Ella Koon In Sexy Cosplay Outfit

Ella Koon (官恩娜) had her first taste of Cosplay today at an event to promote the Xbox game Lost Odyssey, where she was joined by Japanese model 木村乃. The two ladies dressed up as characters from the role playing game, showing off their cleavage in some tight corset dresses.

Ella Koon as CosPlayAsked if she felt that the outfit was too sexy, Ella said that she felt the dress was quite conservative and her 34D figure is actually only the same as many other girls. She revealed that she quite enjoyed her Cosplay debut, but said that she did not have the figure to carry off the dress that the other model was wearing.

Ella later said that the costume was rather uncomfortable and she had to adjust herself through the performance. She added that she had taken precautions to avoid revealing herself accidentally on the stage.

Shibata Yuna

Her pictures have been posted all over various cosplay/anime related websites since
almost 3 years ago, yet nobody seems to have a clue who she really is. Somebody pointed out her name might be Shibata Yuna, according to some Chinese site that had her pictures up.

Starting Cosplay Photography

This article is for those who has been in photography before, and want to take next step as cosplay photographer.

As starting point, go to a con (cosplay conference). Cons are the best place to start cosplay photography as they have a ton of cosplayers. most cosplayers go to cons to get their pictures taken, so this means you have a ton of willing models. Depending on the scenery of the con, you might be able to get some amazing shots.

Be polite, ask before you shoot, don't gank another photographers subject matter until they are done and you'll be on your way.

Most of the shots of cosplayers at cons are snapshots taken in hallways. Although most people will give you 3-5 minutes, it's polite to only take 4-5 shots. They're dashing from panel to dealers room and eating pocky and hitting people with yaoi paddles so getting a more involved shoot from a complete stranger is a lot harder to get - if that's the sort of thing you're interested in doing with cosplay photography.

If you have friends who cosplay and would be willing to do some shoots for you, that's always an option. and if you cosplay too you could do some self-portraits.

Just put in mind that there's no 'wrong' way to photograph cosplay (except perhaps as a fetish/freak hobby or with lots of the upskirt stuff that makes costume secondary).
