This past weekend, I attended Anime Matsuri for two days, Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday, I took 157 photos of cosplayers and on Sunday I took 159 photos for a total of 316 for the weekend.
What follows are some of my favorites based on cosplay and posing.
This first cosplayer is one of my favorites. I think her name is Paris and she looks great in her balloon outfit.
She posted a very cute video on her IG. You should check it out. @ParisCosplays.
I love cosplay that involves hats and this cosplayer looked great.
I have to apologize now for not knowing any Anime characters, but I know good cosplay when I see it.
And this guy looked great also. The outfit, the makeup, the facial expression and the pose all worked perfectly.
This cosplayer really did a great job on her makeup. I love the blood.
Here’s another cosplayer that I began following on IG. @JordansCosplay.
Another thing I like about cosplay is the colored hair.
And ears. Maybe I’m a Furry, lol.
These girls were my fifth pic of the weekend. They thanked me on IG and I appreciated that. It was nice to hear.
This is one big dude in a dress. Love it.
This might be the most effort in a pose all weekend.
I like how she squinted her eyes for the photo.
This cosplayers hair looked great. The different shades were awesome.
I also like good group shots.
I overheard this guy telling another cosplayer that his outfit was a realistic version of a historical look.
This girl put the effort into her hair and it showed.
This guy surprised me with a great pose. He was mild-mannered and when I asked for his photo, he jumped into character. Nice.
I think pink hair is my favorite.
I’m a sucker for fantastic dresses, or should I say Formal Gowns?
Another great combination of cosplay and posing.
The guy on the left of the photo needs to workout more, lol.
There were several motorcycles and cars that had great artwork on them. It was great to see them all.
“Always dirty” and that art says it all.
That looks like a really fast car. Great paint scheme.
This was one of the more colorful cars at the con.
And now for Sunday’s pics. This girl was really tall with her boots on. She said she’s 5’7″ without them. The guy with her was really nice about taking a pic of her and I. You’ll see that later in the post.
I took this cosplayers photo and then he mentioned taking it in front of the military vehicles. We did and it was a better photo.
I love seeing cosplayers happy while doing their poses. It’s a fun time and smiles are contagious.
These girls were fun to shoot.
This guy came strolling by with his head-piece kicked back on his head and his swords under one arm. Then he put on his head and struck a great pose. Love it.
What is a comicon without Michael Myers? This guy stayed in character the entire time.
I would have liked a photo of these two without her mask. They looked great.
I love it when cosplayers put in the effort on their face makeup. It shows in the end.
A very cute pose.
This is a great pose and cosplay. I love the blood. Did I mention that?
I got a pic with this cosplayer also. You’ll see that photo soon.
A very good Bane. He’s got the body for it.
I really enjoy taking cosplayers photos when they’re as nice as these two. And a great pic.
This cosplayer found my IG account and tagged me in a post, thanking me for taking a great pic of her and her boyfriend. That was nice of her. Made my day. IG @sakura.darling
Probably one of the more sexy cosplays that I saw during the weekend.
Blue hair is always nice too.
And when it comes in pairs, it’s even better.
Another great gown.
This girl’s pic was so good that I made it the Feature Image for my photo gallery for Sunday.
Ears – check, Freckles – check, Tongue out – check, Cool pose – check.
Something tells me that she’d love it. Great look and I love the sign.
Another great pose and cosplay. The beard makes it.
Black and red go well together and the bow on top completes the look.
This girl was happy to hear that she could go download her photo for free from my site. I like hearing that.
Here’s another cosplayer that put in the effort on her face. It looks great.
And now for the photos that I’m in with cosplayers. I should have paid her $5 to step on me. Would have been a good Photo-Op, lol.
Tails are always fun.
I wish I knew her character because the pose is cute.
Here’s the pic I referred to earlier. The guy with her was a really nice guy.
She might not be 5′, but she’s as cute as a button.
I’m always happy when cosplayers agree to get a photo with me. It’s a highpoint of my day.
Had to get a shot with Bane.
I appreciate all of the time and effort these cosplayers put into their look. It makes for a fun day for all.
A lot of cosplayers make the Peace sign. I like that.
I got photos of and with these two cosplayers. Fun day.
Almost through. This cosplayer also had a great outfit.
I saved my favorite pic with a cosplayer for last. IG @Krueger_Cosplays.
I’ll be attending Delta H Con and COMiPALOOZA next weekend so look for some more Blog Posts and photos next week.
