Cosplay is an art.
I know not everyone will agree with me on this but I think it really is an art form. It honestly isn’t all about dressing up. You not only have to do your makeup right but you also have to make sure you bring the character to life. And by bringing the character to life, I mean acting in a way that resembles the character in the movie. However, I have not even touched on the people who do take cosplay to the next level.
When people cosplay something or someone that is not entirely human. You will soon see what I am talking about. As people also managed to recreate the iron Giant perfectly. Sure, he is not as huge as in movies but that would be the next level. Then we also have Tigress from Kungfu panda. You can see what I am talking about for yourself by scrolling below. But be wary as you may never be able to see these characters the same way again.
#1 I wonder how he makes the iron Giant move.

Cosplay is actually quite complicated than it seems. I know some people just do their interpretation but these people have replicated the characters perfectly. And I can’t even imagine doing that much work creating something from scratch. It is quite clear that they didn’t just buy their costume from just a normal shop. So they either made it themselves or had it custom made which can also be quite expensive. And that is not even mentioning the wigs and the skill that is required for the face art to look authentic. All of that to say that these people did a great job.
#4 That is just straight-up creepy.
