Mollie Diamond as a geisha warrior, Kakashi and a dragonslayer

The Cosplay Project is a new 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 cosplay fans in character located in everyday settings and familiar spaces.

If you would like to be photographed in character or know anyone who would be willing to have a portrait made, please contact us by email dvs@xox.org.uk
