You gotta love cosplay for charity. Here's an amazing set of photos of the G.I. Joe cosplayer group known as Cobra 1st Legion. They go around visiting fun and cool locations around the San Francisco Bay Area, and raise money for charity. Here's a description form their website...
The Cobra 1st Legion is a G.I. Joe themed Cosplay / Charity Organization. We attend comic book conventions dressed as characters from the G.I. Joe comic book with self-made costumes. We do charity projects like Toy Drives for the Children's Hospital of Oakland, sending books to troops with Operation Paperback, food drives for the Alameda County Community Food Bank and more. For our members we have organized photo-shoots at amazing, historic sites such as the U.S.S. Hornet Aircraft Carrier, the U.S.S. Pampanito Submarine and infamous Alcatraz Prison among other locations.
This is done out of love of the toy/movie/cartoon/comic book series and in respect to the works of Mr. Hama. It is done for the adventure it isn't a job.
Most of our charity projects are open to the public. If you think this looks like fun and you think you have what it takes to put together a costume and join in on the party, contact us and Join The LEGION!
These cosplayers look like they're having a hell of a fun time. I could see myself doing something like this, especially if it's for charity. Click here to see even more photos!
