GamesCom: Cosplayers attempt to break Guinness record

Saturday, 22nd August 2009 16:07 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


GamesCom had loads of cosplayers in attendance, so much so that the group was trying to break a Giuness world record for The Largest Gathering of Games Characters.

Over 400 cosplayers are expected to gather at the event today, to try and break the MCM London record of 376 characters.

Guinness representatives were dispatched, and planned to make each one count by having people write the name of the character and game they are from on a form, get a photo taken, and wait until the rest are counted.

Sounds fun. Waiting in a queue is always fun. Especially one that is over 400 people strong. Hopefully there is a rollercoatser ride at the end of the line. Doubtful though.

Thanks, Joystiq.

    I like anime but the Ex-gf was far more into it. let it be heard guys, don’t let your girlfriend dress you up as an anime character then take you on the subway on a saturday morning.

    People in suits will laugh at you >_>
