In this thread post the cosplay photos you think have the best framing, posing, editing and overall quality
Are these the best because they're all so fucking small you can't notice all the imperfections?
If i wanted to see a bunch of overly photoshopped micro Chinese store bought cosplays I'd go through instagram or the 2948529472 galleries made by scrotes dedicated to this exact query
>>10505627i ain't never seen two pretty best friends its always one of em gotta be ugly
LMAO, so many of the early "BEST" photos have parts of the bodies cut off, so they're definitely not based on composition.That said, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Who are your favorite photogs?
>>10505627>>10505630I think it's because Kaisa's a guy.
>>10505630>>10505724Evelyn looks like a fat chick who desperately tried to shoop herself skinnier but you can still tell she’s fat, especially her face.
>>10505537>so many squishy eyed people ittdo you have yellow fever, op?
>>10505703Not OP. For someone based in the US, probably bunnytuan. Muze also has really nice stuff.
>>10505786I like Muze’s photos but they get boring after a while because he shoots exclusively for the same 4 cosplayers over and over again. It’d be nice if he branched out and shot cosplayers that aren’t just petite Asian girls. But then again, he’s Muze. He doesn’t need variety because he’s already the best of the best.
>>10505568This is facts, cosplay photography is almost detached from cosplay with how much photoshop is involved to make it look good. The core outfits are garbage tier and you can tell they're cheap as fuck.
>>10506260This. Cosplayers/photographers put in massive amounts of work into photoshopping costumes too. A lot of pre-shoops show that the costume is ill-fitting or badly made. >picrel (kind of. Before pic is still shooped but not as hard as the after pic.)
>>10506260>waaa if it's not an outfit made by a large movie studio budget that runs upwards of 10's of thousands of dollar it's hot garbage!
>>10506284>t. someone who buys shitty Chinese made costumes that fall apart after 1 wear
>>10506285What kind of budget you using to buy premade cosplay? I’ve never had a costume gal apart on me ever, and I wear it the whole con day
>>10506284Screen-accurate costumes are just as shitty. They just have to look good on camera, not actually be functional long-term.
>>10506264I'm pretty sure this picture is multiple photos composited together for the skirt and face, etc. The top is probably just before the face got composited from a better photo-- it's pretty hard to get the model to have a good expression when you're trying to get a moving photo.
>>10506463Yeah, her face becomes half its width and her eye becomes twice as big because she’s moving and not because of photoshop. Sure. Let’s not even mention how her bodice becomes perfectly fitted or how the glove on her right hand becomes less wrinkled and tighter.
>>10506476nayrt but it looks more like liquify and heal/clone stamp than composting.
>>10506472You know what compositing means right? It's literally using photoshop to stitch multiple photos together. You take the best parts of every photo to make one nice one. They probably took multiple shots of her moving the skirt around and combined them for the one flare it has right now, then took a more flattering photo of her face and pasted it on afterwards.
>>10506481that definitely is photoshop on her face retard look at the eye. her face has nothing to do with the compositing.
>>10506509You can literally composite a better face/better features on, retard. Compositing is literally the definition of photoshopping, why are you being so insane? Take your vendetta filters off, christ.
>>10506481I agree with >>10506480. The edit you claim is “composited” looks more liquified than anything else. You can easily smooth out wrinkles and change how the skirt flares with liquify, and it’s much more simple than compositing too.
>>10506528Wtf are you actually retarded? Compositing isn’t the only way to photoshop pictures. It’s ok to be wrong, quit being so autistic about it.
>>10506530>>10506529Nice samefag, kek. No one has said a single time that there wasn't liquify or smoothing in the photo, you absolute tard. The "before" photo is already fucking composited, do you not see the damn pod floating in the air and the smoke? The original anon was saying that the face in the "after" is likely composited on.
>>10506595>the face in the "after" is likely composited onnayrt (pic related) but her face shop looks more like photoshop’s auto slimming feature than composting or liquify since her whole head shape changes. The smoke and bot are obviously composted though; you’d have to be the world’s biggest tard to think they’re real.
>>10506595it's not though. the after is after the slimming and beautifying shoop. both photos are already composited and the only thing that changes in the after is the egregious beauty shoop and eye enlargement.
>>10506595Did someone hurt your feefees by posting your unshooped coswaifu? Kek. The background is composted but the edit on her face and body is liquify and warping.
>>10506669>>10506671>>10506679>even though every single other part of the entire photo is composited, the most obvious and easy composite of replacing the face with a more flattering shot is definitely not! all girls are ugly and need to liquify in order to look good!ah, the classic vendetta-chan. tone down the autism sweetie.
>>10506694sorry your crap composting job is so bad
>>10506694Not everyone who disagrees with you is the same person, tard.
>>10506255>he's already the best of the besti guess overly shooping really is the criteria
>>10506717In the cosplay community? Yes. If you don’t post overshopped Asian cosplayers, you’re a “bad” photographer.
At gulls talking about overly shopped photos, can you post some stuff y'all think looks good?
>>10506756Ah, I can already tell this is bait. Someone will post a photo they think is good and you’ll screech about how that’s photoshopped too, so we shouldn’t be allowed to criticize overly photoshopped Asian cosplay girls.
