Twelve Costumes That Completely Nail It [Featured]


Sometimes cosplayers knock it out of the park and manage to look just like the characters they’re cosplaying as. I’ve seen some costumes done so perfectly I’ve had to stop to do a double take. Resembling a character physically can help, but it’s also possible to get really close with the right makeup, outfit, and wigs. These costumes hit every mark.
