WonderCon, Anime Expo, Monsterpalooza, East L.A. Comic Con, the Renaissance Pleasure Faire … we're only a little more than halfway through 2017, and there's already been a gazillion occasions for Angelenos to show off their best cosplay. And, boy, have they. Back in late March at WonderCon, we spotted elaborate superhero get-ups; Monsterpalooza was replete with ghouls — including a sexy gremlin; and at East L.A. Comic Con we saw one of the cutest Nacho Libre cosplayers on the planet. San Diego's Comic-Con is right around the corner, but in the meantime feast your eyes and get inspiration from these colorful costumed locals.
