Which costumes dominated the cosplay circuit this year? COSPA, one of the largest purveyors of anime, manga, and game costumes, released its list of top-sellers. The results? Fans love to dress up as the girls from Love Live just as much as they like to watch it. The top two spots were taken by Love Live Sunshine's Uranohoshi Girls' High School's summer uniform and the original Love Live's Otonokizaka High School's girls' uniform. In third place was another school uniform, the Toyogasaki High School uniform from Saekano.
COSPA's full top 10 list is:
- Love Live Sunshine's Uranohoshi Girls' High School's summer uniform
- Love Live's Otonokizaka High School's girls' uniform
- Saekano's Toyogasaki High School girls' uniform
- Sound! Euphonim's Kitauji High School girls' uniform
