Quality Control your Social Media Feed

We’ve all gone online to look at someone’s work or got a notification to say your favourite person has posted a new photo and it’s a fantastic piece of work. There has been a time when I’ve uploaded work on my own social media pages which haven’t been to the standard I wished it was. 

This has nothing to do with the cosplayer in the photo but more how I’ve edited it, the photo is blurry, pose the cosplayer now looks odd, the colours or just doesn’t fit with other photos in the set. 

In the past I have ignored my gut and posted photos I later think to myself I should have a better quality control on my feed, cause I have to remember that my social media feed and website posts I post represent not only my work but the best part of my work which I want to show off. If a potential client who’s undecided about working with me, sees work which are below my standards, that might turn away and look elsewhere. Or stops attracting more people to follow more of my social feed if I don’t keep a good or high standard of output work. 

I do try and keep my main feed on Instagram photos of cosplays or food I’ve taken and have recently moved my “silly” selfies to either into my Instagram stories or Twitter.

I don’t expect everyone whom I have taken photos of will share my photos. Cause are going through the same quality control and looking for the best photo or pose to show off their work.

I think we’ve all been guilty of uploading photos to social media because it’s the only photo you got back of your cosplay and just wanted to show off your cosplay or you get back photos which aren’t too your liking. But I say, if you’re proud of your cosplay, don’t upload photos which are below your quality of standard.

For cosplayers, don’t be afraid of taking and uploading photos from your camera phone, the quality of modern camera phones are improving all the time and also you get to control what photo you want there and then, no waiting for the photographer to send you photos. 

Also if you didn’t get photos back from a comic con event or don’t like the aesthetic of the comic con environment, why not set up a location shoot with your photographer or cosplayer. This may involve money but talk to your photographer or cosplayer to either discuss rates or agree if can be TFP. Just make sure before a single photo is taken, what goals both are looking to get from the photoshoot. 

Make sure you check what you upload onto social media is what you want to represent yourself. It’s very hard to take something back if it can be misinterpreted or cause offence. Things can be screenshot and spread across the internet very quickly in a “cancel culture” we now live in.

Being picky about what goes into your social media feed isn’t a bad thing.

Zhongli’s  planet befall From Genshin Impact / Cosplayer treejumperfinny / Ohayocon. (Columbus, OH) 2023 A friend of mine (keliacos) jokingly said they would be the pillar, and I said I think it would be hilarious to be the meteor. I haven’t seen anyone do the meteor before, and really wanted to make a large cosplay. My other friend (necropantz) and I always talk about being inanimate objects. It’s funny to me to see shapes and things walking around. I plan on doing more in the future! I have seen lots of different tutorials on foam before, but most of them were for fursuits and upholstery. There weren’t any tutorials on how to make a modular cube out of foam, so I had to sketch my ideas before hand. Thankfully since it was a very simple shape it was easy to make a small model out of cardboard. It was quite the process, but extremely fun! The only other challenge is getting the Velcro to stay. I will have to look up some better options on getting the pieces to stay other than Velcro. It works, but I’d like something more heavy duty. I couldn’t really see well, but I can hear really well. The amount of people that would laugh and just be in disbelief of what they saw walking around is one of my favorite things. I love it whenever people find joy in my cosplays! One guy came over to us saying he’s always wanted to cosplay Zhongli and that seeing his attacks cosplayed gives him even more motivation to go for it. I hope he does! I enjoy being able to meet new people and make new friends. Having fun making memories at cons is always the best. I remember a little girl coming up to me to give me a lollipop in my Kokomi cosplay. She said she wanted to be “a princess like me too one day”. It warmed my heart. I think the thing I like least about cosplay is how competitive people get and how obsessed with follower counts people are. It’s okay to want to go bigger and do better, but we shouldn’t let that get in the way of promoting the growth of our community. We have to remember that as a niche community, we shouldn’t be pushing others away. Us nerds need to stick together.

Comic Cons are vibrant, electrifying events where fans connect with their passions. But for creators, artists, and vendors, it can also be a pressure cooker to turn a profit. While charging for photography services is prohibited without permission from the organisers, those who consider paying for a photographer: what ditching the fees unlocked a whole new level of success? Here’s why keeping photography free at your Comic-Con might be the secret weapon you’ve been searching for: Build Lasting Connections: Charging for photos creates a barrier, potentially intimidating or discouraging interaction. By offering them freely, you break down that barrier and foster genuine connections. Attendees are more likely to approach, chat, and learn about your work, creating a positive and memorable experience that builds loyalty and increases the chances of future sales. Memories on a Budget: Let’s face it, cosplay, merchandise, and food can quickly drain your con budget. Free photos eliminate the financial burden, allowing you to splurge on experiences instead of snapshots. Foster Community: Comic Cons are about celebrating shared passions. By offering free photography, you contribute to that sense of community and inclusivity. This goodwill can foster positive word-of-mouth and create a loyal following that supports you beyond the event. Remember, offering free photography is not about giving away your work for free. It’s a strategic investment in building brand awareness, attracting new customers, and fostering a positive community around your work. So, ditch the fees, grab your camera, and get ready to click your way to Comic-Con success! Bonus Tip: Encourage attendees to share their photos using a specific hashtag. This creates a branded online conversation and helps you track the reach of your free photography initiative. Ready to take the plunge? Share your experience with free photography at Comic Cons in the comments below! Let’s create a community of creators who leverage the power of clicks over cash.
