"It’s a heartwarming peek into their world, one inhabited by people too often, and too easily, dismissed as geeks or nerds." - WIRED

 

 

 

 

 

PRAISE FOR COSPLAY IN AMERICA V2

 

"... a love letter to an unusual, geeky hobby that portrays American cosplayers, and their families and friends, posing in their finest costumes, enjoying candid moments at conventions, and even intimate scenes creating and getting ready at home."

- FORBES

“Not just the most elaborately dressed or the sexiest, what you see is a cross section of costumed America … each one is set in front of same black backdrop which lets you focus on the cosplayers and how much work they put into their costumes. Ejen’s message is clear : they’re the artist. He’s just the photographer.”

- Madeline Brand Show (NPR)
