Oh my, What's this? Yours truly dressed as Enid from Ghost World with Flynn Rider and Ariel? Life doesn't get any better than a Saturday spent at Comiccon.
We arrived at 9am to find the line of all lines. Comic book festivals have many lines, I have been to many a festival and stood in many a line. But this line was the biggest I have ever stood in. It took the hubbie and I over 1.5hrs to get in. While we waited in the freezing Melbourne cold I took the time to have a look around at all the cosplay.
The first and the best cosplay of the day was this totally original idea of The Sim's characters of Tin Tin and "no no" cleaner from Family guy. I laughed so hard when I saw them. I want one of those sims headbands so very much. Such an original idea and they booth look so much like their characters, it's crazy.
I have just recently been getting into the vinyl POP toys. So far I have Ursala, Cruella De Ville and Rick from Walking Dead.
This was the best timing ever. I was walking along and turned around to look at something when I saw this adorable fellow behind me. As I took the photo I realized we were right in front of some Star Trek toys. So funny. I love the new take on the classic Star Trek costume.
Pretty sure I need both these 1960s Batman dolls. Why don't they ever make dolls of Eartha Kitt?
Next I was off to visit one of my favorite artists Nicola Scott. I stood and watched her draw an amazing commission sketch for a while then finally got the guts up to ask her to sign my Blackest night Wonder Woman issue #2. It has Mera and Wonder Woman fighting on the front. So rad.
Nicola was even nice enough to pose for a photo. Gosh I look dorky in this one, but I don't care. It was my second time meeting her and I was still as nervous as the first time. I always look dorky when meeting people I admire. I always geek out and embarrass myself.
A radical Shazam and Mary Marvel. Such classic costumes. I love that they are hand made as well.
As I took this photo of a very beautiful female Riddler I realized it was my friend Suzie. That costume is absolutely amazing. I love the question marks on the skirt and jacket.
I was sure this guy was a mannequin. I stood and stared for ages them Bam!! He moved and scared the hell out of me. Fantastic makeup and I still can't believe how long he stood still for.
These two girls looked adorable as Lollypop Chainsaw and Sucker punch. I wish I was this fit so I could wear an Ariel costume.
By this time it was getting super crowded so we headed upstairs.
I was very frustrated that you were not even allowed to take a photo of any of the film/tv stars from far away without paying a fee. They had people watching you to make sure you weren't. It was stupid. I managed to take this sneaky photo of Ron Perlman of Hellboy fame. He is ever so pretty.
I managed to take the worst photo of these beautiful Disney princesses. Sorry girls. They looked so perfect and it was great to see Esmeralda from Hunchback of Nortre Dame with them. People always seem to leave her out in cosplay. Great work girls.
Great to see someone dressed as Karl Ruprecht Kroenen from Hellboy as well. Such a fantastic costume. That mask is even creepier in real life.
I nearly died when I saw this rad dude dressed as Jareth from The Labyrinth. That hair is perfect and I love his facial expression. So pretty.
This was the most adorable Ice King I've ever seen. He had a camping backpack full of pots, pans and a Kermit the frog.
That was a crazy and exhausting day. Stay tuned later this week for my video coverage from Melbourne Comiccon 2013 including my Comiccon Haul and giveaway. And also this week I can't wait to share my Enid cosplay photos with you. Stay tuned for a crazy Comiccon week on Nerd Burger.
