A Glimpse Behind the Scenes of Cosplay Photography
Since cosplay has become more popular, it only makes sense that cosplay photography has expanded too. Photographers take pictures of cosplayers at conventions, but it doesn’t stop there. Many photographers set up shoots at locations outside of cons too, in spots that allow the cosplayer to show off their hard work away from crowds.
Andy Rae Cosplay recently worked with The Will Box to get some wonderful photos of her Suicide Squad Harley Quinn costume. The finished images are slick, but Andy Rae posted a behind the scenes shot to show the set-up that went into making it. Three guys are holding up a fence for the shoot, and then there’s the photographer taking the pictures and editing them. Like Andy Rae says, photographers really contribute to bringing a costume to life.
