Cosplay of the Day: G.I. Joe for a Good Cause

GI Joe Cosplay
Cobra 1st Legion

Today’s cosplay comes from an amazing group of cosplayers who love ‘G.I. Joe’ and charity, and they use some pretty interesting locations to stage their photo shoots.

Meet the guys and gals of the Cobra 1st Legion! They’re a group of cosplayers who make their own costumes and accessories to dress up like the characters from ‘G.I. Joe,’ but it’s not just for fun. These players are also in it for charity and get to go to all sorts of awesome locations like air force bases and museums for their photo shoots. They’re also totally open to the public, so if you’re in or around their area, you can join in on the fun!

We’ll let them explain:

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!
