Now this is a project any cosplay fan should support! Coming out just in time for the holiday season is a calendar showcasing the incredibly talented cosplayers of the male variety. Each cosplay highlighted in the calendar will go along with the gaming theme that the Men vs Cosplay team chose to go with for their very first calendar.
The Men vs Cosplay group was founded by Anabel Martinez, a gaming enthusiast and artist, and Allen Amis, a highly talented costume and prop builder. Together, they decided to bring to life this calendar! With the support of fans on their Facebook page, along with a team to help push this project along, Men vs Cosplay has set up a Kickstarter project to fund the calendar’s production.
Cosplayers from around the world have been brought onto the project and are willing to bring to life the male leads of our favorite games, including those like: Ezio, Naked Snake, Chris Redfield, Scorpion, and more! As the Kickstarter continues to gain more backers and funds toward the project, there is potential that the team will be able to extend the 12-month calendar to 18 months. Know what that means?
Even more cosplay men! Now who could say no to more cosplay men? I know I couldn’t.
