This is the first thing we saw... and all I thought was... "whoa, what an awesome bike"
This is apparently the Shiva Sisters from FF XIII.
Denise and I didn't even realize there were 2 real people making up the bike. At least not until Denise got close and the bike moved and said "hold on, I'm on break".... I think it kind of freaked Denise out
He was really sitting on them...
This was probably the best costume that I've ever seen. Everything just fit together so well.
When the Halo cosplayers show up... they really show up in force. I intentionally included the up arrow in this particular shot since the game really takes place in a setting similar to this... I thought (with all sorts of arrows pointing in different directions)
I wanted to get a "chase cam" type feeling into this shot
There will always be good Star Wars cosplayers
It's a Mario Party!
Iron (Wo)Man with War Machine
This was pretty awesome WoW costume. Very fancy. Huge too! Too bad I couldn't quite capture the scale but it was roughly 10 ft tall
Everyone loves a panda
Nu Gundam model!
This is what a bar fight would be like in Gundam world?
My first sighting of a Totoro custome (along with Mononoke hime). Is it just me or is Totoro scary?
This might be one of my better shots from the day. I just asked her to extend her arms and the rest sort of just flowed.
Whoa, Ah! My Goddess cosplayers
Not sure where this is from, loved the hat
Always will be Kingdom Hearts cosplayers.
Ivan Vanko from Iron Man 2
I really liked how serious this guy looked as Solid Snake
Awesome Ezio (from Assassin's Creed II) cosplayer. The blades actually extends and retracts!
Tia from Bleach
Awwwwww this was so cute. And what a great idea to be Nel... and Nel :)
Originally the mom (?) wanted the sword... but little Nel insisted....
the sword was a little big for her....
she really didn't want to stand still...
Lot's of super mario cosplayers this year...
More World of Warcraft cosplayers. I assume this is the Blood Elf prince
Denise insisted she wanted a photo with Panda
Any idea where this is from?
There were a few more Halo 3 guys....
The black teddy bear added a nice effect
This guy was pretty awesome. The wings actually expand and retract based on CO2. It expands pretty quickly so we had to make sure we were a good distance away. They were made from metal blades....
The whole gang is here... it was really hot and hard to breath with the helmet on (from what I heard)
Van Hohenheim from FMA
Nel by her self
Hisagi from Bleach, in his bankai form
Misa Amane from Death Note (I think)
L from death note
Ed and Al! Denise and I spent the whole day wondering if there would be an Al running around, and sure enough we found one! He couldn't move very much though :)
Jack in the Box?
One the best Princess Zelda cosplayers.
Note that she was wearing a *real* chain mail... it was like 20 lbs of stuff on her... I would have asked to take more photos but it was end of the day and she was dead tired....
Same Dhalsim from last year? looks like it
The following 2 girls made their own costumes and drove all the way down from bay area (well, their dad drove - who was now sleeping at the hotel) while the mom accompanied them here.
The older sister
There was a whole group of Steam punk guys running around.
Collection of fast food.... Jack, Panda Express, MacDonald with dead (burger) King, Colonel Sanders, Wendy and Carl's
Is this suppose to be Edward? Is this from the manga or some other version?
Look, it's R2D2!
It was fully functional, moving, beeping, blinking R2 unit. NO idea who it belonged to, maybe Obi Wan....
Cute Yuna (according to Denise... I'm innocent)
Sub-zero from Mortal Kombat
Sub-zero vs. Scorpion
Toy Story!!!! Buzz Lightyear and Woody! Very cute
The whole gang.... unfortunately I didn't have my wide angle on :(
This is for all you Twilight fans out there.
Princess Tiana from Princess and the Frog. How cute!
