Cosplay comes in many forms; the weird, the wild, and the wondrous. The only thing that remains the same across all is the creative effort that everyone puts into their design.

Anime North is Canada’s largest anime convention, hosting roughly 30000 enthusiasts of anime, video games, and sci-fi every May. Each year hosts a strong collection of cosplayers who all deserve some recognition; this article serves to do just that. Look out for some of your favourites.
