Every first and third Monday of the month, we at Geeks With Wives post a gallery filled with professional quality photos. These photos can be of one specific cosplayer in a single outfit or of a group of cosplayers portraying a single theme. However, with Mother’s Day being just yesterday, there was no way we could pass up this set!
This week, we feature RikkuGrape, Final Spark Cosplay, and Cloud City Photography as Lux and Garen!
Tell us a little about these cosplayers and what it was like to photograph them:
“I am so fortunate to have so many wonderful cosplayers to work with, and these are two of the best.
Rikku and Final Spark met at a convention where each had independently created complementary halves of the brother/sister team from League of Legends. As you can see, they are both outstanding cosplayers and costume makers. They became friends and when Spark came to visit Rikku, I was lucky enough to be asked to shoot the results. What we were attempting to do, was show how the typical brother and sister relationship might have been for the two adolescents as they changed into the warriors we know. We took the concept a step further and in the first six shots tried to make the pictures as cheesy as possible. While editing I decided I wanted something that looked like the photos had been pulled right from Mom’s refrigerator at home. The final shot is the pair in action, working as a team. This was definitely one of the most unique and fun cosplay sets I’ve ever shot.”
