    13 1

    More often than not cosplayers have to choose between form and function in their projects – sacrificing mobility for accuracy, or vice versa. Zerina’s hard work and prototyping resulted in a fantastic marriage of both.

  • CosBlog # 84: Cassiopeia by Jerry Polence

    12

    Every once in a while I look at a piece of character art and come to the conclusion that there isn’t a way to faithfully manifest it into reality. I thought Cassiopeia was a character that transcended into movie magic territory, but Jerry Polence and her cosplay crew proved me widely wrong.

    I’m a big fan of intricate armor builds, and Kevin’s costume blew me away when I spotted it at GamesCom this past year. Even more impressive is that it marked his very first time cosplaying. I’d say you’re off to a great start, Kevin.

  • CosBlog #79: Miranda Lawson by Lindze

    68

    [Genuine enthusiasm] I’m fairly certain my jaw hit the floor when I first saw Lindze as Miranda Lawson. Tough brunettes hold a special place in my heart, and the brash and bada** Mass Effect bombshell is near the top of my favorites list.

  • CosBlog #78: Meru by Dessi Desu

    36

    When I spotted Dessi Desu from across the hotel lobby at Katsucon – dressed as a character from one of my favorite RPGs – it was admiration at first sight. While it’s impossible not to marvel at the grandeur of Dragoon armor, I’m personally ecstatic to see Meru’s regular form brought to life.
