Dear readers and followers, here is an amazing article about Cosplay Photography written by Pugoffka-sama and published in Cosplay GEN#07. Unfortunately an error has slipped through (the correlation between the text and some images) and we decided to correct and publish the article online for our readers as soon as possible. We're very sorry for this situation and many thanks for your understanding and support. Have a great reading!…

About Cosplay Gen

Cosplay Gen is a collectible magazine (due to its book-like appearance), published twice a year. It is entirely non-profit, self-financed and contains no advertising, therefore its purchasing contributes directly to the next issue.

Cosplay Gen is an independent magazine (no ADS) focused on the worldwide promoting of cosplayers and of various Japanese and Asian fashion trends. We idolize cosplayers from around the world and we cherish their amazing work by publishing extended interviews; reviews from various cosplay events; articles centered on cosplay photography, cosplay trends, cutting edge Japanese pop culture.

It’s a project born out of our deep love for the cosplay phenomenon and for Japanese contemporary fashion culture, resulting from the continuous need to highlight, recognize and celebrate such tremendous creativity. We consider that a good project is always a useful one, regardless of many other means to accomplish this purpose. From our point of view there are always new and exciting trends, metamorphoses and mutations. Therefore, a strong collaboration with the best of contributors is our aim, bringing forth such materials to a very heterogeneous, enthusiastic and playful readership.



We receive hundreds of submissions every week to the Cosplay Gen group, for which we'd like to thank you guys, we always enjoy seeing your cosplay photos. Regarding these photos, unfortunately, not all of them get to be accepted. They are not ignored, as some members tend to believe; we simply choose to not decline them as some might get offended by this action. That doesn’t mean in the least that we ignore or disrespect those who submit their photos to our group. We carefully check each and every submitted photo, and we are attempting to preserve a high quality of the content, as we are also doing with the printed magazine. This action has as sole purpose to encourage those who submit photos to improve themselves, to become better cosplayers, to “compete” with the others and especially with themselves and ultimately submit better works. The selection is not made by only one member, but by the core team of Cosplay Gen (editor-in-chief, coordinating editor, and publisher), because we truly want to keep the standards high. We don’t see this as a proof of arrogance or lack of respect, but on the contrary. We appreciate everyone’s hard work and passion for cosplay, and we hope you’ll keep submitting your work on Cosplay Gen group.

Also, starting the upcoming issue, we will launch a brand new column, entirely dedicated to our friends where everyone can submit their photos without any sort of restriction.

We truly hope you understand our reasons.

Cosplay Gen team

I was actually expecting to be blocked because of my persistence a month back. Then I gave up as honestly there's too many awesome people out here. So I appreciate the time that was taken, to request my artwork into the gallery.

Thank you really... And no worries
I will not hound you guys further (for now) :heart: :XD:

Thank you for accepting me into the group. <3
If it's not too much trouble, could you take a look through my gallery at my Fem!Kobra Kid, Lady Loki and Seras Victoria cosplays.
I know it seems strange it's just that I'm too nervous to try and submit them.
Thank you for your time. :)
