Atlanta Costumers by Riddle1 Atlanta Costumers by Riddle1
Last fall Chris came to the realization there are a lot of veteran cosplayers in Atlanta, and joked how it would be funny if we could get them all together in a photo, especially given the venomous reputation that cosplayers have of not liking one another. I thought it was a great idea and began contacting all the girls I knew locally to be part of this photo shoot. They were all excited to join in, and after trying to coordinate schedules, a few girls still unable to make it, but we managed to wrangle7 of us. The premise was that it was to be a Vanity Fair photo shoot, but I wanted a couple of photos since it was such a rare opportunity to be together and not be at a convention.

So it seemed obvious the first one was all of us in relatively the same outfits, of course with minor personal tastes, then I asked each girl to pick a costume they feel they are most well known for (at that time).

Last photo is titled

"The 7 Sins of Cosplay"

Idleambition (Trap) is usually thought of a man impersonating a female character in costume, "He would still be hotter then you."

Riddle – (Binge and Purge). Was brought over from the modeling world to the cosplay world in the early 90’s, so that cosplayers could indulge in geek cuisine without having to exercising to fit into costumes.

Yaya – (Back Stabber) It’s considered the original and most serious of the 7 deadly sins.

Alisa Chan – (Cry Baby) Feelings of hopelessness, despondency, and impending doom, “fucking 4chan.”

Miracole – (Ageism) It’s rumored that only cosplayers lie about their age. “She’s shouldn’t be allowed to cosplay, she is over 21”

Cathy & Meredith – (Rivalry) This in its purest form, presents with self-destructiveness, violence, and hate that may provoke online posts that can go on for centuries.

The way you are posed with your hair and glasses, you look a lot like Tina Fey.
