It's always so hard to narrow down my favorite cosplay photos, but here comes a mix I think you guys will love, starting with everyone's most recent Netflix binge:
Stranger Things 3! I spotted several Scoops Ahoy outfits over the weekend, but I think this was the only Eleven. (El's clothes this season were fantastic, right?)
And the show we binged before THAT, featuring the cosplay season's most popular power couple:
These two are awesome, love their props: Crowley with the baby, and Aziraphale has the "Nice and Accurate Prophecies" book!
For years I avoided anime conventions because I felt like I wasn't enough of a fan, but the truth is every geek is going to find awesome stuff at Metro. There are still plenty of Disney, pop culture, & gaming cosplays, and if you're looking for new anime to watch, it's the perfect place to find out what's popular.
Case in point: after photographing SO MANY My Hero Acadamia cosplayers, I finally started watching it... and I really like it! (That's Froppy from MHA.)
I chase any cosplay that catches my eye, of course, so I trust you guys will help me with the names/shows I don't know:
This outfit was amazing, so many colors!
And I'm crushing on this poofy skirt:
Here comes some Disney: recognize this villain?
That's Frollo from Hunchback of Notre Dame. I love the way the light turned out around him, almost like high cathedral windows.
Then later I found a perfect Esmerelda:
John and I are re-playing Borderlands 2 right now to get hyped for Borderlands 3, which is coming out in September. These two went even further, and made cosplays from the new game!
I'm not sure if this killer clown is from a specific IP, but this is such a great costume:
Plus flash is so perfect for horror cosplays. Horror and beauty, ironically, both look amazing in this light.
Speaking of beauty, check out my friend Emma as Raven from Teen Titans:
