It's not quite be called cosplay. I am a photographer and a long time dream to shoot cosplayers Dota, but in my city there are no cosplayers who want to cosplay Dota. So I found the models, similar heroes of the game and put up a small portrait shooting in my studio. Some of the photos a lot of Photoshop, yes, but this is my idea. Thank p.s. sorry for my english)

Costume is commissioned from professional cosplay & prop makers. Sorry, if you're not a fan of those of commission people for costumes, but I really appreciate their hard-works. Plus, its great to commission others and learn other one another to improve our own skills when we are about to build our own.
I've weathered the armors because I wasn't quite happy with their paint job as there was no shading. But I am really grateful that the costume come in time and they really did a wonderful craft work on this. Another expensive investment that paid right off.
