Check out this amazing Dark Pit cosplay, based on the design of Dark Pit in Kid Icarus: Uprising!

Kid Icarus enthusiasts know this character as the palette-swapped doppelganger of Pit, hero of the series. Dark Pit sprang into existence when Pit destroyed the Mirror of Truth. Despite his origin and antagonistic nature, Dark Pit is no villain – and his quirky traits often land him a spot as a fan favorite.

Kid Icarus: Uprising was and still is my favorite 3ds game! When Dark Pit was first introduced, i fell in love with the idea of a “dark pit”. He’s super sarcastic and his personality is so relatable! This costume took me about 2 weeks to make right before Titan Con 2018 held at Cal State Fullerton in June. Not only did i have to make my entire costume but i also made my sister entire Pit cosplay! Thanks Epic Cosplay wigs for the fast shipping and great quality wig, i seriously can’t buy wigs like this from anyone else!
