But 'til then, BAM!
MOAR PEEPS IN SPANDEX!
I have even more photos from Sunday than Saturday, so I'll see how many of my favorites I can cram in here. Since I was free from my "Vadorable" trappings (and thank you for that adjective, Marigold), I was sprinting through the crowd like a gleeful child on Sunday, snapping pics left and right. The crowd levels were perfect, too: fairly packed, but still manageable. There was even enough room in the vendor area to get a little shopping done. [eyebrow waggle]
Per Vinie in the comments, this is Demon Hunter from Diablo 3. All I know is she looked freaking AMAZING.
Fifties-inspired Wonder Woman? And Hawk Girl's costume is beautifully done.
Some great couples' cosplay:
I saw more kids in costume on Sunday, too - although it's possible they were just easier to SEE, what with the lesser crowds.
Hit Girl and King Boo!
(If I'm remembering right, Hit Girl's mom is an Epbot reader!)
The second Avatar group of the weekend - and check out Ang's flier! WOW.
I'm not sure if the flier folds up or not, but it looks like it could. Anyone who was there know?
Another Merida (we spotted at least three or four) and a girl Bowser:
This Elvira was spot-on:
And this Captain Jack was constantly in character, flirting and swaggering and calling all the ladies, "darlin'." Hee.
More next generation cosplayers:
That little Harley! D'AWW. And the Jawa on the right is the son of a reader. We'd been chatting with her for a few minutes when he turned to me with this big beautiful smile and said, "Don't you want to take my picture??" Haha!
And another classic Tinkerbell:
Captain America and a steampunky plague doctor:
And finally, a super cute Katamari couple:
As always, if you want to see the rest head on over to my Flickr album; I can't fit all the geeky goodness in just one post!
Fitting it to the cane was quite a challenge; we had to buy the reducing coupler from a specialty plumbing store across town, and then John had to cut and flange it slightly to fit the angle of the stopper. To hold it in place, he bent the tips of each flap just slightly - allowing the stopper to click into place with an audible "thonk", and then for extra security we doused it with E-6000 adhesive.
And check this out:
(Or I'm just easily amused. Ha!)
The lights flash red when the mic is in use. Wrong color, of course, but still a nice affect.
My original mask tusks were made with thin copper foil folded into cones. They were so flimsy I kept accidentally smashing them, though, 'til they looked like this:
While searching my stash for possible replacement pieces, I found these two filigree fans in a grab bag of goodies from one of you lovely readers:
Here's the front view:
With my mask lights on these are the kinds of details you won't notice at first, but it means a lot to me to give the viewer more to see with every viewing. Besides, I want it looking its best for the museum exhibit!
(If you're new and haven't seen my original Lady Vadore post, you can see lots more detail pics here.)
And that, finally, concludes my MegaCon 2013 coverage! I hope you guys had as much fun as I did!
