Cosplay with a Twist: New Art Exhibit Puts Superheroes in a Renaissance Context

     November 17, 2014


Cosplay is certainly commonplace at the various conventions that take place throughout the year, from Comic-Con to DragonCon to everything in between, but you might not expect people dressed as superheroes to appear as part of an art exhibit in Paris.  But that’s just what happened over the weekend at the Grand Palais, where photographer Sacha Goldberger unveiled his exhibition that features Renaissance-style portraits of superheroes wearing period garb.  The results are actually pretty amazing, as familiar faces like The Hulk, Superman, and even Darth Vader are given the portrait treatment.  Check out some photos from the event after the jump.
