DragonCon2008 - Costumes: misc. pt.2

EDIT: Unless I misread my admin pages, I somehow forgot to actually post this back in the day, so here it is, out of "Draft," mode, and onto the blog. Where it may already have been, who knows.

OK, so this obviously ended up getting split into two posts.... and I'll start this one with the cutest little cat girl you ever did see.

And just to be sure you don't think its all sunshine and daises over here, this girl has seriously fucked up some very early memories of mine about what makes a woman sexy!

This is one of my favorite pics, from this or any other DragonCon:

I love the idea of an ape visiting from another planet and checking his camera, because the folks back home are never gonna believe this shit.

Crazy CyberPunk Wings
OK, I've never really spoken with them, but I see these guys all the time at cons. And she's always wearing some crazy ass wings. But this set of wings just kicked all kinda of ass. First off, they moved. The wings were articulated to fold up or spread out. Also, those aren't glairs or hot spots on the camera, there were lights at the end of each wing tip. Cool stuff, y'all.

You've got to love this: two moms in matching costumes with two sons in matching psudocostumes:

Even Cobra Commander needs a holiday.

Battlestar Galactica

I think she might look more like the character she's portraying -- I mean in the face more than the costume -- than any one I've seen at a con.

OK, is this a costume or is she just blond?

Always a popular choice (but a lot of these girls ended up in the "Ladies of..." category.)

Pro-grade, not really a costume 'cause they are gettin' paid, Cruxshadows girls:

Much like the Cruxshadows girls, these were pretty much the only other professional booth babes I saw at the con. I don't really know if this counts as in costume or not.

We noticed a lot of kids in costume this year. I suppose the babies who's mothers dressed them up as ewoks a few years ago are starting to grow up.

Does Wizard of Oz count as a Disney movie? Close enough.
Photobucket

5th Element
I love this movie. Seems others agree. Or at least, we all love Milla Jovavitch.

Lilu Dallas, multi pass.

I never could find this Battle Brother again for a better shot... I took this one from accross the street.

Cork hats are Australian for costume.

I love this mask. Simple, cool. Good to go.
Photobucket

Hay, if you are the guy in the back of this shot, I hate you a little bit.

I have sinned. And sinned well.
