No Costume is No Costume looks at the culture of cosplay and fan conventions, or “cons.” Attendees of cons use intricate costumes and makeup to transform themselves into fictional characters from anime, sci-fi, and popular culture. The portraits in No Costume is No Costume are less about disguise and illusion but instead focus on the people behind the characters, catching them in quieter moments of rest or waiting—moments when they are not “on."
