I'm sorting and editing my DC photos in order, so here are my favorites from Thursday and Friday!
(Thursday is the new Friday at Dragon Con, by the way; more and more folks arrive on Wednesday now, so Thursday has plenty of pre-con parties and cosplayers out and about!)
My first cosplay shot of the weekend: my friend Christie as a mermaid!
This female Hellboy (Hellgirl?) and Abe Sapien absolutely blew me away:
It can be a bit dizzying when you're crushed in a sea of people in the Marriott lobby, so if you ever start to feel claustrophobic, just look up:
This guy was carrying around a steampunk Kermit, but I couldn't catch him from the front:
I spotted two fantastic Wonder Woman variations on Friday: the first was this Masquerade style:
And the second was this sensational Western Wonder Woman, who even talked the part with a drawled, "Thank ye kindly, ma'am."
Friday night there was a steampunk party in the Aether lounge, but it was so dark in there pictures without flash were nearly impossible. I geeked out when I spotted this steampunk Hatter, though, since I was drooling over his costume over on DeviantArt just a few weeks ago:
This astronaut looks like he robbed Cape Canaveral. Seriously, the suit and flag were that perfect up close:
This young fellow is actually an Epbot fan; he and his mom flagged me down in the Hyatt lobby:
(Oddly enough, I actually had more young boys than girls track me down over the weekend - all with their parents, of course. Overall there aren't a huge amount of young kids at DC, though, except for the parade on Saturday.)
Had some fun playing with the lighting on this one:
Anyway, major props to this Booker for bringing... a major prop:
[Per the comments: "Looks to be a Femme Kabal from Mortal Kombat." Thanks!]
[Lydia in the comments just pointed this out: That's HALO Kitty! AAAAH, SO AWESOME!]
This is our new friend JJ, another DC volunteer we first met on the media tour Wednesday night:
l with a white column behind her, and now I wish ALL my shots had white backgrounds. (Also shows what a difference better lighting can make!)
This guy was stationed right outside the Vendor building, delighting all us passers-by:
Ok. So... that's Thursday and Friday. 0.0 Hope you guys enjoyed, and stay tuned for more!
