WonderCon 2023 Day 3: 76 Incredible Images of Cosplay Greatness

We're wrapping up our look at three days' worth of cosplayers & their cosplay greatness from this past weekend's WonderCon 2023.

WonderCon 2023 cosplay came to a triumphant end this past Sunday as the sun sets on this year's convention. Some might say that the best was saved for last as most of the Masquerade, WonderCon's annual cosplay contest, contestants and cosplayers just looking to show off strutted their stuff at the convention center. Comic books, movies, television, and gaming characters brought to magnificent life by fans and artists flooded the area. Located at the Anaheim Convention Center, just across the street from Disneyland, geeks and pop-culture enthusiasts swarmed back to WonderCon 2023 to show off their best and most creative cosplays to the masses. Foam, metal, fabric, feathers, stitching, plastic, cardboard, and hot glue all come together to form some of the most detailed and innovative homages to some of comics and pop culture's biggest names. Below are some examples of the third day of WonderCon 2023 cosplayers and the ingenuity that was on display.  The talented artists represented Thomas and Martha Wayne, The Addams Family, the Question, The Penguin, Hollywood Hulk Hogan, and Geoffrey the Giraffe, just to name a few.
