When the New York Post published a scathing critique of cosplay -- calling enthusiasts "weird" and "confused" -- Miami-area cosplayer Jonathan Stryker defended his scene, calling it "the ultimate art form…[combining] make-up, sewing, painting, sculpting, crafting, designing, acting, etc."

Now Stryker is behind a project to highlight the best of Florida's cosplayers -- particularly its female "geeksters."

"Initially, it was planned to have both male and female cosplayers, but due to the lack of submissions from male cosplayers, only female cosplayers were cast," Stryker notes on his Kickstarter microfunding page.

The 2014 calendar will feature 25 of the state's "sexiest and most talented cosplayers."

The team spent a month shooting the ladies all over South Florida. Check below for a sneak peek at the 2014 Cosplay Calendar.
