Today's feature on the very best cosplayers in the world takes us to Indonesia, where we're taking a look at the astounding work of Echow88.

While some cosplayers can get by modelling characters with "basic" costumes, Echow88 goes all-out, appearing as the stars of games like Star Ocean 4, Kingdom hearts, Lineage II and Aion, all of whose outfits are large, complicated and basically a total bitch to put together.


The real killer, though, is in the details, which still shots aren't really doing justice. That Edge outfit from Star Ocean 4, for example? He built it to glow, sticking a giant light bulb inside it to replicate the effect from the game.

The gallery above showcases some of his best works. You can see a lot more<a href="[link]"> at his personal collection. As a bonus, there's a video in there too, featuring a Kingdom Hearts outfit being role-played at last year's UKDW JapFest.

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.
