Record for most videogame character costumes is only 425? photo



The World Record for the most videogame character costumes in one place is only 425 costumes? That can't be right.

It is right -- technically. This report says that the judges from the Guinness Book of World Records did the official count of the participants at an October 5 event in Milwaukee. It was hosted by a costume company alled Buyseasons. This new record topped the old record of 276 people, set back in May of 2009 in London.

Here's my beef with this record. I've covered wars events for this company for going on seven years now, and I'm certain I've been to several events that had more than 425 game-costumed attendees. I'm thinking of the larger gaming and anime conventions that I go to every year, where you can't help but run into one of 50 or more big-crotched King of the Cosmos, or a dozen or more screaming Phoenix Wrights. Even a moderately sized fan con will have more than 5,000 attendees, and many of them are dressed up all weekend. 

Someone needs to put this stupid "record" in its place.

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 paid them. more

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, you know?  Any of ya'll dressing up for Halloween? I'm going to be a joke. more
