We have lift off!
Family, friends, friends of friends and friends of friends of friends. The moment you’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived. The CSPLYeu Kickstarter has been launched. The funding process has started and I’m here to shamelessly ask you to go back it right now! I’ll wait until you’ve backed it.
Behind every large announcement is an inconceivable amount of work and the launch of our kickstarter project is no exception. Let me take you back to October 2014 when Kyman came to me with the idea for a european cosplay photobook. His excitement was more than enough to get me on board with the project and we started thinking of what we needed to do to get to this point. Months of short nights and long days were spent planning, calculating, talking to cosplayers and making lists of all the things we still had to do. When one item was taken off the list, four more were added. The work seemed to only increase but somehow when May 14th came around all the work was done and we were fully prepared to launch a week later.
So now we’re here. It’s May 21st and our Kickstarter is live. Have I asked you to go back it yet? You really should, it’s pretty awesome. Anyway, the next 30 days are going to be a whirlwind of Facebook posts, blog posts, tweets and emails so expect to see us all over your feeds. Most our time will hopefully be spent talking to the cosplay community and talking to cosplay-related news outlets. After those lovely 30 days the last bit of planning has to be done and then the traveling starts. The traveling is split up in two separate months. The first month will be done by Kyman alone who will take the train through Europe to visit and photograph 20 cosplayers. After that month he’ll take a month to do a little post processing, transfer and backup all photos and reschedule the second month of traveling during which he’ll be partly accompanied by Stefan.
First things last
All of these plans are incredibly ambitious but we feel we’ve done more than enough planning and calculating to properly fulfil a project of this size. However, nothing can be done unless our Kickstarter project is fully backed so for one last time I ask you to please go to the kickstarter page, back the project and share it with your friends. Not alone will you receive our eternal love, you will also receive one of the awesome rewards!
