Every year, downtown Seattle hosts a convention centered on Japanese popular culture called Sakura Con.  The event is home to some of the most numerous displays of gaming and anime cosplay anywhere in the world.  This year saw cosplayers dressed as everyone from Solid Snake to Cloud Strife and Optimus Prime.  Here are some of the highlights from the convention.

    One of the chicks in the FFX photo (on the left) looks like she has a mostache :(?

    Don’t think I would every cosplay in my life, you either look really good or really silly in these things.

    I love Crono and Frog though, can’t say I’ve seen many of those. Also is that the whole cast of “Juushin Enbu”? Pretty cool costumes.

    The frog one was pretty nice to see,
    however pretty unecessary to go screaming out loud ugly ,mind your own business

    Ok, no offence to the left girl in the FFX cosplay photo but, please consider body measurements when you choose our costume. and personally, I woudn’t want to walk in such a costume even if I had the figure of a supermodel…. That tidus cosplay scares the hell out of me too. The rikku-cosplay looks pretty good though.
