Spider Jerusalem cosplayer

This cosplayer at PenguiCon (the open source/science fiction convention held just outside of Detroit each year) is getting ready to attend the masquerade dressed as Spider Jerusalem, the heavily tattooed hero of Warren Ellis's seminal comic series Transmetropolitan. He and his assistant are drawing in the tatts with a Sharpie pen — and doing a fine job of it.

(Another in the ongoing series of interesting stuff I take pictures of while out and about)
