I had the distinct privilege of attending my first cosplay / comic convention this past weekend. “Phatcon 2014,” hosted by Phat Collectibles of Anaheim, CA drew quite a crowd of cosplayers and non-costumed comic fans.
The venue was a little tight, so I didn’t stay for too long, but did manage to grab a few photos while I was there…
Featured above is a VERY cool Ironman armor containing one Mr. Jerry Powell. He stands about 7 feet tall in his suit, and the detail in this completely handmade armor is astonishing!
Of course, I was able to photograph my friend, Jesse, of The Bat Cosplay – what event would be complete without the brooding profile of the Dark Knight against red glass block…?
And last, but not least – a totally awesome Green Lantern, by Terrance of The Amazing T Cosplay, who, as you’ll see from his page, also does a VERY convincing Spider-man.
I’ve been doing more cosplay photography of late, and am really enjoying working with these folks who are so passionate about their characters and costumes. A few more recent samples can be found on my Google+ Cosplay Portraits album.
Looking forward to much, much, more in the coming year!
