T-Pain’s cosplay as the Leroy Smith Tekken character had blerds going crazy this holiday weekend. He debuted the unreleased character cosplay on Sunday at Dragoncon 2019. Cosplay is a huge staple of the blerd community, and having such a huge celebrity to embrace it shows how impactful representation can be.
As well as an accomplished “Rappa Ternt Sanga”, T-Pain is actually a huge gamer as well. He has a huge Twitch following and often plays Apex Legends and Rainbow Six: Siege.

As a *cough* casual cosplayer, I was amazed at how spot on and accurate the cosplay was. Leroy Smith, also known as Uncle Leroy to the blerds, was revealed at EVO 2019 this year. The fact that he was able to put together that high quality of a cosplay that quickly is amazing.
