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

    Loved Samus, Krang, and the Fire Emblem: Awakening cosplay.

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

    The Dark Souls one loses a bit of its impact by being shot in a car park...

    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.
