An Inappropriate Cosplay Photoshoot

#Cosplayers love to show off their work at photoshoots, but be wary if you get invited to one: #nudity is not #cosplay. A recent ad for a cosplay photoshoot asks for “sexy” and “nude” cosplay models to appear, along with a registration fees for both cosplayers & photographers.

First, let’s point out the obvious: being nude means that nothing is being worn. Being in costume means wearing a costume, not being nude. Second, being “sexy” is not what cosplay is about. Third, if you have to pay for a cosplay photoshoot, find one that doesn’t charge because there are plenty of amateur photographers out there that don’t charge fees.

Now, as for this particular photoshoot (that appears to be in the Philippines), this appears to be more of a money-making scheme and exploitation. Always remember: cosplay is not consent.
