Oz Comic Con Perth: Cosplay Roundup Day 2


by Hedge

So it’s a bit later than I’d have liked but finally here it is; our second day coverage of the Oz Comic Con Perth cosplay and if you thought there were some great costumes on day one, be prepared because the day two crowd went all out.

One of the best Assassins, and best Links, in the one place!

And then…

A FREAKING CATBUS!

With totoro! Seriously. This just made our day. The effort involved (they made it themselves)…

IMG_0105

And not to be out done, this guy made a mother-effing Zerg!

It was great to see some of the younger guys and girls getting into the cosplay, and putting in a ton of effort.

Gunther!

We met a great Snow Trooper.

IMG_0125

Then we met a great Batgirl!

IMG_0128

Then they met each other and had a fight! True story :D

IMG_0132

Chris Redfield. Outstanding work.

IMG_0137

Not to mention Supergirl here

IMG_0142

Funny story; the guy dressed as Khal Drogo had a broken wrist. So he got Jason Momoa to sign the cast. Amazing.

IMG_0144

It’s Batgirl again! With Red Robin! Outside the Bridal convention haha

IMG_0150

IMG_0151

Kid Joker here was seriously into the idea of having his photo taken. Good thing too because these guys look rad.

IMG_0156

Best. Rorshach. Ever. (He even spoke in the grumbly voice).

IMG_0159

This is a Goa’uld, piloting a stroller, dressed as the USS Enterprise. Let that sink in for a bit.

IMG_0161

IMG_0164

Great Two-face. SUPERB Darth Maul.

The truly enterprising Pikachu on the left had a sign for $1 hugs on the reverse of the sign.

IMG_0211

“Do not run. We are your friends”

IMG_0216

IMG_0218

IMG_0227

We were truly surprised not to see a single Lara Croft on day one. Not only did this attendee make up for it by doing an excellent job (like seriously) but also we made her happy by not thinking she was Katniss Everdeen.

IMG_0230

IMG_0233

IMG_0238

This family dressed as the Scooby Doo cast. Now that is parenting done right. Awesome work.

IMG_0271

IMG_0274

Harley and Joker.

A more classic look Lara Croft, which was also most welcome (I heart Tomb Raider)

IMG_0279

IMG_0295

BROCK FREAKING SAMPSON! First Brock cosplay I have ever seen in person.

Attendee (who told me his name, and I forgot it, because I’m stupid) and his Emily K. Smith drawn commission portrait!

As a special addition we have two day one shots given to us by awesome geek-buddy Capey to make up for mine being so terrible yesterday!

Arrow and Canary

Cats

Black Cat and Catwoman!  (Photo credit: Luke Caporn)

All in all, this was a great weekend for costume spotters. The attendees did an amazing job, and it’s going to be hard to pick favourites but pick we shall. Come back during the week for more articles from the convention, and our top five guys and gals of cosplay.
