In this week's showcase of the best in cosplay, teamwork is the key word of the day, with two of the better shots involving not one or two fans in costume, but entire video game casts.

Those casts are from BioShock and Final Fantasy XIII, the former showing a motley crew of splicers, the latter the game's heroes looking a lot more relaxed than they do in the game.

There are also amazing pictures of tributes to Assassin's Creed, virtual idol Hatsune Miku and, most impressive of all, Laughing Octopus from Metal Gear Solid 4.

Fancy Pants is a look at the world of cosplay (costume play), where people dress up as their favorite video game characters. Sometimes it works! Sometimes it...yeah.
