Replicate This: Fashion – Our fav Cosplay from SDCC & Nerd HQ ’15

There are many reasons to attend San Diego Comic Con and any of the offsite events such as Nerd HQ. One of the things I look forward to seeing every year is the cosplay. As a cosplayer myself, I understand the time, effort, and heart that goes into making a cosplay just right and then having to survive in the San Diego heat in said cosplay. It takes some commitment, sweat (okay lots and lots of sweat!), and love. Cosplay is not merely an excuse to play dress-up (who really needs an excuse to do that?).  For some it is a way of life. Speaking from experience, many people start planning out their cosplay a year or at the very least several months in advance (I am already planning mine for next year!). I was able to catch many great cosplays myself, among them are the following:
