This was my fourth year attending the Too Many Games convention in Phoenixville, PA, and it’s seen quite a bit of growth over the years. One of the more noticeable changes is the increased number of attendees sporting cosplay from their favorite characters and games. So much so, in fact, that I thought it worthwhile to post a small gallery of just some of them here.
Take a gander! (No Deadpools – I promise!)
American McGee’s Alice is best Alice
These are surely the most striking visuals ever produced by the Game Boy Color
Tons of effort went into the details of this Princess Zelda cosplay from Breath of the Wild. The “Silent Princess” flowers are a great touch!
The ladder is a great touch and really sells this one. (Cosplay by Forgotten Legends Cosplay)
“You were almost a Jill sandwich!” said an annoying noob passing by.
There were several Splatoon-inspired cosplays this year, but this one was my personal favorite. (Cosplay by Cu.Meme)
“Glory to mankind!” Nier Automata was well-represented at Too Many Games
Killer pixel art space pirate from Nintendo’s Metroid. (Cosplay by Dan Cattell Art)
Let it Die in style! Even the glasses animated. This was fucking awesome.
It’s great when the little ones get in on the act, too, like this moonwalking Queen of Pop sporting her best Michael Jackson
Is it possible to get too much of Street Fighter’s Cammy, cosplay or otherwise? No. No it isn’t.
Probably my favorite from the show: Kazuma Kiryu from the Yakuza series showing off his karaoke talents
“Now that I’ve had my coffee, I’m ready to go play some arcade games!”
Fun fact: It was years before someone told me that Alucard was acutally “Dracula” spelled backwards. Nonetheless… “I’m interested in this.”
The succubus Morrigan Aensland from Capcom’s Darkstalkers series – and she owns it!
Dark Mickey Mouse sporting a Kingdom Hearts keyblade
We’ve all come upon a Spider-Man or two, but this was the first “Iron Spider” from Infinity War that I’ve seen seen
Daisy has been genetically spliced! (Cosplay by Madame Kurie Cosplay)
The effort and imagination that goes into some of these cosplay outfits is clearly evident. Here’s hoping for more next year!
