From the moment I happened upon her instagram account 2 years ago, I’ve been a fan of Chubear. Her amazing makeup skills, prolific fun cosplay choices, and openly goofball personality have definitely helped propel her into her much deserved cosplay senpai status.
I had the chance to sit down and derp around with Chubear during Anime Expo to talk more about what got her into cosplay, the cosplay community, and her experiences as a guest at Anime Expo 2015.
Another year of Anime Expo flew by, closing it’s 24th year.
As we’re coming down from our AX high, and gearing up for San Diego Comic Con, here’s a cool round up of cosplayers and cosplay gatherings we saw this year.
This year there was an abundance of love for classic shoujo manga like Sailor Moon, classic CLAMP Series, League of Legends. We also appreciated the abundance of sport anime cosplay, and the funny memes.
Many cosplayers were also able to make use of the pre-made photo sets that AX brings back every year, as well as the cosplay repair stations.
What other cosplays did you guys enjoy at AX this year?

When it was announced that Sony was attempting a remake of the 90s cult classic “The Craft” last month, the internet let out a collective groan.
Who can blame them after seeing that watered down outrageously bad Jem trailer?
However, the announcement did get my nostalgia wheels turning.
What else has witches with traits that can be divided into four?
I enlisted the help of my two Potter friends (who were free) in recreating ‘The Craft’ movie poster in a Potteresque fashion.
If you’ve known me for at least five seconds, you’ll know that Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion is one of my favorite anime. It is the beautiful yet explosive heartbreaking tale of an exiled prince-turned-terrorist and his best friend.
And Pizza Hut. What’s not to love? And you have to have a lot of love to cosplay Code Geass. From the student uniforms to the elegant ballgowns, one has to do a lot of work to put into bringing the outfits to life.
The Comic Bug stepped it up several notches during this year’s Free Comic Book Day — for the first time, our favorite comic book store hosted Free Comic-Con Day! The event was held at the Culver City Teen Center and housed a large artist alley inside the building, which overflowed into the parking lot. That’s where we set up shop along with our fellow creators and geeks.

Attack on Titan took the cosplay world by storm when the 2013 anime broke onto the scene and it hasn’t let go since. Cosplayers all over the world devoted their hearts to the colossal task of bringing the series to life and it was a long arduous journey full of blood, sweat and tears for many. I know this because I cosplay Mikasa and I felt like getting eaten by a titan might have been less painful than creating everything from scratch. The costumes and props themselves require so much attention to detail – from the maze of a full body harness to the daunting Three Dimensional Maneuver Gear – that seeing people produce such craftsmanship fills my heart with great pride. As a fellow Attack on Titan cosplayer, I SALUTE YOU!
Check out a slice of the cosplay that blew my mind below!
