 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.
