Why hunt monsters with a sword when you can do it with a massive cosplay rifle?
We’ve seen some crazy trends in fashion come out of Japan, but this is definitely one of the most unusual yet.
This cosplayer makes female characters look stunning, and she also nails the pretty boy look too.
These images show why the popular cosplayer has become the face of Japanese high school girls around the nation.
It’s hard to believe this photo of a barista in a Michigan Starbucks is a real photograph of a real person, not an image created by the team at Square Enix.
Meet Enako, a cute and popular cosplayer who has all her fans buzzing recently with her latest photoshoot that shows off how well pink suits her.
After enjoying the relatively slow pace of Tokyo Game Show 2015 on the press days, we headed back at the weekend for the madness that is the public days. We had to fight our way through the crowds before we finally reached the outdoor cosplay area, where the weather was perfect for getting some great shots of the amazing outfits on show. While there were plenty of video game characters striking their poses, there were also familiar faces from anime and movies, so even if you’re not into gaming you might recognize some of them.
The level of detail in some of these home-made costumes is astounding, and there was a great mix of the sexy and the totally kick-ass. Join us after the jump for a selection of pics and video of our favourites.
No one likes to air their dirty laundry for all the world to see, and cosplayers, with their intricate and often home-made threads, can be especially sensitive when handing over their unusual wares to dry cleaners accustomed to dealing with more ‘ordinary’ customers.
Now cosplayers from Hokkaido to Okinawa can avoid judgemental glances at the local dry cleaners thanks to a special online service that caters exclusively to their needs. From professional cleaning to costume storage, this is the type of support every cosplay-loving individual has ever dreamed of!
