This is Tomoaki Kohguchi. He’s a 64-year old consultant from Hiroshima, Japan who also happens to have a passion for cosplay. His birthday was yesterday, and a little cosplay is a great way to celebrate.
Head after the break to see more pictures.
Remember when we posted this utterly adorable little boy with his dachshund cosplaying as Han and Chewie? It turns out that picture was part of a bigger photo shoot done by Rocío Preciado of Cuije Photo in Hermosillo, Mexico. She got her nephews all dressed up as Han Solo and Darth Vader as a way to celebrate her dachshund’s 12th birthday.
What a cool lady.
Check out more pictures and a video after the break.
You know you have a true best friend when he dresses up as a Jedi just to make you feel better.
Check out more selfless bro-ism after the break…
Wonder Woman costumes are popular, but I love calling out the ones that are exceptionally well done. Cosplayer Eve Beauregard has knocked it out of the park with her take on the ensemble. She embodies the Amazonian princess and rocks this version of Diana’s superhero costume. The weathering on the silver armor is just right, and I’ve fallen for the cape with the star-shaped clasp. Just gorgeous.

What would you do if you had a chance meeting with Professor Stephen Hawking in the UK? Well, if you’re 29-year old Chris Hallam, you take the opportunity to invite him to come along on your Bananaman themed bachelor party pub crawl.
While Hawking politely declined the offer (his son, who was with him, was in favor of the idea apparently), he did pose for this internet-ready picture with Chris and his Bananamen buddies.
What if Merida existed in the modern day? She might carry a crossbow and rock a kilt. That’s how cosplayer Zoisite-Virupaksha sees her. Her take on the wild ginger from Brave has the princess riding a motorcycle and donning a leather jacket and boots. I think it’s perfect. I love the inclusion of the crossbow and that the t-shirt has the familiar bear emblem from the necklace Queen Elinor gave to Merida.

See more of the series and her more traditional Merida costume after the break.
Princess Peach always struck me as tougher than she looked, and I think this warrior take on her costume is perfect. Cosplayer Alexia Jean Grey loves Super Smash Bros Melee, and it was her inspiration for this fierce yet sexy costume. She created everything but the corset (made by Castle Corsetry) from Worbla, and she did an amazing job.

Legend of Zelda meet Assassin’s Creed. You’re going to get along splendidly because look at this costume. This cosplayer (identity unknown) took Link’s green attire and mashed it with Ezio’s assassin wardrobe perfectly. I love the bombs and ocarina hanging from the belt, but my favorite small touch is the carefully placed Triforce on the hood. Bravo.
