Animazement 2011

Erin and I go to Animazement every year to see the neat costumes. We try to take as many pictures as we can, but con-goers are pretty shy, so we miss some of the best costumes every year. Good Times. You can see all of the pictures here.

Here are some of our favorites.DSC9677 Animazement 2011

My Niece.  She won’t give me a straight face.

Master Chief from Halo.  That’s Erin’s hand making the lens flare on the right.

Final Fantasy Character that I don’t know. DSC9596 Animazement 2011

These two are having a cosplay wedding.  Which is going to be cool.  They should get one of my photobooths.

I had her boyfriend blow smoke in our faces for this one.  I didn’t make the cool face like she did.  The Elmo hat didn’t help either.

This girl really looked like Chell from Portal.  We love that game!

DSC9572 Animazement 2011

The whole Aperture Science team and Chell.  This was a hard shot to get. The scientists are lit by a different light.  Tricky.  The scientists actually made that gun and Chell’s boots.  I mean really, like in real life.

This is a Pokemon.  I am too old to know anything about this.  I know Thundercats and Voltron.  That’s where it ended for me. Thundercats Ho!

More Pokemon that I don’t understand.  But my man is rocking the orange suit.

Mortal Kombat!  This I know.

The inhabitants of Rapture.  We had a little sister last year.DSC9495 Animazement 2011

Sid from Final Fantasy.   We also have him as Dexter two years running now.

I don’t know who this is, but she is a dead ringer for a lady down the street.  Guns and all.

Nice kick. DSC9482 Animazement 2011Radio Raheem?

This guy was Kratos last year.  Nice Job. DSC9473 Animazement 2011

Little Mac from Punch Out.  Played too much of that game.  This guy tried to punch me, but I saw him jumping.

Vincent.  I don’t know how I know that.

DSC9438 Animazement 2011

LiLu.  We saw her last year as well.  In another costume.  She is also Catwoman below.  The Fifth Element rocks!.  That plastic thing was creeping up her butt the whole Con.  She mentioned it several times, I was not looking.  It looked really uncomfortable.  Chaffing would be my concern.

Siren.  Very nice costume.  I love love love it.   I loved her costume last year too.  She was some Helsing something.

Assassin’s creed.

The fire truck is real.  The banana is not.  DSC92654 Animazement 2011

Is this perpetuating a stereotype about Italian Americans?  Erin and I are watching the Sopranos right now.

DSC92434 Animazement 2011


Fett?  I can’t tell the Mandalorians apart.

DSC92154 Animazement 2011

Love evil costumes.  Love taking pictures of evil costumes.

I probably should play this game.  There were quite a few people dressed like Silent Hill.  It was bright daylight, but it looks spooky when you light it right.

Here’s another link to the full gallery.
