Cosplayaz

Cosplayerz is a series of videos comprised of various recordings the Mega64 crew have filmed at different conventions throughout the year. Each Cosplayerz video its edited to the the song "Parlez-vous Freezepop? (Inter:sect mix)" by Freezepop.

For most conventions that the group attends, they tend to cosplay as "spur of the moment" characters that are made by putting on random costume parts and accessories. The videos consist mostly of the Mega64 crew dancing in areas of the conventions, and brief shots of actual cosplayers paired with humorous captions. One could expect some typical Mega64-fashion "griefing" of cosplayers and other Mega64 shenanigans in these videos.

The first Cosplayerz video was an IGN exclusive. The other subsequent Cosplayerz videoz have been available to the public on YouTube, as well as a free downloadable from their site.

TriviaEdit

Death threat

"Take a picture and get out."

  • In Cosplayerz: Strike a Poze, Rocco Botte had a death threat put upon him by one of the local Naruto cosplayerz. It eventually got so bad there was a thread on a cosplaying forum where they were elaborating on their desire to kill him.
