Best Cosplay Photography Ever

Best Cosplay Ever (This Week): Sailor Mars, Ms. Marvel, more
Although cosplay has been present for decades within the comics, anime, and sci-fi/fantasy fandoms, social media has played an integral role in the thriving communities of costuming that exist, such as Cosplay.com and the Superhero Costuming Forum. Over the years, the cosplay community has evolved into a creative outlet for many fans to establish and showcase some impressive feats of homemade disguise, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics at conventions. In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.
Best Cosplay Photography Ever: Saffels Photography
With the growing popularity of cosplay in the world of pop culture (as well as our own Best Cosplay Ever feature), the cosplay community has grown rich with costumers who specialize in creative and intensive skills, from sewing to prop work to makeup artistry, to help bring their beloved fictional characters to life. However, one cannot deny the integral role that cosplay photography plays in the cosplay community, both in properly documenting costume work and in utilizing their own artistic talents to complete the transformation that brings a fictional character to life. Best Cosplay Photography Ever will place an occasional spotlight on a specific cosplay photographer whose skills could put Peter Parker to shame! Today’s featured cosplay photographer is Mike Saffels, who showcases talented cosplayers with his signature stunning portraiture.
