Do you cosplay or are you a cosplay photographer? Then I would like to showcase your work in an upcoming edition of Cosplay Friday! It’s easy to submit your work to me: You can get photos to me by leaving links to your portfolio in the comments, by sending images to me on Twitter, by tagging or mentioning me on Instagram, or emailing me at alratcliffe at yahoo dot com. And if you’re not the photographer, remember to tell me his other name so I can spread the credit love around—likewise, if you’re a photographer, share the cosplayer’s info with me if you have it!
