Comic Market, aka Comiket is a bi-annual 3-day indie manga event. But it's not just about manga. As the biggest and most famous indie manga event in Japan, cosplayers come out in droves. And this year's winter Comiket 85 was no different.

Be it sweltering heat or frigid cold, if there are crowds of fans gathered, there will be cosplayers. Cosplay blog Asagawo Blog was at Comiket for all three days taking pictures. From the wacky to the creative, from the cool to the crazy, take a look at a sample of this winter's costumed madness. (Lotta Kan Colle this time...)
