To answer the obvious questions first:
What is cosplay? Cosplay is costumed roleplay. It is when you dress as a character from a TV show, film, manga, anime, comic books, video games, or book. But it is not just wearing a costume. Cosplayers actually become the character capturing the movements, mannerisms, voice, etc. Syfy even has a reality show based on cosplay called, Heroes of Cosplay that is now in their extended 1st season (season 1.5). It airs Tuesdays at 9/8c. I need to check it out myself. But that is not what I wanted to tell you about today. Today, I wanted to share with you the best cosplayer I have seen on the Interwebs to date. And if you do not believe me, share me with better cosplayers and we'll see. This cosplayer is a TRANSFORMER. He totally owns the character.
Am I right?!!! This cosplayer “transformed” into a car, rode around the sidewalk in a circle, and then they transformed back. I loved it. Amazing job cosplayer. This took place in Michigan and probably for the MotorCity ComicCon. The cosplayer is NOLATron and you should check out their Facebook page. (NOLATron is not connected to Transformers (movie/cartoon) so don't be confused). Kudos to you good NOLATron, you have brought smiles to the faces of more than just those kids with your cosplay. Keep up the great work.
