    I shot these pictures at the 2009 Anime Expo. Cosplayers are the coolest bunch of dudes and duddettes you could meet.

    I love doing these types of conventions... the cosplayers are always willing to pose for you. I think I'll try Comicon next.

    Anyways thanks for looking, C&C welcome...

    I still have thousands of pictures to go through and process. Unfortunately my PC went down ... So many people waiting on me. No more laptops for me.

    Never heard of cosplayers, but guess its the next level (or several levels) up from fancy dress.

    Makes for fascinating photography - thanks for sharing

    Interesting venue, it's like a living dream world of fantastic characters I would love to get to something like this but doubt it is met with the same gusto here in the UK... though you never know I might be wrong

    #5 is a great capture by the way

    Yes, and take pictures of course!

    A cosplayer is someone who basically likes to play dress up, but they dress up like their favorite characters from cartoons, comic books, products, movies, toys, or anything else. The cool part is that no one sells these costumes so they have to make them, so you're also photographing their artwork. The trekkies started the whole thing...

    Thank you. These conventions take place around the world. I'm surprised to hear that.

    How creative for these people to either make their own costumes or have them made. Even better that they don't mind going out and being photographed, a hobby they all obviously take seriously. thanks for the info

    What I like about the pictures is that most of the models seem to be posing/facial expressions in accordance with their costume/theme . I could not pick a favourite, they are all brilliant.

    cheers Grace
