Our 30 Favorite FanimeCon 2012 Cosplay Pictures By David Ngo

Hipster Belle, Hipster Ariel, and Hipster Rapunzel [via]

If you’ve been following our cosplay posts, you’ve already seen the work of David Ngo, AKA DTJAAAAM. He’s a writer and photographer for Giant Fire Breathing Robot, and pictures from his well-shot, massive cosplay galleries have appeared at several popular websites and in magazines. Anytime I spot his copyright at the bottom of a photograph, I know the picture deserves a closer look because it’s probably a well-made and/or funny costume.

Ngo made it to FanimeCon 2012 last month and posted OVER 9000!!! over 900 photographs from the convention. I liked so many of the photos that it would seem strange to add just one to each Wednesday cosplay post for the next year. Instead, we’ve collected 30 of our favorite David “DTJAAAAM” Ngo photographs from FanimeCon 2012 below. You can view the other 900+ pictures here and keep up with Ngo’s work on Facebook and Twitter.
