Yes we have all seen the horrid photos of when cosplaying, which is dressing up to match an anime or game character, goes wrong and results in an image burned into your brain you can’t forget. It’s always a very traumatic event when you see a 150kg Misty or ugly-as-sin Konata. Not to point any fingers but these generally tend to be american people and end up looking like this

However that said, I thought it would be a pleasant change to see what happens when both american, and japanese cosplay succeeds…

Oh and please correct me if any of the characters names I use are wrong, i’m doing my best to remember them all since its 2am right now. Oh and also i’ll update this again tomorrow since imageshack is being annoying and won’t let me edit this with more photos i’ve found. Buu

EDIT – Ok so it’s the next morning and like I said, i’m going to update this with some more awesome cosplay i’ve managed to find.

Asura – Soul Eater

Maka – Soul Eater

Krona – Soul Eater

Rena – Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni

Knives and Vash – Trigun

Terry – Fatal Fury series

Samus Aran, Varia Suit – Metroid series 

Walter C. Dornez – Hellsing

Alphonse Elric – Full Metal Alchemist

Lina Inverse – Slayers series

Samus Aran Zero Suit – Metroid series

Riku – Final Fantasy X / X-2

Android 18 – Dragon Ball Z

Vivi – Final Fantasy 9

Vincent – Final Fantasy 7

Night Elf – Warcraft 3 / World of Warcraft

Iori – SNK series

And so this brings me to the single, greatest act of cosplay ever photographed in the history of anime and game conventions. I have no clue who this is, but it is simply stunning to see someone who could be an identical twin to their game counterpart. Wether or not she was employed by Squaresoft or not I don’t know, and quite frankly I don’t care. 

Tifa – Final Fantasy Advent Children version

So I think that most would agree that these are pretty awesome and capture the characters pretty damn well. Now if only I could find that Auron photo that is on my pc somewhere…
