All-Con Top 15 (or so) Favorite Costumes

Every convention I go to is always full of AMAZING costumes.

I mean, I consider myself an adept costumer but, man, some of these people floor me. So here are a few of my favorite costumes that I saw this past weekend.... and these aren't in any order...because I don't think I could choose a #1 favorite.

PS. some of these pictures are mine but some were borrowed from various places on the internet because I didn't have all the pictures I wanted for this blog.


Okay so the scary guy with the sword and the crazy mask... he won first prize at the Cosplay competition. His costume was awesome. (From Monster Hunter, I belive) And mad props for Ryu back there with his light up Hadouken power.



These ladies swept the costume competition and deservedly so. Original creations, that look very Everquest or Warcrafty, but not.

Okay, I love me some Disney Villains. And Cruella is no exception.

I love when costumes are approached in a new and clever way. This also shows that sexy can be done tastefully. And hello, her skirt is the Death Star!!!


So my nephew watches Adventure Time and out of all the Finn and Jake's I saw at the con, this one was one of the best.


Anastasia is such a good movie and here are two lovely Anastasia costumes. The one on the right is my friend Rebecca!!!


Poor, my friend Heather, she kept getting mistake for some character when she was actually just in one of her Ringmaster Costumes. Heather's a fellow circus type like me!!!


As a child of the 80's, I'm a sucker for nostalgia. And Rainbow Bright was awesome!


"Wow" is all I can say about this. A homemade Predator? I can't even fathom how they made this!


I think we're crossing some genres here, but two amazing costumes. I think the one on the left is Scarecrow from one of the Batman universes, and the other is MegaMan


Another lovely, original. I love the peacock feather headdress!!!


First a predator now an alien>!?!? I smell a movie plot!!! But, wow, to walk around in that all day!

And I'm sure there were several amazing costumes that I missed. But these are some of the awesome costumes I remember seeing.

Till next time!
