Meagan Marie works for Crystal Dynamics on the Tomb Raider series. You probably know her better, though, as one of the most talented cosplayers (and costume builders) in the world.

Meagan takes the lead this week in a stellar lineup of cosplay shots, the proximity to last month's Comic-Con perhaps meaning people still had their best costumes out and lying around.


If you're franchise-conscious, we've got pics featuring characters (well, people dressed as characters) from Mortal Kombat, Tomb Raider, Final Fantasy, Street Fighter, Darkstalkers, Kingdom Hearts, Zelda, Metal Gear and even Dragon Age.

To see the larger pics in all their glory, either click the "expand" icon on the gallery screen or right click and "open link in new tab".

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.
