Who am I?
I am Affliction Cosplay Photography's [link]
official model for American McGee's Alice as well as a writer who dabbles in other artistic forms from drawing to photography.
This dA account is mostly for fan use, meaning a majority of my work submitted onto this site is in homage to someone else. For instance:
-Cosplays of American McGee's "Alice,"
-Fan Fictions of Tim Burton's "Beetlejuice,"
-& Fan Art of Shigeru Miyamoto's "Zelda";
however, I do post some original works on here as well.
AUTHORING, MODELING, COSTUMING, & COSPLAYING :
Since I was little, I always adored fashion, costumes, and stories! My biggest dream and passion, though, is to be a published author! I am a retro & vintage girl obsessed the Victorian era & dark things. To make it simple, I love styles predating the 70s with a Gothic, lace, & pastel edge! I hope that when I am a learned enough seamstress I can make beautiful SteamPunk gowns and wear them to book signings! My main goal is to bring characters to life whether they are my own characters in a book or someone else's characters in a cosplay. My hope is that through my passions and determination, I can help and inspire others to achieve their dreams & desires in a positive way!
When having "writers blocks," I find that writing fan fictions help me via allowing my mind to go on a kind of "mini vacation" while allowing me to practice my skill at writing and utilize my creativity. Writing fan fictions also helps me come up with ideas that I may not have thought of otherwise. However, I feel I should share my work with fellow fans & friends
I hope you all/guys enjoy!!!
I am a HUGE fan of McGee's Alice for so many reasons! To simply put it, if you knew me & I somehow did not know of the games' existence, you would force the games in my face & be like "DRINK THEM!!!" (haha ^_^; corny play on words). As a cosplayer of Alice, I am VERY PASSIONATE about bringing her to life! & I believe that shows in the photos. I do not want to be a model in Alice's clothes posing for a camera; that does not interest me. Rather, I BECOME her, channeling her emotions and thought processes, leaving the photographer to capture the moments with their magic and skill set. To ensure I do the best possible job, I analyze her and the game, watch interviews with American McGee & pay close attention to what he says about the game, practice her mannerisms until they are natural, and even work on her voice. When practicing her voice, I try not to "parrot" the lines. Instead, I "feel" the intent behind the words and convey Alice's thoughts in the appropriate pitch and accent. I'm not saying I'm perfect (there is ALWAYS room for improvement!); what I AM saying is that I am passionate about her character. I hope that passion comes through my art & is able to bring a smile on everyone's faces
