Welcome to the final in the 4 part coverage of Armageddon expo Melbourne 2012. Nothing like a bit of Star Wars to start off your day.
I think I scared these little girls a bit. I am a huge fan of the monster high dolls I have 6 dolls already. My favorite is Ghoulia Yelps as a roller derby gal. When I saw these little cutie pies I ran towards them yelling "Laguna Blue and Cleo De Nile.... let me take your picture". I want a Ghoulia costume now.
Bane may seem all tough on the outside, but on the inside.... he is full of candy.
Cutest father/daughter combo ever. I know it's a bit odd to take a photo of a family you don't know, but I couldn't resist.
"CAZZ.... I NEED IT" cried Liam as we approached a store. I thought to myself "What the hell is that thing?" I saw many people buying them, all very excited with their purchase. Was it an alien? From MIB? Doom? No silly Cazz, it's a headcrab from Half Life. And with that we purchased our new pal and I soon became very fond of our crabby little guy.
Rad Pyro from Team fortress 2. That flame gun looks like it could do some real damage. PS: Gas masks always creep me out.
You asked for it.. you got it Harley Quin (and a beautiful one at that). Now prepare for a rant:
I waited all day for this lovely girl. Harley is always a popular costume cos she is so rad. But what I am not cool with is the new game version of Harley in corset and skank attire. I saw at least 6 girls (no joking) dressed as skank Harley. It infuriated me. They probably didn't even know anything about her until that game, now they have turned my Harley Quin into something she is not. Harley IS a smart, beautiful, cheeky girl who uses her playful nature and good looks to get what see needs. She wears her jump suit as it is traditional to jesters of old time and knows she doesn't have to show any skin to accomplish things. When not in costume she wears cute little tops and skirts. She does NOT wear whore goth attire.
So thank you to this lovely girl above for staying true to the Harley Quin we all know and love. You are rad.
And finally the ultimate couple costume of the whole festival. I saw a Woody from across the room. "Someone's poisoned the waterhole!!!!!" As I asked to take his picture Woody yelled "Honey, this lady wants to take our photo" and from behind the clothes rack popped out Jessie. Jessie is my favorite Pixar character of all time and I nearly cried when I saw these two together. This lady is the cutest Jessie I have ever seen. Look at her rad hat. Thanks guys. Now how can I convince Liam to dress up as Woody?
Well there you have it Nerds. Another year of glorious Armageddon expo is over. Thank you to everyone who let me take their photo. I had a fantastic time covering the event and hope to have a Nerd Burger Jewellery stand at the expo next year. Keep your eyes peeled.
