Fan Expo 2010 (pt.2)

Even more than the exhibits and stuff for sale, I think the real fun of Fan Expo is seeing all of the fans who turn up in costume. Here's a sampling of what we saw at this year's event:

Here's Sheridan instructor Apollo Okamura with students, Vanessa Stefaniuk and Nicole Gagnon, as well as Vanessa's brother Robert.

Vanessa strikes an action pose.

Iain Lew Kee as She-Ra poses with He-Man.



Just what the HECK is this thing?!!

Some Star Wars characters.




HOLY HOOD ORNAMENT, BATMAN!!!






Hey, that's no Boy Wonder!

Baskin' Robin, perhaps?

Arrrrh, girls, let me have a Pikachu!

It's those wacky anime kids!

Whatever it is you're delivering, I'll be more than happy to sign for it!

Yes, there are lots of cute girls at Fan Expo, all happy to pose for photos!





I hope this girl heals up okay. Maybe I'll hang around while they remove her bandages, just to make sure she's all right.

This girl had everyone's head turning. I found out later that she's Kat Curtis, "The Naked Nerd" from The Naked News show. I'll have to tune in sometime to see what she uncovers.

This poor alien creature is obviously pooped out from breathing in the earth's atmosphere all day. It must be time to gather up the swag and head back to the home planet.

"Sayonara, people of planet earth!"

Great photos. Just wondering how crowded the place was. Couldn't be as insane as San Diego Comic Con.

The Monarch and Dr. Girlfriend costumes are great.

Brubaker - It was pretty crowded midday on Saturday. In fact, they had to stop the flow of those wanting to get in and only let in a few at a time for awhile, so as not to break the fire code. But the hall is likely not nearly so big as what they have in San Diego, so I doubt that it is as crazy as that.

Not 100% sure but the 6th picture down, that horrific grinning moon thing, looks like the moon from Majora's Mask

your "pooped alien" is actually Dream, from Neil Gaiman's Sandman

Thrawn said...

Kat R: I guessed that too, but the tux makes me think it could be a Mac Tonight who's taken Mac the Knife right through benign commercial jingle all the way back to scary and menacing.

That's my friend in the Princess Leia cosplay! She hand-made that from chicken wire, clay and fabric. Plus a lot of help from a hot glue-gun.
Amazing job for her first con, haha, we had so much fun!! :D
