It's that magical time of the week again, when we take a look at some choice examples of cosplay. We love that moment of excitement and wonder when you're just walking down the hall of a convention and spot a cosplayer who's rocking a spot-on cosplay based on one of your favorite characters. Then, of course, the pictures and selfies ensue. Just remember to ask them for permission! They may have worked hard to show off their skills and creativity, but that doesn't give you an open invitation to be creepy. With that said, we can understand how some folk might get hyped when they see a great cosplay. Why, just take a look at the awesome examples below!

WANT TO CONTRIBUTE?

Are you a cosplayer or a cosplay photographer? Maybe you’re both! If you have a particular cosplay or portfolio you’d like us to check out, please submit a link to John-at-ArcadeSushi.com. Additionally, if there are any cosplayers or photographers that we’ve highlighted that wish their works to be removed, please reach out to let us know.

All images were shot by Darshelle Stevens and Martin Wong. Click their names to head to their sites and see even more of their fantastic work.
