San Diego Comic-Con is perhaps the biggest convention of the best cosplayers in the entire world, with thousands of fans preparing in anticipation every year. It combines both pop and geek culture while encompassing many genres and media, shown in the cosplay costumes. This year, Comic-Con took place between the 19th and 22nd of July and was celebrated by thousands of fans, geeks and cosplayers.

Cosplay is the practice of dressing up as a character from a book, movie or video game, most of whom come from the Japanese genre manga or anime. The best cosplay outfit is usually nominated in some way so Comic Cons might get a tiny bit competitive.

While most people get excited about the various trailers that drop during the event, or appearances by their favorite celebrities, others use the opportunity to show their cosplay ideas and skills by dressing up as their favorite characters. The most detailed cosplay outfits always receive a lot of attention from fellow character fans. Just as the last year, we have compiled a list of the best cosplays from 2018 Comic Con. Scroll down below to check out the best anime cosplays and don't forget to comment and vote for your favorites!
