WWCPJ


Welcome to the official page for the Worldwide Cosplayer Photo Journey!!!
The first World Wide Cosplayer Photo journey 2010 - 2011 has officially ended. It was a great 1 year and 7 different countries. Scroll down if you're curious about the project!


*********************************************************************


To make keeping up with the status of this project easy, all the posts and updates will be consolidated here.

 

For people who are new to this project, scroll down to understand this project.

For those who already know, this is the page for you to keep up with the status of the project. I'm still trying to think of ways to make this project more interactive and easy to handle so please bear with me here and continue to support this project T_T Feel free to comment here and let me know what you think!

Below are links to various blog entries that updates the status of the project.

What is WWCPJ?:
I'm sure we've all received chain mails before. This project is something similar but with more fun and minimal maliciousness.


Obviously I’m not gonna send my digital camera out, it is for demo purpose only XD 
 
I’ll start by sending out a snail mail (yes, you heard that right) with a disposable camera and scarf to a foreign cosplayer (meaning, someone outside Singapore).

Then the cosplayer will take a photo of herself/himself/costumes/event/room/figurine collections/ props etc,  write/decorate his/her well wishes for 2011 on the scarf and then send it to ANOTHER cosplayer in either another State or Country.
This snail mail link will go on and on until either

1) camera runs out of negatives/battery
2) 2 weeks before Christmas 2010.

The last person will send it back to me and I will post everything here.



Objectives of this project:
  • To come together as a global community to give our most sincere well wishes for the year ahead
  • To promote and encourage intercontinental interactions between cosplayers
  • To promote cross cultural harmony and understanding
  • To inject fun and excitement into our lifes!

Rules & Guideline  for participants:

  1. The mail can stay with any one person for a maximum of 5 days. Meaning, you must take a photo, doodle/decorate the scarf and send it out within 5 days!  This is so that as much cosplayers can be involved in the project as possible within the timeframe=)
  2. Every participant is restricted to only ONE PHOTO. To allow as many cosplayers to be involved as possible, please leave the negatives for the people after you =)
  3. The person you send your article to must NOT be in the same geographic location as you are. They must either be from a different country or state.
  4. Participants who are selected, upon receiving the article (with the disposable camera and scarf) MUST EMAIL ME (elpheal (a) Gmail.com) with the following information so I can update the blogloc for the article =).

My hats off to you for coming up with this idea. I really think that this is a good way of gathering people around the world who share a similar passion.

I wonder... since only four people have been selected so far, and it's already mid-October, will the project continue after Christmas? It's kinda sad that even though so many people are eager to participate in the project, only a few have actually been able to.

polence said…
I'm in!XD This is a great idea. Hopefully I get selected XD And hope it's during April for Sakura Con :P

Just an idea: I would really like this project to continue. If ever I will get in it, I might just put a new disposable camera, send the old one back to Kaika. Dry clean the scarf and/or (if it is full already) send it back to her and put a new scarf (maybe a clone of the scrarf if I can find it.) And start all over again, until that one gets full, then send it back to Kaika.^_^

Hi Kaika!
If this project is still active, I live in Utah USA and only Cosplay as Miku. I am planning on filming my first cosplay pv in March. If the scarf is still floating around by then, I'd be happy to let it cameo in the pv. XD
May I also say that your JBF PV inspired me to do cosplay pvs.
