Haven’t you always dreamed of standing side by side with your favorite video game character? Wouldn’t you want to see this character in action, with your own eyes? Well, that can be done (ish)! Cosplayers from around the globe are constantly upping their game to become more and more like their favorite characters from their video games, and in the following list, you can see these guys shine in all of their splendor.
Paoletta P. Pasi, Liara from Mass Effect
The detail on the back of this person’s head is out of this world! I have no idea how they did it, but it looks absolutely amazing.
Videros, Adam Jensen from Deus Ex
Adam Jensen is a badass and this guy right here is a portraying him so well. With his future pants, his fancy jacket and his iconic sunglasses, he’s ready to knock some people out.
Inky Link, Dark Link from Legend of Zelda
Absolute darkness never looked so damn good. If you see this devil spawn on your path, it’s recommended that you run and cry for help.
Natasha “Purblind”, Jinx from League of Legends
This loose cannon looks like she’s ready to whip out her rocket launcher and wreak some havoc. But she’s allowed to be crazy! She’s got a doctor’s note.
Si Spencer, Commander Shepard from Mass Effect
Not only is this some sweet cosplaying right here, but this is Spencer’s first cosplay. Go ahead, slow clap it for this guy.
Eric Smith, Master Chief from Halo
Most Master Chief cosplays are decent at best, but this one takes the cake. It only takes the cake because this cosplayer actually bought this armor. Not making your own costume is sometimes looked down upon, but nevertheless, this is pretty sweet.
Lee “Fevereon”, Ezio Auditore da Firenze from Assassin’s Creed Revelations
So I know most people think of the younger Ezio, so it’s rare when you see someone pull off a phenomenal aged version of the character. This cosplayer did such an excellent job. It is so well done.
Giulio Nardozzi, Dante from DmC: Devil May Cry
Nardozzi might as well be Dante’s twin. With his rebellion at hand, he’s ready to cut up some demons and send them back from whence they came.
Ryan Rasmussen, Soldier from Team Fortress 2
This Soldier costume dominates every other cosplay. ‘Nuff said.
PixelNinja, Samus Aran from the Metroid series
Meg Turney, Lara Croft
I love video games so so much. They play such a huge role in my life, and seeing these artists bring my favorite characters to life makes me so damn happy. If only they could destroy demons or aliens or bandits, then that’d make them 200% more badass.
