GotGame was invited to attend FanimeCon 2018 this past weekend, which was home to some really impressive cosplay. With a focus on video games, we searched far and wide for some of the best cosplays Fanime had to offer. Overwatch continues to be a very popular franchise, with a lot of alternate skins to select from now. Monster Hunter cosplayers came in full force after the success of Monster Hunter World. With so many amazing cosplayers, we couldn’t get to them all, but we still managed to get a good amount for our gallery. All cosplayers have given their consent and we have made sure to credit the ones that provided the information
