Comic-Con Cosplaying Candids

Cosplayers pose. Hell, it’s half the reason they go to conventions: being asked to pose validates their costume choice. And bystanders love asking them to do so (I did).

But what if you’re looking for something a little different, something besides the usual “Strike a pose!” cosplay photos? Well, then you might try capturing some candid shots of cosplayers, when they’re on the phone or having a smoke or just chilling out.

Photog Mathieu Young captured several such candid shots at Comic-Con, and they’re striking.

Just a Viking, chilling with a Coke, a smoke, and a smile. (Okay, not so much with the smile.)

A quick rest for the Catwoman, because those boots are HEAVY.

Like I said, striking and unusual work by Young. (Coincidentally, Young was also the photog for the Reign pic I featured here.)
