The response to my Harry Potter pinup photoshoot has been completely overwhelming. At this point, the photos have reached over 300,000 people (and that's just the sources with view counters), and have been featured on POPSUGAR, Kotaku, and more. And although the vast majority of responses have been positive, which I am so grateful for, there has been a troubling subsection of responses specifically calling out the ages of these characters and accusing me of sexualizing minors.

It's here — my Halloween music video, Sally's Song!
Extremely talented music-person Blake Smith and I worked together to give Sally's ballad from Tim Burton's "The Nightmare Before Christmas" a cool 80s twist for this one! Then, Josh of Gyro Studios shot and edited the music video.
Something I love about you guys is that you always want me to do more cool things (and I want that, too!) Lately, one of the cool things I’ve been hearing a lot of requests for are more music videos — which I love doing. Unfortunately, they’re very time consuming and expensive to produce. But since it’s something we all want, we're gonna do it anyway!
As a marketer in "real life" and a marketer of a cosplay brand, I spend a lot of time thinking about marketing.

That's why I run the Facebook group Cosplay Marketing, and write blogs about cosplay marketing to try and help cosplayers grow their audience.
