Norm over at Tested (Adam Savage's site) always posts the most amazing, ENORMOUS photo galleries whenever he hits up a convention, and his latest set from Wondercon last weekend boasts a whopping 634 photos. It's cosplay heaven!
I started to just pin all my favorites, but quickly realized some of this stuff needed to be shared with all of you.
Because, seriously, you have to see these Slave Leia mashups.
How great is this Ariel??
John tells me he's already seen this steampunk Leia all over; I guess she was popular with the photographers. Easy to see why! - and I'm digging her hair clips.
I admit it: the buns on this Rapunzel made me laugh out loud:
I think it's also her expression. :D
Now throw in a Harley Leia and a Princess Bubblegum, because why not:
And finally, the most epic of them all:
Slave Elsa & Hans (yes, HANS) Solo!
I'm amazed by how pale her skin is - so perfect for the part, and I don't think it's even makeup!
Speaking of Frozen, there were already costumes out from the new Frozen short, Frozen Fever:
Love that embroidery on Anna.
Tell me this Joker isn't totally channeling Benedict Cumberbatch:
And this Belle is the spitting image of Emma Watson!
THAT DRESS. I wish the photo showed all of it!
And this Hawk Girl:
Fantastic Darth Vader armor:
With a matching "Red" Guard:
Now Xena and the Mario princesses... as Playboy Bunnies:
There's something I never thought I'd see.
How badass is this modern Merida?
And while we're at it, have a punk Merida & Snow White:
Love all the stuff on their vests.
Not sure on the character, but this is some of the best cosplay armor I've seen in ages:
Plus I was delighted to see several Spider-Gwens!
At first glance on this last one, I thought, "Wow, epic steampunk Vader!"
Then I looked closer, and realized he has a Millennium Falcon strapped to his chest, R2 on his helmet, a giant toy octopus on his wrist, and he's wearing a Star Wars Hawaiian shirt... with a corset.
And I thought, "Wait, is he mocking us??"
And then, well, I just couldn't stop laughing.
So, parody or not, I SALUTE YOU, SIR.
I have so many more favorites, but I'm going to end there. Definitely click over to Norm's full gallery now, so you can find your own favs. Trust me, there is SO MUCH GOODNESS, I've barely scratched the surface. (And if you're new to Tested, don't miss their video section. Adam's "One Day Builds" are like nerd crack to me.)
Oh! And one final shot from Wondercon, this time from ParksAndCons over on Instagram:
Little girl Thor teaches Captain Hammer a lesson.
Now I can't wait for MegaCon this weekend, so I can take my own photos. (Awww yeeeeah.) See some of you there!
