The 20 Worst Cosplay Photos

The 20 Worst Cosplay Photos

Cosplay – or, as the Japanese call it, “cosplay,” is one of the most worrying new hobbies to hit America’s youth since the invention of the Juggalo. In short, it’s the practice of dressing up like a fictional character and showing off to a crowd of disinterested or horrified lookie-loos. While there are certainly some cosplayers who can pull it off, there’s also an army of wanna-bes who fail horribly and often. What follows are 20 of the most hilariously wrong cosplay pics ever.

Pink Catgirl Worst Cosplay

Let’s lead off with a classic. This poor dumb girl really thought she was going to wow the crowd with her oh-so-kawaii anime catgirl outfit. Unfortunately, she just looks like a stripper in Iowa who fell into a pile of fiberglass insulation.

Worst Cosplay Dot Hack

Gender-bending is a common activity among cosplay weeaboos. So is giant cardboard swordplay and virginity.

Worst Cosplay Luigi Princess

Okay, if I was Mario and I got through 8 worlds of pure aggravating BS to find that waiting for me, I’d probably pawn her off on my kid brother too. Oof. I’d rather get blown by a Piranha Plant.

Worst Cosplay Pyramid Head

How better to display your senses-shattering recreation of Silent Hill 2’s fearsome killer Pyramid Head than to pose in your Grandma’s foyer next to a barely-working Dyson?

Worst Cosplay Mega Man

This guy is just so serious about this whole procedure. Look at him! He’s going to kill somebody to get their special weapon one of these days.

  1. The fourth and fifth last Cosplays were Kakashi Hatake and Rock Lee respectively. The Rock Lee cosplayer was the most accurate cosplay I’ve seen in this list. So before you compile a ‘Fail Cosplay’ list, actually compare the cosplay with a still of the character before you decide if it is a fail or not.
    Kind regards,

  2. Even if these peoples cosplays arnt the best per say or accurate. YOU my friend have no right to say these hurtful, rude, and mean comments. In case you dont know these people have feelings. Last i recall the main point of cosplay is to dress up as your favorite character AND have fun . Not everyone can pull a dead on cosplay of that character but that Dosent mean you should trash them that harshly. You have issues in all honestly i can already imagine the kind of person you are based on your hateful bully like comments on these poor people. They wanna cosplay let them who gives a damn as well on weight. Having fun is the most important thing. They dont need your kind of negativity

  3. the third last cosplay was jiraiya from naruto and his cosplay isnt all thatbad respectively. This article was outright cruel
