I used to dislike cosplay, as I found most of the cosplay fans put the anime character to shame with their unauthentic wig, the hideous sewn together costume, and wads and wads of styrofoam that is supposed to be... well... their weapons????!!
But I found a group on Deviantart.com that brings cosplay to a wholly new level, using fantastic photography skills, great angles, and finally, realistic looking anime characters!!
Check out the artwork of behindinfinity @ Deviantart.com ;>
Naruto & Gang
Sakura & Sasuke

Do pop by to see some of their cool stuff. They do put their excellent photography skills to other stuff too aside from cosplay ^^
