If you have never played The Legend of Zelda, you won’t get this. In the game, Link (dude in green elf getup) is only allowed to cause harm to one non-aggressive beast: chickens. He’s allowed to swipe at them with his sword a few times, but after that all the chickens swarm in like a tornado and attack Link until he dies. This cosplayer is dedicated to the fact that he had to have his face planted on the cement for a good chunk of the day.
Jenkins, a.k.a The Griefer, is a character on South Park that first appeared in the season 10 episode, “Make Love, Not Warcraft” as a fat, lazy Warcraft-addicted guy who never got up from his computer. Since then he’s made appearances in a few other episodes. He even returned as a troll in this past season (20).
The guy who is cosplaying Jenkins in the above photo is Jarod, and he openly admits that his life is not that far off from Jenkins's.
This guy wins cosplay. His name is Ben Carpenter, and he is a disabled engineering student from Florida who is really into cosplay. He turned his wheelchair into one of the scenes from Mad Max where Mad Max is chained to Nux’s buggy. He’s super good at welding and took a lot of time and dedication to complete this costume. There’s an alternative version of this cosplay for conventions that have more room.
This person certainly knows how to make light of a difficult situation. This cosplayer had cancer in their senior year of high school, so they took advantage of their hair loss and decided to cosplay as Professor Quirrell/Voldemort from Harry Potter.
Since Peter Pan’s shadow tends to do its own thing, these two ladies didn’t have to be side by side during the whole convention. What are the odds that you have a friend the same height, weight and feminist haircut as you? Pretty good, I'd guess.
Yeah, sorry buddy. It took me a very long time to figure out that this guy was trying to be Arthurthe aardvark. In reality, he isn’t very convincing. At least he doesn’t mind being compared to Arthur, unlike this overly sensitive musician.
This is one of the best Game of Throne cosplays I’ve seen. It’s hard to convince people that you’re trying to be Tyrion Lannister if you’re over five-feet tall. It would have been even better if he could have covered up his actual shoes. I would have extended the cardboard box over them.
This is an absolutely amazing cosplay of Reinhardt from Overwatch. It actually won the $15,000 grand prize at TwitchCon. The man behind the costume is Chad Ban Wye. He makes props and set designs for a living, so he’s got the skill to put all of this together. What’s really an interesting touch is the LED light in Wye’s eye. In real life Wye is missing an eye so he was able to replace it with the small LED bulb.
I always thought that Beavis and Butthead was a “sticky-kid” cartoon. You know what I mean; like the kids who always had sticky hands in grade school would watch that show — that and Ren and Stimpy. But I eventually changed my mind and grew to appreciate the butthole humor. This guy must be wearing some prosthetics on his nose and chin though, cause that is just unnatural…unless you’re this guy.
Why does this look so familiar to you? Well, a few years back, a Spanish woman came under fire for her botched restoration of a fresco of Christ. It was truly, truly awful. But what a brilliant cosplay idea.
Ok, THIS is my favorite Game of Thrones cosplay. Well, it’s only half GOT, the other half is Disney. Do you get it? Jon Snow White. You know, Snow White and Jon Snow did have a lot of things in common. A stepmother who hated them and they also both died and came back to life.
And if you are about to scream "NO SPOILERS!" on either one of those character arcs...you've got bigger problems in life.