>>10506758Dude I just want to see nice pictures, not people screeching about what's wrong or right.
>>10506709>>10506713>i know how to edit html on a web page!!1!kek, you must really have it out for this girl. did she steal your boyfriend?
>>10506763>this absolute autist is still mad someone insulted his cosplay goddessu-chan She’s not gonna let you smell her feet, bro.
>>10506758Not everyone is as autistic as you are to turn a photography thread into some thinly veiled vendetta thread, anon. Why are these threads always filled with jelly ragers?
>>10506765>w-why won't people let me vendetta the asian girls i'm jealous of!!1!this is a photography thread, ma'am.
>>10506766This is exactly why the cosplay side of cgl died. Because faggots couldn’t shut up about their vendetta.
>>10506768posting some content so vendetta-chan can stop clogging up the threadfonchann universe has some amazing work, their lighting usage is top tier.
>>10506778the concepts she does for her non-cosplay work are amazing as well. her shoots have such an erthereal vibe.
>>10506779@clamp90357 has some beautiful shots as well
>>10506778>>10506779Based, keep up the good work anon. Discovered fonnchan earlier this year and fell in love with all their work. >@nikolay_photo on IG
i don’t have a horse in this race so idc about either side, but it’s funny how an argument originally about editing costumes turned into an argument whether a photo was composited or liquified, which then into a shitfest with vendetta accusations...yes, cosplayers do indeed photoshop their costumes to be better fitting. fashion brands do it too. yes, the photo is composited but it’s also liquified. both sides can shut up now and let us have a nice photo thread. >>10506762a pic for you
>>10506787Same cosplayer, different photog.
>>10506787FFS. No one cared that it was liquified or not, but anon blatantly ignored that and shat up the thread.
>>10506791shhhh before vendetta-chan comes back.
>>10506793It's not a vendetta. Also you're ruining the thread by dumping this shit.
>>10506797post photos otherwise you’re just shitting up the thread.
>>10506802Westerners really put the MAN in woman. Post the good shit, faggots.
>>10506781Aesther of course has amazing work>>10506787lbr, it's always the same handful of anons who come to these threads specifically to salt and cry about oversh00ped!1 asian cosplayers. >>10506797anon your vendetta is and continues to be embarrassing.
>>10506808Ugly. If you like this, you are a faggot.
>>10506820This is such a cute photo and works well for the character. I just wish they’d turned down the exposure on the trees so the cosplayer would stand out more.
>>10506822Was super curious to see what that would look like so I just ended up bringing it into lr mobile, masking her off with my sausage ass fingers and bringing everything else down by .5 on the exposure slider.
How is photoshop any different to contacts, makeup and prosthetics lmao, do you really think everyone should be 100% natural otherwise it’s fake? Stop wearing cosplay then, that’s fake. The gulls on this board are so assmad about tools that give millions of girls around the world the confidence to show themselves rather than hide away in a cave because of lacklustre genetics Get over yourselves you salty cunts
>>10505553So, for you retards "absolute best cosplay" is pretty girls in striking poses. This one is not even a mediocre cosplay. Wrong boots and gloves, shoddy staff and top. But hey, she's showing skin.
I've always wondered why there is such a culture of focus on the photographers in NA/the west but not in the rest of the world and I'm starting to understand whyWhen was the last time you heard about a legendary photographer/cosplayer from Japan/China/SK/Russia/Europoor?Part of it seems to be because in the rest of the world they seem to focus more on your work than who you are (something to do with the "your productiveness to society > your worth as an individual" mindset or whatever)obviously it sucks because you easily don't get as recognized, but alas>>10506834sorry you got posted the problem isn't that it's digitally editedthe problem is that it's very badly digitally edited.It's fine to do 90000 edit actions as long as you did it well.But most photogs just slap on some fried presets and fuck off. It's the equivalent of a "profeshunul" cosplayer buying overly expensive non matching wigs, makeup, contacts, etc and looking crusty and cheap as shit.>B-BUH BEAUTY IS IN THE EYE OF THE BEHOLDER WEHHHsurealso>comparing photoshop to prostheticsvanity really has gone this far lol
>>10507136dumping some more
>>10507154IDK why, but photos like these pull at a weird string on my heart
>>10507161Because you're gay anon. It's okay, embrace it, get yourself an aesthetic jfashion girlfriend and take gay pictures together.
>>10507136>When was the last time you heard about a legendary photographer/cosplayer from Japan/China/SK?China, SK, and Japan all have legendary cosplayers. There are groups like Spiral Cats and that one girl, Enako, who earns up to 10 million yen a day at Comiket. pic not related, it’s just a pic I think is nice.
Dumping some pics. I really like the photos from Calssara's Sumia and Azura photoshoots because they suit the character really well. Imo whoever edits the photos colorgrades too hard and the colors are way too saturated though. It kind of works for Azura but not really for Sumia.
>>10505627>>10506264>>10506717>>10506778>>10506779>>10506785>>10506789>>10506811>>10506820>>10507143>>10507190>>10507194>>10507195Only quality pics in the thread.Excellent job, thanks you 4 sharing. <3>>10506758>>10506802>>10506834So true>>10506825Makima and Aki ?
