This is a trailer for Roleplayers, a very slick-looking documentary about LARPing from the Czech Republic.
Chirrut Îmwe, aka Donnie Yen’s blind guy from Rogue One, is a cool character! So it’s weird that this is the first time anyone has sent us any cosplay for it.
This Borderlands outfit is so good that it won a prize at last year’s Starcon in St Petersburg, one of the best cosplay shows on Earth.
Not all Pokemon Sun and Moon cosplay is accidental. Some, like this awesome Olivia, is very much on purpose.
Since its cast is mostly made up of [GENERIC ARMY DUDES], it’s tough cosplaying as someone from Call of Duty and having it look like, well, Call of Duty cosplay, and not just some guy playing military dress-ups. Unless you’re smart like Tyler Cairns, and opt for the Juggernaut.
The cosplay convention circuit is back in action for 2017, and our first coverage for the year comes from PAX South, which was held in San Antonio between January 27-29. There was some real good stuff on show.
Hey cosplayers, more Cowboy Bebop cosplay, please.
Kotaku cosplay regular Ginny Di returns here with a super cool tribute to Gil Elvgren’s iconic pin-up art, giving the 20th century illustrations a Harry Potter twist.
Spider-Man, being a good guy, knows that there are more dangers to the innocent than supervillains and Sony’s film division. So like many others in 2017, he’s taken to the streets to protest.
Oh hey, it’s Maul, Witcherest of Witcher cosplayers, starring in this short film all about Geralt getting his sword on.

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.
