The 21 Least Sexy Cosplay Photos Ever

We're keeping it PG.

Since San Diego Comic-Con is just around the corner, it’s time that we talked about cosplay.

With big comic book conventions, there’s inevitably going to be myriad photo galleries of the sexiest costumes in San Diego, but that’s not why I’m here today.

I want to discuss perfectly good cosplay that could in no way be misconstrued as the least bit sexy. I’m not talking about embarrassing photos that will eventually be life-long regrets. These are the great costumes that don’t aim to be provocative in the least.

1. Maybe I’m just not enough of a hardcore Miyazaki fan, but there’s nothing sexy about Totoro.

2. The fashion of Quail Man has not aged well, even if you ignore the sweater vest-tee shirt combo. And those whitey tighties.
