As cosplaying becomes more popular around the world, the top cosplayers have achieved a level of fame for their skill, and as is often the case, their sexiness. This is especially true of female cosplayers that make up the majority of professional cosplayers. While many men and women inhabit the spirit of the cosplay beautifully, it takes someone special to put in the time and effort to not only look the role but become the role so convincingly that it is hard to tell them apart from the real McCoy.
While cosplaying is present in most post parts of the world, it is decidedly most popular in Asia, North America, and Europe. Each region has their own particular flair and style when it comes to the predominance of character choice when cosplaying. It only makes sense that people tend to cosplay characters they grew up with, or in the cases of some of these ladies, the ones they get paid handsomely for.
Jessica Nigri is considered by many to be the “Queen of Cosplay.” Her very loyal 3.1 million Instagram followers and corporations that pay her well to become their characters, as reported by Inquisitr, wouldn’t argue that. Her sexy Pikachu cosplay at the 2009 San Diego Comic-Con is regarded as having set the modern era of cosplay in motion. Nigri is best known for cosplays that are more inspired representations of characters than the literal ones she is paid for, such as Gears of War 3.
Hailing from New York, Stella Chuu was a burlesque performer until 2017 and is now an international cosplayer, according to Hollywood Reporter. She has become a fixture on the convention circuit, spreading geek culture to mainstream and casual audiences alike. She gets special props for creating her own cosplays rather than having a professional costumer put them together. She is said to have a great personality and attitude when meeting fans which is in part why brands such as Purple Plum, Soda Pop miniatures, and RAWR! Burlesque have also sponsored her to be a brand ambassador.
This month is Revy, bikini, and Yuno Gasai themed on my Patreon. I shot all of these sets while I was in Trinidad! The hot sun was so nice and HORRIBLE FOR MY SKIN. I’m still dealing with my uneven suntan ???? Hopefully I’ll spend the rest of the summer hiding in a hole playing video games. Hikikomori for life!

MissHabit, aka Amie Lynn, has been in the cosplay universe for about a decade now, establishing herself as one of the top “non-purist” cosplayers around. While she has pulled off a number of high profile cosplays that garnered worldwide attention, it is her cosplay of Lighting from Final Fantasy XIII that has probably brought her the most attention and made her in demand at conventions around the world, according to ADN Radio.
Finally, Alodia Gosiengfiao, or just Alodia to her fans, is one of the sexiest cosplayers to follow on Instagram.
