Otakon 2010 - day two

A Chozo from Super Metroid on the SNES!

...I appreciate a costume that becomes impossible from certain angles.

There were several Poison Ivy's around, but this was the prettiest I saw. Another one had crazy, clawed vine tentacles, but I only saw her from the back as she was leaving. I'm not one to chase someone down just to bug them for a photo.

Darkstalkers! This is the best Q-bee outfit I've ever seen, in person or online. She looks a lot like the Q-bee I photographed my first trip to Otakon, but with a more refined costume - and that one was already pretty excellent. I'm not sure it's the same person.

The "Search Ghost" is one of the cooler things in Disney/Squaresoft's "Kingdom Hearts." She seemed to like my costume, too, but I did nowhere near the work she must have to put into this guy.

Queen Frostina from Candy Land! Notice how little of these are actually anime characters. That's fine by me.

Now for some Pokemon:

Hi! I cosplayed Felicia in the Darkstalkers skit. Just wanted to let you know it's not the same Q.B. The one in your photos is Krys, who can be found as "Ambrosia" on

Yeah, loved that Chozo!

And thanks, Vaporshi, it's hard to tell with cosplay and it was so many years ago. You all looked awesome, I'm sorry I didn't manage to get the entire group in the photo!

Hey, the Nintendo Power editors want permission for some photos to go with my interview on this, and I'd like to give them this one. They can credit you in the magazine if you provide your name and it is used, as well.
