Japan Expo, one of the biggest anime shows on the planet, went down in Paris earlier this month. The cosplay was good.

When I say it’s one of the biggest in the world, I’m not kidding around: people come from across France (and Europe!) to celebrate, and this year over 250,000 were in attendance across the weekend of July 6-9.

Photographer (and games blogger) Stéphane You was there taking shots, and was kind enough to share some of the best of them with Kotaku so that those of us outside the Francosphere could enjoy them too.
