Every year Anime Expo comes to the Los Angeles Convention Center bringing the best in anime and every year the cosplay gets more and more impressive!
It is the largest pop culture convention in Los Angeles, attracting over 100,000 attendees that flood the Los Angeles Convention Center and the surrounding areas in colorful armor, outfits and spirit!
The Convention was so well-attended this year that Anime Expo is expanding to five days in 2017, which will likely bring in tens of thousands more fans!
From original creation cosplay outfits made by talented crafts people to screen-accurate costumes, they spend hundreds of hours and lots of money to create amazing cosplay.
They spend hours in the sun to get just the right photo to share with the world all the hard work that goes into each and every cosplay outfit.
From the looks of Anime Expo, cosplay is sure to continue growing and become a huge industry for talented young fans of anime, video games, superhero and geek movies.
No matter what TV series, animated series, video game or movie you love, it is sure to be worn by some cosplaying fan at Anime Expo.
The event reminded us of the throngs of fans and cosplayers that line the streets of San Diego for San Diego Comic Con International every year in Mid July.
With all the amazing cosplay at Anime Expo, we're sure that we only saw a small sampling of amazing outfits, but we wanted to share these with you!
From screen-accurate costuming to mashups of your favorite fandoms, Anime Expo brings out an amazing array of talented people who spend hours of their days in front of a throng of photographers and convention-goers!
