A Kingdom Under Fire cosplay that will blow your mind

You would have to be half mad to dream these up

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 protected]

Until next time!
