Rick and I are getting set to attend FanExpo in Toronto next month. It’s our first time attending, so we’re still debating whether to join in on the Cosplay fun or not. We’re not really bit cosplayers, so at best we could recycle our Scott and Ramona costumes *ajusts hipster glasses* from before the movie came out. But these amazing DIY 8-bit cosplay costumes have me thinking we could put together something pretty impressive without a major cash investment.
Inspired by ChozoBoy, DeviantArtist OrngeJuice created this 2D Link cosplay as a Halloween costume. The simple colour scheme gives it a charming Sweded sort of feel (and yes, I’m aware those are the colours used in the game, they just happen to be really close to the colour of cardboard).
Impressive Minecraft Cosplay from Anime North 2011. I love the fact that the dude is riding a pig. I think that’s all I’d do if I played Minecraft. Photo by Grayden Laing
And finally, for Rick, there’s Locke and Terra from FFVI. Apparently this pic was taken at Anime Matsuri 2012, but I couldn’t find the names of the cosplayers to credit them.
What do you think? Got any suggestions of what Rick and I should Cosplay?
