Whatever their reasons may be – whether it’s a hobby, or just plain attention-seeking, cosplayers make for great eye candy. Sometimes they are hilariously and unintentionally awful, sometimes they are hot as hell. Sometimes they are just plain amazing. Here are the 9 most amazing examples of video game cosplay we’ve come across:
01) Jensen from Deus Ex
The artist says that this is his “take” on Jensen from Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and calls her “FEM EX”. Whatever you want to call her, she looks hot, and the photography is fantastic.
02) Miranda from Mass Effect
03) Lara Croft from Tomb Raider
There are approximately 9 billion pictures out there on the internets of Lara Croft Cosplay. What sets this apart is the effort they took in making this a realistic portrayal of Lara, rappelling down a waterfall of all places. Awesome!
04) Poison from Final Fight
People tend to bring up the fact that Poison was actually born a male, and a lot of guys find that icky. Personally, I don’t care whether she was born a male, female, dog, or robot.. she’s fricken hot! Pretty sure this model is all woman though.
05) Dark Link from Zelda II
Believe it or not, dudes can make some pretty cool cosplay as well! Unlike the women however, the more covered up they are, the better the costume usually is. This guy portrays Dark Link, the evil doppelganger from Zelda 2. He does have a more modern shield, and I’m sure someone will correct me and tell me he’s from Super Smash Bros. or something stupid like that.
06) Bayonetta from Bayonetta
Bayonetta takes just about every fantasy had by every Forever Alone gamer/pervert out there, and combines her into one sadistic, sexy librarian. A very nice portrayal here, even if she isn’t using her hair as a thong.
07) Raiden from Metal Gear Solid 4
08) Asuka from Neon Genesis Evangelion
Before you lodge a complaint, there are plenty of Neon Genesis Evangelion video games. To tell you the truth, I would have posted this regardless. Because.. well.. DAT ASUKA
