Check out some of the best, gloriously geeky cosplay from Fan Expo Dallas 2018

A lot of people attend Fan Expo Dallas every year -- and for a lot of different reasons.

Others come for events like speed dating or fandom meetups.

But one of the biggest, best parts of any good pop culture convention is the cosplay. If you missed out on 2018's event, which took place at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center April 6-8, here's a look at the costume-studded red carpet.

Need to see how they looked in motion? We've got you covered there, too.
