Cosplay Looks Better With GIFs

Cosplay Looks Better With GIFs

Katsucon is one of the biggest conventions on the cosplay circuit, and this year's show went down over the weekend in the US state of Maryland. Needless to say, there was excellent cosplay on show.

While photos are the regular way we take in an amazing outfit here at Kotaku, sometimes it takes video to really show off the detail (and movement) in a costume.

OTL Productions and MLZ Studios were there with cameras to capture the whole show, and have uploaded the results in this terrific video, some highlights from which you can see below.

    I think Serrels is probably just semi chubbed with how angry we get about the GIF's. He just watches these articles get published and then is like "That is not enough, this is not gonna cause enough aneurysms", hits a button and it becomes GIF's galore.

      Fortunately not, although it seems like the the US folks love their outdated, bloated, inefficient and bandwith-hungry formats. Even some articles that Serrels publishes that make it over to the US site has someone whack an arbitrary gif in.

      At least we don't have to deal with shitposting gifs in the comments..yet. Is it some reasoning that animated thumbs get a better clicktrough or is a Gawker requirement? These have to die though, its getting worse than Tumblr!

        I'd bet a million bucks that it's about clickthroughs. The question is, is it the gifs or the subject matter that's getting the interest?

    So, kotaku just discovered the 20+ year old animated gif tech? It's annoying as 5 scream the product name type ads on tv at the same time really.
