These days the word "cosplay" has a tendency to drum up a certain kind of image. We're not looking to tear anyone down or criticize anyone for getting attention. But what we do want to acknowledge is that dressing up in a costume is for anybody who cares enough to dress up in one. There's no right way or wrong way to cosplay.

2. Chun-Li from Street Fighter

3. Tiana from The Princess and the Frog
This Tiana looks every bit the princess she becomes in the modern Disney classic.
4. Fiona from Shrek
Fiona always kicked butt but she hit a new level in Shrek 3D when she put on this battle gear. This cosplayer pulled it off perfectly.
