Some may speculate that it's the abs that make or break a Gladiolus cosplay - and let's face it, Italian cosplayer Leon Chiro sure fits the bill. Definitely daunting, but not impossible for most, especially when you throw a little costume makeup into the mix.
Besides, it's that sword that really makes an impression, isn't it? If you can manage that, it doesn't matter the build - you've got a pretty good thing going.
