vanity studios review
My partner and I had a lovely photo shoot at Vanity Studios. We had an amazing time, the staff are all friendly and helpful. We received complimentary drinks while we waited and were offered more throughout the session. The team on hair and make up did an excellent job and were very professional. Our photographer, Danny, was fantastic, very chatty and funny as well, he did a great job with the photos he took. Angie helped us choose our images and process the order for the ones we chose. Overall excellent service with great friendly staff, the quality of the images as well were incredible. Would definitely recommend and would 100% go again.

Thinking about booking a Photoshoot With Our Cosplay Photographers in London?

Cosplay (short for costume play) is when comic book and video game fans dress up as their favourite characters from TV, movies, comics, books, and games. Originally a popular type of photography in Japan, the cosplay community has also grown in the United Kingdom and as a result, so has the interest in cosplay photoshoots. In fact, hundreds of people in the UK can be seen dressing up as superheroes and other iconic figures from pop culture in comic cons and Anime conventions such as the London film and comic con and the MCM London comic con. 

Here at Vanity Studios in London, our professional photographers can capture you dressed as your personal choice of cosplay character in one of our innovative studio shoots.

Cosplay is about telling a story, and a good Cosplay picture should set a scene. Think about extra props, accessories or dressing you may wish to prepare in advance of your shoot. We will take care of the rest!

The ‘Cos’ part of the word ‘Cosplay’ stands for ‘costume’. This is because the artform is inspired by movie and literary costume design and characters. Cosplay essentially means ‘costume play’!

There is no real age limit for Cosplay, however some character costumes can be sensual or ‘skimpy’ in design. It should be noted that anyone under the age of 18 should be adequately and modestly clothed. Please ensure that your costume is appropriate for the model’s age group before arriving at the shoot.
