I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: cosplayers with dozens of costumes in their portfolio impress me. Since I’m a somewhat inept and slow-going crafter, I’m always dazzled to see how prolific some makers are. Effekted Cosplay most definitely sits in that category. He has a list on his Facebook page showing the costumes he’s donned since 2011–it’s long. I stopped counting after 25. He’s been inspired by comics, video games, films, and television–seriously, his cosplay history is all about variety and he looks right at home in every ensemble. Look:

Effekted’s Hook and Rufio look amazing, but please scroll down to the gallery below to check out more of his work. You’ll find Rinzler from Tron: Legacy, Batman, Raiden from Metal Gear Rising, and more. Then, follow Effekted’s latest and greatest on ye olde Facebook (visit the “About” tab to see that costume list I mentioned) and Instagram.
Do you cosplay or take pictures of cosplayers? Then I would like to see your portfolio so we can talk about highlighting you in a future Cosplay Friday gallery. If you’re interested, please go ahead and email me at email@example.com with photos you’d like me to feature. Be sure to provide credits for the cosplayers or photographers for each image because credits are cool–bonus points if you include links to their Facebook pages or websites. And though I wish I knew all the geek things, I definitely don’t, so please let me know who or what is being cosplayed–I can usually figure it out, but I’ll take all the help I can get.
