Witness the cosplay of Animazement 2013

BeatDownBoogie went to Animazement 2013 and did what they do best. The cosplay montage video is just over nine minutes filled with a ton of cosplayers repping games like Borderlands 2, Zelda, Final Fantasy, and more. You can check out still images of a lot of these cosplayers over on Beat Down Boogie's Facebook page, plus see a bunch of others over on Japanator in not one, but two galleries!

Rad Halo musical cover features a lot of Spartans

Remember that wonderful Zelda violin cover? With cosplay and everything? Well Lindsey Stirling is back, this time doing a cover of the Halo theme while an all out Spartan war is happening around her. It's a pretty good cover, and I love how the 405th Halo cosplayers are just battling it out.

StarCraft II Kerrigan cosplay is out of this world

Check out our cosplay page for more amazing cosplay photos.
