Here is the last original piece from the Series, "Cosplay Girls."
I developed this series when I was in a residency program at MakeShift Society in San Francisco in 2013. I photographed many Cosplayers at the largest Cosplay event (I believe) called Comiket in Tokyo. I cropped the images using Photoshop and printed them on fine art papers. Then, I painted the background with watercolor, ink and acrylic. It was technically a loooong process :)
