The cosplay community is positively thriving these days, what was once reserved for fringe nerds and geeks has now become gloriously mainstream.

People put a whole lot of effort and passion into their costumes, spending vast sums of money and time to get their character just right, down to the finest detail. Not these folks however.

What we’ve got here are people who aced their cosplay without even realizing it. Compiled in a list by Bored Panda, these coincidental cosplays are often even better than the real thing! Scroll down to check them 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.
