The Cosplay Project is a series of images which explores the world of fantasy cosplay. Drawing on ancient Japanese and Chinese myth, mixed up with techno futurism, cosplay fans create new personae for themselves as fantasy characters. The aim of this project is to create a series of portraits of cosplayers in character located in everyday settings and familiar spaces.
