23. Freddy Krueger from A Nightmare on Elm Street

One, two Freddy’s coming for you… and she looks really awesome while doing it. Vamp is famous for her dark cosplays. Playing vampires, witches, and more, her most iconic might be her feminine take on the haunt master himself.

Freddy Krueger was a terrible man who the town revolted against when they discovered he was a pedophile. Burning him in the building where he worked, they believed that they were done with him forever. Little did they know that they created a monster who would haunt the dreams of their children on Elm Street.

The series has haunted us for many generations, spanning countless movies and reboots, but still, a female Freddy is a pretty awesome thing to see. Typically he’s Robert Englund, a man covered in burn marks for the role who stands at a daunting height.

For Vamp, her take is a little more on the attractive side. While it might be weird to have a sexy take on Freddy Krueger, she finds a way to work it. Wearing Freddy’s iconic glove, striped sweater and hat, she doesn’t have the burn marks but you definitely know who is coming knocking at your door in your dreams.

Her look may make you want to go to sleep though. Nothing to fear here with this great cosplay!
