Halo Cosplay event at Comic-Con
Check out the greatest cosplay event at Comic-Con 2014, the Halo Cosplay meet up!
Those were some really great looking sets of armor. That centerpiece Master Chief looked absolutely professional!
From the quality and quantity of the outfits, I thought they were professional models hired by 343i. After watching the video, you can tell that it's probably not the case as there definitely is a difference in the quality of the outfits.
With that said, I think a number of these people spent a good amount of money on these costumes. Some of the helmets and one or two of the armors look professionally made. The standout for me was Cortana though. She didn't drop a ton of money. Latex body suit, painted blue with some stenciling, painted latex stockings, and high heels (so that it looks like she's floating!) It probably cost her $100 all in all, while some of these probably cost several thousand.
were did they get the costumes?!?!. They were AWESOME. If they made them, they are extremely talented
The UNSC Marine cosplay didn't look any familiar to the actual one. But the Master Chief looked awesome along with the ODSTs.
they seem to just be awkwardly standing there throughout the video. dont really look like they were enjoying themselves.
cortana looked pretty good though.
Nice. PS Gamespot stop this new switching to the next video the second the one your watching has ended. Its really annoying.
@guydude3412 A lot of people make their own, but there are also a lot of people making them to order, especially helmets.
@rjh_24 The F%$ is wrong with you?
@rjh_24 let me get this straight
You are on a video game website and trying to insult people who have fairly decent cosplays by calling them "poor nerds".
Did your mother drop you as a child?
@quicktim3 They're outside, in costumes that get hot, in the sun, during summer. You can only look so good doing that, especially if you're not a "professional" cosplayer who's good at acting. It would look just as awkward if they "posed and smiled" for the entire duration of the filming too. What you're seeing is just people "standing there", doesn't mean they don't like it.
@magicalcrash91 "Great article, I learned a lot after reading. "
if you're going to advertise at least post your "copy paste" somewhere where it makes sense lol
@strigon04 they get more revenue that way, with the ads on the page and maybe if you don't back it will play another video ad.
@strigon04 Couldn't agree more. Please even if its some intern who deals with this upload. Mention it to your superior :O
@quicktim3 @strigon04 I don't know if that's the direct reason, but you can bet it has something to do with traffic and money certainly :). And yeah, it's not going to go away even if loads of commenters hate it :).
As with all complaints, it's important to remember that Gamespot is big, and so the people that participate in comments and such are actually not the core audience, but rather a probably tiny minority. Heck, I wonder if most users are even registered, probably not and that's probably the way it is on most big internet sites.
@rjh_24 the irony in this is that you consider the difference a negative meaning yet you're part of the same community as those cosplayers. People like you have been robbing self-esteem in the video game community for years.
