When Cosplay Gets Wild And Wonderful

This weekend, the winter Wonder Festival barreled through Tokyo. The twice a year event is primarily for figurines, but hey, where there are nerds, there are cosplaying nerds.

Here’s a sample of some of the cosplay on hand, with photos from Gigazine, Akiba Blog, Otaku.com, and Asagawo Blog. Some of the most interesting cosplay were the ones in which characters were reworked or reimagined entirely. That straight up Raiden ain’t half bad, either.
