2021 has been a MASSIVE year for cosplay. The response to the cosplayers and their amazing creations that we’ve covered has been overwhelming. From the surprisingly popular Lola Bunny to classic videogame characters like Bloodrayne and The Witcher, we’ve covered it all. And, you’re in luck! We’re going to keep doubling down on the cosplays you have been so excited to see.
Zackt as Cloud Strife from Final Fantasy VII
Videogame cosplays have been a favorite. Luckily there is a plethora of amazing video game cosplay content out in the world, and most of the year’s top-rated articles feature video game characters.
Anime and Comic characters also rank highly on the list, bringing stunning visuals and crazy proportions to the imagery.

This week, however, we’re featuring the cosplay artists who have most inspired me. It’s a completely subjective list of cosplayers whose work has not only popped off the page but has stuck with us throughout the year.
From Vampi-Saurus’ classic sci-fi-inspired works to Kinpatsu’s beautiful depiction of videogame heroes. The list also includes gorgeous anime characters to life by Zackt and Pugoffka. We have it all in this epic list of cosplayers!
