Cold Weather Shoot Tips!

I have been the cosplayer in a few snowy shoots of my own and would love to share some tips on how to make it a success for you!

  • Layers!

    • How much can you layer up under your costume?​

    • Long sleeve shirts, leggings, gloves, socks.

  • Nude fleece tights​​

    • Fleece tights in your skin color will help with characters that show legs! ​

  • Nude fleece under shirt

    • Like the tights, it'll help for characters that show arms.​

  • Wear boots

    • Does your costume cover your feet? Wear boots instead of costume shoes! You can even brings shoes to switch out into if we need a few shots that show feet (like twirls!)​

  • Bring a coat or blanket​​

    • You'll want to throw it on to keep warm between shots, while I'm changing lens or while we move locations​

  • Hand and foot warmers

    • These are little packets that heat up that you can put in your gloves, shots, pockets, etc. ​

    • Careful not to put them directly against your skin

    • Activate them 15 minutes before the shoot starts; they take awhile to warm up.

    • I've seen them for sale at Dollar Tree!

  • Bring a thermos with a warm drink

    • Hot chocolate, coffee or tea kept warm in to a thermos or bottle will do wonders!​

  • Keep it short if needed

    • Keep your own cold tolerance in mind when booking your shoot!

    • Don't worry about me, I can be out there all day! 

  • Winterize your character!

    • Get creative and make a winter version of your character! What would they look like in cold weather clothes? Build the warmth right into your costume! ​

    • Cloaks, faux fur, gloves, hats, boots, and more!

 

Book now!

What if there isn't snow the day of our shoot?

No worries, we'll just postpone to a day when there is good snow coverage!
