Bit of a quiet week in cosplay last week, so there's not much new stuff to share. Thankfully, there's some new shots of favourite old costumes to get us through the dry spell.

I'll never get tired of seeing cel-shaded Borderlands cosplay. Never. Such a simple but effective touch.

I will also post any and all Half-Life 2 cosplay I come across. Especially when it forgoes the obvious and pays tribute to the game's best-dressed cannon fodder.

Fancy Pants is Kotaku's weekly round-up of the best in video game cosplay (costume play), where fans dress up as their favourite characters.
