The Coolest Cosplay from GenCon 2011!

Chainmail Bikinis and Warhammer 40K Inquisitors: The Coolest Cosplay from GenCon 2011!

GenCon 2011 was a mass of costumes from every area of pop culture. Video games, movies, anime, RPGs, and comic characters brushed shoulders with tens of thousands of attendees.

While there were a few definite trends (Steampunk, Homestuck, schoolgirls, kilts), it was impossible to capture more than a fraction of the awesome cosplayers. Here are some of our favorite costumes from this year.

The host of the Glitter Guild burlesque, MsPixy as Slave Leia. This entire show — burlesque, boylesque, comediennes and a magician — were uproariously funny, and the crowd adored them.
