Melbourne Breaks The World Cosplay Record (And Solid Snake Dances To Dubstep)

In spite of the rain this weekend 470 cosplayers turned up in Federation Square, Melbourne, to help break the world record for 'largest crowd dressed as video game characters. 470 turned up, smashing the previous record of 425. Also — Solid Snake broke it down to the funkiest dubstep beats (is that how kids talk nowadays?)

AIE Melbourne, who helped organise the event, had over 600 registrations, but possible duplicates, or no-shows may have resulted in the number being slightly smaller than originally anticipated — but still... world record!

Also. Solid Snake busting out fresh moves to the bang boogie.

Amazing. Congrats to AIE and everyone involved!

If anyone has any awesome pics from the event, feel free to send them here and we'll do a gallery!


    Psst, Serrels. Check page one of TAY. I've got all the photos I took there.

      What's TAY?

        Don't worry, Serrels knows.

          Not cool Scree. TAY isn't a private club, anyone can jump in and enjoy talking amongst themselves with us.
          SRG, TAY is here:

            I couldn't find TAY alright? In fact I had to search for it, which I only did later.
            I'm sorry. /o\ I know it's not a private club.

      Just want to add, it's not official yet. We can still all be disqualified.

    That second video was just painful to watch... lol

      Yeah, they were all pretty bad. But what were they expecting?

        I don't know - but it was just embarrassing.

        The only thing worse than white people dancing is geeky white people dancing/raving :P

    Ooooooh. This would be why Mario and Luigi were sitting infront of me at the essendon game on the weekend...

    Aww no pics of the hot Lara?

    Why am I not surprised a Melbourne event like this wound up with Dub step and probable shuffling.

      I feel like a little piece of my gamer soul just died :(

    Great effort Scree, and everyone else who attended! \o/
