10 better-than-Hollywood video game cosplayers

Cosplay — short for “costume play,” in which fans create and wear costumes based on fictional characters — still happily occupies its attention-getting, superfan niche. But the hobby has evolved in recent years from something you might throw together for Halloween into a full-on artistic endeavor. Some companies now even hire “amateur” cosplayers to represent their top-tier characters at professional trade shows. (Culture, Mass Effect 3, StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm, Tomb Raider)

Man, these definitely don't look like regular ol' cosplay. I wonder how much some of these outfits cost!

Fans can always produce better cosplay then hollywood simply because fans actually care about detail. Hollywood doesn't care if the subject remains accurate to its base material, they just want to make it appeal to the widest audience possible.

Incredible attention to detail, but it begs the question: How much did these costumes set them back?

I like the Garus costume from Mass Effet and the girl who dressed up as Elizabeth from BioShock Infinte wow she looks alot like the game character. I must say all these costumes look great specially Big Daddy.
