Photographer Antti Karppinen had one goal during a recent trip to Cardiff Film and Comic Con 2015 in Wales—celebrate the cosplayers.

“Two days straight, over 2000 pictures, over 200 different characters. Just amazing. And all this just as my own project and giving back to these guys that truly deserve all the attention possible. Without them these events would be basically nothing.”

The results are simply stunning. Check out more examples after the break…

When cosplayer Kendall Bailey decided to cosplay Maleficent, she didn’t mess around. She made this entire cosplay from scratch, including making the ear and cheek prosthetics, sculpting the horns, sewing the dress, and making the leather strapping. The wings are sculpted feathers cast in latex with smaller real feathers and the result is simply stunning.

admiral-ackbunny

It’s a Frap!

At Star Wars Celebration the creative cosplay is always most impressive, but we think Admiral Ackbunny totally wins the Internet. What’s more, this busty Mon Calamari babe was part of an awesome group cosplay called Star Wars Bunnies. The ears, tails, and corsets are all fantastic.

Costume Design: Castle Corsetry

Model: Jenny Newman

Body Paint: European Body Art & Daniela Bernotas

Check out more pics of the admiral as well as the entire group after the break.

This little 3-year-old is Parker and he’s becoming quite the cosplay pro. So far, we’ve seen him as Finn, Tony Stark, and a ridiculously cute Link. Now he’s Daredevil from the new Netflix series.

He’s way too little to be watching the show, but he’s seen a couple of fight scenes and the trailer so he knows that Daredevil is a good guy who fights the bad guys. Credit for this goes to his Dad, John of City Light Cosplay, who is a huge fan of the series and photographs all his son’s cosplay.

In an effort that spanned the globe, cosplayers gathered to set a Guinness World Record for the largest gathering of people dressed as DC Comics Superheroes. The event took place over 24-hours with thousand dressing up to be a part of the record. Fans from United States, Brazil, Australia, and more all set up events in their own countries to make the day a success.

Darth Hound [Cosplay]

Fashionably Geek reader David B. swapped Vader’s helmet and gloves for the Hound’s helm and metal gauntlets. I wouldn’t want to cross this guy in any universe.

This Clone Wars Darth Maul worn by Justin McQueede at Star Wars Celebration is amazing. He also caught the eye of Ray Park (the actual Darth Maul) who has asked him to appear with him at the con. My favorite part is the special “stab” saber.
