Otakon 2013: Day 2

Here are some more favorites for Saturday.

Naked Sims
Somebody get some clothes on those sims before Mrs.Crumplebottom finds out!
Bilbo Baggins - The Hobbit
I didn't get her feet in the picture, but she had the softest looking hair glued on and was walking around barefoot. Her feet were so cute! Also, the paper she's holding went on for about another foot or so in front of her on the ground. It's the actual contract the dwarves had Bilbo sign.

While I was interacting with customers, I heard some very familiar whistling. I whirled around to where it was coming from and said, "Is that C3PO I hear?" (Facepalm. Palm it. Palm the face.)

I opted for a video because he was moving too quickly for a photo. Apparently a moving R2D2 is a fire hazard, but a girl with lighters taped to her head isn't (I forgot what character she was and didn't get a picture). You figure that one out.

Kyary Pomyu Pomyu
Midna - Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
I was so happy to get this picture seeing as my friend had seen her five times and somehow I kept missing her. It is strange and obscene how much of a fangirl I am for a mascot of an insurance agency I'm not even a client of. I would seriously geek if I got to meet the actual actress face to face. I just really like Flo. She seems like she'd be a really fun person to go on a date with. You would never get bored. And I think she's silly.
Sailor Neptune - Sailor Moon
I love the Sailor Moon tattoo she has on her knee.
Eternal Sailor Moon - Sailor Moon Sailor Stars
It took me a while to figure out what this cosplay was. At first I kept thinking she was just a sexy version of Eternal Sailor Moon. Then I realized she's supposed to be in the middle of her transformation when those weird ribbons start to make up her clothing. Very creative.
Female Crow - The Crow
Buildings burn, people die, but the love I have for Eric Draven cosplayers is forever.

I saw this guy walking around Otakon, dressed as Marshall Lee from Adventure Time, strumming his guitar. I fought the urge to shout out 'Freebird!' and out myself as Otakon's biggest asshole and instead asked him if he knew Jason Mraz's I'm Yours. And yes, that is my happy squeal when he started singing.
I'm sorry if it's hard to hear him above the convention chatter. Tymm Holland, also known as Phyre, was one of the artists at Artists Alley and can sing louder than that as proof in his Youtube videos. I think he had a sore throat that day.

He's also on instagram @Phyre1219 where he posts, among other things, photos of the tattoos he's done at his shop.
Ulala - Space Channel 5
Generic Zombie
I just had to take a picture of this guy's make up. It was just impressive. If I recall correctly he used tissue paper and some sort of liquid latex or sealant.
Silent Bob - Clerks
He didn't talk to anyone. I love cosplayers that stay in character.
The Birds of War, Desert Rose, and The Trashman - It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia
I'm slightly sad that they didn't have a Rickety Cricket dressed as a terrorist in their group as well.
And that's the end of the pictures. Please visit my album on Imgur for the rest of them.
