London MCM Expo 21 Gallery


Another Expo, the first one I got to experiment on with the steadicam, unfortunately also the one interrupted by another event double booking the entirety of the useful outdoor area, sigh. Dragging people to calmer areas (quite the walk!) took an annoying amount of time and I didn’t get to catch remotely the number of people I was hoping to. Still, made the most of it and hopefully got some good footage. Won’t find out until I check of course, but first come PHOTOS!

Kinda slacked on the photo front to accommodate videoings, outside of the masquerade at least, so apologies for sparseness. I’m hoping whatever I churn together on a timeline will make up for it! This is mostly due to the outside area being offlimits nearly the entire weekend, inside kinda sucks, the loss of space meant everything was packed tight, the weather didn’t help, and I pretty much had to drag people down the entire other end of the ExCeL to find space.. Even doing it every waking hour of the day before the masquerade I only got a fraction of the people I usually do.. Apparently the tree garden was opened up late on Saturday but by then I’d considered it a writeoff and patrolled the other end, and Sunday I only get a few hours of expo time between doors open and masq start T_T Normal photography service should resume next event, as long as EuroCosplay doesn’t keep me busy anyway!

As always, if you spot photos of yourself and want nicer copies, throw the NertCam number at me in private via whatever means you wish! Use ’em as you will, uploading to whatever social media of your choice is perfectly fine, credit’s not a requirement as long as they’re photos of yourself.

I’ve also set up something of a Facebook page now, I’ll be uploading some of the highlight photos from each event there as well as here so they can be tagged and be all web2.0 and I can pretend I’m popular! XD

So throw all your love and likes at: ManyLemons on Facebook

Updates can also be found on some other social networky thing called Twitter over at ManyLemonsUK

HyperJapan 2012 Gallery


First event of the new year for me! HyperJapan returns for its third outing in an even larger venue and appears to have smacked its queuing problems on the head from last year, the event is only improving and this year was host to the UK qualifiers for both the European Cosplay Gathering, and – for the first time ever – World Cosplay Summit. The UK is finally on the WCS map!

Congratulations to our winners for both!

Lex and Sands are our representatives for the 2012 World Cosplay Summit with their excellent Vampire Hunter D (Amano version) costumes and performance, and will be attending the finals in Japan.

Yuka and Dahlia will be representing us at the 2012 European Cosplay Gathering with their costumes and performance from Final Fantasy XIII, as with Nomes with her Son Goku from Dragonball Z (which sadly I missed seeing!) at the finals held in France.

Other prizes went to contestants for: Judges’ Choice, Best Junior, Best Individual, 4th place, and 3rd place.

Thanks to everyone at Kita, had a good time.  Especially good to learn from/annoy/steal photos from all the photographers I usually only see fleetingly at expo XD

Will write more later, so, so busy -_-  8000 photos WHAT THE HELL

MinamiCon 17 Upcoming…

Less than a week to go!

Praying some deliveries arrive in time, this should be interesting :P

This is of course official notice to all attending cosplayers to ensure they should accidentally or purposefully get in front of my lens at some point.

Also, turning up early?

Going to be looking for something to do at, say, 5pm on the Friday?

WELL THEN, GUESS YOU’LL BE COMING TO MY PANEL, WON’T YOU?

Cosplay Photography, A Beginner’s Guide. Last year was all for cosplayers wanting to get some posing tips, this time it’s for those of us behind the magical shutter button!

What’s that?

NOT SATISFIED?

NOT A SUFFICIENT QUANTITY OF LEMONS FOR YOU?

Saturday 10-12  and Sunday 10-11:30 I’ll be chained into slave labour in the photo studio room so you can come along to point, laugh, and stand in front of the screen. I’ll probably, like, take pictures or something.

So there.
