Otakon 09: East Coast has all the evil, awesome, and awe-inspiring cosplay

10:00 PM on 07.19.2009 // Brad Rice

Looking at the cosplay between Anime Expo and here, there sure was a big difference. While Anime Expo had some really impressive cosplay, like the Gurren Lagann cosplayer, Otakon has a higher level of overall quality. I've always attributed it to the fashion and art schools that populate the East coast, and how that produces the better stuff.

So down below you'll find some of the cosplay shots that were scattered about on Saturday and Sunday, with some of the really eye-grabbing cosplay.

Anything that really caught your eye there? And any great cosplay photos you guys have for yourselves from Otakon?
