Do you know what’s awesome? Cosplay. Do you know what’s NOT awesome? All of the controversy surrounding it lately. You know what I’m going to do? Offer up some awesome cosplay.
For the last four years, I have been going to dozens of conventions a year and photographing cosplayers and convention antics. I have THOUSANDS of shots so sifting through them was a chore, but here’s a smattering of just a few of my favorites. I made my decision on lots of things: costume quality, the content of the photo, etc etc. Basically, all these shots are awesome, and I wish I could post all the hundreds of shots that resonate in me but for now here’s a small amount. Oh, by the way: obviously NONE of these people are geeky. At all. They’re all doing this for attention.
Molly McIsaac (obviously) takes her camera with her everywhere. She’s also totally a fake geek – you can tell because she wears nice clothes and makeup. You can follow her rants on twitter or on her blog, The Geeky Peacock.
