If you've never been to a comics, video game or any other kind of nerdy convention, then these GIFs of hot cosplay girls might convince you to go.

There's just something about a hot girl dressing up in costume that speaks to our souls -- and other parts. Call it wish fulfillment or a fantasy come to life, but these babes wearing skintight clothing and acting like our favorite characters just does something to us to put smiles on our faces.

Check out the gallery of GIFs below to get a taste of what you could be seeing at your local convention!
