Cosplay and Cameras

Join us for a day of costumes and photographs! Our first cosplay photoshoot with a twist–come in your best costume and create a photo reference library for you to use!

The fourth Pens & Pixels event is now open! With the launch of our new website, and all its new services, we have set up our next event to be bigger, better and more fun than ever! 

Join us on June 20th from 1:00 - 7:00 

Algonquin College

C Building

Room C025

For this, our fourth event, we are running a costume photoshoot and life drawing session. Hosted at Ottawa's hot new venue, Maker Space North, come in your best costumes and take advantage of our three professional photographers! 

Or just join us for a life drawing session, and draw our models in full costume–everything from princesses to superheroes! All attendees will receive the full image library after the event is done.

The goal is to create a photo and pose reference library for artists to use! Want to know what the light on a storm troopers armour really looks like? Perhaps how the fabric falls from your favourite comic book character? You will have to come and find out!

We will also be joined by some of the top cosplay talent in the city, from 501st members to the League of Heroes. You will not believe the outfits these pros have!

After the event is done, we will curate all the photographs taken over the day. Attendees, costumed or otherwise will then get the new pose reference library e-mailed to them. We will have bathrooms and space available for changing if you want to bring several costumes!

A big thanks goes to Critical Miss & Retro Joad Cosplay and Cabaret for the use of their photo for the still life poster!
