There will never be a time that I’ll get tired of anthropomorphism of critters in cosplay. It usually takes a lot of creativity to translate non-human characters into a solid costume, which is why I friggin’ love the Lunala and Shenron costumes. I feel like the Lunala cosplay could also double as a trainer outfit. Like, imagine if you make the crest of the summit to fight the Elite Four and one of them is wearing that outfit. That’s probably the exact moment you’ll realize you’ve made a horrible mistake.

In other news, once again, I am blessed with another fabulous best girl Froppy cosplayer, she looks fantastic! There’s always a lot of great MHA cosplay, it seems. Speaking of...

...that fantasy-AU Bakugou. I suddenly feel the need to chug a gallon of water.
