We’re all used to seeing people dressed up at conventions, but taking those cosplayers out of the con and putting them into their homes makes them look a bit surreal. That’s the beauty of these images by photographer Klaus Pilcher titled “Just The Two Of Us.”
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. ’Just the Two of Us’ deals with both: the costumes and the people behind them.
His photographs feature Austrian cosplayers of all kinds caputured at home doing the mundane things we all do like ironing clothes, taking baths and just hanging out killing time.
