This year's Anime Expo was full of fun examples of why geek girls LOVE cosplay.
2. Mashups - Disney + Star Wars = yes please! Mixing two popular genres is always a nerd favorite. Also puns, gosh do we love sci-fi puns.
3. BodyCon - Embracing what you actually look like and using it to your cosplay advantage is AWESOME. From plus size Ursula to scrawny street fighter, body confidence is the best way to pull off a successful character.
4. Flashbacks - Who doesn't love a childhood fantasy? Whether it's vintage video games or classic cartoons, you earn major creativity points and probably some care bear hugs.
5. Gratuitous Male Nudity - There is plenty of corset cleavage to go around at conventions, so some ab action is a nice treat for the ladies (and some of the gents). Plus, this geek girl loves her some bronies.
Thank you Anime Expo Cosplayers for giving us such inspiration!
