When I make all of my cosplays, I put so much time and effort into them, that half of the time I cannot even see straight. I spend hours after hours, working, sculpting, sewing and figuring out the best poses to get these ready to where to conventions. Is this the right material? Does this pose make my butt look fat?
And while I put all of my effort into this hobby, in the end, it's all for fun.
But that fun is ruined when people go around accusing others of stealing, as I have been recently accused of.
I have been accused of stealing photos from Falling Feathers , who in reality is my good friend and photographer. I first did a photoshoot with her the very first time that I debuted Fran-- more than a year ago. I've gone on to do a Team Rocket photoshoot with her, and then finally, the Fran and Balthier photoshoot that we did with her this past Ikkicon-- a mere few weeks ago.
Having both her and I, and my boyfriend, working so hard, to be accused of stealing in the end is heartbreaking.
So, for the record, I never said that her artwork was mine. I credited it to her as Angelwing, whom I know her by best(aside from her real name). Fallingfeathers.net is merely her website name. I never said that they were mine, I said that they were hers-- taken and processed. I am the cosplayer. I made the costume, and I posed, but I did NOT make the photographs.
To be accused of this is the utmost horror-- and a motion that I tend to fix. Perhaps she herself can shed light on the atrocious behavior and accusations of this person accusing me.
I will never condone stealing of any form, ever, and that certainly includes cosplaying. I hope that the accuser has enough sense to listen to what I say, and hopefully what Angelwing says in the future, and let this thing be sorted out.
I am who I am, she is who she is. We are cosplayer and photographer, and that is all.
