Anyone who has attended a comic or anime convention is all too familiar with cosplayers. Whether you're the person muttering "nerd" under your breath, or the one excitedly snapping photos of all the awesome designs, you can't miss those dedicated costumed fans. Did you know that cosplay is popular among horror fans, too? We naturally love dressing up anyway (Halloween!), so it makes total sense. More and more elaborate costumes are popping up at horror conventions everywhere these days. Here are some of the creepiest, coolest, most creative horror cosplays I have come across:
