If you haven’t heard, our very own Ambassador Ger Tysk of Chou-Wa Photography and Cosplay has been working on a book about cosplay called Breaking All The Rules: Cosplay and the Art of Self Expression. There is a special user submitted section in the book. We like Ger so much, we donated twice (thanks to Darkain Multimedia donating in addition to us), so we got two (2) slots to give away to two lucky winners! We love our fans and have decided to do a contest and give away those two slots. So how do you win?

In this week’s episode we cover a wide range of things especially near the end of the episode. This includes how to get a cosplayer to pose well, how to deal with bad backgrounds, how to save your photos properly for that high quality look and how to keep your editing under control.
