What could be more exciting than playing your favorite video games? Bringing the experience to life by cosplaying them, of course. Through the art of cosplay, fans can take the joy that comes with living vicariously through one's gaming avatar and let their creativity run wild. The hobby allows them to express themselves by giving them the option to recreate outfits accurately or even customize them as they see fit.

We here at Arcade Sushi love seeing great cosplay, and we recently found ourselves inspired by our sister site, Comics Alliance, to feature cosplayers in the same weekly fashion as they do. So, as a tribute to them and all the great cosplayers and photogs out there, we've rounded up some of the Greatest Game Cosplay Ever (This Week).


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.

Check out these choice cosplay photos, all shot by the talented Darshelle Stevens. Visit her site to see more of her work, or become a fan on Facebook!
