Here’s my gallery of photos from ECCC 2014 with King Loki cosplayed by Fezhead11 and a whole bunch of other cosplayers.
A few of the photos are from Saturday. The majority are from Sunday. If you happen to see yourself and are not credited, please let me know and I’ll get it added!
I have an incredible wife. She’s an amazing mother, photographer, writer and friend. She cosplayed for the first time at Emerald City Comicon over the weekend. She wrote a funny piece about her experience: click here to read the story on her blog.

Here we are, my 14 year old daughter and I as the hilarious “villians” from The Emperor’s New Groove. I mentioned before that after several years of only being behind the costumes this year was my first time of actually cosplaying.
I really had a great time. The response to our characters was almost overwhelming, not that I’m complaining. We were mobbed for pretty much 6 hours straight; I totally underestimated the love for these characters. Everyone was so polite and patient though, the whole crowd did an incredible job.
When we met Yaya Han she was so impressed she took a picture with us for herself! She mentioned that she had never seen Yzma and Kronk lab attire cosplayed before. That is really saying something considering the number of cons she attends and the thousands of costumes I’m sure she sees. Later that day we learned it was one of only a few photos she shared on Instagram from the day.
Mostly though, we met a lot of awesomely talented cosplayers, which I think was the best part of day. If you see yourself here send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your link so I can add it to your photo.
The past few years cosplay has become a big part of our family. We’re heading into our 4th Emerald City Comicon and this year it’s bigger than ever. Even my 70 year old father-in-law has decided to join us in costume! He totally came up with the idea himself and has been excitedly working on his cosplay. We were joking the other day that he could end up being the oldest cosplayer at ECCC!
So, amongst the feverish costume building that I’ve been wrapped up in, my awesome wife took the time to write a really great article that compares the fandoms of the sports and geek worlds. Here’s a link to her article ‘Fandom’ in which I think she did a fantastic job writing. I hope you enjoy it.
She also took the above photo, which I like because it focuses on the fan taking a picture of a cosplayer (who just happens to be our daughter!)
