Cosplayers' Cure Night was a showcase of some truly great cosplay. Kotaku was around before the event (snapping pictures), but we had to retire for the evening before it kicked off. What can I say, our bed time is so early!

Sadly, we missed the event. However, Japanese game site 4Gamer was on hand for the festivities and snapped a bajillion photos. Some of the cosplayers should look familiar; some won't. All of them are incredibly talented and look as though they pulled off great performances.
