It might be said that 2013 was the year that cosplay hit the big time, with a primetime show on SyFy (and subsequent reaction to the reaction to that show on SyFy) featuring people absolutely devoted to the craft of embodying our favorite characters. In honor of cosplay's breakout year, we've rounded up a top ten list, 'cause, well, that's just what you do in December.

Screw Comic-Con and E3, though. Between Animate! Miami, Mizucon, and the exponentially expanding Florida Supercon, we have plenty of homespun talent with awe-inspiring work. Check out this year's favorites after the jump:

We must give a mention to our Hipster Disney characters. We liked 'em so much when they showed up at Supercon, we had to give them the Instagram treatment. It even inspired this writer to give herself the Ariel treatment on Halloween:

Part of your world? Nah. Too mainstream.

9. Balloon Mech Something

We're not sure what character this is (let us know in the comments!), but it's putting scores of birthday clowns to shame. That's thinking outside the sewing machine.
