When I talk about costumes every week on Cosplay Friday, I often focus on the people making said costumes. Cosplayers deserve some attention too. They’re creative and resourceful and sacrifice personal comfort to wear costumes all day at conventions. But you know what other group is pretty awesome? Cosplay photographers. I’ve seen them use their skills to take costumes to that extra step. Lighting, location, and editing can make a big difference.
Photographer Mike Dosik shared a link to his portfolio with me and I’m taken with the dramatic use of lights. Here’s one example below, and you can see more at Facebook:

Make or photograph costumes? I’d love to see your work and include it in a future Cosplay Friday round-up. Leave me information in the comments or share it with me on Twitter.
