In the cosplay world its very common to see females of all shapes,
sizes, and colors getting all the love. Photographers flocking to
them and well rightfully so because some of their cosplays are just
that badass! Well, lets put that idea on hold for one second and talk
about my fellow XY chromosome amigos. Its time for us to get
some love to, right? No worries my friend, I have your back. Today
we are going to look at the top 10 easy male cosplays.
I really had to do a lot of thinking to cut this list down and there are
several people I still wish I could include. But that’s ok, ill make a
second top 10 easy male cosplays post and will include them in
there. Quick side note, When I say easy, I basically mean something
you can buy all the parts for, have shipped overnight, and be ready
for the con by tomorrow. Not easy as in easy to construct. Still
working my way up to that post!
Kicking off the easy male cosplay list we have none other than the
head of the Lin Kuei. That’s right I’m talking about one of the most
iconic characters in the entire fighting game world, Sub-Zero.
There have been many iterations of this character that stretch all
the way back to 1992. You can grab several (variation 1, Variation
2, Variation 3) of this character outfits for the low and will be sure
to be recognized at any con you attend.
Next up we have sub zeros arch enemy. Another legend in the
fighting game scene and just as iconic. If you guessed scorpion or
simply looked up, you nailed it. Scorpion Was also part of the 1992
mortal Kombat cast and similarly comes in varies variations
(variation 1, Variation 2, Variation 3). Feel free to also pick up
some of his weapons to increase your photography appeal. I
guarantee you will be recognized and have a blast running around
yelling “GET OVER HERE”.
Another classic in its own regards but maybe not as iconic, we have
Zero Kiryu from Vampire Knight. This character is unique in that
he’s both a vampire and a vampire hunter. This series came out in
2008 and was extremely popular at cons for the time. Im not sure if
a lot of the newer generation has seen this character but I’m sure
the older crowd will acknowledge you. Feel to pick up his WIG for
Gintama was revamped from its original series which released in
2006 to the current one which came out in 2018. The story focuses
on Gintoki Sakata, samurais and aliens that are trying to invade
earth. It’s rather simple but extremely eloquent and well written.
Another positive, this cosplay is rather cheap coming in under $100
meaning you won’t have to break the bank to get it. Mix in a sword
and you have yourself one hell of a cosplay.
Let me first start by saying I loved this series, the original one that
is. All these other versions are a bit much. But the original was to
die for, again in my opinion. The main character Kirito is an
absolute beast at video games and brings the full might of these
skills in the MMO sword art online. This is another iconic series
that was loved by some and hated by others. It seems there’s no on
the fence about this one, you loved it or hated it. Grab his swords
and start practicing your starburst stream combos.
This series absolutely rocked the anime world upon its debut and
still continues to shock fans all over the world. I mean, it was so
popular Japan built a park focused on it. The main character Eren
Yeager steals all of the light but I personally am a Captain Levi
fan. He is hands down the strongest member of the survey corps
and humanities secret weapon against the Titans. Pick up this
cosplay for a little under 100 bucks and mix in one of the
steampunk swords and you have yourself one of the best easy
If youre truly committed to the easy male cosplay cause, then look
no further than the most nonchalant extremely overpowered hero
ever created. That’s right the character the series is named after,
One Punch Man. If you’re not fully committed to shaving your
head, there’s always bald caps. If you don’t feel like rocking the
iconic character himself there’s still a plethora of other characters
to choose from. Characters such as Metal Bat, Garou and Suiryu
will also gain you tons of attention.
Another flashback to the past, we have Vash the stampede. I
haven’t seen this series in years but remember it like it was
yesterday. This gun-toting badass is an absolute classic and aired
along with the original Toonami series. Funny enough, oddly
enough he doesn’t cause that much damage. It’s actually the bounty
hunters that chase him which cause all of the damage. I really miss
cosplayers sporting this character and want to see him make a
comeback. Snatch up his iconic glasses and gun to maximize the
Another newcomer to the cosplay scene is Rakan. He was released
in 2017 and has been an ever-popular character in the cosplay
community. This character comes with the added benefit of having
a notable counterpart. If you have a female cosplayer friend or
girlfriend she can cosplay as his partner in crime xayah. I always
go out of my way to photograph these characters when I see them
at conventions and love the poses that we can create together.
Last but not least on the easy male cosplay list, we have the second
most memorable villain in the entire Naruto franchise. The
Sharingan wielding badass Itachi always made quick work of any
opponent that dared to stand in front of him. He literally left a trail
of his dead clanmates in his wake and only spared his younger
brother. I have always wanted to wear these contacts but I’m
terrified of putting anything in my eye. Maybe one-day ill rock a
dreaded version of this cosplayer with my own spin to it. Does
anyone want to see that?
Well, I hope you enjoyed this look at my top 10 easy male cosplays.
If you enjoyed this post definitely leave a comment below. I would
love to see some of these cosplays at my next convention which
should be Blerdcon. If you would like to have your picture taken
feel free to send me a message. I will be making a link that you can
sign up for in a few days. That’s everything for today until next
time stay BOUNDLESS!!
