Got a crazy Fancy Pants for you this week, Kotaku readers. Oh sure, there's the normal array of people dressed up as people from Final Fantasy, Halo and Assassin's Creed.

But there's also some crazier stuff. Like a walking KOS-MOS from Xenosaga. A Samus Aran in honour of the lady's 25th birthday. And, for good measure, a girl dressed up as a character from Fate/stay night, which despite some PS2 and PSP games began life as an adult visual novel.

Oh, and there's also the greatest Batman cosplay I have ever seen. Ever.

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.
