It wasn’t a competition or a contest to see who put on the best outfit (or the best show), but rather, a gathering of cosplayers — and members of Cosplayers’ Cure, a hugely popular community site for cosplayers.
On hand were big name Japanese cosplayers as well as international cosplaying superstars, such as Alodia Gosiengfiao, Yaya Han, and Riki LeCotey.
If you’ve spent time in the internet, you’ve seen their work. Their work is great.
And so is all the cosplay on display here — the outfits, the props, and the poses are all top notch. So here they are, performing their cosplay right before your very eyes — live.
Above, cosplayer Alodia Gosiengfiao is Trish from Devil May Cry. Have a look at the gallery for the rest.
