    Seriously? The Isabela was incredible, possibly my favorite overall. Those boots! All the DA2 people looked really amazing.

    Haha. The costume was amazing. That comment was more a joke about the physical proportions of the character in game creating unrealistic expectations.

    I was Spider-Man... But cosplay and that costume in particular makes it hard to take photos yourself. So I would appreciate if anyone who got photos of me as Spidey could either post them or email them to me. Thanks!

    Obligatory: The REAL Spider-man worked it out just fine...

    My husband and I were the Atlas and P-body with the portal guns wandering the Expo Hall on Friday and Saturday. I was wondering if anyone got some good pictures of us? Our phone cameras aren't that good, so all we got of ourselves were some slightly blurry shots.

    That was probably me you heard... MistHE haunted my vision throughout the weekend! Had to catch a pic: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=2167616862672&set=a.2167616822671.2119224.1014196383&type=1
    OK, hopefully I did it right this time! You will have to login to FB.

    What's scary about this is that I thought I knew exactly who you were talking about, only to click the picture and realize that there were two male, Misty cosplayers...

    Really fantastic stuff! I only went out in costume on Sunday (I was in panels all day Friday and Saturday anyway) but I still managed to get tons of photos of great costumes and talk with some really nice players. Especially impressed with the Aveline cosplayer; not only does she have the look to a 'T', but she served as a Marine, so she can carry the attitude as well!

    Likewise! Anyone with a pic of The Aquabat in the black rashgard (shirt) please PM them to me!

    I got one picture of you guys. I was the one who changed out of her Chell costume and was really excited to see you . This is resized so if you want the original just send me a message! Great costumes by the way they were really cute.

    Also if anyone has any of me let me know! I tend to take derpy pictures when I am not paying attention. I was the Chell with lights in her Portal Gun but not the girl in the above photo.

    I'm so happy to hear the positive feedback about the Dragon Age costumes :) We certainly had a blast making them. I'll be sure to pass along your kind words to the Aveline. She'll be honored.

    She's certainly got the background, personality and Ginger Power to fill those combat boots. Not to mention her skills with a hot glue gun are second to none. I think the tentative plan for next year is any updated Bethany (for me) and Aveline (for her) looks that might come along and Grey Warden uniforms.

  • Eticket109Eticket109 Registered User regular
    Oh you were Bethany? Awesome. I had to get a picture of you two because the costumes were perfect and honestly those two characters don't seem to get enough love.

    You two looked great! I can email the large version if you'd like, otherwise here's the shot I got.

    The unorthodox and the unlikely - it's what I do, it's what I'm good at.

    Got a lot of awesome pictures of tons of costumes that I can't even begin to count!

    Great job everyone! Loved seeing the progress here on the forums and the final result at the con. Keep it up and hope to see everyone again next year!

    Start thinking of your costumes now! I know I am!

    PS If anyone got pictures of me please pm me, I just realized as I loaded all of mine that I got 0 pictures of me, I was Vanessa VanCleef and Twilight Sparkle

    Also so sorry to the MLP group that I missed you guys!!! (I found out later that the crowd I could not see through to find you guys was the one around you all taking pictures...gotta love the irony)

    I should go.

    (Actually, it was done last night, I am just running around trying to pack everything now.)
    I'm not totally happy with all the fabric paint, but I'll live.
    I plan to wear it from when I arrive Friday morning until whenever I check into the hotel, then again for the cosplay panel. And then most (all?) of Saturday. Sunday I'll be in my 'Rocket General' skirt suit for the PAX Pokemon League.

    Can't wait to see all the costumes!! Will anyone else be in cosplay while waiting in line for the expo hall to open tomorrow?

    I've been going to PAX for four years now, and that's the first time I've ever seen anyone do a DW cosplay. We need more of them! :D

    Yep~! I'm glad that you liked them. We had an absolute blast putting the costumes together and getting to wear them around... particularly once we found the Just Dance 3 stage. I'd love to see the picture you got of us if it turned out. They don't get enough love but I know Aveline especially got an amazingly large amount of "I LOVE AVELINE!" comments from people.

    You two were so great it was hard not to give some love. I must've spent an hour talking to Aveline about going to school for game design, Dragon Age, and whatever else after pausing for a photo-op. I did take one of the two of you together, as well, but unfortunately it got a bad case of blur. I've certainly learned my lesson: next year I set my camera to three-round burst and remember to double-tap!

    So I loved all the Cosplay and work that people put into their outfits. I know I didn't get all the photos I would have like due to medical problems during PAX, but I hope that everyone enjoys the photos I did get. Oh and if you got any photos of our gender-bending Doctor Who Crew or Steampunk Ninja or Moogle or Pikachu, I would love to see them.

    It's an important life lesson that applies not only to the inevitable Zombie Apocalypse but also to photography ;) Actually, I've got quite a few photos with a case of the blurs or just horrible ISO issues. I really need to upgrade for next year.

    Sounds like you managed to catch her about some of her all time favorite topics! I was a little sad about not getting to chat with more people. The ones I did get to talk to were incredible folks though.

    I remember getting that one snapped! We were back on Sunday but I don't remember seeing you then.

    Two better ways to combat blur:
    1. Go somewhere with more light. Photos are blurry when something moves during the time it takes for the camera to take the picture. With more light, that time is shorter, so things have less chance to move. The skybridge, 4th floor south lobby, or outside have plenty of light. The Expo Hall is a black pit of despair.

    2. Brace your camera. If moving to another location is impractical (and moving is often impractical at PAX), try to eliminate camera movement by holding the camera securely. Use two hands and brace your elbows against your ribs. Pressing the button gently also reduces camera movement, although that's almost impossible if you have to tap a touchscreen to take a photo.

    I'd be curious to see pics of my brother - he was the 10th Doctor on Saturday wandering around with me, Agent 47.

    Oh, and to the Enforcer who handed him a "University of Gallifrey" pin after the AqInc awesomeness, just wanted to let you know that he truly appreciated it.

    drspacemonkey2, I have pictures of a lots of doctors on Saturday. Just look through my link in the Spoiler button below. If I have any photos, I can send them to you. And that goes for the rest of you too, if there is a photo of you in my collection I will email a copy to you if you want it.

    Did anyone manage to snap any pics of me? I was one of the many American Mcgee's Alices cosplaying on Saturday. I was walking around most of the day with a Vault Dweller. And I had playing cards hanging off my dress, if that helps. Thank you in advance!!

    I was wondering the same thing, I met her because she was staying with the group that had some folks rooming with me this year, and I couldn't place it. When I asked she told me it wasn't any game/anime reference in particular, it is just a costume she made. Still awesome and the red contacts sold it.
