Oscar Cwajbaum and his wife have been attending comic conventions together for 18 years. When they were given a 2MP Canon point-and-shoot as a wedding gift, Oscar was eager to finally be able to capture the elaborately costumed convention attendees in photos.

Years later with a decidedly more advanced gear setup, he shoots portraits of these cosplayers both at conventions and on locations appropriate for the costume. His photos capture the attention to detail and playful spirit at the heart of cosplay. Take a look at his photos and read more about his technique in our Q&A, and see more of his work on Facebook.
