Our 15 Favorite Photos from Last Weekend's AnimeFest

Last weekend the Sheraton Hotel Dallas was home to AnimeFest 2013, a four-day celebration of gaming and animation culture. There were panels, parties, and more costumes than you could shake a four-foot laser sword at.

We sent photographer Ed Steele out to find his favorite monsters, and well, he might have outdone himself. This crowd's outfits were so phenomenal that one blog post cannot contain them. We'll have a slideshow of all the magic up in a bit, until then satisfy your urge for hyper-creative costuming here, with our 15 favorite photos.
