The Best Cosplay Photo of 2013 Contest Winners!
Congratulations to SpookyElectric for his first place winning photo of Tomoe and Kenshin!
One of my dream shoots has been the climax of Rurouni Kenshin: Tsuioku-hen. Okitasemi and Mingswly agreed to do a snow snow shoot as Tomoe and Kenshin. Then I thought a perfect compliment to the shoot would be when the two meet. After some discussion of where we could find a wall to splatter blood on while making it rain, I built a Japanese-style wall and we made a bloody mess of my place. Here’s the result. Special thanks to Constants & BigWhiteBazooka for their assistance.
Congratulations to Muze for his second place photo of Tachibana Makoto & Nanase Haruka!
We were trying to express the big brother/caring nature of Makoto to the emotionless Haruka. The Japanese text translated to : “I somehow know what you’re thinking even if you don’t say anything” &
“You may look expressionless but it’s written on your face”. The series is about a boy swim team thus we feel the shoot is fitting for underwater style.
Congratulations to Sergio Aguirre for his third place photo of Pisces Saint!
Sergio Aguirre – Pisces Saint
Honorable mentions to Shiro Ang, BenHardly, Benny Lee, and Paolo Panganiban for their excellent photos! We had some heated debates over this year’s winners and it was extremely difficult to pick. Thanks to everyone who participated! Check back for many more contests throughout the year!

I shot this picture at Japan Expo Belgium in Brussels in November. I asked Shenzi and her friend Kuma (as Garrus) for this quick shooting. Since I am a die hard Mass Effect fan we found together on an creative basis really fast and I was able to shoot this picture. I tried to accentuate the renegade side of FemShep. As my biggest honor as a photographer this photo was featured within Biowares “N7 Day 2013 Thank you, Mass Effect Fans!“-Video. When I saw this I cried for like a hour ^^;
This shot is one of a series of photos from my recent Scooby Doo photoshoot; it was about 4-5 months in planning while I got every member of the gang, including a 100% accurate Mystery Machine from a car builder (Same model of the car). I even scouted a real Great Dane for Scooby from 3 states and 9 hrs of drive away. As for my side, I built two made-shift fog machines so the mist you see is 100% real, and nothing is photoshopped in.
A YOLO cosplay project by some of the cosplay photographers from the Philippines. Someone suggested to do Disney. And everyone agreed. 🙂
