Anyone can slap together a leotard, a cardboard shield and a rubber sword, but these people take it to the top level.

Holy damn Marcus Fenix definitely deserves the number one spot and I think the "demon-possessed contacts" make him look more realistic.

Devil Jin is very nice :) Those wings are awesome. I have a soft spot for Nero but that guy doesn`t have the build to pull it off.

The gears of war guy, dark link, nightmare, and samus were awesome, and I loved the Sam Fisher just cause Splinter Cell is my favourite game series.

OK, so `cosplay` means "costume-play", right? So what exactly do these people "play" while in their costumes?

That last guy is Ikkaku from Bleach in Bankai form. Not that I read Bleach or anything.

These are all amazing. I always commend cos-players who take the time and energy to make/buy these costumes.

I think those Helgast costumes are official, and the BoS Knight with the Mini Gun was the best version of it i`ve seen

I dunno, those pyramid heads need to be a tad grungier and more bloody.
But overall... I love good cosplayers.

Altair was amazing IMO. He had everything down to the design on the short sword hilt. Someone needs to do an article on how to make this stuff.

the ????? is Ikkaku Madarame from the popular Anime series Bleach. The giant sword(s) is his Bankai Release. ~p.s. i-a-b, don`t kill me b/c I`m an anime nerd.
