I didn’t think much of these pictures when I saw them last week because the image of Fan Bing Bing as Empress Wu has pretty much ingrained itself into my head. But when I stumbled upon the above picture yesterday…. I was like… WHAT? What a great job she did cosplaying the drama empress! I’m telling you cosplaying in China is a legit business. If I ever go to China, I would definitely find a cosplaying artist and turn myself into a kickass character from wuxia. The person above goes by the name of Black Crow on Weibo and you can check all…..HIS works there.

The person above is a male. MALE.
Shaming all women with his skills. Behold! (Please don’t ask me about his…chest. I dunno.)

Brooding at night is a consort’s second profession, wondering where the lecherous King is at tonight.
Strolling around the forbidden city because…he can.
