Comiket 86 has officially begun, and while the fan-made and original doujinshis are considered the stars of the event, the cosplays are also considered as one of Comiket’s most popular draws. We take a look at some of Day 1’s cosplays from the awesome and the cute to the ones that are just plain weird.

Let’s start things off over at AU’s Yowamushi Pedal Van where the company’s cosplayers have dressed up as the YowaPe characters in order to be human WiFi hotspots.


The cosplayer who actually stole the show was this Shimakaze cosplayer who attracted legions of photographers who wanted her to pose for their cameras. Let’s just say that her getting mobbed by photographers would be a bit of an understatement.

Meanwhile, another Kantai Collection cosplayer also grabbed some attention as he cosplayed Akagi’s… Flight Deck?!


And speaking of weird Kantai Collection cosplayers… I’m not even… Nope! (photo by @ IoryHamon)


 Yes, the weird ones just make the event a whole lot more awesome, like this guy cosplaying Bleach manga creator Tite Kubo (photo by @ Futa910)


While Kubo-sensei is known for his bulging muscles, the swimmers from Free! are known for abs, as this group cosplay would show (photos by @ ASCEUSAKO and Comike_sokuhou)


They weren’t the only Free! cosplay group though…

With the hot summer sun bearing down, it’s no surprise that some cosplayers would be um… less clothed. (photo by @ Necobike)


Here’s that certain gourmand from Tokyo Ghoul complete with a napkin with Kaneki’s blood… or some ketchup. (Photo by @ MtmnY)


This man may not be cosplaying, but he brought bunnies so your argument is invalid!


Um… OK, nothing to see here, moving on… (photo by Asiihoumiushi)


Can somebody please explain what the heck is going on here? (Photo by @ Rumia_nanoka)


He was an ordinary cosplayer… until he took an arrow to the knee! (photo by @ Ito_yasu3401)


This guy brought his A game with a quality Kamen Rider cosplay (pjoto by @ MtmnY)


The summer heat may have gotten a bit cooler with Elsa


This pair of Love Live! cosplayers also got a bit of attention


Well, happy birthday!

Going to comiket, you have to be ready, like this guy, he came prepared!


…and then there’s LADY BEARD… is that… Sailor Moon?!


Here’s some of the great cosplays compiled by 0takomu… And yes, Sailor Ojii was there and that Minecraft cosplayer is awesome

And here’s some of the Day 1 cosplays as compiled by Radio Kaikan. That Gon cosplayer and Mel Kishida cosplayer kinda stole the show, right? Oh and Tetsujin and them Silent Hill nurses looked pretty awesome.
