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|
|Ashitaka from Princess Mononoke|

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