Yes, that’s cosplay.
Yes, that’s cosplay.
Late last night, actress and well-known cosplayer Chloe Dykstra posted a first-person account on Medium, detailing a period of her life in which she was engaged in an emotionally and sexually abusive relationship with an unnamed man—albeit an unnamed man who many people have been comfortable identifying as her…
We’ve seen plenty of Horizon Zero Dawn cosplay, but never a full-blown music video where the cosplayer—in this case Fenix Fatalist—is singing her own song she wrote about the game.
ColossalCon was held earlier this month in Sandusky, Ohio, and it’s easily one of the best cosplay shows of the year. Not only is it a regular con, but outside are some idyllic grasslands, and inside the resort is a pool.
To help get cosplayers started on their Assassin’s Creed Odyssey outfits—of which there will be many, because those two star characters are just to die for—Ubisoft have released a guide, showing the finer details on their costumes and the correct colours for each component.

To help promote Death Stranding at E3, Kojima Productions had a life-size figure of star Norman Reedus made up, then dressed as he appears in the game’s trailer. If you’re wondering about the scale of that figure, it’s 1:1 Hideo Kojima-sized.

Comicpalooza was held in Houston last week, with over 40,000 people turning up to meet, buy some stuff, see some panels and yes, partake in some cosplay.
