Gamelyn Games, the publisher behind the "Tiny Epic" series of games, has a great mascot. If you are lucky enough to go to a large gaming convention like Origins or Gen Con, chances are you'll see the Gamelyn Knight at the Gamelyn Games booth. This is one fine looking cosplay. I applaud the level of detail and would love to see more companies create logos that they can bring to life. Do you know any other companies that cosplay?
Jon Snow, everyone's favorite Crow, from the book series A Song of Fire and Ice. Will you follow the King of the North? Who is your favorite Game of Thrones character? Were you able to catch the season finale on HBO?
Waiting for the next season is always so painful. Thankfully, there are plenty of fine cosplayers out there, like this gentleman cosplaying as Jon Snow, that I can get my Game of Thrones fix even in the off season.
And if you haven't played the A Game of...
Today's featured cosplay is a whole group of Marvel cosplayers. I absolutely love group cosplay, there is just something about seeing so many iconic characters in one place. This shot was taken many years ago (2013) at Dragon Con in Atlanta. This is actually a small group shot as it had been raining and most of the cosplayers stayed inside; understandably, they probably didn't want to get their outfits wet.
Can you name everyone shown in the image? I'm fairly on top of...
Sauron is one of the best bad guys ever created. As the main antagonist of J. R. R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, this evil necromancer is responsible for much doom and destruction.
This cosplay of Sauron looks amazing. Sadly, I had just switched my camera to manual mode so I could snap some pics in one of the dimly lit inner rooms of Gen Con and I forgot adjust the settings when I saw this awesome cosplayer.
Who is your favorite character in the LotR?
The Metal Gear series of video games is widely popular and combines a great story with stunning visuals and awesome action to deliver a solid, memorable gaming experience. Here we see a cosplay of Raiden from Metal Gear Solid. Fantastic!
Who is your favorite character from Metal Gear? Solid Snake is a popular answer. Gray Fox, the cyborg ninja, also comes to mind.
The Lego Batman video game was the first Lego game to use voice acting. It also implemented an open world environment. The Lego games rekindled my love for all things Lego, kudos to their marketing/development team, and I now own quite a few Lego Marvel mini figs. Fun fact: Lego is the world's largest tire manufacturer.
Our board game related cosplay of the day comes from the Soda Pop Miniatures booth at Gen Con. Marie-Claude Bourbonnais cosplays as Cerci from the Relic Knights game, whom I believe is a character based on Marie-Claude. If this is true, does that mean she's cosplaying as herself? Mind = blown.
Cosplayer: Marie-Claude Bourbonnais @mcbourbonnais1

Today's cosplay comes to us from Gen Con by way of the Krosmaster Arena booth. Cosplayer Toni Darling becomes Queen of the Tofus. A new standalone game in the Krosmaster series, Krosmaster Quest, is now available. It looks interesting, as the fully painted minis and 3D terrain is appealing. The idea of questing together, instead of battling each other, has me intrigued as well. With several expansions for Krosmaster already on the market, maybe now is a good time to s...
The aliens in Chaosmos are just plain weird, and rightly so, being partially based on aliens encountered in the book "Interstellar Pig". The fact that one of those aliens, Vroon the Adventurer, has been brought to life is amazing. Chaosmos is a space exploration themed game where players control a unique alien race in search of the Ovoid, the only item in existence that will save you when the universe collapses in on itself. A hidden information game that contains comba...
Today's featured cosplay comes to us from Gen Con 2014. This is a fantastic cosplay of the lady on the Coup box cover (sorry I don't know her name! I don't know the cosplayer's name either, so sorry!). Set in a dystopian future, Coup is produced by Indie Boards & Cards and is a hidden identity and bluffing game.
That outfit is amazing and she looks like she stepped right off of the box cover. For those that might not know, Gen Con is the largest board game focuse...
