Meet the New Judge of WEGAME 6.0 Cosplay Show – Photographer Lina Aster!19 May 2021
Meet a new judge at WEGAME 6.0 cosplay show – an incredible photographer, artist and old dusty goth Lina Aster, also known as Aster Shade!
Lina is a member of the Ukrainian Association of Professional Photographers (UAPF) and a frequent judge at Ukrainian cosplay shows, so it won't be easy to surprise her with a costume.
Find out how to get the judge's attention in her superhero profile!
Name/nickname: Lina Aster.Superpower: X-ray vision.
Favorite color: black.
Favorite character: Jessica Jones.
How to turn a hobby into a profession.
Lina is sure that you need to study for a very long time, work even more and not consider yourself a professional until you become one.
A funny incident at a photo session.
One day, she came to the photoshoot at her favorite studio – Studio1. The team arrived at the scene two hours before the start of the photo session, the make-up artist worked with the model. Lina entered and saw a chainsaw-sword lying on the floor (it was a Warhammer-style photoshoot) with a make-up artist pouring fake blood on the model and gluing scars. An administrator was laughing nearby and said, “I knew they are with you.” As Lina summed up, reputation is important.
One time, Lina came to the festival dressed as her favorite superhero Jessica Jones. As the photographer mentioned, the experience was interesting, but she is more comfortable on the other side of the camera.
What she will focus on judging the participants.
Attention to detail and quality craftsmanship. Lina does not forgive the duct tape and the lack of lining in visible places. She expects from the cosplayers not only well-designed costumes, but also the transfer of the performance with the character.
The judge shared that she would check all the seams, fasteners and lights, pull all the wings and even peek under the skirts!
Expectations from the cosplay show at WEGAME 6.0.
An explosion of emotions and a huge number of interesting works, after all, this is the first festival after the lockdown.
