On team B we have the deadly debutantes of Metal Gear and Metal Gear Solid, fearless, sexy and perfect to call when failure is not an option. [...]

Cosplay Wars: Lady Shepard vs. Lady Spartan

Since I began playing roleplaying games where you could choose a lady or a guy I liked picking a lady. Sure, looking at a female character for 40 plus hours was better than staring at a male one, but it was more than that. I always liked the strong female lead that was not a stereotype of a strong woman. I was glad that in the later Mass Effect games they gave more options for those who picked a female Shepard just as I liked the female character in Halo Reach. Now what was weird was playing a female in the original Everquest and being constantly hit on by creepy guys, but that story is for another day. [...]

Florida Supercon Cosplay 2013

We all had a great time at Florida Supercon through we agree that the show needs to move to a bigger area with more room and better parking. On Saturday it was so crazy packed it make it hard to do much of anything expect be knocked around in a crowd. However, there were a ton of great cosplayers there, here is just a small sample. [...]

Cosplay: The Ladies of Metal Slug

Fio is the only daughter of a wealthy Italian family. After she was born, her mother was unable to have any more children, making Fio the first heiress in the history of her family, as she had no older siblings. Throughout the generations, the Germi family has made a tradition of sending their eldest child into the military; Fio upholds this tradition willingly, though she has aspirations of becoming a doctor someday [...]

Gamescom Cosplay

This week we look at some excellent cosplay from Gamescom. These are various pictures from throughout the different years Gamescom has been around. What is Gamescom?

Cosplay: E3 2012

A buffet for the eye’s, ears and the mind. E3 is sensory overload on a massive scale. From the thousands of HDTV screens to the lovely booth babes, it is the place to be. Unfortunately, we did not make it there this year, but we are planning to make an appearance at ComicCon and Pax. For now, enjoy some images of Cosplayers and Booth babes. [...]

Cosplay: Superheroine

With outlets like Steam, Origin and Windows Marketplace there are less and less reasons to buy a game at a retailer. Sure, some people want the box or items inside be it manuals or a collector’s addition and that is the same as the comic book customer who wants to be there in the store picking out their comic, looking for new ones and talking shop with the people there. [...]

Cosplay: Counterattack

As far as Fappathon, I came up with the name after writing for SpoonCraft, which is a World of Warcraft and MMO news site. We used to laugh because so much traffic would come from posts where he would post pictures of hot women while some great news articles and editorials received little. We joked that they must log on at 3am for a Fapp session and from that, Fappathon was born. [...]

Cosplay: PAX East 2012

A super-sized edition of the cosplay this week featuring pictures of cosplays from Pax East 2012.

For now, enjoy the Fapp! [...]
