“Slay Normalcy and Save the World”: LARPing and Monster Camp

leave a comment »

NOT having TV can have its downsides, like missing out on a screening of the following documentary Monster Camp on ABC 😦  I love everything about re-enactment and role-playing cultures and it looks like this is a quirky look at some of the characters known as LARPers (Live Action Role Playing) that inhabit the peculiar World of Warcraft.

Nevermind, I’ll have to catch it on DVD, thanks to my lil’ sis Nattie for telling me about it and thinking of me! Funny how people now seem to have an idea of the kinds of stuff I like to photograph. I’ve got a pretty good stream of ideas coming from various friends and relos. Keep em rolling in folks.

There are a number of photographers (interestingly many of them women) who have looked at re-enactment. Here are a few examples:
