Everyone dressed as their favorite computer game & cartoon book characters for Heroes Con

I don't know half these characters, which is fine. I'm mostly perplexed as to why a bunch of these flamboyant, superhero-looking characters are carrying assault rifles. Why does Spawn need a gun? Lots of Deadpool takes, of c...

Deadpool does Fanime, and wins

I have to admit that I'm not a huge fan of Deadpool. It's not that I dislike his humor or self-aware, fourth-wall breaking schtick. Rather, it's that I feel too few people can actually utilize said schtick into anything inte...

It's the best cosplay from Katsucon 2014

Beat Down Boogie went to Katsucon 2014 and as always, have captured a ton of great cosplay on video. The usual mix is present. You got your Zelda cosplayers, a bunch of Master Chiefs, Mass Effect characters, and so on. My favorite moment is in the first part, with all those Elizabeths and Bookers from BioShock Infinite playing catch.

Hideo Kojima asked for it and he has received
by Wesley Ruscher

Back in September, Hideo Kojima tweeted that he was making Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain's Quiet "more erotic" to entice cosplay. He shared designs of the character's backside and almost seemed to taunt would-be cosplayers with claims that it may be too hard to pull off

Well meet cosplayer and UK Dtoider, Kelly Jean's take on the silent, but deadly sniper. As a big fan of the Metal Gear series -- just check out her fantastic EVA cosplay -- Jean wanted to take on the challenge of recreating the accuracy of an actual video game render. 

"I only know limited amounts about Quiet, as we all do, but since I am a fan of the franchise it's going to take quite a lot to disappoint me. Though I do hope she gets some trousers, she makes me feel pretty cold," Jean said.

Shot in a studio, to get the lighting right, and with some minimal editing Jean's creation of Quiet is eerily spot on, all the way down to the exact hand placements from the MGS V still. The costume came from mostly modified combat gear and has even caught the attention of Kojima himself

With Christmas right around the corner, Jean will also be selling prints of her 'Quiet' cosplay to raise money for Special Effect. All profits will go to the charity, which specializes in bringing the joy of gaming to those with disabilities. 

"I am currently in training to be a health care assistant and care worker. The girl I'm soon to be helping out is really bright and enjoys her games, but has severe physical disabilities, so I'm really passionate about this cause," Jean said.
