Cosplayers are always fun to photograph. Recently, Cosplayers gave the public a treat, as they turned out in a large group for a Superheroes versus Villains themed event in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia.
Cosplay is a contraction of the words costume and play. It is a performance art in which participants called Cosplayers wear costumes and fashion accessories to represent a specific character. Character models come from all walks of life to include housewives, linguists, librarians, and engineers.
Photographing and talking to the Cosplayers at these events are always a joy. Many of them really get into characters, and invest significant time and attention in the details of their costume. Here are a few portraits of these wonderful character actors.
