Wow this is amazing~ Thank you so much for compiling this for cosplayers of all levels. I'm kind of a newbie myself & this definitely makes looking for the right tutorials easier.

This is extremely helpful, but the only thing i would say about graveyards is to either be really sneaky or check to see if photography is allowed (A lot of it has to do with whether the cemetery is owned public or privately). I did a couple shoots at a local one. I got away with the first one, but towards the end of the 2nd shoot, we were told to put the cameras away.
