Cosplay Game Went from INSANE to HAXX Levels @ ESGS!

If the larger-than-life exhibit booths doesn’t get you in the mood to game then the amount and quality of cosplays seen at the recently concluded ESGS 2016 would surely do that. I have to say, I’ve been seen some amazing cosplays when I had the chance to cover a couple of local and international conventions but man, what we saw during ESGS 2016 takes the cake easy!

The level of detail poured into designing and fabricating the costumes were no short of amazing but what I love about what we saw this year is how each cosplayers truly tried to imbibe the spirit and character of who they’re portraying the point of ensuring their body type matches the original character they’re cosplaying.

But that Dhalsim, though!

And while these cosplayers have INSANE level of details and workmanship the ESGS 2016 Cosplay Competition showcased HAXX level of creativity.
