There’s been a lot of incredible cosplay over on our dedicated cosplay site throughout 2016, but this is the time of year when we sit down and work out which of it was the best.

Considering there’s a new post there almost every day, that was a lot of cosplay to go through, but we’re pretty confident this is the pick of the bunch.

And yes, we tried to get shots that weren’t of Overwatch or Witcher characters. Tried. But this is The Year Of Overwatch Cosplay, after all, (and it’s always The Year Of Witcher Cosplay) so there’s only so much we could do. Sorry.
