Yo otaku geeks and like-minded fellas, FHM's main man in all things geek, Jay Tablante, is releasing a new book that you're sure to love: Geekology 2.0: Techniques In Cosplay Photography.
It features dual-inversed covers starring cosplay goddess Alodia and primetime queen Marian Rivera:
A follow-up to the 2012 cosplay tome Geekology 101, 2.0 once again brings to life our favorite characters in videogames, anime, and movies—oftentimes with the help of the ladies we've come to love in FHM's pages. In his first book, we saw the likes of Daiana Menezes, Rhian Ramoss, and Jinri Park bringing the geek world's sexiest characters to (still) life.
Geekology 2.0 follows the same drill with FHM favorites such as first-timer Cherry Ann Kubota cosplaying as one of anime's sexiest and most iconic cyborgs, Motoko Kusanagi; and Alodia and Jinri once again donning bright, tight costumes. Oh, the country's Sexiest Woman is somewhere inside, too!
Here are some samples:
Marian Rivera as Darna Wonder Woman
Jinri Park as Chun-Li
In the photographer's own words, his new cosplay book "continues the pursuit of the geek dream of bringing out our favorite comic book and anime characters to life into the photographic medium." More than that, it also aims to show readers how to make these images, from brainstorming to the step-by-step of post-productions. (Translation: If you want to create these perfectly-posed, expertly produced, geek-inspired photos, this is the book for you.)
To convince you further, feast your eyes on more of Jay's stunning recreations:

Geekology 2.0 is now available in major book stores nationwide for P695. A grand launch and book signing will be held on March 21, 2015 at Bonifacio High Street at the Digital Photographer Philippines' 9th Anniversary event.
