|Our "Deck of Cards" Cosplay Photo - Ace, Two, Three, Four, Five (me!),|
Six, Seven, Eight, Nine, Ten, Jack, Romana as the Queen, Master as the King
What I loved about cosplaying was that people recognized how much effort I put into my costume. I'm not a particularly crafty person (though I enjoy cross-stitching from time to time), so this was a big deal for me. Some people go all out and have four or five costumes they wear over the course of a weekend. And, of course, there's this -
|A Dalek cosplay made of cardboard and Styrofoam.|
There's a twelve-year-old kid walking around in that thing.
|Clockwork Droid cosplay - also had a kid inside it. And it moved just like a clockwork droid|
that I actually though it was a robot.
|Not a Femme!Four - but a Fourth Doctor's Scarf Dress. Completely knitted. I have nothing more to say.|
|Cat Nun with a Gun. Very realistic makeup.|
|Snowman cosplay. It was cool to see costumes of characters from a Doctor Who |
episode that only came out two months ago
|Impossible Astronaut with River inside. I wish I got a better picture of this, though.|
|These were on display with the Eighth Doctor's console, but they were costumes in the Masquerade - I'd actually seen the Adipose roaming around during the con.|
|And, really, if you're going to be photographed as Six, what other pose are you going to do?|
|"You mostly went hands-free, didn't you?"|
|I'm smiling like a dope and the Master looks ready to cause trouble.|
The Fifth Doctor's era summed up in one cosplay photo.
|As well as being a fantastic Eight, John was a top-notch panelist on the "Trial of a Time Lord" discussion panel.|
|These two were behind me in line for Sylvester McCoy's autograph. This was not an opportunity to pass up!|
|Anyone who can pull off a Leela costume deserves heaps of praise.|
|The plushie was a nice touch and I told her as much.|
|I loved finding fellow Fives!|
|This was a nice behind-the-scenes snapshot of the Cosplay Hall. It was organized chaos back there, but so worth it.|
|There weren't many Threes. I suspect there will be more next year since Katy Manning has been confirmed.|
|This one made my inner twelve-year-old go nuts! I was a huge Sailor Moon fan back in the day and I'm super-excited that there will be a new reboot this summer. There was a time I would not admit to this, but I've since grown up.|
|I'm always amazed at the amount of detail that goes into these things. But no more surprised at the amount of hooped skirts and corsets that made an appearance. Holy cow. (I liked my sweater, thank you very much).|
I think that was the extent of my cosplay pictures, but it is by no means a complete sampling (that's a strange phrase, but there you go). Keep an eye out for other pictures on Twitter and Facebook and blogs because there were so, so, SO many great cosplays. I don't know if I'll make another one, but it was so much fun to be stopped in the hallway for pictures and to get compliments for my handiwork - and to compliment other people on their creativity as well. If you can manage a cosplay, do it!
