welcome to my fanclub's night by shiroin welcome to my fanclub's night by shiroin
even though i am from taiwan, you almost never see me post photos from taiwanese convention. apart from me usually not being here, its because i often just go for the weekend, and take a bunch of crap that i dare not to show the world.

but year after year, there always seem to be one photo from those weekends that i really like.

just one... sometimes perhaps two.

the photo is usually very eccentric, to the degree that i wouldn't even categorize as a cosplay photo...

and almost always spontaneous... one shot completely without creation in mind... sometimes a test shot for exposure, and sometimes just a random shot to document the wall of people with cameras here.

this is one of them.

i am seriously at loss of words to describe how much i love this photograph.

she had such a great attitude in this photo. at first i thought it was just her natural presence, but that didn't seem to be the case when i saw other photographs of her in the same costume.

maybe it was just that split second.

that very second, she denied opportunities for dozen others, and entrusted me with just one shot.

i hope i delivered.


--------------------------------------------------------------------


i've held onto this photograph for quite a few days now. and it was only until recently that i showed it to the cosplayer.

i've been rather hesitant, or should i say selfish, of posting this on public domain.

the reason is perhaps that i feel the world would much rather see mundane photographs of cosplayers as long as it is associated with a pretty face; my reservation comes from the doubt that viewer will not get the same satisfaction as me from this photograph.

maybe i am overthinking once again...

hope you enjoy this as much as i do.


as for the title.... i'm pretty damn bad at it.

but it kinda echoed the macross frontier song title 'welcome to my fan club's night' since you can depict the wall of people as fans and the photograph seem to be taken at night.

oh i am cheesy.


also i have 9.5hrs before i have to leave for the airport, and i havn't packed or slept.

Just letting you know that I really do love this photograph. Great shot..it has a lot of feeling, I don't know what's up with it, but it's great. And like you said, there's definitely attitude. I hope the cosplayer liked it!
