Verily, the mind doth boggle . . .
I haven't encountered much in the way of 'cosplay', where individuals dress up (sometimes very elaborately) in imitation of favorite film, TV or comic-book characters. After seeing IO9's two part photo essay on 'The Most Amazing Cosplay from Wondercon', I have to simultaneously shudder at some of them, and take my hat off to others for their attention to detail.
Here are just four examples, two images out of the dozens in each article, to illustrate the lengths to which cosplayers will go. They've all been reduced in size to fit here.
Of course, some of the photographs illustrate the unfortunate reality that if one doesn't have the body to go with the costume, one really, really shouldn't wear it!
You'll find Part 1 here, and Part 2 here. Both make . . . interesting viewing.
