Welcome to Fancy Pants, Kotaku's weekly roundup of the very best in cosplay from the past week.

As the headline kinda spoils already, this week we've got someone dressing up as an Assassin from an Assassin's Creed game that's not even out yet. That's how much cosplayers love Assassin's Creed.

There's also a terrifyingly realistic Judge Gabranth from Final Fantasy XII, Tekken's Alisa Bosconovitch and a pair of Nintendo racers suited up and ready to go.

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.
