Manga Monday: Some Awesome Cosplay From 2014

I love cosplay. I love everything about it! I enjoy making costumes for myself as well as marveling at the creations that other people make. It’s a beautiful art form and such a great way to express your love for a particular series and/or character. 2014 had a lot of impressive cosplay from manga, anime, video games, movies and more.

The Cosplay Boom documentary series has helped to show off a lot of that amazing cosplay as well as given more insight about how and why people craft the things they do. Cosplay takes a lot of work and you can definitely see the passion these people feel for the projects they’ve created.
