Cosplay Highlights of the Year

Cosplay Highlights 2011 from Angel James de Ocampo on Vimeo.

We feature a lot of cosplay on the site here, but almost always it is in still photo form. Rarely does video seem necessary to capture a costume, but I’ve changed my mind now that I’ve seen Angel James de Ocampo’s cosplay highlights of the year video.

It’s a collection of some of the best costumes he came across during the year, and though I recognize almost none of them, all are expertly made and modeled, and the video is a combination of the bizarre and the beautiful. And Fall Out Boy. Sigh.

Take a look for yourself above, sorry if you’re non-US and can’t watch Vimeo for whatever stupid reason.

    Only recognized a few as well but the presentation was awesome and the music wasn’t even a bother as it was edited to fit the song smoothly instead of just placing it over the footage.

    Yea, don’t like fallout boy but the song worked really well. I knew about 1/3 of the costumes, but that’s only because I’ve seen a disgusting amount of anime.

    I’ve mentioned this before but “acksonl” on youtube has pretty good cosplay vids.
