The work of Shayna Polomchak, a.k.a. Termina Cosplay, first came to my attention when she cosplayed as Scyther. She crafted beautiful, massive wings for the costume and turned the bug-like Pokémon into a fierce ensemble. Her skills aren't limited to adapting pocket monster looks into stylish costumes; she also rocks at replicating existing looks. Exhibit A: her Samus Aran Zero Suit from Metroid.

She nailed this Witcher 3 Triss costume, too.

Scroll on down to the gallery below to view more of Shayna's work. You'll find a couple of characters from Fairy Tail, a Japanese manga series, and her takes on a couple of Pokémon monsters. See her vast cosplay portfolio by following her on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook (she has killer Midna and Cia costumes from Legend of Zelda titles).
Do you cosplay or take photographs of cosplayers? Then I want to see your work so we can talk about highlighting your creations in a future Cosplay Friday gallery. If you're interested, please get in touch with me at [email protected] and send hi-res photos you'd like me to feature. Be sure to provide credits for the cosplayers or photographers for each image because giving credit is good manners—bonus points if you include links to relevant Facebook pages or websites. Though I wish I knew all the geek franchises, I don't, so please let me know who or what is being cosplayed.
