The Day 2 Cosplayers of Anime Expo 2016

We have finally arrived at our second installment of pictures from this year’s Anime Expo. At day 2 of the prolific con we stumbled across robots, vampires, and monsters (both the digital and ecchi kind), oh my! Check them all out below! And if you are one of the following cosplayers and would like a copy of your picture feel free to send us an email at our “contact us” section. Which were your favorites? Let us know! And if you would like to get involved with us or have suggestions on what conventions we should cover, please give us a shout!


The Day 1 Cosplayers of Anime Expo 2016

Every year we try to run about and meet as many people as possible at conventions and get shots of the spectacular outfits they work so hard on. While attending our second year at the Los Angeles Anime Expo we managed to meet just a few folks on our first day (sorry, blame the airlines for the delays). But without further ado, here they are! We will be posting these on our facebook page as well later on, so be sure to tag yourself in them! And if you would like high res images please message us at our “contact us” section. We would be happy to work something out....


The Day 3 Cosplayers of Denver Comic Con 2016

The last installment of this three part series of pictures from the Denver Comic Con will be shorter (we promise). At the final day of DCC 2016, the outdoors hit a hundred (which is a lot in Colorado) and those that were not baking outside were indoors, drinking and showing off their cosplay. Conveniently, is also what we do best.  We were not able to remember the names of everything and everyone in this album, so if there is something we missed, leave us a comment. So nice we put it in twice. As always, if you are one of the cosplayers in this album and would like a higher...


The Day 2 Cosplayers of Denver Comic Con 2016

And we are back in the second of three installments of cosplay photos from this year’s Denver Comic Con. It is going to be a huge post (around 90 or so images) so bear with us. We refuse to be one of those “slideshow” sites in order to get more clicks. At any rate, if we met you on Saturday during Denver Comic Con there is a high chance we snagged a photo of you (unless you were cosplaying as Morgan and Jedah Dohma from Darkstalkers, sorry those didn’t turn out)! Check out all the photos below. And always, if you are one of the cosplayers below, and would like a...


The Denver Comic Con 2016 Day 1 Cosplayers

It is that time of year again. While attending this year’s Denver Comic Con we did our best to run about and get as many cosplay photos as humanly possible. As we were not able to make it to the whole first day, this album will be short. Fear not, this is only the first of three collections of pictures that we took. If you are one of the following cosplayers and would like a higher resolution image of your cosplay be sure to hit us up at our contact us section! Now, without further ado, see the cosplayers we met at day one below!   EDIT, Sorry we forgot...


The Cosplayers of Anime Southwest 2016

While attending the 2016 Anime Southwest convention in Thornton Colorado (put on by the people at Sukoshi Con) we met some great cosplayers. As always, if you are one of the cosplayers below and would like a high res version of the image feel free to email us and we will hook you up. In the meantime, check out the cosplayer’s hard work below! We enjoyed getting to meet everyone and we cannot wait until our next con in Denver at the Denver Comic Con! Hope to see you and your cosplay while there!


Top 7 Cosplays of Starfest 2016

Now that the full album of cosplayers is out, it is time for us to decide on our favorites while at Starfest 2016. Everyone had great outfits at Starfest this year and it is always great fun going out and meeting everyone. We hope to see you all next year! 7. Dr. Doom – Fantastic 4 There is nothing quite as classic as a good Dr. Doom cosplay. This cosplayer’s green outfit is made out of a plethora of different materials but assembled in a way that pays the perfect homage to the original Dr. Doom from the Fantastic 4 (no, not two terrible live-action films that have come out in the...


The Cosplayers of Starfest 2016

Now this year at Starfest in Denver Colorado, we tried to get as many pictures as possible of all the cosplayers that were there in attendance. We were not able to get them all, and some of the pictures did make the cut (that is our bad). Below is are all the folks we met. If you see a picture of yourself and would like a high resolution copy, send us a message over at info@bentobyte.co. Check it out below:   As always, we will be posting these images on our Facebook page so that you all can tag yourselves from the weekend’s activities!


The Cosplayers of Katuscon 2016

From February 12th through February 14th, BentoByte attended Katsucon 2016 at the Gaylord Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland. We had an absolute blast meeting so many different people and coming together as a community. The convention had its ups and downs (there was a small kitchen fire that caused the entire convention to be evacuated for about an hour) but all in all it was a fun convention. Below are some notable images taken over the three day span with various cosplay ranging from Star Wars to League of Legends. Kuzco himself even made an appearance and caused the crowd to go into a hilarious uproar. Hopefully, we here at BentoByte...


The Cosplayers of Colorado Anime Fest 2016

So after meandering about at the first (confirmed) annual Colorado Anime Fest we took pictures of all the lovely folks we met. Now unfortunately, due to a setting on my camera there were a couple of cosplayers that I wasn’t able to develop the photos of. So for those not included, I do apologize. That being said though, scope the rest of the awesome folks below:   Of course we will post all the images to our Facebook page, so should you want to tag yourself, you can certainly do so. If you are any of the folks in this album and want a copy of a higher res image send us...


Why Cosplay is Wonderful and Totally Worth It

Over the past year of running this site, going to conventions, and interviewing and hanging out with cosplayers, I have started to understand what drives people to cosplay and what makes cons so much fun. Fortunately, while at Nan Desu Kan in Denver, I was able to sit down with a few of them to ask all about the culture, the drive, and the reward behind why cosplay is wonderful. First and foremost, for those into anime, or rather fandom in general, who haven’t been to a con yet; do yourself a favor and go. Ignoring all the awesome panels, merch, artists, and activities (just for the sake of argument), cosplay and...


Top 10 Cosplays of NDK 2015

Nan Desu Kan is the largest anime convention in Colorado. And with anime conventions, there is cosplay, of course. So over the course of the three days spent at the Nan Desu Kan we saw a lot of cosplayers. Below are our top 10 favorites from the convention. There were a bunch of attendees and we did our best to get pictures of everyone, although we may not have all of them we certainly did our best. So without further ado here are our top 10 favorites (of everyone we were able to get a picture of). 10. Lilith – Darkstalkers 9. Doof Warrior – Mad Max: Fury Road Who could forget...


NDK Day 3 Cosplayers

As the con began to slow down, we still had a great opportunity to see more cosplayers. It may have been the last day of Nan Desu Kan, but everyone was still out and about flooding the 16th street mall in downtown Denver. Below are the people we met while attending NDK day 3! We were very lucky to meet such wonderful people and have an opportunity to get to know everyone and discuss our collective love of anime. As NDK day 3 came to a close, we at BentoByte can say that we had a ton of fun getting to see all the hard work everyone has been putting...


NDK Day 2 Cosplayers

Here is our NDK day 2 compilation album. To reiterate what we said in our last post, if we don’t know what an outfit is from and you do, leave us a comment so we can update it. Once all three days of images have been uploaded, we will post all the pictures across our social media sites. What were some of your favorites? Let us know in the comments below!


NDK Day 1 Cosplayers

This weekend was Nan Desu Kan here in Denver. While out and about we met some spectacular people and saw some intricate and fun cosplays. Below are some of the people we met while at NDK day 1 of the event! Now I am not always an expert on which shows, games, or other media source all of these characters derive from, so if you do, let us know in the comments so we can update the images. Over the next couple of days we will also be uploading these images across our many social media sites. So if you want to tag yourself, tag away!
