cosplay-friday-featuredWith all this talk about meteor showers and asteroids, you’d think the whole world has gone star-crazy. You see, I’m crazy for stars, but not the kind in the sky; I’m talking about the stars of cosplay, of course!

It’s with that in mind that we proudly present this week’s edition of Cosplay Friday, all the best, brightest and most bizarre cosplays from the around the web, compiled into one nifty post. You don’t even need a telescope (take that, outer-space!).

This Cat-Woman cosplay is so fantastic, that I’m not sure if this is actually a cosplay, or just a still of Michelle Pfeiffer circa ’89.

This Evangelion group shot is one of my favorite cosplays ever. SO SHINY!

This is either a fun Loki cosplay, or a very confused and lost extreme sports enthusiast.

Denmark is such a drama queen. (Hetalia cosplay)

Sure, the Final Fantasy series of games are groundbreaking and legendary, but maybe their best long lasting legacy is all this wonderful cosplay!

I always knew qualifying for the Olympics was tough, but jeez, Lara… take a break.
