Cosplay! I love it, and so do plenty of other folks. While our local talent is growing each and every year, you can’t beat our American brethren when it comes to dressing up, and they’ve got the various cons to prove it. Such as the recently held Katsucon.
Bioware is showing a bunch of community love at the moment. I'll show you the new screenshot we got via twitter, but I'm most impressed by the character models they're releasing on their blog - all in the name of cosplayers.
You know how much we love cosplay around here, and every year I just get so damn happy to see our local scene get more and more creative with their efforts. But if you want your cosplay to last, you’re going to need some digital help. And nothing captures a great costume and pose like some brilliant photography.
Cape Town, you get a bum deal when it comes to conventions. rAge is exclusive to Johannesburg and the less said about last year’s Comic Con fiasco, the better. What you do get however, is UCON. And it all kicks off in March.
When you think of of cosplay one of the top events on the planet is definitely Comic Con in San Diego, however Comic Con happens in quite a few places, just not Cape Town. And today we bring you the amazing cosplay of… Birmingham in the UK?
As a cosplay fan, I’ve seen plenty of great costumes out there. But you see, there’s a key to really making your costume shine. You’ve got to own your character. And by being properly dedicated to the comic book hero or villain you’re playing, you can be...unstoppable Just like this Juggernaut cosplayer.
There’s a ton of love for all things Blizzard at Blizzcon, and nothing sums that up better than seeing those fans create some extraordinary costumes. From Night Elves to Terran Spectres, there was a wide variety of cosplay present. And it was all so damn cool.
Ah, it seems like just yesterday we were discussing the sexist design of "Quiet" from Metal Gear Solid V. He even threw down the gauntlet saying it may not be 'cosplayable'. Well, Kelly Jean picked up that gauntlet.
Videogame and cosplay culture are intertwined, so you’ll often see cosplay galleries or videos here – but you’ve never seen anything quite like this. This time-lapse video by Geek Fever was compiled from thousands of still photographs take at the MCM London Comic Con last month.
One of these days, I’m going to suit up and head to an American convention. There’s plenty to choose from, such as the San Diego and New York Comic Cons, but Dragon Con is where I want to be. That’s where the best of the best gather to wear outrageous pop culture outfits. Don’t believe me? Then here’s forty minutes of proof.
I mentioned yesterday how I was knocked for a six by the level of cosplay professionalism at rAge. I think everyone who took part, honestly deserves a round of applause and it was fantastic seeing that appreciation from the rAge crowds. Unfortunately with an event this big, a few bad apples are bound to spoil the fun.
Your wallet is empty, your feet have blisters and your body odour is most likely strong enough to knock a donkey over. Yep, sounds like another rAge weekend has come and gone. I had a blast this year, running around in my Ghostbuster outfit. But hells bells, there was some damn good cosplay on display.
