Gaming Cosplay has come a long way! People compete year by year with new styles, materials and much more. While it’s hard to pick favs we have gone through and grabbed some absolute highlights!
1. The Evil FX Designs Incredibly Realistic Halo 4 Didact Costume
Evil FX has designed a halo 4 costume like never before, Master Chief’s enemy the Didact.
“His process of creating his costumes is long and laborious and begins with a full-body cast of the person who will wear it. Once the cast is complete, it is then used to make a clay mold, which is painstakingly sculpted to the desired shape and design. The clay design is then used to make a ‘negative mold’ using 100% silicon with a clay mold overlay to make the individual pieces of the costume.”
2. HDC cosplay’s Mystical Final Fantasy Black Mage
While HDC Cosplay has been in the cosplay industry for a while now, and if you are a cosplay fan you have most likely come accross their past designs. This FF Black Mage tops it off though with its attention to detail cloth style design and mystical vibe.
3. Viejospellejos’s Accurate Link Cosplay
It’s no doubt cosplayers try to be realistic, but sometimes it seems the level of realism is too much to even compete with… like come on. A CHICKEN!
4. Cooladn’s Bioshock Big Daddy
Yes I know what you are about to ask… he could walk: https://vimeo.com/15211535

5. *Distorted Pyro Sound*
