Imagine your favorite comic book, movie, and fairy tale heroes and villains if they existed during the Renaissance. What might a painted portrait of them from those times have looked like?
Wonder no more. Photographer Sacha Goldberger was part of an event in Paris recently where these iconic characters—including Batman, Wonder Woman, Iron Man, The Hulk, Darth Vader, Catwoman, Princess Leia, Joker, Superman, Snow White, and others—were photographed with a decidedly old school look to them, creating a fascinating set of Renaissance painting-style cosplay images.
You can check out a bunch of the images below to see how some of your favorites would have looked in a different time.
It’s also worth noting that these are all said to be legit shots. No photoshop has been used to enhance them, even with the models in the Superman and Princess Leia images, who both look eerily similar to Christopher Reeve and Carrie Fisher.
More of the images can be found at Goldberger’s Facebook page, where you can also find images of the gallery where these pictures were hung on the wall to really make them look authentic.
