Cosplay offers a bit of escape from the norm for those who engage in the hobby/lifestyle. For the rest of us, it's just really cool to see our favorite characters seemingly come to life. This week we have more of a hodge podge of the greatest costumes we've seen that really help make it seem as if our favorite video game and pop culture heroes and heroines broke through the fourth wall and into our world. Check out the gallery below for more.
