The costumes seem to be getting better all the time, and lots of cosplayers are now doing professional photo shoots out in nature or posed in front of appropriately gothic architecture, and even doing some toughup with photoshop on the background and lighting and such, and they look amazing. Those shots are so much more atmospheric than the usual pics of great costumes standing in some convention center hallway under fluorescent lighting while random people wander past wearing shorts and sandals.
Speaking of, check out the photo essay of the Spiral Cats vistiing Blizzard Irvine. It’s weird to see the perfect female Wizard and female Crusader cosplayers posing with random Blizzard employees (JW trigger alert) in normal SoCal casual wear. Though they do match the various statues and game art assets that decorate Blizzard’s HQ quite well.
