Fancy Pants: These Lightning Bolt Outfits Will Splice You In Half

Walk quietly and carry a very sharp sword. Oh, and wear a Cyborg Ninja suit. Raiden is one of Metal Gear's most iconic characters — and the star of the upcoming Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.

Recently, Kotaku had a chance to check out Revengeance, and the game is looking good. Know what else is looking good? All these folks who dressed up as Raiden.

This is "Who Wore It Best?", a look at who work it (here, Raiden) the best. It's like when celebrities wear the same outfits to awards shows — one of them pulls it off better.

All these cosplays are fine Raiden cosplays. And they do range over an array of Metal Gear games — there are even some female Raidens thrown in for good measure. So, I ask, which Raiden is best?

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.
