Deciding on a character to cosplay can be hard, depending on what you’re looking for. Many people attend conventions during the summer (the “prime” convention season) and may want to consider the weather when deciding on cosplays. These 12 series all offer plenty of heat-friendly options to last through the summer.
1. "One Piece"
2. "Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic"
Giving how this series is set in a Middle Eastern-type desert region, the outfits would have to be suitable for hot weather.
3. "Love Live!"
The characters have an extensive wardrobe, including plenty of summery clothes from swimsuits to school uniforms.
4. Any sports anime
5. "Kill la Kill"

While many of the trainers wear skirts and shorts, doing a "Pokemon" gijinka allows you to use whatever pieces you want to help you beat the heat.

9. "Puella Magi Madoka Magica"
10. "Final Fantasy"
11. "Strike Witches"
No pants – no problem.
12. "Street Fighter"
Not everyone is conscious of the weather when it comes to cosplay, but if you are, looking into any of these series will help you find a great costume that can beat the heat. Just make sure to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated during the con anyway. Happy cosplaying!
