These kinds of ‘who wore it better’ images are usually reserved for fashion mags querying celebrity red carpet choices, but here we have the ultimate nerdy version for you today! The folks from Diply visited ‘Fan Expo Canada 2015’ and took some snaps of awesome cosplay that they saw there. Then they created these little side-by-side images with a photo of the original character that each costume was based on. The question is, of course, who wore it better? We think all these costumes are excellent, but not all of them quite live up to the originals. On the other hand, some of them are even better! So, take a look and see what you think!
X2, Domino and Gambit, from X-Men, are looking pretty badass here!
Is this cosplayer jumping the gun with their Starkiller outfit?
You know nothing, Jon Snow, except how to pull off an epic cosplay.
Is Shredder as menacing in real life?
What do you think of these Sailor Scouts?
Isn’t this Princess Peach just… peachy?!
Who you gonna call? Uh… Ghostbusters. Duh!
What about Khaleesi back with her sun and stars, Khal Drogo?
Can you judge which Dredd is the best one?
Elsa and Merida meet at last!
We think this Deadpool is pretty convincing.
Exterminate the Dalek imposter!
This Boba Fett costume is almost indistinguishable from the original!
Is this Alex from A Clockwork Orange terrifying enough?
