In honor of Costumery Week today we are featuring the amazing costumes that dwell in the Photography > People and Portraits > Cosplay.

Cosplay is an often-misunderstood genre. The deviants of this sub-community not only have to know their characters well enough to channel them but they also have to create elaborate, intricate, and authentic costumes. Although the costumes in submissions to Photography > Cosplay are not required to be hand made (the requirement DOES exist for Artisan Crafts)... they often are. The dedication to spend months creating a costume is impressive... the dedication to spend months (and sometimes almost years) creating a convincing real-life costume replica of something from a cartoon or book is absolutely awe-inspiring.

If you are impressed with the work created by the below deviants, please visit the Costumery Week Overview for more jaw-dropping creations.

Sit back and enjoy the Elegant, Watery, Steamy, Sensual, Powerful, and Princess-y goodness.

You know, when I was a teen, my friends and I used to do this all the time...and just like Steampunk-- we had no idea there was an actual name for what we were interested in!! Now as an adult, I'm really excited to see so many people with the same interests and I really can't wait to delve back into that fantasy world that I loved all those years ago. These images, the cosplay and Steampunk communities/clubs on DA are all so inspiring. Many are incredible photographers on top of creating such amazing costumes. They put the costumes we had to shame!! :O_o:
