A Gallery of the Most Accurate Female Video Game Costumes

Alright, I’ve seen so many amazing examples of cosplay over the last year or two, I decided to put some of them into one master post. But as I don’t want an endlessly long gallery, I tried to restrict it with a few basic criteria: video game related and female. Any complaints?

As you’ll see in my title, this is not the “Hottest Video Game Cosplayers” as has been done (probably by us), but the “Most Accurate.” As it so happens, the two often go hand in hand, as there are very few female characters in games that anyone would consider unattractive. I picked each of these girls because even though many have tried to portray these specific characters, it takes a very specific look, and a hell of a talented costume designer to make sure they’re the absolute best, which I consider these selections to be. A professional photographer doesn’t hurt either.

Some of these we’ve featured here before with their own galleries, some are new finds I hadn’t see until today. I tried to cover every major video game female that came to mind, with a few supporting characters to boot, and if I missed one in particular let me know, and I’ll start a hunt.
