DC Day! I was in something of a euphoric state through much of this day. Also got some halfway-decent photos of the big cosplay runway event! Thanks to everyone for letting me hang around to take photos, crack jokes and just be a generally annoying fanboy.
Kai Le as Jason Todd, Red Hood
The gang’s all here, thanks to Hot Toys.
“I utinni! you.” “I know.”
Jaye Tempest as Elizabeth from Bioshock
Reno in a Bram Stoker’s Dracula-inspired outfit
Sara as street Cass Cain
Matt as “Rico Vrataski”, a gender-flipped version of Rita Vrataski from Edge of Tomorrow
Frasier as Huntress and Jenny as Black Canary
Cry for Justice
This one’s for the Helena/Dinah shippers
It’s no use, he’ll just wake up and re-live the day again!
Mini-Steve and Natasha
Batgirl finds herself stuck in this fiendish trap called the “Skyhook”
That smile is made of pure evil. Which is to say Sheril did a good job as the character because she is very nice in real life.
“Sometimes, a bad headache can feel like a knife through your head.”
Shaun shows off his T-800 makeup
Orbakat Cos as Scarlet Witch
Rachel Rynx as Hawkgirl
I hope he finds it soon.
The game is afoot.
Gun show courtesy of Jes as Wonder Woman and Ka as Power Girl!
Rul as Nathan Drake!
Statue re-enactment attempt #1
Lil Steve and Lil Natasha are welcome even if they aren’t DC.
First the Joker cripples Batgirl, then he takes the chattering teeth to her crotch.
I call this one “a guy can dream” *goes to cry in my corner*
Joel Schumacher wasn’t the only one with Bat-nipples on the brain
A single tear. “MY PARENTS!!”
Rorschach realises my journal isn’t quite as interesting as his own.
Run little Barry!
It’s Kie as Tim!
Theodora as Black Widow
THERE WAS A SHAUN! Come and get it, it’s a running buffet!
Don’t nobody tell Frasier, but I think Sarah was the better Huntress.
Alright, they’re both great.
Zann as the smiley Squire!
Statue re-enactment attempt #2
Don’t shoot the fanboy!
Cards against Bat-family
“You broke the fourth wall INTO THE WRONG UNIVERSE!!”
Rex as Green Lantern – toting an actual green lantern!
Fun fact: the Evil Queen never says “mirror mirror”, it’s always “magic mirror”. This is like “Beam me up, Scotty”.
Double the Loki
Don’t tell my pastor I bowed my knee to an outlaw spirit
Popular Australian cosplayer Evey Dantes as Supergirl. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to see her in her Batgirl get-up.
Zack as Star-Lord is holding my tiny Baby Groot sculpture.
Isobel, Wanping and Charissa
Snowman already built.
Ollie & Helena
With a sketch by Cameron Stewart
That’s Rocky as DoFP Wolverine
The story of Bucky is about how one guy realised “Bucky” wasn’t all that cool a name and spent his next life trying to make up for that.
Scythe Scythe Baby
Don’t cross the streams!
So. Much. Abs. Envy.
Nathan Drake can’t grasp the concept of a superselfie
Tim & Conner 4eva!
The Predator macho hand clasp
Gwen as classic Star Lord
Batgirl has every right to be scared – there’s Raymond as the Joker, combining the New 52 Death of the Family look with the Bronze Age one.
Sakura Llama as Legolas!
Bat-family for life.
“Alas, poor Jason”. Isn’t “infinite jest” more the Joker’s thing though?
When the helmet goes on, the gloves come off.
Accidental whirly shot is probably one of my favourite photos of the day.
Get lost, Joker!
Not so cool when I wear it. No fair.
My Little Tony (yes, I’m way prouder of coming up with that than I should be.)
Cosplay runway time!
The Mass Effect trio
The Iron Giant is puppeteered by Orvis Evans. It is an amazing piece of craftsmanship.
Cameron Stewart nailed the scowly face.
The “trophy case” in the hotel room some of my friends were staying at. I guess the glasses are Commissioner Gordon’s trophy.
