Cosplay is way fans pay homage to their favorite anime, video game or movie characters. It is short for costume role-playing. In today?s time, cosplay or cosplaying has become more advanced and awesome to the point of surpassing the original version – fooling everyone at first glance. Some of these cosplayers have mad photography and editing skills too! Here?s a list of epic cosplay?that did better than the original.
#1 Final Fantasy is a fantasy media / video game franchise created by Hironobu Sakaguchi, and developed and owned by Square Enix. It is one of the most popular fantasy rpg of all time.
Yes this is cosplay! Looks like a cut-scene from the game right?
#2 Resident Evil is an action-horror game created by Capcom. Due to its popularity and success, Resident Evil was adapted to a live-action movie series starring Milla Jovovich.
This is just sick and amazing at the same time. You could see what this guy had to go through to create this as well as get IN the costume itself. Standing beside a Birkin would surely be terrifying.
#3 Star Wars by George Lucas is one of the biggest and longest running space film series having debuted its first installment in 1977. ?Its latest film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is set to premiere this year in December.
Issabel Cosplay designed her own original Sith costume inspired by a fanart of Asajj Ventress.
Can’t believe your eyes??They are not the real thing! These are cosplayers, Julian Checkley and Annas Black, as Darth Malgus and Asajj Ventress.
#4 Silent Hill is a Japanese survival horror franchise created by Keiichiro Toyama. Its success allowed the title to branch out from a series of video games to live-action, horror movies.
This is so freakingly good it can actually be mistaken as a clip from the movie! But no, this photo is one of horror cosplay photographer, Mike Rollerson?s creations.
Again, not part of the movie or game. Silent Hill cosplay by anima89. So surreal it will give you nightmares.
These photos are examples of how much artistry, hard work, and skills are needed to pull off an exemplary, and most epic cosplay of all time. Cosplay is an art that deserves more recognition. To some it might be a hobby but to others, it is a lifestyle and a way to express their creativity and individuality.
