My friend Iina Laitinen (Mae Rye as her cosplay name) creates breathtakingly convincing costumes to reenact her favourite characters. For a photographer like me, the costumes are like eye-candy with all their details and stories behind the famous characters. Knowing how much meticulous work it requires to put a costume together, I thought she deserves to have her work portrayed in a fitting surroundings, with a touch of some photoshop magic. Over the course of couple of years, I ended up shooting and retouching eight of her costumes, each surpassing the other with their fairytale glamour. Looking at this collection of characters now, I can only admire her talent and versatility.
My favourite character is Princess Leia, which is yours?
Alice in Wonderland
Princess Leia, Star Wars
Madeline Hatter from Ever After High
Elsa from Frozen
Adekan Shiro Yoshiwara
Princess Serenity, Sailor Moon
