Well tomorrow I'll pick up my badge and event tickets for Anime Expo, and I guess I should remember why I started this blog in the first place...to compile a cosplay scavenger hunt list....

Well I'm packed for AX, and my costumes are ready to go, so I guess I have a little time to come up with a top 50 hit list for cosplay:
