Visit Planned!

Right! Tickets are booked!
Me and nert are heading up to snowdonia to stay with fatkraken for a weekend to check out locations in snowdonia.

So Characters, If you want to get a specific shot, tell me now! I shall look for a suitable location up in snowdonia

The things I am currently looking for are:-

A waterfall in a wooded area, to use as a base for the makalania forest and springs

Beaches for Besaid island and Zanarkind

We are going to look in the gardens of Portmerion for kilika and mihen highroad

Mountainous valleys for the calm lands
and mabye something lake-like for the moonflow!

Any other ideas?

on minibuses

I've been doing a little research on minibus hire, and the laws surrounding car licenses

With a standard UK car license you CAN drive a minibus, but there are restrictions:

Holders of a full category B (car) driving licence may drive any of the vehicles listed below:

  • a passenger carrying vehicle manufactured more than 30 years before the date when it is driven and not used for hire or reward or for the carriage of more than 8 passengers
  • a minibus with up to 16 passenger seats provided the following conditions are met:

i.   the vehicle is used for social purposes by a non-commercial body but not for hire or reward
ii.  the driver is aged 21
iii. the driver has held a car (category B) licence for at least 2 years 
iv. the driver is providing the service on a voluntary basis
v.  the minibus maximum weight is not more than 3.5 tonnes or 4.25 tonnes including any specialist equipment for the carriage of disabled passengers
vi. if the driver is aged 70 or over, is able to meet the health standards for driving a D1 vehicle

When driving a minibus under these conditions you may not receive any payment or consideration for doing so other than out of pocket expenses or tow any size trailer; you may only drive minibuses in this country. Drivers aged 70 or over will need to make a special application, which involves meeting higher medical standards.

the key points here are the number of passengers (no more than 16) and the fact that you must have had a license for at least 2 years. So I guess a hard limit on the size of this trip will be 16/17 people (I'm not certain if that number includes the driver). In practical terms it may be less, since there will need to be space for luggage etc. If it DOES go larger than this, a second vehicle would be needed.

also, it means I can't force you to pay me >:O

Welcome ^_^

Right where to start?

Whats the idea?
Inspired by some really amazing cosplay photography from across the world, I've always wanted to do a project myself. However there is no way I could do this myself (Not owning a camera does not help :P)
Final Fantasy X in my opinion is a great starting point. The FFX world encompassed many different types of landscape, with plenty of nice images to recreate.
Me and Nia have been dicussing some locations for shooting and we have come up with some ideas. Thess span from ruined abbeys to mountains to beaches. I've also been talking to alot of you and trying to put together the main cast, I've probably approached you about a specfic character in mindn already.

One thing I will say is that this is going to be a pretty long term project ^_^. 
But I put together this community on LJ to start to get things organised, to discuss who wants to take part, and to think of Ideas and locations.

I will be sticking up lots of crazy ideas that I have in my head! Feel free to do the same!
