Pat Loika Makes Photographic Magic with the Thanos Maquette
Pat Loika is known around the comic book community not only as an incredibly talented cosplay photographer, but also as one of the biggest fans of Thanos in this sector of the galaxy.
In his upcoming photography book, Four Color Realities, Pat combines posed cosplayers with post-production elements to create beautiful images that straddle the line between realism and the stunning fictional worlds of comics, movies, and video games. In one of his latest photo projects, he added another exciting element to the mix- a Sideshow Marvel statue!
Pat photographed Sideshow’s Thanos on Throne Maquette for this epic addition to his book project, and with some photographic magic and post-production assistance by Ghani Madueno, he placed cosplayer Caitlin Contagious as Mistress Death alongside Thanos to create this stunning scene titled “The Shrine”. This image captures the imagination and cleverly blurs the line between fact and figure, truly creating one of Loika’s Four Color Realities on the page.
Sideshow is honored that he used our maquette for this epic picture that showcases the Mad Titan’s obsession with Death, and the power of his incredible gauntlet. We were blown away by how awesome this turned out! We think Mistress Death would be proud of this tribute.
Pat and Caitlin also stopped by San Diego Comic-Con Booth #1929 to say hello and recreate the scene in real life.
Sideshow had Thanos on display at SDCC 2017 as a part of our Mad Titan-sized giveaway that opened during Online Comic-Con, and is still open for entries!
