Every week, I try to feature as many male video game cosplayers in this roundup as I can. It's good to balance things out!

But this week, there's an imbalance in the force. Well, a greater one than normal, given the fact top-shelf cosplay (at least when it comes to video games) is usually dominated by the ladies anyway. There just weren't many quality dudes on show.

So aside from the awesome Ichigo Kurosaki (Bleach) here, everyone else in this week's gallery is rocking a female character.

That means we get the usual suspects like Poison and Final Fantasy characters, but also some Dragon Age, Portal and Metal Gear Solid as well.

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.
