Playing With Style

As always, I liked to round off my coverage of the Comic & Entertainment Expos by taking a look at the cosplayers from each event.

_DSC2731
This is always one the things I look forward to seeing most at the conventions. You never really know what to expect…

_DSC2699
…and majority of the time you’ll be blown away at how much effort a lot of these guys and gals put into these amazing outfits.

_DSC2726
Glad to see one of my favourite Street Fighter characters hasn’t been forgotten.

_DSC2730
I would love to have a Pip-Boy of my own.

_DSC2743
It’s always nice to see families come out together for events like this as there’s always something for everyone to enjoy.

_DSC2753
Remember those videos from Japan with those gigantic Pikachu’s all dancing around? Yeah this is basically like that.

_DSC2760
Priscilla and Titus were also out that weekend in their new Pokemon Trainer outfits!

_DSC2764
Sean was in his Desert Batman cosplay and found himself a crime-fighting friend.

_DSC2817
He would later switch to his Arkham Batman suite for the next days fesitivities.

_DSC2792
Jessica in her newly completed Valkyrie cosplay…

_DSC2801
…and other Sean in his new Gohan cosplay!

_DSC3024
Last but not least in our group was Kimmie with her badass looking Black Canary outfit.

_DSC2803
Unfortunately we didn’t really get a chance to do some proper photos of every ones new outfits, but I’m sure we will later on this year.

_DSC2812
This is only the second Samus cosplay I’ve ever seen. Keep ‘em coming!

_DSC2883
Surface never, vault forever!

_DSC2900
Awesome looking Batman outfit complete with flashing LED’s. I love LED’s.

_DSC2920
While we’re on the topic of awesome looking cosplays, I thought this Minecraft Steve was looking fantastic. Can’t imagine that it was quite comfortable to walk in though…

_DSC2932
I’m a sucker for nurses. Oh, and uh…Pyramid Heads…

_DSC2947
Every time I see a League Of Legends cosplay it makes me miss playing the game a little bit more. I can’t wait to watch World Finals later this year!

_DSC2948
Those eyes…

_DSC2955
Photos really don’t do it justice but the wingspan on this outfit was HUGE!

_DSC2968
Dragon Ball cosplays are pretty popular these days but this is the first time I’ve seen an Android 16 cosplay.

_DSC2977
Again some very impressive and well done wings.

_DSC2999
Pretty sure this joyful group of ladies all did Dragon Age last year. Looks like this years theme is Marvel!

_DSC3002
An UNREAL looking Joker cosplay. Everything about this was just perfect.

_DSC3160
One of the many impressive cosplays from DMacStudios.

_DSC3173
Some of the Disney princesses all looking lovely.

_DSC3179
Elmo looking like he’s having a good time…

_DSC3218
…whereas the rest of his friends on the other hand not so much…

_DSC3183
I can’t help but wonder what kind of face people with masks are making at me when I take their photo…

_DSC3196
Perfect looking visor with that blue light strip!

_DSC3199
40% awesome baby!

_DSC3201
Fate/stay night cosplays are rather rare so I was pretty excited to see this Saber at the expo.

_DSC3210
Epic looking Borderlands duo.

_DSC3238
An incredibly detailed Iron Man suit that even features a motorized mask that opens and closes. I think this is about as close to the real thing as it gets!

_DSC3253
Another first time cosplay I’ve ever seen was this Juri looking ready to take on anyone.

_DSC3255
I really enjoyed this interesting No-Face variation.

_DSC3275
Despite how popular she is, I rarely ever see similar looking Harley Quinns.

_DSC3281
I always enjoy seeing some of the more simple looking cosplays like this Kiki’s Delivery Service couple. Remember, it’s not always about who has the craziest outfit!

_DSC3297
Extremely sharp looking Vincent.

_DSC3298
NOTICE ME SENPAI!

_DSC3300
Not entirely sure what was going on here…

_DSC3115
