Exciting Cosplay Ideas For 2015

1 of 20

Hello folks! It's about that time of year again when we start prepping our ideas for our cosplay costumes for all the upcoming conventions, such as PAX South and as far ahead as NYCC. Here at GameSkinny, we want to assist you with sharing some great ideas to get those creative juices flowing.

First up is the upcoming release of Hyper Light Drifter by Heart Machine that was successfully funded on Kickstarter.

Next we have the character classes from Destiny by Bungie. The Titan, Warlock, and Hunter have so many shaders and armor in the game, that you could really come up with something unique.

Aurora from Child of Light by Ubisoft Montreal gives some great variations as she grows, that you can really make your costume something to remember!

The Raven Hunter from the greatly anticipated Bloodborne release by From Software and Sony Computer Entertainment is the stuff of nightmares. Think of the impressions you'll make as everyone stops to look!

Another idea from Bloodborne that I believe is worth checking out is the Bell Maiden. My goodness that just screams creative genius all over!

Want to really challenge your cosplay skills? How about this creature from the recent release Dragon Age Inquisition? Talk about a challenge and making a statement.

The Goliath monster from the upcoming Evolve release by Turtle Rock Studios and 2K looks to be like quite another challenge, but also so amazing if pulled off.

Bloody Mary from The Wolf Among Us by Telltale Games would be pretty amazing and scary to see in-person.

Of course, seeing Bigby, also from The Wolf Among Us by Telltale Games, walking around a convention center perhaps "approaching" Bloody Mary would be epic.

Mortal Kombat X's Kano would be a fun cosplay for any guy looking to show off his gym efforts.

The Knights from The Order: 1886 by Red at Dawn, SCE Santa Monica Studios and Sony Computer Entertainment, would be a great group cosplay for friends. There's nothing like doing a cosplay theme with your fellow cosplay comrades.

Is anyone looking to turn some heads on your way to the convention dressed as characters from Hotline Miami and Hotline Miami 2 by Dennation Games and Devolver Digital? The look on people's faces would be absolutely priceless--just like Visa.

I don't know about you ladies, but I think Triss from The Witcher series by CD Projekt RED is stunning.

Geralt from The Witcher series by CD Projekt RED is amazing, not only as an individual, but can be done as a group with the other characters.

Yennefer from The Witcher series is a great addition to the group idea or as an individual one.

Throw in Vesemir from The Witcher series and now you have a 4-person group cosplay.

Dying Light's Jade by Techland Games is simply badass.

Add in Dying Light's main character Kyle Crane with Jade and now you have a couples themed cosplay.

If you want to creep people out and impress them with your cosplay and make-up artist skills; how about being an Uruk Orc from Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor?

Don't forget about Talion from Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor either. You could probably do some amazing things with contacts for the eye effects when he uses his abilities.

These are just but a few ideas to assist in your costume ideas whether it be cosplay at conventions, competitions, or even for Halloween. I can't wait to see what amazing creations cosplayers will come up with!

    The Dragon Age Inquisition creature and the Goliath look super hard to do! Would love to see people walking around as them!

    All good suggestions Venisia! I suspect we'll also see a fair number of Spider-Gwen cosplays in 2015 as well.
