“I'm a self-proclaimed geek, gamer, and lover of life. By week, I make magic happen in theatre. By weekend, I dress as a superhero. It's a good life so far! A little more: As a professional seamstress, I enjoy making all of my own costumes. I do read the comics, I do play the games, and I am a fan. This is how I show my appreciation and gratitude towards the creators, developers, and artists who feed my imagination. Every character I costume, I love – each of them having a special reason for bringing them to life”. – BelleChere. Photo: Queen of the Frozen Wastes. Photo taken in February in New Hampshire. I am the model and I made the costume. (Photo and caption by BelleChere)

Austrian photographer Klaus Pichler has come up with an interesting and creative take on portrait photography – his photo series “Just The Two Of Us” features portraits of people dressed as their cosplay alter-egos. What’s fun about this series is that it seems to combine the costumed characters and the people wearing them, as the sometimes-fearsome characters are photographed in the relatively tame safety of their own homes.

“The Skeleton Krewe was founded in 1999 by Christopher Kirsch. Inspired by the early days of Carnival before tractors and floats replaced walking processions, the Krewe has become one of New Orleans' premier marching clubs. The Krewe began actively marching as a small group of friends, but has grown to 40 active members”. – The Skeleton Krewe. Photo: “The Skeleton Krewe 2013 – Manning”. (Photo by Kevin O'Mara)
