Congolese Wrestlers by Colin Delfosse

I’m guessing someone has already referenced Congolese wrestlers in their collection press release. These are some pretty next level fighting outfits. Less ‘fun’ than Mexican costumes and far more sinister than anything Big Daddy ever wore, take these incredible images by Colin Delfosse as weekend garb inspiration.

Flavorwire explain. “There are hundreds of wrestlers in Kinshasa city on the Congo River. In the evening, they lead audiences in motorized parades to the backyards and back streets where their semi-fixed matches begin. Their costumes — from the luchador-esque macho men and mystical spell casters to priests and Spidermen — complement their furious charisma.”
