As a father, DIYer and cosplay creator for my own girls, much respect for this project!
Just like last year I didn’t make to San Diego Comic-Con. I did however find a lot of cosplay photos online, so I decided to post a gallery roundup again. Hopefully someday I’ll be posting photos I’ve taken myself.
Also, don’t miss this well written article about Cosplay that was posted at the LA Times: Comic-Con cosplay: Costumed role-players become temporary superstars I’m going to direct my friends and family to this the next time I get the quizzical “Huh!?” when I try to explain cosplay to them.
A big thank you to each and every photographer. All of us stuck at home really appreciate it.
Check back often as I’ll add to the listed as more SDCC 2013 cosplay photos and videos continue to show up on the interwebs.
Here’s all of the galleries in no particular order:
Bill Doran aka @chinbeard is a very talented craftsman whom I follow on twitter and met in person at ECCC (so I can verify he is real). Bill pretty much has my dream job; he builds realistic looking props for a living.
He recently began a Kickstarter campaign to get an original Space Gun prop in the hands of all those who would like one. The gun comes as a kit that you can assemble and finish yourself (among other pledge/reward offers). It’s a great looking original design by Bill that I’m sure could be modded in many ways.
As of this post the funding is almost at 50% and I think he’s got a great shot of reaching his goal with several week to go. I’ve already pledged at the kit level and am excited to take this on as my first foray into kit modding!
“The Awesome QWOP Cosplayer from Anime North 2012 makes another appearance at Anime North 2013! Now with a hilarious surprise!”
If you’ve never heard of QWOP you can give it a try here. Once you do you will appreciate the painstaking detail of this QWOP cosplayer.
