There's a fashion week for everyone. This past weekend, DTLA was once again transformed into a runway by the colorful cast of characters who attended the 22nd annual Anime Expo (now in its sixth year in LA), which was expected to draw over 50,000 fans to the LA Convention Center.
We stopped by the major cosplay gathering on Saturday to scope out the scene and snap some of our favorite looks, from Game of Thrones' Daenerys Targaryen to a pack of Chippendales-style Pokemon to a dude dressed as that wacky waving inflatable tube man (no joke, he started a serious arm flailing dance party). Scroll through our gallery to see some of the most cutest to creepiest outfits that caught our eye during just one afternoon of the four-day-long festivities.
