The cosplay community is positively thriving these days. Cosplay costumes that were once reserved for fringe nerds and geeks have now become gloriously mainstream.

People put a whole lot of effort and passion into their costume ideas, spending vast sums of money and time to get their cosplay characters just right, down to the finest detail. That's not the case with these folks and their cool costumes, however.

What we’ve got here are people who aced their famous character cosplay without even realizing it. Compiled in a list by Bored Panda, these coincidental cosplays and funny accidents are often even better than the real thing! Scroll down to check these funny photos out below, and don’t forget to upvote your favorites!

Depending on your age, you may see two different well known characters. 2000' Gru of the minions. 1970's Uncle Fester of the Addams Family. I first saw Uncle Fester.

Another one that seems like it's trying too hard. He's just wearing a dinner jacket. He isn't even wearing a shirt or tie. Okay, he has a moustache and kinda looks like the guy, but "accidental cosplay" goes too far.
