1. Tell me and send me a link of your work if you use one of my stock images; Either on the actual image or as a comment here. (I really like seeing what you create!)

2. Credit me as the model.

3. The images are for art purposes ONLY.

4. If using my image outside of DeviantArt, send me a note BEFORE posting. I like to know and see that I am still being credited. Please also upload to image onto DeviantArt if possible.

5. Do not replace my head for the head of another person in a photomanipulation. I find it beyond disrespectful. (The reason for this rule is that I literally spend up to 40 hours making a costume (ie. the red dress), hours more setting up a shoot, shooting and then post-work on the images before uploading. When you put that much work into a photograph, and then have your head changed to someone else so that they can "wear such a beautiful gown"... no. Make your own.)

6. If you plan to use a part of a photomanipulation (ie. skirt etc), and not the whole model image, please check with me first, for reasons above. I will get back to you usually within 24 hours.

Book Covers/ Commercial works
I have recently been asked about book covers. There are one or two small things that I would like to clarify

1. All the same rules from above apply.
2. Credit must be given to me in the front of the book (on that little page with all the credits - you know the one).
3. If a photographer is stated to be used, you must also credit them.
3. If there is a hard copy of the book, please send me a copy via post (and my photographer if it is not myself). As I do not ask for $$ payment, this is what I would consider to be payment for having my image used for the general public (from around the world) to see.
4. Also to be clear from the get go - I pride my stock as being free to use for everyone who follows my rules. Because of this, I will not make any of my stocks exclusive for book covers.


New stock soon!

G'day everyone,

I know I have been a bit MIA lately- sorry, cosplay has been currently taking most of my free time. But I did have the honour of writing an article for project educate :) "stock can cosplay" reviewing the similarities and differences between the two art types. I will put the link here soon :)

EDIT: Here it is:
Cosplay vs. Stock - For the love of CostumesStock & Resources
Do you have a geeky side?
Do you love getting dressed up in costumes (especially when they relate to a favourite movie, comic, game or anime)?
Do you like having your photo taken in costume?
Then you are most likely to be aware of the term 'Cosplay'.
And if you are reading this journal, you are most likely know what 'Stock' photography is also.
But hey, let's break it down (because these two categories have a lot in common, but also, have some big differences as well).

AmenoKitarou - DreamOfDiscord
Cosplay is a derivative of two words, Costume Play - because that is exactly what it is. You dress up in a costume to look like a character from a popular culture reference such as movies, tv shows, games, anime, manga or comic books.
However, it is much, much more than that for a lot of cosplayers.
Many cosplayers pour countless hours, money, blood, sweat and

However, moving forward, there is a long weekend coming up this weekend and hopefully this virus I have now (I'm am writing this whilst I'm at the doctor's waiting for my appointment) would have passed. Then, I plan to do some stock- I'm trying to think of a theme of character for the type of costume I have planned- it looks a little like a friendly witch outfit... Or a stern old fashion head mistress- maybe from hogwarts?
what type of character would you like me to embody?

I love the poses that you are making here. I may be a bit behind to know but do you have any kung fu or martial arts poses?
