The Wonderful Cosplay Costumes of WonderCon 2012

The Anaheim WonderCon took place this past weekend, March 16-18, and featured appearances by Hollywood stars such as Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender, Kristen Stewart, director Ridley Scott, Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum.

But some of the most interesting sights of WonderCon were the plethora of innovative cosplay outfits worn by fans. Cosplay is short for "costume play."

Here is a selection of photos I took at WonderCon 2012.
