GotGame returned to San Diego Comic Con again after a successful trip last year, and with that, we also brought back new cosplay photos. Again focusing on video game based cosplay, we managed to find some really unique and impressive costumes this year. Unfortunately, there were some that we couldn’t get pictures of, including but not limited to a lot of cool Overwatch cosplayers, a nice Carmelita Fox (Sly Cooper), and even some Shadow Heartless (Kingdom Hearts). Despite this, we managed to see some familiar faces from last year, some reprising their 2016 cosplay while others brought new characters to life.
Overwatch continues to be a popular choice for cosplayers, which isn’t surprising considering it was game of the year for plenty of outlets last year. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild also had a lot of cosplay this year, with plenty of fans doing various armors from the game. Even then, there was still some cool and unique cosplay all around at the convention. All cosplayers have given their consent and we have made sure to credit the ones that provided the information.
