Beat Down Boogie’s cosplay video from the ever popular MAGfest. We can see the evolution of the cosplay video here with the use of Snake and Ghost to add a reoccurring element and far less emphasis on skimpy costumes.

This cut is about 10 minutes long and called “Pretty Strange”. I think there are some great costumes in here. Fancy a look at the pictures? There’s a collection […]

The result feels very different! This was filmed at DragonCon 2014. 2015 tickets are now available from DragonCon.org.
