Undressing The Art of Playing Dress Up Cosplay Deviants

To be honest I really wasn't sure what to expect from Schiffer Publishing's new book Undressing The Art of Playing Dress Up Cosplay Deviants.

I teach high school and a lot of my students are into Cosplay (mostly dressing up as Manga or Anime characters).

Undressing The Art of Playing Dress Up Cosplay Deviants looked like it might be something they would be interested in.

There are definitely a lot of Manga and Anime Cosplay models.

 Unfortunately the photos they posed for are not exactly appropriate for high school students.

Yes, there are nudes-nothing lascivious-but nudes nonetheless.  This is not a Cosplay book for kids. And while I appreciate the female form as much as the next guy I recommend this book best be viewed by adults.

Beautiful-yes.  Nasty or lascivious-no.  Excellent photography and model poses-yes. A bit much for teens-yes.

It's an excellent book, what some might consider and 'art' book, but hardly appropriate to sit on a coffee table.
