Check out the awesome cosplay at Comiket 87! 【Photos, Photos, and more photos】

It’s the end of December and that can mean only one thing: Comiket is in full swing! Today was only the first day, but the cosplay (and the crowds) were utterly amazing. With about half a million people expected to visit over the three-day event at Tokyo Big Sight, you should hardly be surprised that people from all over Japan–and some from around the world–flock to the doujinshi spectacular.

We headed down on Sunday afternoon and captured a few photos of our favorite cosplayers. And by “a few” we mean “a metric crapton.”
The weather was a bit chilly, but perfect for walking around in circles for hours on end. At least for those of us in normal clothes. We honestly have no idea how all the skin-baring fans kept their extremities from going numb–though there were more than a few folks with goosebumps, so we guess they’re not super-human after all!

If you’ve never been to Comiket before, here’s the view that greats you upon ascending the stairs of Big Sight–people, there are a lot of them!

This is the 87th Comiket–a full 39 years have passed since the very first convention in 1972. Yep, Comiket is older than most of its attendees!

But we’re not here to talk about the crowd or history–we’re here to look at awesome costumes! So, without further ado, we present some of our favorite cosplay from Comiket’s three designated cosplay areas!

This was literally the first cosplayer we saw.

His sign reads, “I did it! I made the thing that you occasionally use with the toilet!”
