    Lady Lemon Cosplay opted for a female version of the demigod Kratos, carefully contemplating how to make her mark on the design while retaining his brutal spirit. The risk, particularly in embracing a wild updo, paid off immensely.

    Final Fantasy VIII summon Siren is a franchise favorite of mine, so I was ecstatic to see such a fantastic interpretation of the guardian brought to life.

    Wanting to take on a challenge grotesque in nature, this trio of cosplayers opted to avoid common Silent Hill foes for more obscure enemies.

    The fact that every Shepard is unique to his or her creator gives a bit of flexibility when it comes to cosplay and special ownership over the final result.

    Cosplayer Konoe is a fan of fighting games, and you can tell by the caliber of her work on Seung Mina’s SCIII costume (pun intended).
