And now for Part 2 of my MegaCon 2014 coverage! This post is going to be mostly photos. A part of me wishes we had gotten to go back on Saturday evening like we were planning to, but the days events said otherwise!
Since I was cosplaying as Sky Captain Rainbow Dash, I was constantly on the lookout for other people in My Little Pony costumes. Below you can find me with a “Daring Dash” version of Rainbow Dash (as well as a Deadpool), another Rainbow Dash, and then Rarity and Princess Celestia.
And it continues with another Rainbow Dash and a Twilight Sparkle, then a Fluttershy with Angel, and finally a Vinyl Scratch (I love her dress!).
Rainbow Dash was easily the most commonly cosplayed pony, but I think I had a pretty unique take on her with my design, which pleased me. Next up, some of the cool Disney costumes we saw, including a Steampunk Tinkerbell and a normal Tinkerbell, Anna and Elsa from Frozen (I’m not sure who the purple dress is), and Princess Vanellope from Wreck it Ralph. Princess Vanellope’s dress was amazing, and she made it all herself, even all the decorations on the skirt!
While there wasn’t nearly as much Steampunk costuming at MegaCon as I typically see at DragonCon, I did spot a few cool pieces. I LOVE the family of steampunks, complete with a carriage-turned-airship!! Steampunk Rogue was also very well done. I am not sure if the two in the center were going for anything in particular, but they looked great nonetheless.
There were lots of video game related costumes. Megaman at MegaCon was a pretty big hit while we stood in line. His arm lit up, but my camera didn’t get a good shot of that. Then Jade from Mortal Kombat, and a warrior from Skyrim. And last but not least a very nicely done Zelda.
And more video game costumes including a guy from Halo, Jax from League of Legends, and one of the many Links I saw during the convention.
I don’t know a TON of anime, but there was definitely a lot of cosplay from that genre around, too. Salamander from Fairy Tail, The Power Puff Girls (maybe not anime, but cartoon so close enough), Evil Buu from Dragon Ball Z, and a water bender (unsure if she was going for Katara or not) from The Last Airbender. I was especially excited to see someone as Natsu (Salamander) since Jesse and I have been watching that anime recently.
Below you’ll see some of the really well done female super heroes that I encountered. Black Cat, Cat Woman, a female Captain America, a female Loki, and a Wonder Woman. Even though superheroes are really cool, I will probably never cosplay one unless I lose some weight first. Props to these ladies for making it look good and being bold enough to wear so much leather and spandex!
And as usual, I found several more random costumes that I couldn’t categorize, an a few that are unknown to me. But they were all still awesome, and deserved pictures! I absolutely LOVED Evil Lyn and Skeletor on the far left – they may have been my favorites all day. The lady on the right seems like maybe a stylized take on Caitlyn from League of Legends? But I’m not certain. Let me know if you have any idea who she is. Also noteworthy, she is carrying a tip jar! Not sure what I think about that. I also thought it was a prop and didn’t notice it until I looked at my pictures later… The center photo is of a lady in some pretty fancy digs, but if she is a character, it is unknown to me. I like the guy in red, who I believe is attempting to mash up Star Wars Imperial Guard with a religious cardinal? Again, if you know, please tell me!
I think that about wraps up my trip to MegaCon! I still have lots to talk about this week, including my day trip to EPCOT while I was in Orlando. As a Disney geek, I can’t imagine being that close to WDW and NOT going, so yes, that is where I spent more of Saturday instead of at the convention. But more on that next time!
