Cosplay


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 Stre...


San Diego Comic-Con never fails to impress when it comes to cosplay. Thursday and Friday were a bit limited when it came to costume variety, but today was a different story. In fact, the only thing stopping nearly endless cos...


San Diego Comic-Con is happening this week! So to celebrate here's a montage of cosplayers and even celebrities rocking it at London Comic-Con. Okay, I would have posted this regardless of SDCC happening right now. Expect way more cosplay goodness as the week goes by. [Via The Awesomer]


Anime Expo 2013 went down this past weekend, and you know what that means right? Cosplay video montage time! KBLnoodles has released three montages so far, all showcasing some awesome cosplay from novices and pros alike. I j...

Remember last year when a guy dressed up as the QWOP guy? Well he did it again at this year's Anime North, going to the extreme with his QWOPing.


Like every meeting of the nerd minds, you can expect a healthy amount of awesome cosplay, and the London Comic Con is no exception. Not satisfied with a mere gallery, the folks behind the YouTube channel sneakyzebra made two...


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!


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.


Pro cosplayer Tasha is at it again with another mind-blowing cosplay depicting the Queen of Blades from StarCraft II. I can't imagine how much work it took to make the whole costume, let alone the process even involved in trying to put it on. Tasha has a few more pictures of the outfit over on her Facebook. Check out our cosplay page for more amazing cosplay photos.


Our friends over at Beat Down Boogie did what they do best and filmed cosplayers showing off their outfits over at Katsuco 2013. Team Fortress 2, Mass Effect, Devil May Cry, Borderlands 2, Final Fantasy, Zelda, and plenty more all get some costume loving here.


Skyrim is starting to become my favorite game in terms of all the awesome cosplay that it's inspired. I was most impressed with the Dovahkiin Daedric armor cosplay, and the same goes for the Nightingale Armor created and mode...


As a long time series fan, I'm excited for Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time's release today. So, I'm celebrating in the only way I know how: by posting random NSFW images of Sly Cooper, of course!


They must have a lot of free time over at Kojima Productions. I mean, it's not like they are busy working on new Metal Gear games or anything! A few hours ago, Hideo Kojima tweeted this picture of former Metal Gear Rising pro...


deviantART user Chris "Zerios88" Wolvie states on his page that he's a "little noob cosplayer." Sir, I beg to differ. Chris custom made his own Dovahkiin Daedric armor from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and it's just stunning. ...


The facial expression of this man simultaneously dressed as a pimp and Pikachu says it all, until you notice the woman on the left of the photograph. Oh, but just wait -- if you go look at the full image, you'll then see that...


deviantARTist tarrer and MadeInHeaven1979 joined forces for some rad Dead Space 2 centric cosplay. tarrer brought Isaac Clarke to life with his stunningly detailed power suit, while MadeInHeaven took on the role of Ellie, eye...


I love cosplay. A lot. It's always a blast seeing people go all out to dress up as characters they love and strut their stuff at conventions like Dragon*Con, PAX, Comic-Con, and way more. One of my favorite cosplayers to foll...


Project Cosplay is a pretty great YouTube series that showcases cosplayers creating their outfits. This latest episode features Crystal Graziano who presents one of the best looking female Shepard outfits I've seen to date. ...


Remember this incredible cosplay photograph? Cosplayer Anna Moleva (a.k.a. Ormeli) does such a good job of being BioShock Infinite's Elizabeth that Irrational Games has put her on the payroll. Anna now works to brin...


Dragon*Con is one of the better places to go for some of the best cosplay action around. You got a small preview of this year's costumes thanks to the photos provided to us by Beat Down Boogie, plus their six minute video lo...


[Update: Contest over! Winner is Serkderg the Herkderg!] What better way to celebrate Halloween than by dressing up as your favorite videogame character? And what better incentive to share that costume with the world than the...


Some of the early entries in Atlus' yearly Halloween costume contest, Atlus-o-Weenie, are pretty impressive. The top prize is technically a $300 Amazon gift card, but it's obvious that the real prize here is bragging rights. ...


Behold! The LORD's cruelest joke! Cast out from Heaven, rejected by Hell, and feared by the realm of mortals. The rules of nature apply not to this misshapen beast, for it is wrought of no natural element. It exists without e...


It's crazy how New York Comic-Con is slowly turning into San Diego Comic-Con. Well, there's nothing in the way of sunlight or summer temperatures here (it's cold and windy), but the crowds are similar. It seems like more and ...


On the first two press-only days of Tokyo Game Show it's all business suits and messenger bags, but when the event opens up to the public the cosplayers come out. It's funny how you'll never see them around the convention cen...


It's been a long Labor Day weekend, but Dragon*Con 2012 has finally come to a close. This final batch of photos is the largest one yet, so take your time and enjoy the myriad costumes and celebrity appearances. There was a pr...


I must admit, I was worried about how many Dtoiders would actually make it into PAX Prime this year. Tickets sold out in record time, yet everything turned out alright. A bunch of you made it to our panel on Friday, and then ...


Cruisin' Mos Espa in my DeLorean.War's over, I'm a peacetime Mandalorian.My story has stumped Star Wars historians, deep in debate, buffet plate at Bennigan's. Just when you think Star Wars costumes have been done to death, s...


Maybe it's just because I keep happening to stumble upon reruns of Lois & Clark lately (no, that's exactly what it is), but I've got Dean Cain on the brain. What a kwinky-dink that he just so happens to pop up in a few Dr...


It's such a drag when two major fan conventions fall on the same dates, especially if you regularly attend both of them. While 2011's Dragon*Con had a weekend all to itself, it unfortunately wound up going head-to-head with P...


There is a surprising amount of great cosplay at PAX. People walk around in some pretty elaborate and sometimes beautiful outfits. While all impressive, most of it is the same thing you normally see: a Lara Croft here, a Mast...


No, that is not a Photoshop. That is King Nintendo 64. Hail to the king, baby! During Otakon this past weekend, quite a number of attendees decided to cosplay, not as a particular anime or videogame character, but rather as a...


The Halo Spartan cosplay was in full force thanks to the Halo 4 panel that took place earlier today. Every outfit was unique in its own way too, from the guy with the skull mask to the Jorge cosplayer from Halo: Reach wieldin...


Comic-Con usually dominates with cosplay based on movies, TV shows, and of course, comics. The top three cosplay themes of the second day of Comic-Con seem to easily be Star Wars, Adventure Time, and surprisingly Avatar: The ...


San Diego Comic-Con has officially started and it's already jam packed full of people. I'm truly scared just how crowded this place will be once the weekend hits. Thankfully there's already plenty of great cosplayers to make ...


The official website for Tokyo Game Show 2012 went live earlier today. The September 20-23 event will take place at Makuhari Messe, as always, and it will be hot and muggy, as always, but there's one small change this year: N...


Brian Cargile is another talented young artist with an extreeeeemely specific area of expertise. As you can see, he specializes in masks: gas masks, goggles, full face masks, you name it. As a one-man costume design house cal...


PAX East is a beautiful event, and 99% of that is because of the people. The show is filled with humans taking a nonjudgmental look at who they wish they were, who they really are, and perhaps most importantly, at ...
