When it comes to cosplay (the practice of dressing up as a favorite character), the pros put our Halloween costumes to shame. These dedicated fans know how to rock over-the-top makeup, costumes, and accessories in order to transform themselves into characters from their favorite comic books, films, and books.
In hopes of giving you a little costume inspiration from the best, we’ve rounded up our favorite cosplay looks from Instagram. While our spooky season looks will likely pale in comparison, we can at least get a few tips from those who know how to dress up properly.
