If there was ever an upcoming week for epic cosplay it would be this week. PAX Prime in Seattle and, from what I'm told, the mecca of all cosplay destinations Dragoncon in Atlanta are sure to provide some amazing displays for weeks to come.
With that said, I'll be ditching the Dtoid family this week (going to miss one wild party for sure) as I brave a trip to Atlanta to witness (and capture with my new camera) some hopefully insanely brilliant cosplay.
If it's one character from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time that could use some positive love, it's Link's faithful fairy companion Navi.
Thanks to Australian cosplayer Eve Beauregard, the often parodied little blue ball ...
The BeatDownBoogie crew went to Otakon 2013 and did what they do best. Cosplay montage! There was a ton of amazing cosplay going on, and I really can't decide which one was my favorite. I do like how Castle Crashers cosplay still happens to this day.
Part one above, and part two below. Enjoy! And check out some still photos over on Japanator.
Premiering tonight on SyFy is a new reality show based around the ever growing world of cosplay titled Heroes of Cosplay. The show will delve into the lives of nine cosplayers, of varying levels, as they go through the ...
We recently got word that the next DLC for Bioshock Infinite would be the two-part Burial at Sea, which brings Booker and Elizabeth to Rapture on the eve of its downfall. Also, it's film noir as heck. Chinatown with splicers....
It's Geek Week on Youtube, and among those partaking in the festivities is Sneaky Zebra. You might know them from us posting almost every single cosplay video they put out, and for good reason. For Geek Week, they're bringing another look at some of the better cosplayers of San Diego Comic-Con.
Special mention goes to the Iron Man-Deadpool crossover.
It only took two years for the thirteenth flagship title in the Tales series to reach western shores, but now that Tales of Xillia has finally arrived what better way to celebrate than with a collection of some fantastic cosplay traversing the series' lineage.
From the PlayStation classic Tales of Destiny, to the soon to be remastered Tales of Symphonia, all the way to the present with Tales of Xillia; there definitely is no shortage of breathtaking cosplays to admire. To narrow it down we've limited this week's entries to a few characters from the most prominent games in the series. Even this was near impossible.
So let us know below which one is your favorite. And as always, if you have any spectacular cosplays you'd like to show off here, send them in to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Welcome to our new regular column showcasing some of the world's most amazing videogame and other geek centric cosplays (costume play).
To kick it off, we're going mostly old-school with a stunning Princess Zelda, feisty Street Fighters, a serene Tifa Lockheart, and a downright disturbing Alice. Not to keep it completely retro though, we also have a look at one of my favorite new characters of this generation: a brilliant Nilin worth remembering from Capcom's sci-fi thriller Remember Me.
Perhaps the most elaborate cosplay of the week goes to a character from a MMO I've never even heard of based on the Kingdom Under Fire universe. The armor work and intricate detail on each sword for Age of Storms' Elyuin is utterly ridiculous. Follow this link for in-game footage of the actual character to see just how accurate the cosplay is.
Also if you have any spectacular cosplays you'd like to show off here, send them in to email@example.com
