The Tokyo Game Show opened up to the general public this Saturday, and we were right there in the midst of the crowds of attendees from all over the world.
With the event spread across the huge Makuhari Messe exhibition centre it was quite a workout getting from one end to the other while navigating meandering queues of gamers waiting for a chance to play exclusive demos, but somehow we managed it and lived to tell the tale.
While there were plenty of gorgeous booth babes around inside, I headed out to the cosplay area where amateur enthusiasts show off their home-made outfits, and often plenty of skin too.
▼ This is what most of the cosplay area looks like, with the cosplayers buried somewhere in the middle there.
There were so many fantastic cosplays on show and, while I tried to capture as many as possible, what follows is just a small sample of the fabulous guys and girls who were there, completely in-character from head to toe.
▼ Michelangelo could have walked right off the 90s live action movie set.
▼ Hey, it’s Bayonetta!
▼ Ridiculously kawaii Chibiusa.
▼ This outfit was really creative, with the armor all being fashioned out of cardboard proving that you don’t need to spend a fortune on special gear to make a fantastic cosplay.
▼ This TGS featured some of the most realistic Pokémon cosplay I’ve ever seen.
▼ After I’d snapped the lovely Super Sonico cosplayer above, I wormed my way out of the fray and took one final look behind me…
▼ Love Livers at the beach.
▼ It’s a bit early for Christmas, but we’ll let her off.
▼ This Asuka cosplayer had her expressions and poses down to a T.
See you next year, cosplayers!
