    Perhaps cosplayers should charge you modelling fee for taking their photos. $5 per photo should be good to recover their costume.

    Considering that EOY isn't meant for the general public but more of cosplayers, I'm surprised they didn't levy a lower fee for those in costume, and a much higher fee for those NOT in costume.

    Agree. Lucky, they only charge $12 for enterance fee. If too high, i think not much people will go to this event. Looking forward for this event.

    Actually the $10 & $12 thingy are for those who are going into the "market place" & event hall. For those (like me) who can't fork out these large amount of cash, there should be some action going on outside the ticketing area also (the Coffee Beans zone).

    I think $12 is ok, its a once a year event afterall. But anything higher than that would be absurd (considering that the other big cosplay event held at the Downtown East tent is still FOC every year). However the crowds are getting bigger each subsequent years so I hope the crowd control would be much better this time round. I remember the organisers decided to open up the access to the event hall for free after 4pm last year which caused some unhappiness for those who paid up in full just a while before the free access was allowed.

    If you dun wanna pay, like alex01sg mentioned, there is the area outside the hall near coffee bean where some of the cosplayers may spillover there, usually to rest in small groups, chitchat or have a drink/snacks. However please do exercise some courtesy and do not shoot them when they are resting or eating/drinking....always ask politely for permission if u wanna shoot them.

    It was meant for a laugh . So far not aware of anyone charging also. But if the person can charge, his shot mush be so good that the cosplayer really want it badly.
    Don't think I will be going eoy this year due to time contraints and the fees, but I guess no one will care

    I think Vince and Unseen did that last year.

    LoL perhaps.. I'm just kinda against the mentality that every event = model shoot. Recently I realise photographers are starting to think too much of themselves.

    Misrepresenting my words? I still stand by it, not hiring a photographer who ONLY has a f4 lens.

    Can I ask how an opinion on F4 lenses relevant to the topic of discusssion? I think we should stick to the topic and if you want to debate over whether F4 lenses are sufficient/insufficient, to do it back in that thread.

    Thanks for the information Woojacky . This is a photography forum so naturally we will be talking about taking pictures after all. If we go there dont shot then do wait?? drink coffee with the siao mei mei ah If we want to talk about cars, cosplay etc we would have gone to the respective forum more in depth details there, so there is nothing wrong when we talk about event here means photo opportunities. Please don't be offended by us

    Also, for photographers who're attending EOY for the first time, STAC has stated some simple and basic rules that you can read here: http://eoy.shirotsubasa.org/rules.php

    But for those lazy to click, I cut and paste


    1) Photography is limited to the designated areas only.

    2) Cosplayers are allowed to deny requests for photographs.

    3) STAC does not condone professional photographers and/or commercial entities hawking their business cards. Should you decide to accept the cards, we claim NO responsibility for what may occur.

    4) Attempts to capture unlawful photographs (E.g. upskirt, voyeur etc.), if discovered, will be handed to the police.




    Without being said,it's illegal already.

    long time no come in din noe got happening thread!

    Please do not take EOY as a photography event. It is for Cosplayers to gather to exhibit their costumes.. not everyone wants to have their photos taken and/or by strangers. There were quite a bit of unhappiness from the last few EOYs from photographers taking shots of cosplayers even when they are not posing. Many of them do like it when photographers take pics of them eating, drinking, etc...

    Naturally there are some who don't mind posing for photographers...

    The entrance fees goes towards paying for the cost of the event.. Rental at expo is rather ex.. STAC do not have a lot of sponsors like organisers of Cosfest..

    I disagree on cosplayers paying photographers for photos.. Most of them are happy enough with their PnS cameras, prosumers.. some are photographers themselves with DSLRs, etc.. we should look at it as a mutual benefit.
