Philip Ng, a.k.a. Knightmare6, is a skilled editor, videographer, and photographer. He shoots commercially but also spends time at conventions around New York City and the northeast capturing cosplayers. He attended the recent Katsucon in February and shot portraits of cosplayers wearing armor, princess dresses, and everything in between. This Star Wars Rebels Seventh Sister costume was at the convention:

When you shoot at a convention, I feel like it's always a trick to find places to take pictures that aren't in front of the exhibit hall and don't have garish convention center carpet as a background. Philip has a knack for finding unconventional (get it?!) angles and spots when he takes photos, so cosplayers and all their hard work are shown in the best light.
Stroll on down to the gallery for more of Philip's cosplay photography. You'll discover costumes inspired by Voltron: Legendary Defender, League of Legends, and more. Then, to catch all of his photos, follow him on Facebook and visit his website.
Do you cosplay or take photographs of cosplayers? Then I want to see your work so we can talk about highlighting your creations in a future Cosplay Friday gallery. If you're interested, please get in touch with me at [email protected] and send photos you'd like me to feature—the more high-res the photos, the etter. Be sure to provide credits for the cosplayers or photographers for each image because giving credit is good manners—bonus points if you include links to relevant Facebook pages or websites. Though I wish I knew all the nerdy franchises, I don't, so please let me know who or what is being cosplayed.
