When cosplay goes bad

In pictures: Ultimate cosplay catastrophes next


Bad cosplay is like watching a bug eat another bug’s face off – it's disgusting, but you can't look away.

In the following slideshow, we take a look at some of the worst examples of cosplaying ever to assault our peepers. Most of these costumes would make a supermodel look bad. [Note: These people are not supermodels.]

To really ram the horror home, we’ve included a side-by-side comparison to what each character should look like. Needless to say, most of them are pretty 'wide' of the mark.

But don't fret -- as a soothing balm, we've also included a few beautiful cosplayers on the basis of piddling technicalities. We're nice like that.
