As a lot of you know by now, I do the costuming/cosplay thing and this weekend was MegaCon in Orlando. This pretty much marks the start of the season, as this is the first big convention of the year.  So I thought I'd share a few of my pics with you since I figured you might appreciate a few.

First of all, here's me in my new outfit for 2010 - Wraith

Collossus (this one's for you Leo)

Spaceballs!!  Without a doubt the greatest group of all time.

Ace Attorney represent yo! I love it when someone nails a costume down perfectly and she really did.

And as always there's a bunch of Pokemon running around. This Scyther was pretty good I thought.  Not the kind of Pokemon that you usually see and he was done quite well.

And since we're on the subject of Pokemon... The Pikachu VW Bug!

And here we have an example of a good group getting ruined by one person.  The girl in the middle of this GI Joe group was supposed to be Covergirl, but I've never seen her looking anything like this interpretation. Fortunately Barronness and Scarlett were both hot.

Each year someone does a kickass Night Elf, and this year she was it.

And last but not least, the woman who I always drool over, Lita. Her costume was really weird... Steampunk Barroness. Not sure I entirely got it, but she looked good so I have no complaints.

Your posts on this subject are always welcome and much expected by me.

You look badass on that pic, BTW. And I'm not even into cosplay.

You look scary.

Colossus needs to put on some muscle. :lol; Hey there is a Squall on the back right of him. Dude on the left is totally checking Colossus out.

Spaceballs for the win.

So Orlando huh, Skylock is probably somewhere there...

I wondered where you were.  This was not what I expected at all.

You know it's funny what you don't notice in your own pictures till someone points it out.  And I don't think Skylock was there. I got the impression a while back he rarely leaves his home.

Why thank you sir.

Well if you expected me to say, "I was outside all day working on my car" then I'm afraid you'd be dead wrong... any weekend.

Oh and if anyone is curious and/or bored here are the rest of the pictures I took. I was only there a couple hours since that make-up and costume was a killer so there's only a couple dozen.

Yeah she's hot, but sadly possibly the most asexual creature I've ever met. Never once have I heard her mention the slightest interest in any man or woman for that matter. Oh well, eye candy is best served silently anyway.

Where was your hat though?

How do the spaceballs team decide on who gets to be Darth Helmet? Surely its an impossible argument?

Everybody wants to be him.

Well, two months are a few weeks. Nyaa

But yeah, he's sorely missed over there. Next time I see him log onto Live, I'll ask him how things are going.
