Amazing Monster Hunter Cosplayer
The most impressive cosplay at this summer’s Wonder Festival was without question this troupe of cosplayers doing their version Capcom’s massive game hit, Monster Hunter. In recent years Monster Hunter (or “Monhan” as it is shortened here in Japan) cosplayers have become the most numerous and usually make up about one third of all cosplayers at any major event. This group had amazing costumes and a very coordinated group outfit, but most impressive was the poor guy (it was over 30 degrees in the shade, and very humid) inside the monster mount suit! He barely moved as the troupe spent hours posing for photographers and fellow cosplayers. Later on I caught them checking out a show inside the festival so I snapped a picture (even though you are not supposed to, very bad manners) just to show you how the suit looks half-worn! That guy is a real hero! I’m happy for the sake of his back though, that he didn’t actually do any poses with the rest of this team astride on his back!
