While the movies and theme park attractions announced at D23 Expo have certainly stolen the headlines—seriously, did you see the model for Galaxy's Edge, the Star Wars-inspired land coming to Disneyland?!—we can't help but gush over the meticulously constructed, Disney-inspired cosplayers that roamed the expo hall.

We were floored by costumes both esoteric and instantly familiar, whether the zebra-bottom centaur from Fantasia, a glowing hook wielding Maui from Moana, a not-so-modest Maleficent or the Snow Queen, inspired not by Frozen's Elsa but concept art for the never-built Enchanted Snow Palace attraction.

There were plenty of Disneyland-inspired costumes to be found, too, including a Mickey-shaped pretzel, Dole Whip and an astounding recreation of the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, runaway train and all.
