What is the most popular cosplay character of all time?

Was thinking about this the other day.
If I was a betting man, I would probably guess it was Tifa from FF7 but I could think of at least 6 other costumes that would also be up there.

A few from Naruto(Sasuke, Itachi, etc.), Vash the Stampede, Inuyasha and I can't think of any more specific at the moment.

I'd say your right about Tifa, but their's always Yuna from FFX, or FFX-2. I don't know which costume of her's is more popular though??? Good question.

I would have to say Sailor Moon. She's been cosplayed in the US since before anime cons were common place. Odds are, as many people do characters from more recent anime, it tends to be more of a fad. Before Naruto it was InuYasha, and pretty soon the mass of cosplayers will start cosplaying from another series. I'd have to wager that over time Sailor Moon has been one of the most cosplayed.

Yuna, lol end of story. Look at 10 random cosplayers on cosplaylab and I'll assure you that 70% of them have cosplayed Yuna. xD;

Vash,Inuyasha and Yuna seem to be a right of passage for most cosplayers. but on a non specific note jedi's are everywhere and they seem to travel in packs (they travel single file to hide their numbers) .

Either Yuna , Sailor Moon, Naruto, or inuyasha because inuyasha and sailor moon were not only on tv (butchered, though there were still there..) Sailor moon was a lot of people's first love because it was a show they watched when they were kids.

If we are saying All Time in regards to Anime then I would say Sailor Moon hands down. If we are including everything else then I would say the Star Trek people win.

Just did a search for Vash, Ed Elric, Yuna, Naruto, and Sailor Moon on cosplaylab.
Yuna wins by a thousand.

I think this question can only be accurately answered if:

1) actual records were kept on how many times each character was cosplayed in the world, and
2) People don't cosplay any more, so there is no more pending cosplay to be counted.

"Of all time" includes future cosplay as well. Who knows if some future character might not eclipse all the previous ones in popularity? ^^

The one who's probably been cosplayed for the longest time in the US would probably be Sailor Moon.
