One of the most entertaining aspects of every comic con happens after the con is over, and that’s going online to see the photos taken of the fantastic costumes worn at the convention. East Coast Comicon 2016 was no exception, inspiring everyone from the enthusiast cellphone photographer to the seasoned professional.
One of those seasoned professionals, Odin’s Iris, recently published stunning photography on his website taken at East Coast Comicon. Photographer Eric M.’s impromptu settings for the photos included parking lots, walkways between buildings, and the stairs of the Meadowlands Exposition Center, but he managed to make everyone one look like they were taken as part of a carefully-planned photo shot.
The photos captured costumes in beautiful, vivid detail and included many shots of several cosplayers in a variety of in-character poses. Not only do the photos capture the fun of the convention, but it’s also a thrill for cosplayers who spent a wide range of time and money putting their costumes together to see them photographed so masterfully. Odin’s Iris created what are likely to become costume portfolio pieces for many of his subjects.
His website says Eric is “a NYC based photographer who loves shooting graffiti, street art, models, cosplay, and anything all-around interesting. [He] has been published both nationally and internationally and [he] loves working with new people.”
