Otaku House Competition

I recently entered a "Cosplay Idol" competition put on by Otaku House. Long, long ago, my picture got lost in the shuffle of endless amazing cosplays. Despite that sad truth, I have been really enjoying the talent that has been showcased in this contest! There are a lot of amazing pictures. Of course I'm a little biased, and tend to spend my "likes" on the ones that say they're homemade, but no matter what, most of these entries legit look the parts they are playing. I've decided to post links to some of my favorite contestants. Since there are hundreds and hundreds of them, It's difficult to even pick which ones I want to post, but I'll do my best to narrow them down. I'm only going include my favorites from the first 200 entries. I'll post the rest later, so be watching for them. Beware, not only will I be posting pictures I think are awesome, I will also be shamelessly promoting my friends who have entered the competition. So vote for them or die!

I'll include the link to the page where their entries are located, so that if you have facebook you can vote for them by clicking "like" on Otaku House's page, then "like" the picture you are voting for.

This Jenova is a buddy of mine who attends local cons often, and makes bomb awesome hats.

LinkinSpirit is one of my favorite Link cosplayers, ever. Fullstop.

Melanie, another con-going friend of mine, is the most convincing Winry I have ever seen!

As far as Gijinka's go, this really is one of the best human representations of Red XIII I've seen in a while.

Hannah makes a super cute sexy-jutsu Naruto

That's a good looking Greed!

Raiden from Metal Gear Solid. I love armored cosplays.

An amazing Assassin's Creed cosplay, with some good looking leather work.

Not familiar with what this is from (Granado Espada) But this outfit is downright amazing.

Midna from Twilight Princess, Just WOW. I love this costume.

Another friend of mine, with a great homemade Roy Mustang uniform

Hm, that Bellatrix looks familiar, I wonder who she is!?

WoW cosplay. No really, Wow.

Medusa from Petshop of Horrors. PSOH is not something that gets cosplayed too often, but it should be. This is superb.

Props on the Prop, Dark Knight Rikku. Amazing job.

I'm really impressed with some of the cosplayers representing North America in this competition, there really is a lot of talent around our country. May the best one win!

Phew! Glad that's over. Oh wait, it isn't even close. I'll be going through the other North American entries later, and I will post a blog about the next set of 200 and so on.
