  • Blog Post: CosBlog #93: Mr. Freeze By Russell Pohl

    Russell Pohl’s Mr. Freeze costume is a great exercise in getting creative with found objects while on a short deadline.

  • Blog Post: CosBlog #92: Zelda By Rikku Grape

    I find that cosplayers motivated by the idea of a challenge most often rise to the occasion. Rikku Grape picked Princess Zelda not only because she’s a fan of the franchise, but also because she knew it would sharpen skills in the process. Her successful tribute to Hyrule’s leading lady convinces... More
  • Blog Post: CosBlog #91: Demon Hunter By Its Raining Neon

    Its Raining Neon’s Demon Hunter costume turns heads whenever she enters a room. That’s what happened when I first spotted her at Katsucon in 2012, easily a cosplay highlight of the entire show. What I didn’t know at the time is that this was her first foray into armor fabrication, making... More
  • Blog Post: CosBlog #90: Naked Snake By RBF Productions

    While military costumes are a great place for new cosplayers to get their feet wet, Rick of RBF Productions proves that the devil is in the details when it comes to successful soldiers.

    As a bit of a Gears fan myself (understatement), I was blown away by each and every build Cos.n.Fx has seen to fruition. Unable to choose just one costume for the blog, I’m highlighting the lot, including the two smallest, most adorable Gears you’ll ever see. Their impressive projects warrant... More
  • Blog Post: CosBlog #88: She-Kratos By Lady Lemon Cosplay

    Gender-bending an iconic character allows cosplayers creative freedoms not afforded when accuracy is the ultimate goal.

  • Blog Post: CosBlog # 86: Diablo Monk Concept by Zerina

    I can vouch for how impressive Zerina’s female monk from Diablo 3 is – having been in the audience when she won the costume contest at Blizzcon in 2010. More often than not cosplayers have to choose between form and function in their projects – sacrificing mobility for accuracy, or... More
  • Blog Post: CosBlog # 85: Mini Chief by Randall Ng

    I’ve got a massive soft spot for pint-sized cosplay, meaning Mini Chief wreaked havoc on my heart. Created by Randall Ng for his son, Paxton compensates for his short stature with boatloads of style and a juice box or two. I can’t wait to see what this father/son duo comes up with next! Who...

  • Blog Post: CosBlog # 84: Cassiopeia by Jerry Polence

    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. The... More
  • Blog Post: CosBlog # 83: Issac Clarke by Kevin Leab Thong

  • Blog Post: CosBlog # 80: Anya Stroud by Pixel Kitty

    Natalie – also known as Pixel Kitty – and I have a common bond in that we both were inspired to cosplay as Anya when we first set eyes on GI’s Gears of War 3 cover. In a serendipitous turn of events, Natalie was hired as a Marketing Assistant at Epic Games not long afterwords, and as... More
  • Blog Post: CosBlog #79: Miranda Lawson by Lindze

    [Genuine enthusiasm] I’m fairly certain my jaw hit the floor when I first saw Lindze as Miranda Lawson.

  • Blog Post: CosBlog #78: Meru by Dessi Desu

    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... More
  • Blog Post: CosBlog # 76: Flemeth by Amazon Mandy
