If the cosplay typically seen at anime conventions is a little too extreme for you, take a look at these toned down cosplay alternates.  The clothing and style of beloved anime and cartoon characters from all over the world have been transformed into fashionable clothing for everyday wear.   Who knew Lisa Simpson’s orange paper bag dress could look sexy and that taking a fashion cue from Papa Smurf would result in a decent getup?

Check out these cosplay inspired outfits from the likes of Japan’s Sailor Moon, England’s Paddington Bear, America’s Popeye, and many more.




These fantastic outfits were actually put together by a blogger at B For Bel and can actually be purchased as sets from Cartoon Closets via Amazon, though prices can run a little high for some of the more eccentric items.
