Photographer captures home life of Spider-Man and Silk

The life of a superhero isn't all action, as photographer Dai Sugano shows in these images that depict Spider-Man and Silk in their down time, doing utterly ordinary things. (Although how the wall-crawler gets the cereal through his mask is likely pretty extraordinary.)

Sugano, who works for the San Jose Mercury News, photographed cosplayers Saul Cervantes and Jare Longacre (boyfriend and girlfriend) ahead of this weekend's San Jose Wizard World Comic Con.

"I am the father of two little kids who love watching the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon on TV, and I usually end up watching it with them," Sugano explains. "When I got an assignment yesterday to photograph local cosplayers (sci-fi or amine fans who dress up as characters), I thought, 'Wouldn’t it be fun to make a photo illustration of them doing the normal things that they do at home, but in their costumes?' Luckily, the couple was on board with the idea."

(From VIEWFINDER blog) Photo by @daisugano for @viewfinderbang -- I am the father of two little kids who love watching the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon on TV, and I usually end up watching it with them. When I got an assignment yesterday to photograph local cosplayers (sci-fi or amine fans who dress up as characters), I thought, “Wouldn’t it be fun to make a photo illustration of them doing the normal things that they do at home, but in their costumes?” Luckily, the couple was on board with the idea. Often when we meet our photo subjects we are complete strangers to them, we just have to hope that they will trust us to not make them look bad. I’m always grateful for people who let me take chances on a photo shoot, and help me go for something little different. Thank you, @spideyfit and @kittyjane9 you both are superheroes! And special thanks to my boys for making me watch that cartoon so many times. #spiderman #OnAssignment @wizardworld #ultimatespiderman @mercnews
