Kotaku's journey around the very best cosplayers in the world continues this week with a look at American costume builder, model and make-up artist Lindze.

A make-up artist by trade, Lindze is an example of quality over quantity: while her portfolio may not be packed to the gills like many other prominent cosplayers, when she does knuckle down on a costume, the results are usually fantastic.


Going beyond the usual use of simple fabrics, Lindze often employs more complicated materials. That Miranda outfit, for example, needed all kinds of custom-printed stuff (all sewn and assembled by Lindze), while the Baroness armour had to be sculpted by a local artist (though again, she made the rest of the costume).

You can see some highlights in the gallery above, while there's more shots on Lindze's official site.

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.
