10 Amazing Costumes from #WonderCon 2015

WonderCon took place in Anaheim last weekend, and so many of the tens of thousands attendees were in costume. My head was constantly spinning. Cosplayers were all around the entrance of the convention center taking advantage of the outdoor setting for photos and so were photographers. That makes me think of a tip for cosplayers: Countless people will snap pictures of you with their phone cameras, but there are usually a contingent of professional photographers in attendance. Use social media to seek them out or ask other cosplayers about photographers they like to work with, and then you can carve out 10 or so minutes to get quality photos taken of your hard work.

My photos of cosplayers fall into the phone camera category because I’m always on the go. Several ensembles caught my eye over the weekend, but these are ten of my favorites:

I think this costume is an original design. The wings had a crazy number of articulation points. They could flat and fully extend up and out.
