Cosplay can be great when a piece is a painstaking recreation of the original. There is, however, nothing stopping it from being great when there's a bit of gender-bending going on, either.
Rmthompson1979's shot of Abigail here, dressed as Zelda's Link, is proof of that.
She's far from the only amazing picture we've got this week though, as a red Spartan goes overboard with attention to detail, some Pokémon cosplayers go all slow-motion on us and, going back to Zelda for a moment, a Skull Kid shows they look just as weird in the real world as they do in Hyrule/Termina.
