Japan Expo '12: European Cosplay Gathering highlights

The reputation of Paris as being uber fashionable was not lost at Japan Expo this year. In fact, I was totally blown away by how amazingly well crafted and designed all the  cosplay was. Were you impressed by the action at the World Cosplay Summit? The action continued at the amazing display of creativity and hard work at the European Cosplay Gathering. I've seen Hollywood blockbusters with less production value than the awesome show that was put on.

Unfortunately due to some scheduling conflicts I wasn't able to stay for the whole show, but I hope you get a taste of the sensory overload that's European cosplay. Massive props to the organizers of the event who completely filled the massive venue. After you peep our highlights, make sure to head over to ECG's official Youtube page to check out the event in closer detail. Something tells me they probably had a better camera than I was packing.
