As the 2018 weekend of Dragoncon is upon us, I thought it’s high time I share another good cosplay shoot on here. One of the great things about being part of the geek community is, well,…the community! While there are certainly some negative gatekeepers and nasty folks on the fringes, they are not the norm. Most of the time we support each other, lift each other, and help each other with projects. So when my friend Stephanie told me her partner had just done his very first cosplay ever and wanted to do a photoshoot, I gladly jumped in.
Stephanie and Jeremy worked hard to create as screen accurate of a Kylo Ren as they could. We partnered up with David Leo and Patrick Sun for Jeremy’s very first photoshoot (so many firsts!), wandered on down to a local park, threw up some smoke bombs, and got to modeling!

“Train yourself to let go of everything you fear to lose.”
“Madness is like gravity. All it takes a little push to ascend into darkness.”
(Sidenote: Many of you know of my bad complex about my jaw/profile. So you’ll understand why I flipped out over how amazing this picture is. Dramatic lighting FTW!)

Where once was love, love is no more.”
