Holy bodices, Batman! Over the weekend photographer Sacha Goldberger displayed an exhibition at Paris’ Grand Palais that focused on depicting cosplayers as formal 16th-century portraits.

Goldberger’s many subjects included superheroes, Star Wars characters, and Disney princesses–and even though some of the cosplayers’ faces might appear photoshopped to look like the actor or character they’re portraying, Kotaku points out that there was no computer-generated sorcery involved in Goldberger’s work. Just a team of keen-eyed costumers, cosplayers and make-up artists.

You can check out more images over on Goldberger’s Facebook page.
