Yes it’s nearly a year away but people are hunger for an event in London.

I’ve been in talks with Stan C. Reade to hold a photo shoot during their annual Photoday at the Windermere Estate. Every year, they invite companies like Leika, Fuji, Pentax, Canon, Lexmar and others to show their wares at local estate for the day. There is a stage, live music, face painting, free draws and free giveaways a free photo seminars. Also there is models from the local modeling school. Hotdogs and hamburgers (food not free). Annual photo contest. On and off site photoprints.

I’ve also trying to get them warm to the idea to open their event to cosplayers. Not only will this mean you have alot of people taking your picture but I’m trying to see IF there is a demand to have a segement for cosplayers to take over the stage.

The only down side is it’s the first Sunday in July, July 8th 2007 to be exact. The same weekend as Toronto Trek.

Last year’s music was Jazz and Latino music. Past years, They had Taiko Drum group from Toronto. Not actaully JPop but definitely Japanese. Past years, everyone who attends an fills out a ballad got a coupon for processing and free CDR to store their pictures.

You can check out Stan C. Reade website and check out this years event. Maybe even ask if they will allow cosplayers to perform. In past, they had the model students dress up.

I’ll keep people posted as details come available.
