Top 10 Genderbent Cosplays

Top 10 Genderbent Cosplays

January 2, 2015 1 By Alanna Smith

Genderbending, or Rule 63, is probably one of my favourite cosplay trends. Cosplayers take their favourite characters and swap their genders, altering the designs to better suit either the male or female form. The results are always creative and interesting, and most cosplayers will put their own personal spin on it making for some very unique looks. Here are 10 amazing male and female genderbent cosplays.
