Excellent Cosplay Heats Up Summertime In Japan

Excellent Cosplay Heats Up Summertime In Japan

It’s August! That means two things: First, the weather is hot; second, it’s time for some great Comic Market cosplay.

The bi-annual event is underway, with cosplayers showing off their creative creations. This year’s stuff is particularly great! The photos are terrific, too.

Comiket 96 runs from August 9 to August 12 and is being held at Tokyo Big Sight.

Cosplaying Haikyuu’s Nishinoya May Have Improved My Volleyball Skills

Cosplaying Haikyuu’s Nishinoya May Have Improved My Volleyball Skills

This weekend, I attended Blerdcon, a convention in Washington, D.C., aimed at black nerds of all ilks. There were beautiful black people everywhere, and it was absolutely amazing. The cosplay was wildly creative, spanning anime, video games, movies, TV, and even commercials. I saw the character Jaws from the Burger King Kids Club ads, as well as my childhood hero, the superhero Blankman. I...

Destiny Cosplayer Grinds Endlessly To Create Perfect Outfit

<i>Destiny </i>Cosplayer Grinds Endlessly To Create Perfect Outfit

Imagine if cosplay was more like Destiny. You find just the right fabric, walk to the cashier, pay your money...and open the bag to find a packet of nails.

Lucky it’s not, then, and Italian cosplayer Fred Props was able to actually make the stuff he wanted for this amazing Hunter outfit.

You should check out his Facebook page for more, because he’s also got some fantastic Halo and Skyrim...

We’ve seen how there are cosplay events in Japan with real explosions and fire to make photos dramatic. But, as pointed out on 2ch, there is also a studio in Sapporo that has a water room, so cosplayers can get drenched and splashed for pics.

The basement of Studio Parfait houses a “water...

Dishonored's Seedier Side Brought To Life Through Cosplay

<i>Dishonored's</i> Seedier Side Brought To Life Through Cosplay

We’ve seen some top-shelf Dishonored cosplay on this site before , but it—and most other cosplay like it—tends to focus on the game’s main characters. People with expensive uniforms and high collars. Nobody ever spares a thought for the game’s less upstanding denizens.

One of the most enduring things about Dishonored is Viktor Antonov’s art...
