Anime NYC was held at the Javits Center on Manhattan’s West Side late last month, and being one of the biggest anime shows in the U.S., there was lots of cosplay there.

We’re featuring some of the best of it below, with everything snapped by Mineralblu. As usual, you’ll find the cosplayer’s social media info, the character they’re cosplaying as and the series they’re from watermarked on the image.

Actually curious because I know nothing about cosplay, so bare with me.

Are most of these men/woman hobbyist and true fans of the work they display or are many of them professional models/actors being paid to “influence” or whatever? Do they make these costumes themselves or do they pay a professional costume designer?
