Welcome back my loyal readers! Today we are going to discuss the top 6 best(worst) cosplay fails of all time. Yes that’s right I said 6. Everyone always does a top 5 or 10 list but I’m doing 6 because I can.
Discussing cosplay fails is always a fun time, this is mainly because as much as we laugh with these people, most of them are doing it for the attention and don’t mind us poking fun. We’ve all seen the really large guy who cosplays a female character and know he is obviously doing it for the giggles. What about the people who actually take their time and make an effort at putting a costume together and it just bombs. We get to laugh with them too and there’s no shame in that because it’s a learning process and they will get better. I want to clarify that we are not here to bully but we are here to have a little laugh so let’s get to it shall we?
Cosplay Fails Top 6
6. My little pony
Do you guys know what a brony is? This is the definition from whatisabrony.com, “A brony is a fan of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic that is outside the target demographic of little girls. Most bronies are friendly teenagers and young adults that simply aren’t afraid to admit that they enjoy a show which is innocent, colorful, and funny.” I had no idea that bronies existed and that’s cool if that’s their thing. Bronies unite! I guess..?? Anyhow, this brony is definitely on point with the colors of the My Little Pony Character, the problem is the scary bank robber horse mask they have on.
5. Blanka, Street Fighter
Street Fighter II was the best thing to happen to kids when I was growing up in South Korea. I mean we used to sit at the arcade and put our 100 won up(equivalent to 25 cents) and wait for our turn to play. After the long and strenuous wait, we hope to kick some butt so we didn’t have to get back in line again. It was an addictive vicious cycle. I think the hair is the main thing throwing off the Blanka cosplay here.
4. Wolverine, X-Men
Waking up Saturday mornings just to catch the X-Men cartoons was worth all of the annoying assignments from school during the week. Banana Wolverine is awesome!
3. Sailor Moon
I get it. People will laugh and hot girls at the cons will wanna take pictures with you. I am pretty sure the goal was accomplished with this cosplay. Now of course every guy would love to see a blonde bombshell cosplay this Sailor Moon character but we’ll take the laughs as a consolation prize.
2. Iron Man
This Iron Man cosplay had me dying. You have to love the creativity of the cosplay though. I mean the Christmas gift ribbon is the best part which clearly resembles the light energy building up in Iron Man’s hand.
- Optimus Prime
The guy in this cosplay actually put in effort so lets give credit where credit it due. Cosplaying transformers is extremely hard and unless you have a Hollywood budget the out come will be just like the one above. He should have cosplayed Ken Bone.
