2014 was an embarrassment of riches when it came to great cosplay, and we couldn't pick just one favorite. So you're getting 100. Congratulations!

With 2014 rapidly coming to a close, you might have noticed that The Escapist is taking a look back on 2014 and awarding the best of the year in all categories we cover (see our best of the year nominees here.) Well, almost all. If you're particularly astute, you've also noticed that while we here on the Comics and Cosplay channel have nominated comics for end of the year awards, we didn't actually nominate any cosplayers.

That's because 2014 has been an absolute goldmine of incredible cosplay, and there was almost too much to pick from. Whether it was great video game cosplay at the various PAX conventions, the insanely competitive outfits on display at San Diego Comic-Con, the nuclear explosion of artistry that is Dragoncon, or any other the other conventions and events we covered, we were, time and time again, completely blown away.

As a result, we couldn't narrow our selections down to just 1 "best of". But lucky for you, our indecision is your gain, because we're celebrating the year in cosplay by showcasing our 100 favorite costumes from throughout the year. Starting today and continuing until the end of the year, stay tuned for galleries curated by members of the Comics and Cosplay team. Whether you made your first costume, have been cosplaying for years, pricked your fingers sticking in pins, or styled that wig just right, we want to applaud you for your awesome work (and maybe ask for some advice for our next costume).

First up, Carly Smith's 20 favorites. Click on, O readers, and see what she chose.
