I can't wait to show you guys the rest of my favorite cosplays at MegaCon last weekend (click here if you missed my Thursday pics!), so let's get right to it:
First, a STUNNING Princess Amidala, who went on to win (I think) Best Technical in the costume contest. Easy to see why; look at all that detailing in her robes!
Next, a Kermit-flail-inducing blast from the past:
Kira and Fizzgig from Dark Crystal!
There were LOTS of human Judy Hopps around (ie no masks, just bunny ears), but I think this was the only rabbit version:
She even has the feet! And I don't know how much is padding and how much is her, but I loooove her hips. Is that weird? I'm not trying to be weird, swearsies. It's just the perfect proportions for Judy, you know?
This Martian Madame from Mars Attacks even had the creepy smooth walk down:
An extra large Wookiee and a Shakespearean Stormtrooper:
Just a couple of the Labyrinth coplayers we bumped into with Agnes:
(Agnes, of course, was not impressed.)
John's a big Fallout fan, so he made sure I didn't miss these two:
That's Hancock and Nick Valentine from the game. Here's a reference for those of you (like me) who haven't played:
The Nick Valentine even has yellow contacts!
Another great pair: the Wicked Witch and Kylo Ren:
Kylo even has the side 'saber wound. Nice touch.
Peridot from Steven Universe:
A sweet Cap' and Loki:
Completely crushing on Lady Loki's floral "horns"! And Cap' - aka Chelsy - totally made me cry, because she's an Epbot reader and we got to talkin' and it was all good stuff but of course we all know I'm a happy crier now, don't we?
So much YES. Bwahaha!
Remember how I said this would be the year of Undertale cosplay?
These are only a few of the MANY I saw.
Here's a quick reference I threw together of most of the main characters:
As you can see they're all 8-bit, which is what makes these cosplays so dang impressive.
On the right there is GLaDOS from Portal with Undertale's Mettaton, who is also a narcissistic computer in human form. Talk about a match made in virtual heaven.
One last one, because this is just too cool:
In Undertale you can choose to Fight or show Mercy, and it's now a Thing in fan circles to do either a Pacifist Run (kill nothing) or a Genocide/No Mercy Run (kill everything.) These two ladies are showing a mirror image of the same character - the one you play - for each option, and srsly, HOW COOL IS THAT.
OK, let's leave Undertale behind, and talk about this Prince who crawled across the floor for my photo:
That's commitment, you guys. <3 3="" p="">3>
I also love creative twists on classic characters, so check out this old-timey, Civil War-era Iron Man & Captain America:
Because CIVIL WAR, you guys. Get it? And Cap's shield is a Union crest! So clever.
I heard later these Clockwork Droids from Doctor Who even ticked:
I, uh, didn't get close enough to find out. o.0
Beautiful Moxxi from Borderlands:
I've noticed a resurgence of older and lesser-known characters in cosplay lately, and lemme tell ya: I approve. It's sweet to know movies like The Road To El Dorado and Anastasia are still making the rounds:
Both of these are seriously underrated movies, you guys. Tell me you've seen them. And if you haven't, go see them. Heck, now I want to see them again. (John and I still say, "And then I'd KEEK HER, sir," to each other, because we're random like that, and Bartok the bat is the bee's knees.)
Though I have to admit, I'm not sure I've ever seen Treasure Planet:
I'll add it to the list.
Then there are the classics:
K, enough nostalgia, time for a laugh:
That's Phasma in the trash compactor, and I think General Hux hitting the bottle.
And here's emo Kylo Ren doing some light reading:
So wrong. Ha!
The loveliest Madame Pince (the Hogwarts librarian) and Professor Sprout you'll ever see:
Those robes! Ah! These two are always some of my favorites at local cons & Dapper Day. (Wait'll you see their fairy costumes from Sunday in my next post.)
They were actually part of a group, but I missed the others, so here's Themed Shots' photo of them with Delores Umbridge and Lockhart:
(Follow Themed Shots for more eye candy, btw! Plus they're super sweet peeps.)
That Gilderoy is DaVid McCarthy, an amaaazing local costumer I've followed for ages, but just recently gotten acquainted with. You'll see more of his work in my next post. (Or if you follow him, which I highly recommend.)
K, I'm going to wrap up this installment with proof that our Agnes didn't traumatize ALL the children at MegaCon:
These cuties even thought she was pretty funny. :)
Stay tuned for Part 2!
