Looking back over the illustrious history of cosplay, it's pretty obvious that a whole lot has changed since Forrest J. Ackerman became the first man to dress up for a convention way back in 1939 (here's the pic!).

From sexy Princess Leias, to weird and wonderful Japanese manga characters, we've just about seen it all. But every now and then, something comes along that has me WTFing all over again.


Which is exactly what happened when I saw the awesomely crazy cosplay outfits below. They're sexy, but not in the conventional way. They're weird, but not the creepy way. Put simply, I love them but I'm not quite sure why.

Scroll down for 15 of the most unexpectedly sexy cosplay outfits in the world!
