My photography practice focuses on people attending comic conventions. Relatively unknown events to most people, however they attract thousands of visitors each year. People chose to dress up as characters from their favorite games, anime or shows. My project shows these people and their characters they chose for these events. The work shows them in their chosen costumes and their everyday clothes. Showing the transformation the costume does to them, from an everyday person into their chosen character. They can become whatever they want to be at the event, from superheroes to villains. Everything is possible. And after the event is over they go back to their everyday life and the costume waits for the next event to make reappearance.
