Fun with Cosplay: Legend of Zelda Remix

Cosplay is seemingly continuing to grow more and more popular, and as the hobby attracts more people, it also furthers other hobbies. There are people who make cosplay props or outfits for a living, people who cosplay professionally, and photographers who capture the hard work of cosplayers. Pro photographers attend darn near every convention just to capture shots of costumes – some photographers focus their career on shooting cosplay while others consider it a weekend hobby. Following these photographers on social media is a fun way to experience multiple conventions vicariously.

Photography is all good and well, but there’s another trend on the rise: cosplay music videos. YouTubers like beatdownboogie (responsible for the above video) and Sneaky Zebra grab footage of cosplayers at conventions and cut them together beautifully. The above video is themed around Legend of Zelda costumes, but other videos feature all sorts of ensembles from every franchise imaginable. This approach allows you to see the costumes in motion and often allows for more depth and personality than still photos. I like to watch them whenever I need a boost of cosplay inspiration.
