Make yourself a Fallout 4 Pip-Boy on the cheap

Maybe you missed Bethesda's mercurial Fallout 4 Pip-Boy edition each and every time it whack-a-mole'd back up. Maybe you discovered and fell in love with Fallout 4 late. Maybe you want to make a friend w gift. Maybe you're really fucking b...

This Witcher 3 Yennefer cosplay makes me want to play it again

Maria “Hannuki” Hanna really knows her cosplay, and this photo shoot of The Witcher 3's Yennefer is no exception. My favorite part is probably the set design -- it makes me feel like the Witcher academy actually exists. Now I ju...

Hot damn this Tracer cosplay is on point

Here's is the best cosplay I've seen since that Lightning get up that looked like it could be in-game, or at least a high-res action figure photo shoot. And since it's not Lightning, the model has the added challenge of actually needing to ...

Lightning cosplay

No, it's not in-game, this is Lightning cosplay

Let's get the potshot out of the way. Wow, this Lightning cosplay looks so much like a CG model -- perfectly captures Lightning's lack of emotion! Of course, we know that there's a lot of depth behind Claire "Lightning" Farron. A a warm per...

Turns out Resident Evil's Jill Valentine makes a good Jill Valentine

Actress Julia Voth's likeness was used for Jill Valentine's character model in the 2002 Resident Evil GameCube remake, so it makes a lot of sense that Voth would decide to do a Jill Valentine cosplay photo shoot (random disclosure: turns ou...

Fallout 4

I thought this Fallout 4 cosplay was an in-game shot for a second

Whenever a massive AAA game is out, it garners hundreds of thousands of fans, and rallies them to a general cause. Because of this, so many artistic creations are born, including this amazing Nick Valentine cosplay from Fallout 4. I had to ...

Mortal Kombat X

This Mortal Kombat X cosplay is pretty insane

I don't do cosplay updates often, but when I do, it's because I'm pretty jazzed about the amount of effort that went into it. That's the case for this Kotal Khan (Mortal Kombat X) cosplay by Yeliz, with photography done by SLDixon. In terms...

This Metal Gear Solid cosplay of Raiden is as real as it gets

Famed cosplayer Masazi visited TGS recently with a really badass Raiden costume, but it was tough to get a good look at it. Now you can see the entire outfit in video form, hosted and directed by the Rescue the Princess YouTube c...

Good god this Metal Gear Solid V cosplay is great

Although I don't post many cosplay updates, I'm a big proponent of the craft. I love going to conventions and seeing people play their favorite characters, as the community seems to really, truly enjoy it. The enthusiasm is infectious. This...

The best TGS swag I got was this creepy old man brochure (gallery)

There's so much kawaii shit at TGS (and in Japan in general) that it sort of cancels itself out of the attention span. To reach the most jaded people you have to go further ... fatherly, even. To be honest, I have no idea what's going on wi...

 
Comiket cosplay
This weekend in Tokyo, roughly 550,000 people attended Comiket (Comic Market, if you're nasty), a biannual event where independent creators sell games, manga, and other items directly to the fans. It's also a hot spot for the...   read

Splatoon Squid Sisters cosplay staaaays fresh

Splatoon's "Squid Sisters" Callie and Marie (or Aori and Hotaru, as they're known in Japan) seem to be a big hit with the Comiket crowd, as there are more than a few pairs of cosplayers have been spotted wandering around this weekend's otak...

This Chun-Li cosplay is fierce!

Comiket 88 is well underway and the cosplayers are out in force in and around the Tokyo Big Sight exhibition center, so you can expect more wonderful photographs like this throughout the weekend.

Probably the best Resident Evil cosplay I've seen

How heavy is this? Is it painful? What if your nose itches? What if you have to piss? What if your have to poop? What if you have to piss and poop? This is some high level cosplay and dedication.

Jamie Lee Curtis cosplayed as Vega at EVO

Cool mom (and actor) Jamie Lee Curtis attended EVO this weekend in Las Vegas, taking her Street Fighter fanatic son to the tournament to celebrate his recent high school graduation. Not only did they go, but the whole family went to the eve...

Mario, Luigi, and Wario invade the Tour de France

Sport news?! On a videogame website?! Usually this is the sort of transgression me and my chubby little sportless legs would simply not allow, but for this one time I will make an exception purely because of how brilliant it is. Mario, Lui...

Check out all this cosplay from Anime Expo in 60 FPS

Cosplay videos are always challenging, especially when you're at a show where you don't recognize half the characters. I don't watch a whole lot of anime, but I wanted to see if I could make an interesting video nonetheless! Maybe I succeed...

I hope this adorable Magikarp baby never evolves

This baby's costumed antics put a huge smile on my face. I hope you have the same reaction. It's basically the inverse of that (also great) beefcake Magikarp from last month.

Squid Now 2: Splatfest - A Splatoon avant-garde art film sequel

This Fallout cosplay proves cats are better than dogs

The argument about whether cats are better than dogs has finally come to a close. Cats win. I mean, just take a look at these cats cosplaying as a character from Fallout -- how could you ever consider dogs better after seeing this? You're p...

Tomb Raider? I hardly even know her, and it's even harder to pick her out on account of all the Croft cosplayers at this SDCC event

San Diego Comic-Con is a breeding ground for cosplay. You'll find everything from the most amateur of outfits to the best professional-grade costumes. People really like to dress up like the things they really like. Microsoft is making a c...

This Magikarp cosplay brings back wonderful memories

Oh. Oh now this is the sort of stuff I like to see, Sev Cosplay. It reminds me of an important time in my life… The last time I ventured to Hoenn was a journey I will never forget. It was a long, lazy summer full of friends and adve...

Sexy Nintendo is inevitable. Some will try to fight it, or even mock it. In doing so, they are choosing to live on the wrong side of history. I know how they feel. I scoffed along with the rest of them back when the burgeoni...   read

Half an hour of damn good cosplay at Dragon Con

Come for the pole-dancing Bigby Wolf cosplay (1:26), stay for the "Walk the Dinosaur" remix. The video's title is accurate -- "The Really Long Dragon Con 2014 Video," indeed -- but it's Beat Down Boogie. If I can make it through the whole ...

Dragon Con probably has the best cosplay

There's a guy here with such serious cosplay game that, dressed as Nicholson's Joker from Burton's Batman, he actually has three cosplay henchmen behind him. I don't think I could ask three friends to cosplay as my underlings. Maybe he pai...

TGS cosplay nailed Sora's goofy ass clown shoes

Those Sora shoes at 30 seconds. The coolest, grossest thing. Also, we need some new filming techniques for cosplay videos beyond "slow mo, then drop the bass and spin around people a bunch." Where's the Citizen Kane of cosplay videos,...
