Some cool bodypaint 2012 images:

A photo with all the cosplayers together.
I’m semi-amused at the gender switches for Mole-Man (yep, that’s woman) and Silver Surfer (nice bikini and great body-paint).
Tech stuff: cropped down the photo (A LOT!); dropped the exposure on the background (masked out all of the people, uh… cosplayers); used Topaz Adjust to "Smooth & Flatten" the background to subtly make it a bit more two-dimensional while keeping the cosplayers three-dimensional.
Comments, critiques, and feedback are welcome.
UPDATE I am honored to say that this photo was featured in "A Compendium of Cool Comics Cosplay: March 2nd (2012)" article on weekly cool cosplays. Thanks Gamma Squad Cosplay!!!
