Cosplay in America V2 takes a reader on a visual journey through the culture of cosplay in the United States. Photographer Ejen Chuang spent three years visiting twenty cities to gather images for this book combining portraits of cosplayers taken at fandom conventions with documentary photographers of people making costumes at home and gathering at events. Along the way, cosplayers talk about their experience in cosplay. Featuring essays from Liz Ohanesian and Dr. Andrea Letamendi.
