Here at Arcade Sushi, we love video games, animation and cosplay. And what's better than those three? When they combine to form an amazing amalgam of awesomesauce. This week in the Greatest Game Cosplay Ever, we're looking at a few choice photographers and their favorite subjects as they portray different characters across the mediums of video games and animation. You'll see favorites from Japanese anime like Belldandy or Revy as well as some anime-esque video game characters like Yuna and Rikku from the Final Fantasy X games. Check them all out in the gallery below.


Are you a cosplayer or a cosplay photographer? Maybe you’re both! If you have a particular cosplay or portfolio you’d like us to check out, please submit a link to Additionally, if there are any cosplayers or photographers that we’ve highlighted that wish their works to be removed, please reach out to let us know.

All shots were taken by the great photographers Hidirico Photography and Affliction Cosplay Photography. Visit their sites to show them some love and become a fan of their other work.
