Yes, I’m fully aware that this article is woefully late, but we’ve been BUSY. The weekend prior to this year’s PAX East I had the opportunity to check out one of Florida’s biggest conventions, the Orlando MegaCon. The number of cosplayers at MegaCon has increased exponentially over the years, and I have to say that this year’s show had more costumes than ever before. Even if you’re not a cosplayer yourself, you have to admire all the hard work and craftsmanship that goes into building some of the costumes you’ll see below. Here is quick look at some of the costumes of MegaCon 2013.
I’m full of terrible ideas (awesome Mr.T Mohawk, umbrella+skates+hurricane, and many many more). One Halloween I decided that I wanted to be “Teen Wolf“. Knowing virtually nothing about making a proper-costume, I spent hours gluing pieces of an old chopped up wig all over my face. The end result? I ended up looking like a circus freak with a bizarre skin condition. Holly Conrad and the folks over at CrabCatIndustries.com are pretty damn good at making costumes. How good you ask? They’re so good that their skills caught the attention of Bioware which later approached Crabcat to make all new Mass Effect costumes for Comic Con 2011. Have a look at Crabcat’s Garrus sculpt by Neil Tambini and tell me that it isn’t incredible!
