These 8 Cosplay Costumes May Prove to Be the Best Ones Ever – #8 is Just Love

While I’ve never had a go at cosplaying myself, I have to admit there’s a level of effort that goes into some of them that is nothing short of phenomenal. In an attempt to bring attention to some of the costumes that have really shown what can be done when you invest some time, I’ve compiled a list to show you exactly what I’m talking about.

Chun – Li

A staple in the Street Fighter series since the second installment, Chun-Li is known throughout the video gaming almost immediately. It would also seem that she has become a cosplay favourite, with some people taking it to another level of impressive.

American Dad

Whether or not American Dad has ever overtaken Family Guy in popularity is up for debate. That being said, there is no debate that this is one of the best costumes I’ve ever seen. Right down to the chin, this one gets down all the details.

The lumbering enemies with good intentions from the first two installments of the Bioshock series makes for a difficult and uncomfortable yet highly impressive costume. There’s been a few of these since the first game but only a couple have taken it to impressive heights.

Many people have cosplayed this character both in and out of the iconic suit, but this is probably the better of the two options. With the mechanical sheen given off by the costume, the entire thing looks impressively realistic.

Duke Nukem

After the release of Duke Nukem Forever, which was over a decade in the making and released to horrible reviews, the character has seen somewhat of a resurgence in popular culture. Above is a picture that highlights how cosplayers are taking notice.

Harley Quinn

Too many people are making costumes that mimic the more gritty Harley Quinn that is depicted in the new Arkham Games. This leaves behind the classic comic/television series Harley, which I think has a certain level of mystique lost by the former.

And with a classic Harley Quinn you’re going to need a classic Joker! There’s something absolutely chilling about that grin isn’t there? Perfect down to the hair flick, this guy gets the essence of the character just right through this costume.

I might be fairly bias adding this to the list but I have to say, there’s something equally cute and upsetting about this one. Based on the main character of Edmund McMillan’s game The Binding Of Issac, this is one for the game fans.

What are your thoughts on the art of cosplaying? Do you think it’s impressive how well these people can get their costume looking like the real thing or does it just make you want to tell the person to grow up? Sound off in the comments section below about what you think and your own cosplay experiences, both positive and negative.
