itaku = Italian + otaku (Japanese word extensively including cosplayer)

In the Itaku project I documented several Italian cosplayers impersonating different characters from their repertoire. Unlike public conventions when many cosplayers gather for parades or shows, I decided to photograph them in their own private spaces (in Japanese the inner meaning of the word otaku).

In some cases one cosplayer is portrayed twice in different disguisements.
