Cosplay is a worldwide fandom phenomenon, but it feels like one country is putting on its A game more than the others. When we've put together cosplay roundups for the site it was the Russian scene that always seem to have the slickest, most high-production shots. Maybe it's the fact that they're literally the point where East meets West, or maybe it's that bizarre maelstrom of Tsarist opulence and Post-Communist hustle. Put for whatever reason, Mother Russia has the cosplay game on LOCKDOWN.
