Variety, Quality, Inspired.

Mountain Cosplay Retreat is a unique getaway and photo intensive for photographers and costume artists. Participants will be paired up with each other and complete multiple photoshoots over the weekend.

A variety in styles and people will nourish an atmosphere of creativity and inspiration. Quality costumers will work with quality photographers. This retreat is for artists who love their medium and seek a new challenge for their work.

MCR is an adventure into nature. Emphasis on models in the landscape is encouraged in each photo.
