Then, I used some of the darker brown faux leather (from Ganondorf’s costume) and cut out basic boot shapes a bit larger than I needed (after measuring around my legs first). Here, it’s model Nico who’s doing the fancy-dressing, with their costume showcased in the above snapshot by Kenji Ono. I’ve been interested in comics, film, and animation for as long as I can remember and I was very heavily involved in the convention scene when I was in high school; mostly attending anime cons and doing a bit of light cosplaying. I will probably make a scene and start a rally though if I don’t get a spot in the contest though. Now, it’s hard to make yourself look like a duck, so what we love most about the trio’s outfits are that they’ve simplified them without compromising what makes the characters recognizable. Zenitsu shines in its orange coat with white details, which also make it look great. In the above photo by David Ngo, they wear yellow leggings to create the illusion of duck legs, color-coded tops and white wigs to create their looks. Smith chose to fancy dress as Stargazer — the Commander of the SilverHawks — and his costume is perfect, from the white shirt and red braces to the loose, brown tie and gold armor.

But due to their widespread fandom and instantly recognizable looks, it’s hardly shocking that some dedicated cosplayers fancy dress as them rather frequently. However, what we love about Josh Long’s costume here is that he recreated Egon Spengler’s look from animated series The Real Ghostbusters rather than later versions of the character that perhaps might have been a bit easier to fancy dress as. While his costume is fantastic, we really love Bowen’s cosplay because there’s a cause behind it too. Despite them talking, standing and acting like us, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles don’t resemble humans in the slightest when it comes to their visual appearance, which is why they’re arguably some of the hardest characters to cosplay as. Considering you only have to throw on a beige-colored jumpsuit to resemble any of its titular characters, Ghostbusters is, without question, one of the most popular franchises when it comes to cosplay.

This is beginner female cosplay 101. However, the physique is another matter entirely. However, satin is extensively used; as it is eye catching and shiny. The character’s telescoping lens eye gives him advanced vision and we love how detailed Smith’s replica of it is too. Although the Halloween holiday this year is notably different from years’ past as get togethers and hang outs are definitely off the table, many are still taking the opportunity to show love to their favorite characters and properties with costumes and cosplay. In the above photo, taken by Tony Julius Photography, he looks the spitting image of the animated antagonist but what we love most about his take is that he’s almost given it a realistic-looking makeover, adding dimension and shading to his muscles and skull face. His body is blue and muscular, cosplay suit while his face is just a yellow skull with burning red eyes; a look that would prove a challenge to achieve by even the most seasoned of cosplayers. The image above was taken by Santiago Photography and we appreciate the powerful way Jessie is posing in it — it really finishes the look off!

The artist parted her blonde wig the same exact way that the animated version of Princess Peach always does. It’s a godsend for cosplayers and a great way to check out what awesome creations people have made over the years! I’m probably most well knows for my original design Cheetara, but have several costumes coming that I feel have helped push my current skill level to the max. With a background in the automotive industry, I use my knowledge and skills and combine them with my new found hobby to assist in making my costumes. I know I’ve found my home. Let us know in the comments! Not us. this is still an impressive Wolverine cosplay gender bend. Based in La, Nico tends to favor Japanese-style cosplay looks. As all Masters of the Universe fans know, Skeletor is He-Man’s arch-nemesis and it’s safe to say, he looks pretty menacing — he is the most evil being on Eternia, after all. In this game, instead of Princess Peach being a damsel in distress like she usually is, Mario, Luigi, and the toads are the ones who have been kidnapped by Bowser and they need to be rescued instead. He teamed the locks with a pastel blue and pink jumpsuit, red glasses and an inquisitive expression; one that Spengler often wore himself due to being the brainiest of the bunch.
