Oh hey, it’s Maul, Witcherest of Witcher cosplayers, starring in this short film all about Geralt getting his sword on.
I mean “working” in that it actually spins around while you’re walking with it, not that some cosplayers have made a pioneering breakthrough in medical science.
I promise you, this is an image of a cosplayer, not a promo shot from the 2003 movie.
In 1977, as Star Wars was first blowing up, Lucasfilm were famously ill-equipped to get enough merch out to satisfy fans. While some people waited patiently into 1978 for stuff like action figures, one kid went out and started making his own Darth Vader masks. And made a ton of cash in the process.
Amazingly, this is the second cosplay we’ve seen from the same gallery of fan art, which depicted a bunch of Overwatch characters hanging out in their street clothes.
We see a lot of Star Wars cosplay around these parts. Rarely do we see it done with such artistry and attention to detail.
This isn’t a post about people dressed as Yuri on Ice characters. It’s about people who can skate recreating some of the anime’s most famous routines.
There’s always been a bit of a stigma attached to hentai, a highly sexualised form of Japanese anime and manga. Ditto for any associated cosplay, which can often be explicitly pornographic. Despite this, a German couple is finding some surprising mainstream (for the cosplay world, at least) success combining the two.
Katsucon, one of the biggest anime and cosplay conventions in the United States, has a surprise fan and former attendee (at least outside the resort): embattled White House press secretary Sean Spicer.
This is some Batman cosplay with a difference. Rather than try to copy the Dark Knight’s appearance from any number of comics, movies or games, frigginboomtoys has decided to try something more original, and imagine “Poor Batman”.
One of the highlights of Season 6 of Game of Thrones was the black dress that Cersei Lannister wore when [SPOILERS]. Here it is in cosplay form.
Rather than just standing around lookin’ sharp, these Overwatch cosplayers have gone to the trouble of creating their own little action-packed movie, which plays out kinda like Widowmaker’s official short, only with actual humans.
After growing out her hair for three years, cosplayer Pion Kim decided to have her head shaved for a Sombra cosplay. However, she put those discarded locks to good use.
You don’t see that much McCree cosplay, at least compared to other characters, which combined with how much harder his outfit is to replicate properly than, say, D.Va, is why I like it so much when I do see it.
Very important news, y’all—joining Team Skull is possible. Over the weekend, Magfest turned into Po Town as Team Skull cosplayers took over the con.
BioShock Infinite’s Elizabeth is cool, but she’s a lot cooler in the game’s DLC, which explains why so many people are out there doing such a good job cosplaying the character.
Last year is over, sure, but let’s take a moment to see which cosplay outfits were the biggest sellers in Japan.
The cosplay itself isn’t “eww”. It’s fantastic, with a surprising amount of detail! But there’s just something gross and creepy about seeing Souls/Bloodborne stuff that isn’t heroic knights come to life like this. Which, counter, is entirely the point.
