And why wouldn't they? The guys are cool, decked in nice threads with rad hair. And then there's the swank paramilitary gear, too. Fancy!

Guys have a hard time cosplaying because whilst many female game characters have crazy proportions, they can be achieved with clever stitching and cleavage, many male characters are physically unattainable for most guys, Chris Redfield's shoulders, biceps and traps in Resi5 for example are probably in the realm of professional body builders, even then, holy shit, those forearms are insane.
