What better way is there to spread the holiday cheer than with some awesome, holiday-inspired cosplay? No matter what you celebrate at this time of the year, I think we can all agree that tis the season for crafty cosplay. So let's take a look at some of the great holiday cosplay and the creative people that bring it to us!

Streetfighter was a favorite of mine when I was growing up and Megan Coffey nails this awesome Cammy cosplay. The Santa hat and plaid scarf really pull the whole thing together and gives it that awesome holiday vibe.
Cosplayer: Kitty Lappin

Oh what a lucky day to be Mista J! This fun and festive Harley Quinn cosplay is just one of a number of great pictures that can be found on Project-Nerd. I really like everything about this cosplay and would love to know where to find that hat!
Cosplayer: Lemon Bell Cosplay
Photographer: Madonia Photography
Tink's looking to spread a bit of holiday cheer with her festive outfit. Lemon Bell Cosplay is hands down the best Tinker Bell cosplay I think I've ever seen and everything about the outfit feels so natural (I mean, besides having wings and all).
I didn't forget about you lovely lady readers out there, don't worry. With mugs of butterbeer in hand and plenty of sweets to snack on, this Cosplayer captures the Potterverse holiday vibe. I might just have to try my hand at making one of the many butterbeer recipes floating around on the web.
Cosplayer: Jessica Nigri

It wouldn't be a cosplay list if Jessica Nigri didn't make an appearance on it in some form or fashion. Whether you're a fan or not you have to admit that she does some great League of Legends cosplays and this one is no exception.

Sure, the guy he's cosplaying as is kinda a sadistic and evil jerk but you have to admit, he does have some of that pretty boy charm going for him. Maybe he's like an onion and deep down under a number of layers Grimmjow is actually a really nice guy...

Miss Fortune was one of the first champs I played many years ago when I first heard of League of Legends and this cosplay is very well done. I guess if I was going to nitpick any is that there is a distinct lack of candy cane pistols but I won't hold it against her.

Another first for me was watching Inuyasha late night on Adult Swim growing up so of course, I had to find a holiday inspired cosplay for it. This is a spot on cosplay and was featured on the front page of DeviantArt -- which I think was well earned.
What better way than to finish off our slideshow than with the stars of the popular holiday movie The Grinch? Both of these costumes are very well done and true to the characters. I hope that these photos helped to get you into the holiday spirit and brought a smile to your day.
