As summer keeps on going, we can feel ourselves praying for blasting air conditioners at every con we attend. If not for us, then for the brave cosplayers in costume.

It's so hot that our brains are frying, but that's not stopping us from enjoying all of the great costumes that have been popping up at cons. One popular thing to do is to join a cosplay group. Not only does it make for a more cohesive cosplay experience, but there's safety in numbers.

Above, we've got a bevy of group shots that show how it's more fun to cosplay together. Going solo is also fine, but who doesn't like company? Check out the album above and gather your own buds in order to make plans for a cosplay group at a con coming up soon!

All shots were taken by photographer Martin Wong. It's only right to send him some love and appreciate all of his other work.

WANT TO CONTRIBUTE?

Are you a cosplayer or a cosplay photographer? Maybe you’re both! If you have a particular cosplay or portfolio you’d like us to check out, please submit a link to John-at-ArcadeSushi.com. Additionally, if there are any cosplayers or photographers that we’ve highlighted that wish their works to be removed, please reach out to let us know.
