Cosplay is a contraction of the words costume play and is a performance art wear participants wear homemade costumes and accessories to represent a specific character.

What to wear for an intimate portraiture shoot can be a question for some of our clients, so why not have fun with it? Your intimate portrait can be romantic, sexy…or can be fun too.

One of the biggest trends these days in traditional portraiture is cosplay, where the subjects enact their favorite characters in film and fantasy fiction. This kind of session brings to mind one of our favorite catch phrases—Life is one big dress up.

Today’s featured image has a client dressed as a sexy version of Pokemon’s Pikachu character, although purists might notice the color is wrong. (It should be yellow, I think.)

You can dress any way you like for this session, using wig, wings and costumes far removed from traditional boudoir or intimate portraiture to create an image that’s just plain fun and yet uniquely yours as well. We’d like to help you realize your own fantasy. If you don’t have a costume, tell us your ideas. If the portraits are a something that, with your permission, can be used with a model release in our portfolio and/or website, we may be able to partially subsidize the purchase if we are able to use the images for promotions. And you get to keep the costume after the shoot.

What to wear? We also have a small selection of different kinds of lingerie that are available that you can use for your next intimate portraiture session and some of the images you see on this blog were made with them. Which ones? Just ask.

If you have your own costume, please contact us via phone at 720-515-4497 or via the Contact tab above and tell us what you have in mind and let’s schedule a photo shoot. Call us today to make and appointment for your own unique intimate portrait.
