Mike Taylor - Star Wars Death Trooper

Another 501st Legion member Mike Taylor doing portraits for his Star Wars Death Trooper. What can I say? He looks intimidating and awesome. Great work on the costume Mike!

Mike also cosplays as Darth Maul, and I’m dying to photograph him in that costume. I should go bug him again about it. :)

Star Wars Cosplay With Han Solo!

I’m a member of the 501st Legion Star Wars costume group, so I often meet the best of the best in Star Wars costumers. One of those best of the best is Steve Umholtz, who famously cosplays Han Solo. Steve wanted reproductions of images taken of Harrison Ford as Han Solo back in the 80’s. So in my home studio we meticulously worked every arm, leg, joint, and body part to exactly match Harrison Ford’s look on set. While Steve worked his body into perfect Han solo presentation, I worked the lights to mimic that 80’s single light look.

Just for fun, I own a Millennium Falcon Guitar that my brother made for me. Nothing is cooler than Han Solo jamming on a Falcon Guitar in the spirit of blues. NOTHING.

I think the results speak for themselves!
