Getting your cosplay noticed is HARD!
Even if you have a really good traditional costume, sometimes it's a little too common to catch the eye of fans and photographers. This has given rise to a lot of hybrid cosplay. Hipster Disney Princesses. Pin-Up Star Wars. The Real Housewives of Westeros.
Cause, like they say, You Gotta Getta Gimmick!
A fave gimmick of nerds everywhere is steampunk. Fashionably Geek rounded up their favorite steampunk superheroes.
