Hi everyone! My name's Joana and I'm a Photographer and Cosplayer ♥

One of my big passions is Photography. I've always seen it as something that gives me freedom and the chance to show a part of myself to others. Photography has been my hobby and my friend for many years and I can't imagine my life without it. I'm currently in college studying professional Photography, so I can take this passion to a professional level.

I've been cosplaying since 2010, an hobby that has taken a huge part of my life. It has changed me completely and given me many things I didn't have. I would like to someday take this passion that I have for Cosplay to a professional level as well. I realise it's going to be hard, but I can't give up without trying!

Feel free to talk to me and leave a comment. Any feedback is always welcome!

Would you buy my cosplay prints? (Please Help!)

Journal Entry: Sat Feb 7, 2015, 10:12 AM
Hey guys!

I haven't written a journal in almost 2 years! Time flies so fast! I'm really sorry for not updating it and dA in general (though I never stopped uploading photos here); I know I've been lacking but I'll try to compensate you guys.

Today I'd like to ask you one thing: 


Would you buy my cosplay prints?


This is something I've been putting quite a lot of thought for a really long time, but to be honest, I always came to the conclusion that people simply wouldn't be interested in buying prints of me in a costume. Even so, this idea never really stopped floating around in my head.

As many of you know, I'm currently in college studying professional Photography, one of my lifelong dreams; however, as many of you know as well, college is extremely expensive. To make this dream happen I had to sacrifice many things, one of them being money. This wouldn't be possible without my family, who are helping me pay for my studies (thank you so much!). But, even with all the help, unfortunately the money for cosplay is low.

I'm not here to ask you to buy my prints just for the hell of it. I'm here to ask your help in making one of my cosplay dreams come true.


Nabooru by TheGothica


That dream is Nabooru from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Many of you will probably recognize this character. Soon after meeting Nabooru she became one of my favourite female characters of all time. She was the first character I truly loved within the Zelda world, as well as from the first Zelda game I've ever watched/played. I really adore this woman. 

Me and my boyfriend have a pretty big costume (each) coming up soon, and even if we already bought many things (fabrics mostly) there's still lots of stuff to be bought. We have saved and are spending all the money on those two costumes of two amazing characters we hope to be able to bring to life, and I could not be happier!

But with this, and college, I'm not sure how much money I will have left to make new costumes. There is Lotus and Seven from 999, those I will finish for sure. But I would really, really love to be Nabooru this Summer.

You're probably asking: But is this costume THAT expensive? The answer is no. But I'd love to make it the more accurate I can, and for that I need a front lace wig. For those who don't know, a front lace wig is a wig that allows you to have a natural hairline, and since Nabooru's hair is pulled back, this type of wig would be perfect. However, they are really expensive.

For that reason, I have been thinking about opening a store and sell cosplay prints. I also thought about cosplay commissions but I have no time available for that unfortunately, so prints is the next best option. All the money would go to wig expenses. If, for some reason, I was not able to get enough money to buy a front lace, I could always do one myself (though at the cost of me ruining everything), but I'd still need money for the base wig.

Prints would be between 5 to 10 euros each (haven't decided yet).

And this is basically it guys... Sorry for the giant wall of text. Please tell me what you think! And thank you SO MUCH for reading Heart
