Ronn Vinluan, better known as MomentoTempus, is a photographer based in New York; he specializes in capturing portraits, weddings, and fashion on a regular basis, but his real passion is capturing photos of cosplay. This is a sentiment I hear from cosplayer photographers again and again. They love attending conventions, seeing what cosplayers come up with, and helping them capture terrific shots of their hard work.
MomentoTempus recently attended Anime Boston and sent me a sampling of some of the costumes he put in front of his lens at the event—like this Harley Quinn:

And this Princess Mononoke Forest Spirit:

Take a leap on down to the gallery to find more of MomentoTempus' work. You'll see Ariel from The Little Mermaid, a Marvel group picture with Spider-Man, Spider-Gwen, and Mary Jane, and more. To keep with all MomentoTempus' photos in the future, follow him on Instagram and pop over to his website on the regular.
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 a photographer, maybe we could focus on your images from a single convention. 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 better. 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.
