Cosplay Invades Los Angeles! Tons of Pictures From Anime Expo 2011

     July 1, 2011

Just a little while ago, I was at the Los Angeles Convention Center taking tons of pictures at this year’s Anime Expo.  While the Expo used to be held in Anaheim, it moved to downtown L.A. a few years ago so they could accommodate more people.  And based on the crowds the past two years, it was a smart move.

While I’ve attended many conventions, the thing that really impresses me about Anime Expo is the level of fan participation. A huge percentage of the crowd dresses up.  While Comic-Con may be more popular, Anime Expo beats it in terms of attendee participation.  At any rate, I went to the Expo to take pictures of people in costume, and if you hit the jump, you’ll see almost 70 images.  Some are really well done.
