An Awesome Gallery of Nightcrawler Cosplay


It’s time for another cosplay gallery here at Unreality.  If you haven’t noticed, we’re big fans.  I like to laugh at the crappy and pathetic attempts, but I also admire the attention to detail and complex efforts of the more, um, successful cosplayers.

I read a lot of X-Men comics when I was younger, and to be honest, I never gave too much thought to Kurt Wagner, better known as Nightcrawler.  It wasn’t until seeing Alan Cumming portray the teleporting mutant in X2: X-Men United that I realized what a cool look he had.  It’s somewhat ironic that a blue, devilish-looking mutant would actually look cooler on the big screen than in the pages of a comic book; it almost always seems to be the opposite with a lot of non-human characters.  The costume and makeup department of X2 did an outstanding job on Nightcrawler, but what about the thousands of cosplayers out there?  Afterthe jump, take a look at their efforts in an awesome gallery of Nightcrawler cosplay.

Great detail on the face:


Even though this Nightcrawler may be missing a chromosome, he’s in the company of Lara Croft:


I would have gone with a lighter shade of blue.  Also, can you do something about that bulge?:


There’s something a bit too emo about this Nightcrawler.  He reminds me of that old wrestler, Raven:


If Rorschach and Nightcrawler had a child:


Wow.  Maybe this coplayer should have started drinking after applying makeup:


Not bad, but reminds me of Hellboy for some reason:


Nightcrawler chillin’ with Rogue and some common folk:


Taking the name quite literally.  I love the hands and feet:


Nightcrawler done got a sex change!:


Here with Mystique, Nightcrawler has a great, great face.  Love the detail:


Is this Zombie Nightcrawler?  He looks a bit like Michael Jackson in Thriller:


Not to be a dick, but is this Nightcrawler a man or woman.  It’s like Nightcrawler is the Peter Pan of cosplay:


This guy wins.  He’s even got lenses:

    Sexually ambiguous Nightcrawler: I’m putting my money on it being a lady. No visible (insert favorite breast euphemism), could just be the suit though. The nose is what really makes me think female. Look at it and then look at the girl next to her. That’s a she-nose.

    @ SirEdward

    I was leaning that way, too. There’s also the absence of a, uh, bulge.

    And that black purse she’s wearing is kind of a clue, as well. 😉

    Darn. I wish I could have made it out to to this list! :-)
