Anime Expo has panels whose lines for entry stretch out into the hot sun, but everyone really comes for the cosplay. With an entire hall devoted to gaming and sets, Anime Expo rolls out the Crunchyroll orange carpet for cosplayers of all ages, sizes and nationalities. Some people come to hang out outside, even if they don't have a ticket. With more than 100,000 ticketed guests expected during the three-day convention, Anime Expo 2018 is set to be the biggest cosplay event in Los Angeles history. Here are some sneak peaks at this weekend's event from the first day of the convention.

Anime Expo runs through Sunday, July 10; one-day tickets are $80 here.
