The RCS has been busy filming and editing group videos recently.

On Mayan Doosmday 2012, we went downtown in VOCALOiD cosplay to go and film our Christmas video, White Christmas. Consider this video out holiday gift to you.

 

Additionally, a few months ago, Anya, Shimada and Erik went to film a VOCALOiD breakup video to Taylor Swift’s We Are Never Getting Back Together. Post production proved to be a major difficulty for Shimada, but she was finally able to finish up the video and post it in time for Christmas!

 

Thank you for reading and from the RCS to our readers, we sincerely hope your holiday season is going well.

Hey all,

It’s been a while! There is quite a bit to be said update wise for the RCS:

SomebodyKuma (Erik) as Medic from TF2.

Shimada Yoko (Shimada) as Fall version Hatsune Miku. Follow her on deviantART @ http://LifeAsAnArtist.deviantart.com and on YouTube @ http://www.youtube.com/user/LifeAsAnArtist

Shimada Yoko (Shimada) as Fall version Hatsune Miku.

First, we are proud to announce that two more members have agreed to join our group! SomebodyKuma and Shimada Yoko have been doing projects and hanging with most of our members for a long time, so them being official members rather than “friends of the group” was frequently a desire of ours. After being invited, they happily agreed, and thus, we are now seven members strong! Now that our membership has become a little stronger, we are hoping that this year will be a year of many projects for the RCS, including cosplay music videos, more group cosplays, and more frequent updates for the podcast.

 Support our new members, follow them on their accounts across the internet!

Our next announcement is that we have officially started a group on deviantART! Now there is one handy place in which you can view and follow our collective works and collaborations! Please go check it out and watch us there!: The Royal Cosplay Society official deviantART group

As well as having all our photos collected in one place, we now also have all of the videos that the group has participated in collected in an official playlist on YouTube. To see us move and derp, please be sure to check it out!: RCS YouTube collection

Lastly, all of us here at the Canadian division of the RCS send our best wishes to our member Erin (Erin-Aru), who is currently busy serving in the US Navy. We miss you, Erin and are proud of all you’ve accomplished and made it through!

      School has started, but we can still say that we’ve recently gotten to have some convention fun! Our summer convention, Cos & Effect 2012, which took place during the last week of August was a lot of fun! Anya made a fan video to document the fun that we had, so if you’d like to see what some of the RCS members (Anya, Chelsea and Lio) have been up to, go check it out!

 

       Also, we send our best wishes to RCS member Erin, who is currently serving in the US Navy. We love you Erin!
