Deadpool inspires – cosplay art from Reality Reimagined

The main reason I began cosplay photography and photo composite art, was to tell the stories of movies and characters that inspired me.


However what I found after a short while of getting to know the folks in costume, was that their passion for cosplay went FAR beyond just living their inspirations.


They wanted to inspire others.


Over the years I’ve worked with many individuals that donate their time to charity events, hospital visits and give so much of themselves to simply lift the hearts around them. For a moment, they show us all that there is light all around us.


Deadpool Cameo is one of those lights and I am so very grateful to be able to work with him. We are creating art that he will give freely to children and fans alike and for a moment, we will make their world absolutely SHINE.

Optimus Prime and the voice behind the machine

This Saturday a life long dream will become reality.
When I was a kid I constantly lived in my imagination. That might sound cool because things like ruby slippers, starships, laser swords and storm cats were my constant companions.

However my imagination had no filter. The horrors and fears of the dark always crowded around me. At night (trying to sleep but failing) I would stare into the shadows and overwhelming fear would cause my imagination to create some truly horrific concepts of what could be waiting for me.

And as cheesy as it may sound, I would say out loud, “Autobots – TRANSFORM AND ROLL OUT!” That was my battle cry. That was my assertion to the dark and the horrors that wait there: I have courage, strength and wisdom and I will not back away in fear. I will overcome it.

That voice was Peter’s voice. I did all I could to imitate it and I watched the show religiously and the leadership of Optimus Prime became the foundation to which I grew up into the person that I am.

To some, it’s just a cartoon. To me, it was everything.

This Saturday I will meet Peter Cullen, the voice of characters such as Eeyore, Venger and of course Optimus Prime. This Saturday I will meet the man that helped me overcome fear and taught me the power of courage. I made this piece to have him autograph it and while I’m there I hope to be able to tell him (briefly) what his work as an artist has meant to me.

Until then – ROLL OUT! 🙂

Gelled lighting + Glamour photography = LOVE

Had a wonderful shoot yesterday further exploring the gelled lighting style of glamour photography. I am falling in love with this style – so much creativity and beauty in color, light and story.
 
Danielle is a photographer and model who kindly offered her time to assist on this shoot. She shot behind-the-scenes images and assisted on video as we recorded the first half of this session for future educational content. I asked her if she wanted to shoot some images of our featured model for the video and not only did she take some stunning images, but she too stepped in front of the camera and was a blast to create with!

Learning more about the Marvel-verse with every photo

As anyone who follows me already knows, I’m not well versed in the Marvel comic universe. To be honest, I had no idea who Spider-Gwen was until I saw the recent (and fantastic) film Spiderman: Into the Spider Verse. Christina was the only Spider-Gwen in attendance that evening and it was a blast to get a chance to create something simple for this character, with visions floating around in my imagination of future stories to tell.

Black Panther fan going forward – cosplay composite art

So not being a Marvel boy for so long, there is so much about these popular characters that I know nothing about. When Black Panther debuted I didn’t see it in theaters, I didn’t go as I had done with nearly every other Marvel film to date. I eventually saw the movie when it came to Netflix and after that viewing, I immediately regretted not sharing in this story in the theater. I fell in love with this character, the story of the people of Wakanda and suffice to say that T’Challa has become my favorite Marvel character to date (Captain Marvel will probably give him a run for this fan boy’s money.) Early in the film, T’Challa has a rather significant emotional moment, that captured my fandom completely.
 
My father passed away in May of 2018 after a long battle with cancer. He was so very much a center point to my world and for the longest time in my youth, I could not imagine a world with out him in it. As the final years of his life progressed, it became apparent to me that his time was coming to an end. Many conversations with him throughout the years, signaled this event for my conscious mind and I began to realize that I he had been preparing me for the day when he would leave. Hours after he was gone, I began to push my emotions into a little box, so that I could process the world and move forward.
 
So when T’Challa visits the Ancestral Plane for the first time and communes with the spirit of his father, King T’Chaka, I took a deep breath and prepared myself for a highly charged moment.
 
T’Challa: “I am not ready to be with out you.”
 
T’Chaka: “A man who has not prepared his children for his own death, has failed as a father. Have I ever failed you?”
 
The lid of my grief, went flying off. In a good way 🙂 Because I knew that my father had indeed not failed me and I had not failed myself. In that moment, I identified so much with T’Challa and as his story continued throughout the film, I knew this was a hero that I wanted to be more like.
 
When I created this piece, I wanted to touch on that moment in the film. The colors, the landscape and of course the ever present watchful eyes of those that have gone before us.
 
It was a pleasure working with Converse Ninja on this shoot, as a part of the birthday/cosplay celebration in honor of Tony Julius and Comicare. We had a great conversation and I hope to be able to create with him again! Special thanks to Parkwood Studios for hosting this amazing evening of art and creativity!
