    Cosplay is fun no matter what but when you've been doing it a few years, you start to think outside the box and see how you can mix things up a bit. There's also those first-timers out there who want to start with something a little less complicated (what am I saying, cosplay is always complicated!) that's more of an outfit than a costume yet still portrays their favorite character. In the last few years, genderswap and alternative versions of costumes have gotten popular in the cosplay world. Here's a collection of just those kinds of cosplays from Comic-Con International 2012.
