This week's offerings in cosplay include masked heroes battle vixens in various locations. Cosplay shoots look like they're some of the most fun a person can have, don't they? Not only are people dressing up as some of their favorite characters and showing off their craftsmanship, but then photographers are exercising their skills by playing around with lighting, location, composition and other factors that go into making a successful shoot. Check out the gallery below for some examples of the marriage between the two crafts.
