10 Best Houston Cosplayers

The rise of the Houston cosplay scene has been fantastic to watch. Every year at the increasing number of geek conventions, you find more and more people pulling out all the stops to bring characters to wonderful life. Today we look at the ten most amazing examples of cosplay brilliance H-Town produces.

Titan As his name suggests, Titan is a mountain of a man. He got into cosplay in 2012 after he left the army. His first costume was Bane from The Dark Knight Rises. He made a splash at the Halloween party he was attending, but putting together so elaborate a setup for just one night didn't feel worth it. In 2013 he started taking his creations to Comicpalooza and has been an avid cosplayer ever since. His other works include Colossus and the armored version of Hulk seen in Planet Hulk. The latter involved an 800-piece handmade chain-mail armor and leather war kilt requiring hours of work.
