Here we go, last batch!
Picking up where we left off, this steampunk Ariel has the biggest dinglehopper I've ever seen:
And I just realized how dirty "dinglehopper" can sound.
More steampunk Disney goodness:
Awesome wings, Tink! (The holographic film caught the light on one side, which is why only one side seems see-through.)
This Hawk Girl had to stay near the walls with her impressive wingspan:
Here's another shot of the oh-so-intimidating Sauron:
I think I mentioned before that taking low shots like this can be dangerous at DCon, since the crowd can shift in a moment and risk trampling you. Still, cool angle, right?
For everyone who's made this joke (including me!), here she is:
I've seen this couple at the last few DCons, and they always have incredible matching armor:
I don't recognize the characters, though. Anyone know?
That's John (as Tiny "Tony") on the lower left with our Claptrap. I loooove the brighter yellow of the center Claptrap, though - Clappy envy! - and the girl who made it knew us from Epbot! Plus, would you believe hers is made of foam?! Even up close, I'd never have guessed.
Too many awesome costumes to count:
I will point out that gender-swapped Moxxie on the right, though, because A++, sir.
And here are all the gender-swapped characters together - with John ignoring the camera to throw me a kissy face:
Oh, and that Psycho up front? With the body paint? LOOOOVE.
Here's another shot of my friends Christie and Robyn as Jack & Mordecai:
And a reference for both characters:
Now moving on from Borderlands to... a full body wrap-around dragon!
Such a cool build!
With all the Frozen cosplay around I was deeeLIGHTED to see this original take on it:
Anna and Kristoff as superheroes! (Even Olaf gets a mask!) Ha!
I'm suddenly imagining "Part Of Your World" sung by a Dalek, and I cannot. Stop. Snort-giggling.
I manage to amuse myself pretty well, you guys.
Here's the infamous John Strangeway - as Immortan Joe - lurking in the darkest recesses of the Marriott ground floor:
And here he is demanding a hug:
... which was... unpleasant. o.0
(Love ya, John.)
(Love ya, John.)
He was quick with the edible chrome spray for anyone brave enough to ask:
Let's just say I witnessed a LOT of people that weekend.
I've featured one before, but here's another incredible gender-swap of Immortan Joe:
For realsies. Doesn't she look EXACTLY like the Childlike Empress?!
(If you're lost, she's from The Neverending Story, which you should go watch right now.)
Prettiness I don't recognize:
[Aha, looks like she's Dawn from various comic titles. Thanks, commenters!]
I think these guys are from the game series Fallout, which John is currently addicted to:
One night this guy got up on the bar balcony that overlooks most of the crowd, and stood quite dramatically in a convenient spotlight:
Here's one of the Egyptian cats from Katy Perry's Dark Horse video:
I love that someone made this.
And now I want to watch the video again. It's like candy-coated insanity, with a catchy beat.
And finally, ladies and gentleman... Dolly Deathstar:
Yep, that's Dragon Con.
Hope you guys enjoyed the madness!
P.S. Yes, John and I *will* be at Dragon Con again this year, and I plan to schedule an Epbot meetup again on Thursday night. That's not 'til September, though, so more details when the time comes!
