as a cosplay photographer
I used to own a cosplay photo studio in Akihabara (called studio CROWN) where you can shoot epic cosplay photo or try cosplay by renting all the equipments such as wig and costume.
I was the owner of the studio and photographer at the same time. My studio was interviewed and documented by various world wide media include Tofugu. (Germany, China, Canada, USA, Taiwan, South Africa etc...)
Now I'm back in the U.S (Vegas) I'm looking forward to see more cosplayers in the future.
