Cosrevo Cosplay Exhibition

CosRevo 2013 brings the best of the best in cosplay photography and hand made costumes. It gives people from all over Australia the chance to show their works inspired by popular anime and comics. The event was held at Sydney's Powerhouse Museum on 7 December 2013. I had the opportunity to do some quick mini-shoots with some friends on the day.



Booker DeWitt * Superman

Left Sparta Cos Booker DeWitt, Bioshock Infinite Reference to the cover art of Bioshock Infinite. We staged a similar pose, lighting and appearance to the main cover. We didn't have a shotgun so made do with a modified NERF revolver.
Right Justin Acharacter Superman Experiment with two lights, camera left to include a red gel. Gives it an unnatural feeling to Superman. Does it work?




Nathan Drake

Left & Right Nathan Drake, Uncharted 2 Something Wicked Cosplay Tried to add a bit of colour to an otherwise neutral gray look for Dan's character. Focus on the "upper torso" and "facial features" of Dan's character to emphasize a 'rugged soldier' feeling. I think these shots went well. The orange gels in the right image is leftover from the Bioshock shoot.

Left & Right Mad Maven Lara Croft, Tomb Raider Tried to recreate iconic Lara Croft appearances from the games and the 2001 movie that Mad Maven's character is based on.


Below is a scene from Tomb Raider (2001) where Angelina Jolie is seen illuminating the cavern with yellow glowsticks. Tried to recreate that scene with orange gels instead. I think it was a stunning success! More importantly the image was perfectly exposed. Given the nature of the event were were at, I'm glad I nailed the technical requirements of this shot.
