Take a look at some of the best cosplayers of Tokyo Game Show 2013.

While yesterday’s gallery offered you a glimpse into the game show itself, these pictures from Tokyo Game Show’s open-to-all “public days” are all about the cosplay. Japan is known for having a pretty dedicated cosplay scene, and the best of the best came out to play at TGS. Here’s a gallery of our favorite costumes. It is worth noting that TGS has very strict “prop” rules: no props longer than a certain length are allowed, which is why we are seeing some characters without their iconic weapons.

Let’s kick things off this not-so-dynamic duo.

Prepare for trouble.

Dragonball‘s popularity refuses to wane in Japan.

This Link had the full suite, including ocarina!

Not sure who this fabulous knight was, but he sure was fabulous!

Roshi and Roshi fuse to make, Mega-Pervert!

The Frieza from before gets in on the fusion action.

I felt sorry for the poor girl in this costume suffering under the hot Tokyo sun.

image

Just as good as Mama!

image

Morrigan is always a popular choice at Japanese conventions.

image

The trainer from Pokemon Black and White.

“Faith, right?”
“Wow! You guys actually know who I am?”
Mirror’s Edge is not very popular in Japan…

image

But Street Fighter certainly is!

image

Attack on Titan has become a very popular anime in Japan lately.

image

The Dragon’s Crown girls appear, though, not as “well-endowed” as their in-game counterparts.

image

This Blanka was my favorite Street Fighter cosplay.

image

Sora looks almost naked without his signature keyblade.

image

Pyramid Head and his entourage.

image

Kid Icarus‘s Pit.

image

Some kind of gimp Toad???

This Eva is a friend of mine! Check out her cosplay website here.

The best part about cosplaying Ryu is you can take it easy, just sit around and “meditate”, and people think you’re just in-character.

image

Indie games like Journey are having a surge in popularity in Japan.

image

Not sure who this cardboard robot was, but he was happy to pose for me.

image

“Hi Vega. Oh, I mean, uh, Balrog? Can I take your picture?”

image

Wookie or Call of Duty soldier in a ghillie suit?

image

Hiding in plain sight.

image

Separately these costumes aren’t too spectacular, but they make a great group shot.

image

Here come the obligatory Final Fantasy shots!

image

Can’t rightfully have a cosplay gallery without at least one Cloud.

image

There was a time when Naruto characters would make up the bulk of any Japanese con. This time, there was just this lonely little Naruto.

image

I have no objection to the new prosecutor in the upcoming Ace Attorney 5.

image

Last but certainly not least, it’s Taiko no Tatsujin!

So what do you guys think, who was best in show? Personally, my vote lies with the two Master Roshis!
