These Fans Nailed Their Sexy Genderbent 'Yu-Gi-Oh!' Cosplay
When it comes to cosplay, there is no limit to what you can do. If you want to dress like Naruto and make your entire outfit out of ramen noodles, you will find a wave of support at your local anime con. There are no rules holding you back from your cosplay dreams, and puny looks will always get you noticed by fans.
So, you can understand why a cosplay act is going viral over their special Yu-Gi-Hoes look. How can it not with a name like that?

Over on Twitter, cosplayer Megan Langan posted a new cosplay set she did with some friends. The photos, which appear to be from KatsuCon, show Megan and Kristy P living their best genderbent lives with a cosplayer known as Cellaira.
As you can see below, the cosplays are pretty dang fierce. The Yu-Gi-Ho look genderbends a few of the anime franchise’s top players. Atem is giving a sultry makeover involving fishnet stockings, leather shorts, and his (or her?) colorful haircut.
The Egyptian pharaoh is joined by Yugi and Yami Bakura in other photos. Fans will easily recognize the first character thanks to his hair, but Yami is harder. The cosplay’s sexified get-up sees the duelist living their best life in a slinky mesh top, but fans cannot mistake Yami’s styled silver hair.
As expected, this sizzling cosplay trio has fans buzzing over their genderbent look. Sexy may not be the first word that comes to mind when you think of Yu-Gi-Oh, but these fans are trying to change that outlook even if they do it one duel at a time.
For those unfamiliar with Yu-Gi-Oh!, the series was originally created by Kazuki Takahashi. It ran in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump from September 1996 to March 2004. The series follows Yugi Mutou, a young boy who solves an ancient puzzle and is possessed by the spirit of the Egyptian pharoah. Being skilled at deadly games, the Pharoah goes on to create and solve problems for Yugi based on deadly games of chance.
Two anime series were created for the series, but the one most fans will recognize is Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters. Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters was the first arc in the story to focus on the "Duel Monsters" card game and was the first season licensed for an English language release by 4Kids Entertainment. The first season of the series, which fans often dub as "Season 0," was more focuses on deadly games of chance with horrible consequences. It's a darker season of the series featuring many changes from the series' identity later on.
