For some of the great photos of the exact instant XD
A piece dedicated to one of the UK convention scene’s top photographers :)
oh dear XD clearly I was asking for trouble with that profile shot :P
This is going to require some special flavour of revenge. or a sequel.
MOTHERFUCKING ONE PIECE MOTHERFUCKERS
MY ONE WEAKNESS
AMVS SET TO POWER BALLADS
shit I really should see this show sometimes
YES YOU SHOULD OMG this is a really really good representation of like the first one and a half seasons or so
Liza, you are one of three reasons why I got into that
YO I WASN’T THE REASON YOU GOT INTO ONE PIECE?
I SHOULD BE ALL OF MY FRIENDS’ REASON TO GET INTO ONE PIECE
I’VE POSTED THIS AMV BEFORE AND I’M DOING IT AGAIN
I thought everyone had long forgotten about this XD Glad it’s still serving its original intent as a blunt weapon to beat people into watching One Piece with!
I made another Cosplay Music Video, have at ye with it.
Cosplay Cascade 3 - AmeCon 2012
Music: All Time Low - Under A Paper Moon
Filmed at: AmeCon 2012, Keele University
3D Cosplay - Autostereograms
No glasses needed! Two near-identical shots taken side by side, view by crossing your eyes until the two overlap - if this hurts try sitting further back or making the image smaller - it can take some practice but is awesome when it works!
Another shot of my Jace cosplay by the amazingly talented Nert
Female Jace Beleren - Magic the Gathering
Took me a little bit, but try to merge it so that there’s a third Fem!Jace in the middle and you’ll get it.
None of it’s planned in advance, I don’t even know which music I’ll use until I have everything on my desktop!
Many clips are just things people were doing as I turned up, if I spotted them doing it and figured I’ll film that! If it’s rubbish I delete, if it’s good I go show the people I just filmed and ask if it’s okay to keep - or if they’d like to do something else/more. It’s a delicate balance to keep between capturing things naturally and being damned creepy filming strangers though.
If I’ve just stopped them to ask for a photo I might also ask if it’s okay to film a short clip too - I describe it like posing for a photograph but with a tiny bit of motion - or I sometimes suggest something really simple to do for the camera and see what they make of it; like twirl on the spot, run in this direction looking around for bad guys, walk along here then turn around at the end, etc. I take a lot of inspiration from the immediate surroundings or any props they have on them because I don’t like dragging people away from what they were doing for long.
That said, more often I just shout DO COOL THINGS BECAUSE I’M FILMING, and then see what happens. It may take multiple attempts ;)
I made another video; it has more cosplayers in it.
More of a casual drive than the rollercoaster of the KitaCon one but was fun to make regardless!
Audio: Gorillaz - 19-2000 (Soulchild remix)
Convention: London MCM Expo ComicCon 21 (May 2012)
Announcement page: http://www.manylemons.co.uk/entries/cosplay-cascade-mcm-expo-21/
Because I have yet to share this through tumblr. Seriously, if you like to dance and you weren’t at Kitacon I’m afraid to say you missed out. But there is always next time! ;)
Cosplay Cascade - KitaCon 4 (by ManyLemons)
I’m at 2 mins 50-ish. le cringe.
eep! i’m in this! at 0:42, as Princess Garnet with my back to the camera with Eilidh as Rinoa and a lovely girl whose name I forgot to get as the other Princess Garnet and at 2:29 as Merrill with some of the fabulous Dragon Agers :3
Thanks to you both for being patient with me XD The clips came out great!
Sorry I only got your back in this one! I had a long shot of you used later on but switched it for one with more going on at the last minute T_T didn’t want to cut you out and I really liked the shot of Holly playing with your headpiece XD She goes by Kamiko on CosplayIsland if you’re still after her name!
==> Do the windy thing.
Photographer: Matthew Chan
One day I will stop getting Matt to take jumping photos of me. That day is not today. Nor was it a week ago.
Not gonna lie, mainly posting this up to stop Ria from bulling me to do so. I’m not your Tumblr jester, dammit! Well, actually I suppose since I posted this I am, sort of…but still!
Well, stay tuned for more of my derp-tastic face (and everything else) I guess. Still more evidence of KitaCon to emerge yet.
Psst that’s a warning to run while you still can. I wont mind, honest :x
That stupid whippy tail hood… I have bruises!! I’m gonna get you back so hard at Expo.
You look as brilliant as anyone could look flying through the air <3
