From a photographer standpoint though, it's pretty shitty in that environment to expect people to sign off on all that and seems like he's taking advantage because he knows the atmosphere. But that's just me.



This smells very funny to me as I see his ability to monetize the work, but no mention of compensation to the model.- akin to how some predatory producers behave.

If it was paid, I'm a little less worried. Thems the breaks as a model - when you sign away your rights to a set you never know what will be done with it.

But if this is him taking shots of uncompensated coplayers and getting them to sign a release on the spot? In my professional opinion, that may be legal but it is NOT ethical.

I wouldn't question the logic of someone whom is clearly an expert when it comes to Japanese fuck pillows.

If the point is to create a pretty keepsake and not put any cosplayer in an overly-sexualized position... Then why in the hell do their BACKSIDES need to be on the pillows? Because from the pictures these are CLEARLY not 12"x8" pillows, all you have to do is look at the Loki in the original article to tell that.

It's true that watching the documentary "Otakus" on netflix was a real eye-opener. I even sent you a WTF?! email about it at the time if you remember, Jude!

I soooooo agree in relation to proportions - if that pillow is 12"x8" - that is a kiddie sized folding chair evidently.....do you hear the sound of back peddling - he's been banned from one Con.

There were TWO sizes of pillows. (I saw them) Small ones on a spin rack and large ones like the loki which IS body pillow sized.

THIS is NOT a foot long pillow, this is a 4 foot long body pillow. This guy is quite obviously a bullshitter in the most heinous way.

You people are fucking nuts. I swear you look for anything to go on a witch hunt for in this community. This is a GOOD MAN who made a questionable decision in terms of a product and you people are doing whatever it takes to slander his name.

just disgusted by this guy. Creating pillows with peoples bottoms on one side automatically adds a sexual charge to the pillow. And to be selling these? Its too much. What this man is doing is wrong.

Since this is the internet, nothing is audio. Therefore, slander does not exist in this dojo.

None of the pillows were the sizes that Vicorian Squid posted. Get your lives people. He had one three foot pillow of the Loki Cosplayer for display only, not selling any of that size to show people going thru his 360 pictorial process that they could order that product with their image on it. All the pillows he was actually selling were the small 12"x8" ones. The reason you have a backside picture is the whole concept of the 360 pictorial process, to show multiple angles of the cosplayers costume to view the detail of all the angles. Pillows only have two sides, so he put the front side view on the front of the pillow and the backside view on the back of the pillow. People act like these cosplayers have never had a pose where they have their backside facing the camera. Get over yourselves, and move on with your live and stop harassing and slandering this mans name.
