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:
