When in Rome, cosplay as the Romans do.

The Animate! Miami convention this past weekend was a welcome sight in the normally summer and fall-heavy convention circuit. While smaller than its Florida Supercon counterpart, the atmosphere was that of a con on the rise, underlined by full parking lots and long lines of adoring fans wanting autographs from animation stars.

The attendees did not disappoint, contributing to not one, but three cosplay competitions throughout the weekend. Check out some of the coolest, awe (or 'aww')-inspiring, and clever outfits this weekend had to offer after the jump.

5. Master Chief (HALO)
Travis

There may have been plenty of these at the con, but this guy took the cake by flying the UNSC flag high and staking his claim as Master of Chiefs. As for the sweltering heat in that thing? This chief claims, "It's just a matter of staying hydrated." We didn't ask how he pees.

4. Rufioh Nitram (Homestuck)
Lotus Seishin

Great homespun (pun intended) ingenuity: The horns? Painted pool noodles. The grey arms? Stockings with fake nails rather than annoying body paint. The hardest part of the whole operation is trying to navigate crowds with those wings of his: "But if I walk a certain way, the crowds part for me." Cool.
