Bringing Mass Effect To Life Before Your Very Eyes

Most of these "Fancy Pants" galleries we run are full of great photos of people in great costumes, but a few of this week's pictures go the extra mile.

Leading the charge is this Aria T'Loak, which is not just an amazing piece of costume play, but an amazing choice of character. Joining her this week is Squall, Tifa, Left 4 Dead 2's Ellis and a very shiny Raiden from Metal Gear Solid 4.


Fancy Pants is a look at the world of cosplay (costume play), where people dress up as their favourite video game characters. Sometimes it works! Sometimes it...yeah.

    Is there a reason why the males who do this calibre of cosplay are either morbidly obese or frighteningly thin? There's no body middle ground when it comes to making awesome quality costumes.

    Asians don't count towards being good at cosplay. Everyone knows they're just too damn good at it. =P
    They're culture is more accepting of it first off (and I mean in the younger generations at least) and second, well, they're densely populated enough that people are able to actually have stores dedicated to anime/game cosplaying that actually do well. I mean a real store too, not online like the majority of USA stores are. This is a country where you can go to a city and see people walking around in cosplay outfits out on the street (though I don't think its extremely common if I remember correctly).

    The Ellis is hot :)
    Otherwise, these are all very very good. I love Aria, and the link one is awesome too.
