So you like doing cosplay -- why not try being Zoidberg, maybe? 

There is a real challenge in creating a cosplay from a very alien but simultanesouly adorable cartoon character. Melding real-world aesthetics with wacky animation designs creates a kind of uncanny valley where there's plenty of room to play, but also a huge risk of getting it wrong.

Bringing Zoidberg into the world of the real has exactly those challenges. But it can be done. Check it:

Hooray, Zoidberg's horrifying. Also, be sure and watch this video documenting all the work that went into creating this absolutely fantastic cosplay.
