Went to my first comicon with some friends this weekend, and never expected the pride and passion that goes into these costumes.
Some of these guys have celebrity status and everywhere you go they all know each other and take pride in the detail in each others costumes.

Here are some pics I took that day

Cosplay is a type of performance art in which fans wear costumes with accessories that represent a specific character or idea. Drawn together by similar interests, Cosplayers often interact to create a subculture centered on role playing.

Most people uneducated in the world was of the opinion cosplay first gained popularity through loyalists of the original Star Trek series (to which comic con and other similar events owe their existence) but favorite sources include broader Sci Fi and TV, comic books, anime and manga, and video games (some are actually creative enough to opt for their own character or idea creations) inanimate objects are given anthropomorphic forms and it is not unusual to see gender switching (women are free to recreate male characters as their own female interpretation) and men secure enough in their sexuality often dress as female characters.
