We've got another round of the best cosplay this side of the imaginary world in which all of our favorite fictional characters live. While costumes and props are an important part of cosplay, one can never neglect that all-too-important feature that completes every costume: the hair!

Below are some examples of some finely-coifed wigs and hair that help bring a costume to an unexpected heights of awesomeness. Because we all know that Cloud Strife's hair requires, like, expert-level styling. Check out the gallery and start messing with your own 'do!


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 shots were taken by Joseph Chi Lin. Follow the link to see more of his work and to follow up on his adventures in photography!
