Despite there being tons of different things to look at and spend your money on at the Edmonton Expo, it’s actually the cosplayers that I’m always looking forward to the most (that and the Artist Alley).

_DSC7785
Just like any other blank canvas, the amounts of options when it comes to bringing your favourite fictional characters to life are endless.

_DSC7801
Just like the Artist Alley, I find it fascinating to see peoples different interpretations of the same thing, so let’s take a look at some of their end creations.

_DSC7775
As always my own group has come up with some new outfits as seen here by David as Poe Dameron, Jessica as Cerys, Priscilla as Ciri, and of course Titus in his trusty Toon Link outfit!

I’ve seen many good Master Chief’s in the past but this is the first one I’ve seen wielding the almighty rocket launcher.

_DSC7792
Malicious looking Pyramid Head and nurse duo.

_DSC7794
Remember not all cosplays have to be a crazy elaborate outfit.

_DSC7796
In the end it’s all about having fun!

_DSC7800
I’ve absolutely no idea how that pumpkin is being held onto the sword…

_DSC7803
Jumbo sized Skrat.

_DSC7805
Battled-scarred looking Geralt.

_DSC7807
Don’t remember where these characters are from but amazing work nonetheless.

_DSC7830
Yeah that’s not creepy at all or anything…

_DSC7880
Without a doubt my favourite cosplay of the event was this Mark I Iron Man suit. This is about as real as it gets folks.

_DSC7881
The attention to detail was incredible and really had to be seen in person to be fully appreciated.

_DSC7869
I’m not sure if this is actually a cosplay or just fancy dresses but lovely looking ladies regardless.

_DSC7899
Now THAT’S how Scarecrow should look. None of that silly “just a mask” nonsense, this is what nightmares are made of!

_DSC7906
Massive Pikachu has appeared!

_DSC7910
One thing I noticed in particular at this Expo was just how many children there were dressed up as their favourite characters.

_DSC7959
Glad to see them getting an early start to this incredibly fun hobby!

_DSC7916
Awesome looking Nurse Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy duo.

_DSC7917
Remember what I said about different interpretations? If no one told me I would never have guessed that this was a Nightmare Freddy from Five Nights At Freddy’s.

_DSC7924
Two-Punch Man?

_DSC7925
Super classy Stormtrooper/Vader combo. Easily another one of my favourites from the show.

_DSC7928
First Squirrel Girl I’ve seen!

_DSC7930
Hands down the best dressed family at the Expo.

_DSC7933
Sailor Saturn and Sailor Pluto showing that not everything with ladies is sunshine lollipop rainbows.

_DSC7937
Very mean looking Ike that just screams attitude. Love it.

_DSC7943
Another cosplay I’ve never seen before was Ursula, as seen here taking a break from the days festivities.

_DSC7944
Right next to Ursula was yet again another first for me, Mister Geppetto! Really glad to see that people haven’t forgotten about the classics.

_DSC7946
Spartan Squad.

_DSC7955
Who else is excited to see where Marvel will take the new Spiderman movie series?!

_DSC7963
AWW YEAH!

_DSC8052
Super well done gargoyle outfit. This gentleman spent an incredible amount of time creating almost every part of this costume from scratch himself. Amazing.

_DSC8116
As you can see I eventually moved outside to snap some more photos where people were starting to settle down for the day.

_DSC8095
The tall grass is always the go-to spot for photos as there’s really not a whole lot around for scenery by the Expo Center…

_DSC8038
…but that’s fine by me because I think this backdrop works for pretty much anything!

_DSC8110
Stay tuned for more as we’ll be taking a closer look at my groups new cosplays!
