Perfect Ten: Amazing MMO cosplay

I have nothing but deep respect for cosplayers because on two levels they are performing activities that I cannot. First of all, they put together incredible outfits that must take hours and hours of painstaking research and skill (not to mention money!) to assemble. And second, they go out in public and subject themselves to a nonstop barrage of stares and pictures.

As with any other geeky field, MMOs have attracted their fair share of cosplayers over the years. Today we’re going to look at 10 amazing outfits and the people who both put them together and wore them proudly.

1. Firefall battleframe

Miss_Rosi has many pictures of this incredible getup on her instagram account, including a pre-assembly shot.

2. World of Warcraft Dwarf

This detailed getup at Gamescom this year won one tough-looking “Dwarf” a trip to BlizzCon.

3. EverQuest Froglok

Darth Vader and Yoda knew that they were outmatched the second this Fan Faire ’08 Froglok stepped into the room.

4. Wizard101 Fire Elf and Fire Mage

Who’s cuter: a little boy in a Fire Elf outfit or a little boy in a Fire Mage costume? Don’t make us choose!

5. Guild Wars 2 Norn

Professional artist Kamui takes her cosplay very seriously and even posts a schedule of her convention appearances around the world.

6. RuneScape monsters

RuneFest has its own costume contest, and some fans sacrifice mobility and air conditioned comfort to look this impressive.

7. Star Trek Online officer

Star Trek Online has costumes that often are so much cooler than seen in the TV shows and movies. Here one fans dons his to pilot the Enterprise-D.

8. Star Citizen recruitment ad

Who says that you can only cosplay for games that have been released? Gamer Rayzer is all about recruiting for the UEE Navy with his fake posters.

9. Warhammer Online Dark Elf Sorceress

And who says you can’t enjoy some cosplay of an MMO that has since departed us? Don’t mess with this one — “dark” is in her name, after all.

10. Star Wars: The Old Republic’s Satele Shan

The Force is strong with this cosplayer indeed. Her outfit is impressive, most impressive.

Which of all these did you think was the best? Sound off in the comments!

Everyone likes a good list, and we are no different! Perfect Ten takes an MMO topic and divvies it up into 10 delicious, entertaining, and often informative segments for your snacking pleasure.

DamnDirtyApe Gottphoenix Yes, a professionally made suit with a hired professional model stuck inside of it is NOT the same as fan cosplay and never really should be listed beside it.  Sure, it can look cool, but it’s not the same thing at all.

I know I’m a little beholden to League for obvious reasons but, seriously, this reverse Tibbers:

FOR SHAME!

Siphaed Lemme help you. In Trek he’s a command officer. Or in STO he would be a tactical officer. The last person who dies.

DamnDirtyApe Gottphoenix Well, sooner or later every hobby turns into a job. And these are the best kind of jobs lol…

Gottphoenix It really is amazing, but it really stretches the definition of cosplay by being pretty much done entirely by professionals (according to an article about it on Kotaku).

Some great ones here, but I can’t stop laughing at the huge, fat, sad, small-head Yoda.   :)

Karl_Hungus i’ll make you feel even older.  My niece has a box in her room with stuff in it and the box is labeled “COSPLAY”.   Her friends have one too.   And they don’t think there’s anything weird about it.
