Greatest Game Cosplay Ever (This Week): Pokemon Gijinka, Jubilee, Bane + More

Unknown as Gyrados Gijinka
Anna Fischer

This week in the Greatest Game Cosplay Ever, we’re taking a look at a few more pieces of Pokemon gijinka and a handful of other costumes that beg to be seen. Have you ever gone around a convention and marveled at the number of people who are dressed sort of like non-human characters… but also not? That’s called gijinka, my friend! It’s the art of personifying non-human characters with dress or costumes.

Here we have some prime examples of how you can take some elements from a particular character and fashion a suit after it in order to make an instantly recognizable costume. Check them out below and don’t forget to appreciate the other costumes, like the incredibly-convincing take on Ira Gamagoori from ‘Kill La Kill’.

WANT TO CONTRIBUTE?

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 John-at-ArcadeSushi.com. 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 images were shot by Darshelle Stevens and Anna Fischer. Check the links to see more of their amazing art and to stay up-to-date on their latest shoots with some of the world’s premiere cosplayers.
