These SHOULD all work. I don't know why they wouldn't. Try copying and pasting them into your browser.

I love the detail, only thing bugging me is how dark the subject is in some places.

The subject's pose is great, showing the cosplay but maybe come closer to there is less room around the subject distance is great for shots where there is something else related to the subject or the concept (or a wallpaper for a desktop) otherwise get in closer so more details pop out. the lighting is great though.

Looks good, it really does. But I'm noticing something--in almost every shot, the photographer is at the subject's eye level. We're looking straight-on, more or less. That's only one of the infinite angles available to you, so play around. Ground-level shots looking up, birds-eye looking down, close-ups, over-the-shoulder shots, and so on. Right now the camera is acting like it's a person, and it doesn't need to do that.

Consider getting some motion into your shots too. A static pose has its uses, but a body and costume actually doing something, even if it's just walking or scratching or picking something up, can look more dynamic and interesting. (You'll also take a lot of motion photos that look lame and uninspired before you get the shot that makes the hassle worth it. Stick with it.)
