Sakura Con, Part 2

More pics! Now of course, although this was an anime convention, you will see lots of other stuff, including Doctor Who cosplays!

Fourth Doctor Tom Baker brought the TARDIS with him


I swear, I only looked away a couple times..

Momma?  Kanti from FLCL

More Pokemon! Bidoof, which apparently, Megan says "everyone hates"
A bit blurry, but props for her prop

There were several Brave cosplays, this was the best

Loves me some Firefly cosplay!

she looks like a posterchild for Crayola
We coined her "dominatrixslut".. she had a little radio that she played and danced to, and those are little fake bills in her stocking top. 

DaftPunk in the house! Yes, the gold helmet had colored LED lights in it. Very cool.

Alan Walker and an Exorcist from D Grayman

Final Fantasy 7 

genderswapped Nicholas D Wolfwood from Trigun, she looked like a mafia guy

Sebastian and Undertaker from Black Butler

An AMAZING Motorized Patriot from Bioshock, George Washington. 

Little Sister from Bioshock

Wish this had come out clearer, the milky white eyes were freaky. Sub-Zero from Mortal Kombat

Shepard from Mass Effect

And more cosplay from Mass Effect:

Geth from Mass Effect and Dead Pool with a Totoro hat. Because, of course.

TIMMY TURNER! I'LL GET YOU!!! - Jorgen Von Strangle from Fairly Odd Parents

wut. Cosplays from Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo. Um. 

I hope Walter brought enough for everyone

Dude had some seriously low-ridin' pants. They were making me worried.

Pyramid Head from the game Silent Hill

This kid was SO TALL. I think the shoes ruin it a bit, unless they're part of the character?

Assassin's Creed group

Pretty sure this is from Attack On Titan, along with the gals behind him. There were TONS of people cosplaying from that


Don't know what she's from but nice scythe. She said it took her 4 months to make

These guys told me what game this was from, but I honestly can't remember.. Island?? It was a Japanese game I think. They were total hamming it up for the cameras

Daughter dressed as Sakura from Naruto and her boyfriend as a Scout from Team Fortress 2

He and his Team Fortress 2 fellow cosplayers:

And my last cosplay pic is of this adorable little girl and her daddy:

A few other random pics I took, this was artwork I found really intriguing

This was artwork I found amusing:

This sign had a hole in it, with a little sign saying "glory" pointing to it. *snicker* I'M TWELVE

And lastly there were so many figurines on sale, this one was actually really cool:

Thus concludes my photo journey through Sakura Con. If you like anime, and cosplay of anime, then this is definitely a convention you may want to consider going to.  

Special Thanks to Megan, Adam and Walf for helping identify cosplays

Sakura Con, Part 1

Warning: this post contains lots of pics. I'll break it down into multiple posts. Part the First!

This weekend is Sakura Con in Seattle. It's an anime convention (pretend that last "e" has an accent over it, I'm way too lazy to figure out how to do that) and my daughter and her boyfriend really wanted to go, so I took them as an early birthday present for her.

I have never seen so many My Little Pony, Pokemon, or animal tails & ears cosplays in my life. Sadly, a lot of my pics came out a bit blurry, both because the lighting in the place is horrid (huge windows bringing in sunlight, causing all your pics to be backlit) or being unable to use flash. I took pics of ones that interested me, most of them I have no idea what character they are portraying, and a lot of the pics were on-the-go pics where I snagged someone as they were going so again not the best quality. You take what you can get!

You can click on the pictures to embiggen them.

My favorite cosplay of the day, from Studio Ghibli's "Howl's Moving Castle". When they walked, she would make the scarecrow "hop" as it does in the movie to walk, totally cool:

Second favorite cosplay. This guy is cosplaying as Captain Hammer from Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog. Explanation of why: when you go to big Conventions like this, that have cosplay, you have to bring your weapons to a security station to get checked, if they pass the regulations, you get green tape tied onto them to let the other door guards know.


See! He checked his fists with weapon security! HA!

Third favorite cosplay, from Monty Python's Holy Grail. Those coconuts do in fact make perfect horse hoof clopping sounds, it was really funny to follow her up the escalator because she made the noise the whole time! WIN!


Hei from Darker Than Black and Dr. Franken Stein from Soul Eater. The screw in his head could turn.

Variation on a Heartless from Kingdom Hearts
Dude was supertall. Slenderman. Be afraid.

White Mage from Final Fantasy hams it up.

Say Hello to my little friend

Hawkgirl - her wings folded down, truly awesome

Cosplay from the game "Catherine". The whole time I was talking to him I was thinking "Look at his face, look at his face."

Ashitaka from Princess Mononoke

red Scout (my daughter's BF Bailey) and blue Spy from Team Fortress 2

Wheatley man! Portal cosplay

BMO and Finn from Adventure Time

Awesome cosplay of Lumpy Space Princess from Adventure Time

Found the Mayor of SimCity! I couldn't seem to make him do anything, must be cause he's the Mayor.

Awwww poor Creeper.

Pretty cosplay from the game "Journey"

lady Link -   I love gender-bender cosplays.. like..
Sailor Moon!!  I'd watch the shit outta this version:

How about some lady Thor & Loki action?

Another view of lady Loki:

 Dunno what this is from, but awesome!

Bit of a twist on Rainbow Dash. Pony Power!

cosplay from Princess Mononoke, pic doesn't do justice to her amazing makeup

She really did paint her entire self in gold

Warhammer 40k - Badass props

another angle

A dragon! Megan wanted this outfit so she could wear it to school, especially the mask

I think he's compensating for something. Darksiders cosplay

No, they're not furries (well, I don't really know that).. Pokemon! Delphox and Braxien

Zelda is not amused

This elf had glowy stuff!

Not sure what this cosplay is, but the costume was SO ELABORATE!

The poor guy on the left could barely move. Cool cosplay, bro
