The Best Cosplay Of 2014

The Best Cosplay Of 2014

As cosplay continues to explode in popularity, I feel like rounding up the “best” cosplay in the world for the year is a task that’s almost impossible. But whatever, that’s not going to stop me from trying.

2014 was a big year for cosplay, at least in terms of this site. We opened up our own cosplay sub-site. Me and Brian wrote a book about cosplay. And we featured more shots (and videos) on Kotaku than ever before, as cons across the world saw ever-increasing numbers of cosplayers in attendance, fuelled by a community that’s about as friendly and welcoming as any you’ll find on the internet (or, for that matter, in the real world).

Below, then, are my attempts at wrangling together a “best in 2014” collection. If you’ve found something truly amazing that we’ve missed or overlooked, drop it in the comments below and I’ll take a look, see if it warrants inclusion!

  • That Garrus cosplay looks so good that I’m amazed that someone actually managed to create such an impressive costume.

  • That is some pretty good cosplay, saw some amazing ones at Brisbane Supanova, wish I could have gone both days though. Didn’t see any posts on here about it for a change, usually there is something, more often than not a video. Anyone here attend BrisNova?

    Garrus almost looks like a painting, wonder if they used worbla for it, I need to get my hands on some of that stuff, the paint work is wonderful

  • I’m just glad they aren’t all heavily photoshopped like so many other cosplay pics are that usually feature

  • Lololol Prince. Also Krang is great. The Dark Souls look pretty impressive too. Just need to like, photoshop hell into the background.

  • Is that robot in the background of the Metal Gear shot a costume? Pretty damn impressive if it is. Or even if not, really.
