Fighting game fans know that girlish good looks and feminine moniker aside, Bridget is a dude. He's not only one of Guilty Gear's most memorable characters—that nun outfit, that yo-yo, that huge handcuff—but also one of gaming's. No wonder why people want to dress up as him. But who does it best?

Born as a twin, Bridget was given a female name, because where he grew up, it was bad luck to have two twins of the same sex. Thus, Bridget was raised as a girl. When he grew up, he decided to show his masculinity by becoming a bounty hunter. With a yo-yo. And a teddy bear.

In the above gallery, a smattering of cosplayers trots out their best Bridgets. On Who Wore It Best?, Kotaku takes a look at a variety of folks attempting to bring a popular character to life, blue nun head gear and all.

DISCUSSION

This is one of the things I don't get about Japan. There are TONS of cross-dressers in anime and video games over there, which is fine but, they always look decidedly female and they always have some elaborate backstory to explain why they are cross dressing.

Even the really good cross-dressers look like dudes in a dress. They might still look pretty, but they look like dudes in a dress. But in Japan they just look EXACTLY like girls. Strangely enough, the inverse is NOT true. In tons of anime and manga there are also girls who cross-dress to pretend to be guys, but you can spot them a mile away as they look like pretty girls in men's clothing.

And the backstory is even sillier. The reason a person cross-dresses is because they like to cross dress. No series of events would even occur to get a non cross-dressing person to regularly cross dress and be ok with it.
