Anime enthusiasts geared up for this year's Anime Expo at the Los Angeles Convention Center over four days during the long 4th of July weekend. About 60,000 (expected) fans attended the convention better known as AX, according to the L.A. Daily News. Many donned their best cosplay outfits inspired from manga, anime, comic books, and pop culture icons—and there certainly wasn't a shortage of Sailor Moon costumes. We have an awesome batch of fresh photos (many from our LAist Flickr contributors) that featured some of the most creative costumes.
