MetroCon 2010 Days 2 and 3

So yeah, I was too tired yesterday to post the pictures I took, so here's yesterday's and today's pictures.

Sailor Scouts and Tuxedo dude from Sailor Moon, cause I'm sure you needed me to tell you that.

Indiana Jones and a Splicer from Bioshock. And a blurred Cooking Mama in the background.

A Jedi and his working R2D2. R2D2 kept screaming, it was funny. They were pretty popular at one point, everyone kept taking pictures that he couldn't even move from where he was.

A Magikoopa from various Mario games. Or Kamek. Whichever you'd like to call it. Its kind of a unique cosplay, I've never seen it done before.

Random Steampunk guy with someone random's girlfriend. She has similar style clothes so I didn't care that she was in it.

A cactaur from the Final Fantasy series. His arms were actually just tubes, but his legs were real, and he kept losing balance and nearly falling over.

The Black Knight from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

No idea who this guy is supposed to be, but I'm guessing something from Warhammer.

Jill Valentine from Resident Evil. This is probably the 3rd of 4th time I've taken a picture of this cosplayer. She's at every convention I go to.

Terra from Final Fantasy 6. Dunno who the other girl is, if anybody.

I think this is the hero from ICO, but I haven't actually played the game yet, so I'm not sure. The girl is Haruhi when she's part of the rock band in that one episode.

Kyon, Haruhi and Mikuru from Melancholy of Haruhi. They were doing the ED dance, thats why their hands are blurred.

BILLY MAYS! After I took the picture he said that would cost $19.95.

His wings were pretty cool. Dunno who he is.

I'm guessing he's a vampire of some sort.

I love taking pictures of people taking pictures. Its Sailor Jupiter from Sailor Moon. I don't remember who she was taking a picture of, other than it was someone I had already taken a picture of.

Sailor Pluto, also from Sailor Moon. She actually has in my opinion one of the best shades of green hair I've seen.

No idea who these people are, or why I took a picture of them.

These are characters from Trinity Blood. I can't recall names of the first two, but the one on the right is Abel Nightroad.

Mr. Bubbles! This is a Big Daddy from Bioshock, with a Little Sister on the left, and a Splicer on the right.

They were posing for a picture near where I was loitering, so I took a picture as well. No idea who they are.

I think this is the guy from .hack. I've only seen images of the face of the character I think it is, and didn't realize the actual costume was so crazy.

I think its a thief from Spyro. Thats what it looks like to me anyway. And a random kid with it.

Priestess? High Priestess? Bishop? I dunno anymore. One of those classes from Ragnarok Online. And random Mexican staring at the camera as I took the picture.

This is kind of a bad picture. I guess they are pirates or something.

Belldandy from Ah My Goddess. The other girl behind her might also be from Ah My Goddess, but as I haven't actually seen the anime, I'm not sure.

Lord Conti from FLCL. He was also with a badly done Amarao, but honestly, other than from the fake eyebrows you couldn't tell it was supposed to be him.

Another Splicer and Little Sister from Bioshock. The Little Sister's Adam syringe was pretty cool.

No idea who these people are. You can't tell too well from the shot, but the blue girl's boobs were fake. Like they were from a mannequin or something.

Can't recall her name, but shes from Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.

Dual Power Puff Girls, and a Mojo Jojo. I never really watched the Power Puff Girls, so I dunno who the person in yellow is.

I think these are characters from Monster Hunter. The one girl in blue's costume was so complicated she could barely move her arms.

Appaently this character is called Genesis, because everyone nearby was screaming that name. I dunno where s/he is from. This shot doesn't show it, but the wing is really nicely done, and there was a detailed inscription along the blade of the sword.

Odin Sphere characters. The crystals are pretty cool.

I took a rear shot to try and show off the feather dress of the girl, but the shot didn't really turn out too well.

Dokuro-chan, from the anime with the same name I think. Its actually a really good cosplay.

And finally, a shot from upstairs overlooking the convention. This was taken today, so its not too busy. I should have taken one yesterday.

MetroCon 2010 - Day 1

Didn't stay too long at MetroCon today. Got there about 1pm and left at about 4. As a result there aren't too many pictures. 8 pictures in fact...

Dunno who these are supposed to be, but they looked pretty cool.

Howl and the girl (whatever her name was) from Howl's Moving Castle. This was the first Howl cosplay I think I've ever seen. Not five minutes later I saw another Howl, but it wasn't nearly as good.

Tidus, Auron, and Lulu(?) from Final Fantasy 10. Probably the best cosplay I've seen of each of them. There was another Tidus that I saw that had better hair, but his costume was not too good.

Gau from Final Fantasy 6 and some girl who was with him/her. I only saw the girl's backside when I asked for the picture and thought that she was cosplaying as someone.

Kid Link! Literally.

Random Pirate? My sister thought the hat was cool and made me take a picture.

Slayers characters. I don't know their names cause I still haven't watched the anime yet. Its on my to-do list.

So yeah, thats it. We're gonna stay longer tomorrow, so hopefully there will be more pictures.
