Cosplay has always prided itself on its ability to transform fans into their heroes, wherever and whoever they are. In theory, at least. In practice, things haven’t always been that perfect, especially when a fan is black.
Guild Wars fan Enayla has outdone herself here. Not only has she gone and made a fantastic Asura costume, but she built the accompanying Golem as well. A Golem that’s nine-feet-tall.
It may not be the biggest PAX show on Earth for video games, but PAX South is one hell of a cosplay convention.
Even though it’s similar to one you might have seen last year, this cosplay will still be hard to top. That’s right, here’s another Hunter x Hunter Gon cosplay.
Most don’t, and do it for the love. A very lucky few, however, can make a bit of cash, whether on the internet or in real life, and in this clip Stella Chuu explains how.
My Little Pony cosplay isn’t just for furries. It’s also for adults who want to pretend that said ponies are actually the the Gods of Ancient Battle.
He doesn’t have the power of Gandalf nor the snappy fashion sense of Saruman, but Radagast is a wizard with his own charms, which Canvas Cosplay has absolutely nailed here.
That’s Knightmage as Kratos. And no, he didn’t travel to Greece for the shoot; that’s just the President McKinley Memorial in Niles, Ohio, which we now know can double for a mythical Greek temple in a pinch.
There’s just so much to love here. The cosplay for starters, of course, but also the dedication: while the lightsabers have (duh) had some photoshop work done, that hellish weather was the real deal.
Mamakiteru has one solid, dependable shtick: she takes characters from Japanese horror manga, and she cosplays the hell out of them.
Of all the people out there currently working on cosplay outfits for a First Order Stormtrooper, 98% of them are going for this guy in particular. Thing is, without his spinny stick thing, it’s just not the same.
Omi Gibson, the Queen of Metal Gear cosplay, has over the years taken on some of the most iconic characters in Kojima’s series. This, though, is a little more niche.
Maybe not! It depends, really. But since this Korean cosplayer has a head full of hair, she needed a bald cap to pull off her One-Punch Man outfit.
Who needs CG when you can blow things up for real? Japanese Cosplay site Cosnavi introduces an upcoming “blast photography” event that is limited to a hundred participants and lots and lots of explosions.
For all its critical acclaim, Bloodborne doesn’t seem to be a big hit on the cosplay scene. So nice job, Walrider, with this killer Gehrman the First Hunter outfit.
Well, this looks cool: a bunch of friends who cosplay together as Sailor Moon characters worked with a production studio to make a very slick documentary about their outfits, friendships, challenges and adventures.
