Cosplay (short for "costume play") is where gamers and anime fans dress up like their favorite characters and either just show off the awesomeness of their costume or role play with other cosplayers. It's a way for creative and quirky geeks to pay homage to their animated heroes/heroines and, especially, for really cute geeky girls to make geeky guys' heads explode at ComiCons across the globe.
Typical cosplay outfits range from gaming characters, such as fighters from the Tekken, Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat series, characters in role playing games like Final Fantasy and characters from anime series like Sailor Moon, Dragonball Z and Naruto.
There are some pretty cool male cosplay costumes as well, but I'm a guy, so I'm not featuring those in this post. (winky face)
Cosplay is kind of fucked up though, because it gives geeky dudes the impression that just because these girls are into gaming and anime and other geek awesomeness that they're more gettable. Unfortunately, hot cosplay girls are still hot girls, and that generally spells bad news for the average nerd.
Anyway, less talky, more hot chicky.

I'm still not entirely sure what steampunk is, but steampunk cosplay is pretty hot!
I'm sort of on the fence about some of this cosplay stuff. Some of it crosses the line into creepy furry territory and I'm not into that at all. However, I'm definitely into hot girls dressing in sexy outfits and posing all over the place and I suppose I'm also guilty of that naive male geek fantasy that somehow the fact that these hot girls are paying tribute to nerdy stuff like cartoons and video games makes them more attainable than the average hot girl. While that may not be true, I'm still convinced that there's a smoking hot girl out there right now painted blue from head to toe who will rock my world if I can sing her a Foo Fighters song in Na'vi. That's right, I know what geek girls like and they fucking love the Foo Fighters.
