CSPLYeu is a project that finds its birth in the creative mind of Kyman Cheng, a photographer and retoucher from The Netherlands. Together with Stefan Dorresteijn he set out to unite the European cosplay community in a high quality product, befitting of Europe’s incredible cosplay talent.
In October 2014 we took a look at Europe as a cosplay community and found that while the United States and Asia are very heavily represented in combined, professionally developed products, Europe seems to lag behind. CSPLYeu is here to fill the void. With the help of cosplay fans and using Kickstarter for crowdfunding we’ll travel through 12 countries doing photoshoots with over 50 cosplayers to create a crowdfunded, crowdsourced high quality hardcover photobook that truly represents the European cosplay community.
