Remember that kid in high school who wore a cloak and carried a walking stick, and could often seen be rocking a top hat? Far from a “weirdo”, that gentlemen was a trendsetter; a hero – nay… a cosplayer.

In honor of that brave top-hatted man in all of our lives, I’ve compiled a selection of the internet’s best, brightest, boldest and bizarrest cosplay for your viewing pleasure in a lil’ piece we like to call Cosplay Friday.

 What ever happened to those brave souls willing to face the jeers of their peers, to rock their individuality? Let’s meet a few, shall we? I hope you brought your top hat (and if not, I’ve got a few spares. But clean em’ after using them, please. ‘Cause… gross).

Something’s up with deviantART’er Maho-Urei’s Jack cosplay; his weird freaky baby skeleton hand.

brave___merida_by_pugoffka_sama-d67bkvu

Brave is understatement for this Merida cosplay, because while she looks like she’s holding that hawk, it’s actually flying away with her.

homeland___ukraine_by_courtoonxiii-d67ov7zHetalia cosplay or Urban Outfitters ad?

attack_on_titan_by_vicissijuice-d67a9k0-1I think the coast is clear for these Attack on Titan cosplayers, unless there particular Titans are pretty small.

zero_by_maho_urei-d67juda

Awww, look at this cute Zero OH NO FREAKY BABY SKELETON HAND STRIKES AGAIN!!!!!

ice_queen___care_for_a_cup__by_kida_takashi-d67eu40This Ice Queen by Kida Takashi  is definitely impressive, but what’s more impressive is the fact that the ice cup isn’t melting.

assassin_and_templar_by_velasama14-d674mpo

This Assassins Creed cosplay shows there’s more than one way to take out a target. This, is the sexy way.

Sometimes no caption will suffice. Thanks for making my job easier, KimberlyStudio!

miku___i_ll_give_you_lots_of_laugh_by_vaxzone-d67j8ld

vaxzone’s Hatsune Miku should be more concerned that her friend is about to fall than with whatever is up in the sky.

sheryl_nome___macross_30_by_polycrystal-d67de0hSure, this is a sweet Macross cosplay, but inconsiderate of those who want to use those steps.
