Growing up in Russia in the 1980s and 90s, Dimitri Seizef was inspired by all kinds of dark, moody and dystopian fiction, from video games to movies to comic books. No wonder then that he's carried that love through to his cosplay business.
Nuclear Snail Studios, Seizef's venture, doesn't just do cosplay for fun; he's also contributed to things like museum exhibits and magazine spreads as well.
Now based in Germany, you can see more of Dimitri's incredible work at Nuclear Snail's website.
