Aaaannndddd here’s part three of my Megacon 2011 photo gallery! Yay! Hope you all like the photos.
The best part about going to conventions like Megacon is all the amazing costumes and the people behind them. Megacon has grown to become my favorite con. Every year I meet new people and have so many conversations about the nerdiest stuff on earth. I love it. I wish it was a quarterly thing. I would so go every quarter year. *sigh*
Alrighty, folks, I have posted photos of myself and friends at Megacon, but I am finally done organizing my favorite photos from the con, taken by yours truly. I took A LOT of photos, so I apologize for the amount of time it has taken me to sort through ‘em all.
I will be breaking up these galleries into 3 different posts. So here is one of three. The other two will be coming shortly! Enjoy!
ThunderCats was a little before my time. I don’t have any personal connections to it. But perhaps I can finally get into the franchise with this new anime reboot of the series, produced for Cartoon Network. Visually, it looks appealing. Action looks decent, but I can’t gauge the story, being that no vocal narrative is added to trailer. It’s a good enough teaser to get old fans mouth-watering over the reboot, I suppose.
Full disclosure, I never played any of the .Hack video games. I don’t know a lot about them. I am posting these cosplay photos because I generally thought they looked cool. The cosplayer’s name is Max Shino. The character he is cosplaying as is Haseo, from the .hack//G.U. video game. Photography by Hexlord.
Why does Marvel even bother producing these Saturday morning X-Men cartoon? The anime genre is where it’s at! Just watch this trailer for the upcoming X-Men anime and try to tell me you didn’t shed a single tear of joy.
The first convention I attended was Otakon back in 2004. During that con I was introduced to the world of cosplay. I saw some amazing costumes, and some bad costumes. But the pinnacle of bad costumes always seemed to be the hideous InuYasha costumes. Not that the character InuYasha looks bad himself, but the people who dress up as the character just do such a lazy uninspired job. So through the years InuYasha cosplay started becoming a stereotype / icon of bad cosplay to me.
So imagine my shock, after 7 years of associating InuYasha with terrible cosplay, that I come across an InuYasha cosplay that isn’t just good, it’s inspiring! And that is what we have below in these cosplay photos, taken by photographer Bruce Heinsius. I don’t have any information on the cosplayer besides her first name, which is Joanne. But I have to say, great photography and great work on the costume. I am impressed.
