Halloween Inspiration: 2017’s Best Cosplay

Cosplay is the most awesome expression of fandom that exists, giving die-hard sci-fi, fantasy, and gaming fans the ultimate outlet for their passion. Few other experiences give enthusiasts the opportunity to leave the regular lives they lead behind (if only for a brief period), assume the roles of their favorite characters from video games, movies, TV shows, and books, and be immersed in a fictional world.

Conventions like BlizzCon, Comic-Con, Anime Expo, PAX, Star Wars Celebration, and many more allow fans to step into alternate universes where creativity and imagination run wild. While most of us lack the creativity or skill to craft epic costumes like the most hardcore of fans, it doesn’t take an expert to appreciate the dedication and attention to detail that goes into their work. We scoured the internet and dug up the best cosplay of 2017 from fans and professionals, just in time to inspire some Halloween costume creativity for the rest of us.
