Right now, you can bet that all your local cosplayers are putting the finishing touches on their costumes. And those costumes are going to look great! Except don’t tell the cosplayer that, because they’ll be wracked with self-doubt about that one detail that they missed, and oh crap please don’t let anyone notice that the nose on my costume is out of proportion. Ahem, anyway, there was more cosplay on the weekend at the Russian convention known as Igromir. And it also looked superb Check it out!

In case you’re unfamiliar with it, Igromir is the biggest gaming convention in all of Russia. Last weekend, the event attracted a crowd that was estimated to be between 140 000 and 150 000 people strong. Naturally, a large percentage of those folks were dressed like their gaming and various other assorted pop culture heroes:

If we have any Russian readers who reckon I’ve missed out any photo credits, please do let me know. You can also find a ton more photos, right here.

I’ve got a few small finsihing touches to put on my own costume for rAge this weekend. It’s essentially blackening up my eyes, to make them stand out more in my Batman cowl. Geoff has offered to help, by “telling me twice”. See you guys this weekend, on a very hot and humid Saturday where I will most likely sweat myself to death inside of all that rubber!

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

  • If you need a hand with those finishing touches ask JJ? Also, dem skills! Think I need to move to Russia…

    Having to click so many pictures that open new windows sucks donkey balls!

    If only there was some technology to view website pictures in sequence, some sort of display or show where one can possibly advance to see the next picture or slide…. yes, some sort of show of picture slides… If only this technology existed…..

    • Kensei Seraph – Staff

      I’m sure someone will be able to develop something like this… eventually… in a few decades time.

      • Sageville

        We can only dream….

    • I can’t figure out why the gallery isn’t actually doing that. It’s set to have that option you treasure so much, but it refuses to implement it. Sorry.

      • Sageville

        What is this galley that you speak of, sounds amazing.
