This year, our eyes beheld some truly innovative and mind-blowing cosplay. We saw gender-swapped characters, Evil Dead hats, and elaborate costumes that included as many as five cosplayers. Not to mention Rockabilly Batman, Superhero Princesses, Furry Jesus, and a heap of characters straight out of Brian K. Vaughan's Saga.
We sat down and skimmed through every convention gallery, cosplaying website and halloween how-to guide and came up with our picks for the very best cosplay creations from 2012. Here they are.
