The Ten Coolest Cosplays at Animate! Miami
This past weekend, cosplayers far and wide descended upon the Miami Airport Convention Center to take part in Animate! Miami. With SyFy's hit reality show Heroes of Cosplay filming all three days -- and with show star Yaya Han as one of the main competition's judges -- the scene really brought it. We'll hopefully get to see a whole bunch of it when the episode airs.
Until then, check out a few of our favorites:

9. Oogie Boogie
Sometimes the simplest cosplays, well-executed, can be quite impactful. Andrew took burlap and bubble wrap and turned it into a welcome nightmare (before Christmas). Even better was his showmanship on the main stage, where he sang the Oogie Boogie song acapella to the delight of the audience.Next Page
