Cosplay Reference started in 2009 when a group of cosplayers decided to start a cosplay fansite dedicated to providing high quality image references, tutorials, and information for cosplayers everywhere! We consist of a small, dedicated group that will bring you the most up to date info on conventions, anime, manga, and most of all costumes! We also wanted to create a place where cosplayers could get showcased for their costumes. For every reference we have, we hope to have one actual cosplayer photo alongside it. That way we can give cosplayers a bit of time to shine! Many cosplayers want to get seen, so Cosplay Reference is a good way to get there! Please feel free to look around and to visit us at www.cosplayreference.com!
