Alvarado’s Cosplay Pin-upsSchiffer Publishing, Ltd. would like to introduce Alvarado’s Cosplay Pin-ups by Robert Alvarado.

We all want to see Snow White with tattoos, right? Well, at least photographer Robert Alvarado does. In his newest collection of high-octane, pin-up images, Alvarado shows how his own style of shooting and editing, which has been called cartoonish, illustrated, and painted marries perfectly with cosplay. In more than 150 vibrant, color images, see Alvarado’s take on this pop culture phenomenon as he captures models “cosing” as characters from Buck Rogers, Deadpool, Star Wars, your favorite D.C. and Marvel franchises, and much more. From fantasy to sci-fi and Disney to video games, the models embody and costume many beloved characters while striking traditional and contemporary pin-up poses. Complete with some behind-the-scenes shots and details on Alvarado’s approach to working with the models, this is the perfect collection of images for fans and students of pop culture and pin-up photography.
