Do You Prefer Your Cosplay In Slow Motion?

European geeks and gamers can wield a man-sized sword with the best of them. They look pretty sharp in a Zelda outfit. And they may be at their best when... everything they're doing... is happening... in... slow... motion.

Cosplay cinematographer and conventioneer Angel James de Ocampo is responsible for the above video of people in The Legend of Zelda, Mortal Kombat and Final Fantasy costumes - among other things - prancing about at half speed while looking fantastically clothed. Ocampo filmed the above footage at the Japan Expo 2011 in Paris, France, home of the European Cosplay Gathering, then set it to some Simple Plan.

Not a bad formula. Maybe we should make slo-mo cosplay footage the standard.

    That was pretty awesome!

    That was cool.

    I like this slow motion one better.

    Lightning especially!

    I like the morbidly obese Stryker cosplayer.. Im sure that in the game his belly doesnt wobble like that when he kicks.


    what a loser

      Really? Really? First of all, i wouldn't call him morbidly obese, far from it. Secondly why's he a loser? You're the one criticising someone you'll never meet, over the internet, for having fun and cosplaying.

      That comment just really annoyed me

      Now on the cosplays, hot damn, i wish i had the skills and dedication to make these sort of costumes, i especially liked the zelda and peter pan casts, and the judge,

    That's some of the best cosplay I've seen :D

    Why did Master Chief have such a puny sword lol

    Wow, that judge costume...
