Gender-swapped Cap & Tony

I did clarify with them that, yes, they are Rule 63 versions of Captain America and Iron Man from "The Avengers" movie. I was able to grab a couple of pics with these ladies. I have a habit of showing quick previews to the cosplayers - which I wish more photographers would do as it helps avoid skeeviness and they really appreciate being able to see how they look on camera - and they chose this pic. Even though it was a bit dark (no flash), it had some interesting character to it with the shading and shadow-play. I agreed and here it is.

 

Tech stuff: I did lighten up Steve and Tony a bit so that you could see their faces without over-pixelating their skin and used PS Lens Blur on the background to give more depth to the pic.
