The 20 Funniest Cosplay Creations That Were Actually Ingenious

Cosplaying is becoming more and more popular each year, and with that popularity comes increased competition. It seems every Halloween or Comic-Con that comes around brings out even more inspired and incredibly well-realized cosplay ideas. And some of them are just too funny or smart to go unnoticed. So here are some of our favorites. Firstly, check out an inventive Indy action scene on the move…

Anyone can put on a leather jacket, grab a whip and call themselves Indy, but bringing your very own pursuing boulder along? Genius. Incidentally, is that a pre-weight loss Chris Pratt fueling rumors?

This finally put to rest that burning question: if Iron Man met Iron Man in battle, would the universe implode? It didn’t. Actually, between them they just straightened a few things out. Badum-tish.

What do you do if you suffer from muscular atrophy and you’re a fan of cosplay? You do what Benjamin Carpenter did and create an incredible costume that utilizes your wheelchair. His “Blood Bag Max” from Mad Max was a show stealer at Comic-Con.

That is a pretty spot on Peter Pan. Imagine the fun you could have getting into fights and freaking people out with this. But wait: what happens if the shadow gets a shadow? We’re not sure we’d be able to process that.

Ahh, we get it: he’s come as Jon Snow White. Everything was going great for him until someone came with the exact same costume plus an ice sword and a frosted crown and announced himself as Jon Snow Whitewalker. Damn story toppers.

Well, this looks like a Ferrell bunch of ladies ready to head out on the prowl. We imagine they all either smell like a black panther or rich mahogany and that they can play a mean jazz flute.

After years of being villainized by audiences who just couldn’t understand their point of view, Darth Vader and a Stormtrooper finally proved that they are the good guys. They really did the world a favor here.

This storm in a Beaker is one of the lesser known characters from Star Wars. He was killed off when Vader asked him who had allowed the droids to escape and he answered, “Me me me me.”

The costume here is pretty accurate, but what really impresses us is that it has been hand-knitted. As if it isn’t impressive enough to be a Jedi, do you really have to rub your godlike knitting skills in our faces too?

This Dr. Loveless from Wild Wild West is incredibly accurate. However, the most amazing thing about it is that someone would put so much effort into celebrating Wild Wild West. Man, that’s a bad film.

Officer: “Sir, do you know why we arrested you?”
Captain: “No eye,” *points at his eyepatch* “dea, officer. Haha!”
Officer: “This is not a laughing matter. You kept shouting ‘ARE YA READY KIDS?’ at children. Stop doing that.”

Oh Link, he comes to town to save the Princess Zelda, but boy does he get sidetracked by those chickens. This fantastic cosplay shows us one of the unlucky ones – pecked down in his prime.

Dad: “Sarah, can I go as a banana to this Comico thing?”
Sarah: “Ugh! It’s Comic-Con, Dad, and no. It has to be something like a superhero.”
Dad: “But I just bought this banana cos… I’ll think of something.”

It isn’t exactly the most flattering look, but this guy really nailed the World of Warcraft nerd from South Park. Do not mess with this guy, because his Paladin would destroy your puny Rogue.

It’s amazing what some creative use of perspective can add to a costume. Like, from this angle it looks as if Slimer is laughing, when he is in fact screaming due to the gigantic baby descending on the city.

What did Farmer Captain America say to the rest of his crew when he finally found the cattle they had lost?
“Avengers, ’ats ’em bulls.” Badum-tish.

This woman didn’t even know she was a sim until she tried to have a shower and was suddenly wearing this costume. Now she’s having an existential crisis and is stuck because someone moved a chair into her path.

This is absolutely adorable. Little Red Riding Hood is just heading out trick or treating and her Grandma has offered to keep her safe. That is so considera… WAIT, THAT’S NOT GRANDMA!

Kim Kardashian’s infamous bubble butt shot has now been immortalized in the world of cosplay too. Who wore it better? This guy looks to have a little more badunkadunk in the trunk, so we’re siding with him.

This guy looks so much like Beavis, it’s uncanny. He should be awarded with as much TP as he needs for the rest of his life. Incidentally, just out of shot there’s a Butthead telling him to shut up.
