It’s October 28th already, and you don’t have a Halloween costume. But worry not, because we’ve got your back.
Cosplayers Photographed Outside Their Natural Habitat – At Home

Most of us are used to seeing cosplayers exclusively at fan conventions but they have to get dressed somewhere! photographer Klaus Pitchler has put together a series called “Just the Two of Us,” featuring Austrian cosplayers at home and in costume. The results are pretty spectacular and sometimes, a little bit creepy. Pitchler writes:
Who hasn’t had the desire just to be someone else for awhile? Dressing up is a way of creating an alter ego and a second skin which one’s behaviour can be adjusted to. Regardless of the motivating factors which cause somebody to acquire a costume, the main principle remains the same: the civilian steps behind the mask and turns into somebody else.
I’d admit, I can’t place a lot of these (they could be original costumes for all I know) but they all look fantastic. See more from Just the Two of Us.
