Cosplay Feature – Captain America

Today I bring you images from a cosplay shoot with Mike Powell as Captain America, Mike really brought this hero to life with this one. When I heard about Mike’s work on this from my friend Bob (Judge Dredd cosplay) I knew I had to have Mike come in for a photo shoot.

Mike constructed the cosplay with some help from costume replica company God Save the Queen Fashions, and Chris Fields. The detail work is impeccable, right down to the textures of the materials, the colors, and even the battle scars on the helmet and shield.

Cosplay Feature – Judge Dredd

One really fun part of my business is that I get a chance to work some of the many talented cosplayers out there, so going forward I shall feature any of them I work with here on this blog.

That said, I have always loved the Judge Dredd character, even the film starring Silvester Stallone and the new Dredd staring Carl Urban. When I found out my friend Bob had done the classic Comic Book version of Dredd I just had to get it in front of my camera!!! Bob is a cosplayer and costume designer/artist. The detail of this cosplay is flat out awesome and spot on. For this one he did call in a little help from his friend Jordan at to make the massive shoulder pieces. While bob did the suit, gloves, boots and other details. Honestly, its a little intimidating when he puts it on, he even has the Dredd Scowl down perfect…

Two very Talented artist came together to create one amazing piece of work!

Charlotte – ComiCon – April, 2013


If you haven’t figured it out by now… David and I are total nerds… What better way to embrace this than by surrounding yourself with 1200+ nerds? We went to ComiCon here in Charlotte to check out the amazing comic books, action figures, artists, and of course… the cosplayers! Some really fun costumes today and met a lot of great people! I even got turned into Mike from Monster’s Inc. We are about to start up a HUGE super hero project and took today as a great way to start meeting some of the local super heroes and talk about the upcoming project. Another really cool guy to check out is William over at Rebel Star Studios He gave me an awesome Captain America art piece that he did and we’re hoping to work with him on our project for some future ideas! Enjoy some of the finals from our Nerd Quest of the day:
