We all know about the hilarious but shameful farce that is American cosplay. It has been the source of ridicule and hilarity for us normal people for a long time now. But sometimes legitimately good/hilarious cosplay pops up.

Discuss.

...I think it works not because he has a good costume, but because he has the mannerisms and laugh down.

Well, I lasted eight seconds.  I guess that is a little longer than I tolerate most cosplaying idiots.

I been through a number of anime cons and there are a number of real good cosplayers, but most of them are awful. Kefka cosplayer is actually good and managed to pull off the laugh. Funny video.

I didn't watch the whole video due to a little something I like to call self-respect, but that Kefka dude did a pretty good job. Cosplay is easy to make fun of but I mean, whatever, I'm sure people have fun at them so... good for them....

I still think the greatest cosplay I've ever done is on the FFXII release, myself and 2 friends went dressed as a giant ATB bar... I wish I had pictures, I think they've been circulating around GameStop employees... I heard we won some kind of competition for it or something, but nothing's come my way.

It's perfect..Kefka's just so much more of a fruit when you aren't reading his lines :P

 Calling Sephiroth a mama's boy was pretty awesome though.

Agreed here. I actually have a little respect for that guy. He was pretty good.

He's not bad.  Decent costume, good characterization.

Which is fortunate, its rare to see a good western cosplayer.  Most of the time, I find only hot Asian girls or effeminate males could pull it off.
