Photographer Nobutsugu Sugiyama has elevated Cosplay to a form of artistic and creative expression by the use of high-end photo-editing techniques.
Conventional methods of shooting a model usually demand expressing their individual natures.
However, Sugiyama has removed this individual interiority and focused on just the outline of the character.
Resembling an anime-figurine, cosplayers are perfectly placed in a virtual showcase in this application.
“Cosplay showcase” is designed, produced and sold by Photographer Nobutsugu Sugiyama.
