With our little trip around the world in pursuit of the best individual purveyors of the art of cosplay now at an end, this weekly feature returns to business as usual.

Namely, highlighting the best damn cosplay photos of the last seven days.

OK, so that's a slight stretch in this case, as we've got a little catching up to do over the last few big events, but most of these are close enough!

Fancy Pants is a look at the world of cosplay (costume play), where people dress up as their favorite video game characters. Sometimes it works! Sometimes it...yeah.
