THIS PICTURE IS FROM AMERICAN COMICON. IT WAS TAKEN BY MV PARTSCH. IT IS A PICTURE OF COSPLAY ARTIST & MODEL JESSICA NOVA.
Here is the original post from June 25, 2011.
One of these days somebody will have to explain to me the rationale behind not giving credit to the artist on tumblr. It takes nothing away from the poster. It actually makes you look like a nice person. It took Jessica hours or days or longer to think-up her version of a Harley Quinn Costume, design it, and then actually create the cosplay. She spent hours (days?) posing for photographers at MegaCon. I had to pay to get into MegaCon, search for people to take pics of, wait for the right time to ask “Harley” to take her picture and then pose for me, actually take the pictures (which took a long time because I take tons of pics and I take forever), and thank her and get her information.
Months later, at home, in front of my computer, I have to chose the photos, put them in a certain order, photoshop them a bit, make sure I have all the info on the post correct, find a cute Harley quote in this case to post with the picture, contact the cosplayer and tell her I’m posting her pic, and then hope that my followers like the pic and our work together.
But thanks to comicheroines for ignoring all that and posting my picture with no credit and no acknowledgement of any of the work that possibly went into it.
Not to mention Bruce Timm & Paul Dini.
