Japanese fans are celebrating the excellent start of the 2018 World Cup in style. The supporter above made a fantastic style selection for the game against Senegal in Group H of the tournament.

Besides showcasing his culture with the costume, he still painted his entire face. Imagine how long it took to get ready? But the fact is that this man managed to stand out from the rest and deserves to be at the top of our list.

Body Art On Full Display

This Tunisian fan did not go unnoticed during the match against Belgium, in Group G of the World Cup. Although his country lost the duel 2-5, he remained cheerful all the time and brought the party to the bleachers with the flag of his country.

The painting all over his body aside, it must have taken a lot of work. But unfortunately, his country was eliminated from the competition. At least his team spirit will live on forever.

This original fan got photographed during the Iran-Spain clash on June 20th for Group B of the World Cup. Although he appears animated in the photo, his country was defeated 1 to 0 by the Spaniards in the Kazan Arena.

The Iranians wrapped up the first round with four points (1D, 1V, and 1E) and are out of the competition sequence. Whenever your team gets the boot, it’s always best to stay positive.

Creativity Never Ends

After the last round of the group stage, the standings determined that Brazil will pick up Mexico in the last 16 of the 2018 World Cup. We don’t know what will happen on the field. But in the stands, the fans promise to make it beautiful.

This fan has already given a sample of what we will see on July 2, 2018, the day the two teams enter the field at 11 am (Brasilia time). Indeed, the Brazilians will also make their costumes enjoyable.

Argentine Drama



The face of this supporter depicts what all the Argentina fans felt at one point. Lionel Messi’s team only managed to qualify for the last round of Group D by beating Nigeria 2-1. Can you imagine the desperation of the fans who went to the stadium?

Despite all the suffering, the brothers remain in the competition and will face the French, who were first in Group C. Hopefully, Messi can bring his A game that fans want to see.

Egypt Didn’t Make It, But The Fans Had A Good Time

This man decided to let his culture shine brightly through his costume. For the duel against Saudi Arabia, which happened in the early matches, he chose an outfit that represents Egypt fittingly.

The 2-1 defeat marked the farewell of Mohamed Salah’s team. Uruguay and Russia were the qualifiers of Group A of the 2018 World Cup. His team might have lost, but he may have won the unofficial costume contest going on between fans. Who’s got the best ideas?

Paint The Body, Don’t Hurt Anybody

The creativity of some people has no limits. The camera also spotted this man during the game between Saudi Arabia and Egypt, for the last round of Group A of the competition.

It doesn’t take much effort to think of something out of the box that helps show which team you support. Because it looks like it took forever to paint his whole body, this guy already deserves an award. Let there be patience!

The beautiful costume with the colors of the country is a real work of art. Not to mention the painting he did on his face to look like a tiger. Applause goes to this supporter and anyone else who gets as creative.

Germany Fans Take Advantage



Germany surprised the world by being eliminated in the group stage of the 2018 World Cup. Who would have bet that the current champion would not be in the round of 16? After stumbling against South Korea and Mexico, the Germans returned home early.

Unlike the team, the fans made it beautiful and did not disappoint. The man above is an example of this. Painting your beard a different color shows a different level of dedication. It represents the country well!

The French Are Motivated To Become Champions

The French fans are thrilled that the team is in an excellent position to win the world’s top football competition. So far the European country is appointed as one of the favorites to lift the trophy this year.

Therefore, the fans are perfecting their outfits. The Frenchie was spotted during the duel with Australia in Group C. We hope he will encourage the team again in their next match, when France faces Argentina on July 8, 2018.

Big Party In Uruguay



These creative fans have every reason to celebrate. This vast visual on top of this fan’s head is fantastic. Uruguay finished the group stage with three wins in three games. With these excellent results, they will face the second place team from Group B: Portugal.

It will not be an easy match, but the crowd promises to encourage their players as it has done so far. The host team Russia were second in Group A, losing only to the Uruguayans.

Rep Your Team Proudly

Brazil Always Represents



The Brazilians couldn’t get left out of our list. Brazilians represent very well in Russia, on and off the field. In football, the Brazilian national team started scrimmaging, but its guaranteed the top spot in Group E. Now the opponent will be Mexico.

In the bleachers, there is no lack of motivation and creativity. The girl above paid respects with her designs. In addition to choosing a typical costume, she still painted her nails and face with the colors of the country.

Brazilians Shine In The Stands



Here is another supporter who represented Brazil well in Russia. The boy above painted his hair to cheer for Brazil against Costa Rica. And it worked! The Brazilian team won 2-0, with goals scored by Philippe Coutinho and Neymar in extra time. It was not the time to choke!

But now Tite’s team is guaranteed in and will face Mexico July 2, 2018. Another opportunity for the fans to beautify the stands and advance further in the Cup.

Big Moment, Big Fan



The Brazilian fans are huge! Nobody doubts that, but the supporter in the photo above wanted to make this even more evident. With this shirt, it was impossible not to attract the attention of the photographers!

He chose a massive costume for the game against Switzerland in the first round of the group stage of the 2018 World Cup. The confrontation ended in a tie, but that did not discourage the fans. If anything, you can expect fans to be louder for the next match.

It’s More Than Just Body Paint

This could not be more beautiful! The fan made a real work of art with his body. A painting worthy of a prize. Photographers caught him during the clash between Russia and Saudi Arabia, the opening of the 2018 World Cup.

At the time, the hosts applied a 5-0 thrashing on opponents. Hopefully, he shines again in the stands of Russia! We aren’t saying he is the reason for the beating Russia handed Saudi Arabia, but his juju could have helped.

Uruguayans Are All Smiles

Another Uruguayan supporter who wholely reflects the essence of the World Cup. Player Luis Suárez has contributed a lot to help win all three games so far. The team has passed on with ease to the last 16 of the World Cup.

Off the field, the country also effortlessly dazzles. Several fans have chosen elaborate and entertaining costumes to accompany the games of the competition. The beautiful girl above celebrated the triumph over Russia with a huge smile and what looks like a sun on her head.

Tunisia Will Leave Memories

Tunisia didn’t earn enough points to move ahead to the round of 16 in the 2018 World Cup. England and Belgium were both Group G qualifiers. The fans knew of the difficulties and still supported the group in the best way possible.

This is the second Tunisian fan that appears on our list, which proves they are very creative and excited to cheer. We hope that in the next competition they return to shine like this in the stands.
