I assembled a team of cosplay professionals to see if the gaming women of today have what it takes to strut the red carpet of Comic Con. From the practical to the practically ludicrous, today’s female video game characters often straddle a fine line of taste.
Since I typically roll out of bed, grab a plaid shirt from the "day old" pile, while throwing on a pair of jeans from the "week old" pile; I asked some cosplay experts – the mistresses of material, the champions of the cloth, the nerds of the needle and thread – to help me judge the outfits of some of today’s gaming royalty.

Why choose experts in cosplay? Simple. When they look at a character, they see cloth, seams, zippers, and what it takes to turn two pounds of material into something amazing. They just don’t live it; they also wear it to conventions. While they each approach cosplay differently; they all bring style, class, and a passion for video games to the judge’s table. And without further ado, here are your judges.
