Year after year, fan conventions are the best way to predict the most popular Halloween costumes thanks to the creativity and dedication of cosplayers.

There were so many jaw-dropping cosplays that, to be quite frank, this gallery might actually make picking a Halloween costume harder, but we're sure you won't mind. (Trust us, you've got to see the genderbent Sailor Moon group costume.)
