A convention is a convention with or without cosplay, but cosplay makes things a lot more fun! While I was walking around Indy PopCon, which was June 8th – 10th, I politely asked cosplayers if I could take their picture (this is proper convention etiquette), and many let me. Here are some of my favorites.
This is the first time I have seen One Punch Man cosplay!
Mary Poppins looking very delightful.
Just a flesh wound! King Arthur and the Black Knight from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
Lucille says hello. Negan from The Walking Dead.
I admire the attention to detail in their Game of Thrones outfits.
Many video games were represented, such as Bloodborne
Princess Zelda from Breath of the Wild
Princess Peach and Bowser getting married. Where’s Mario?
Here’s Mario! And he’s with Waluigi.
Of course, there were many from comics.
The Summers family and a Sentinel
Carnage Gwen Stacey
Hela and Loki
Captain America and a USO girl
Star-Lord – before The Snap
I have to admit the following is the best Star Wars cosplay I’ve seen at any convention.
Who knew a Stormtrooper and Jawa could be friends?
An Imperial TIE pilot
A cold weather assault Stormtrooper
Bounty Hunters in Mandalorian armor
It’s a trap!
That’s not how the Force works, Finn.
I was going to end with Lord Vader, but I couldn’t. Not when I saw him:
It’s Pickle Riiiiick!!!!!!!
Always ask a cosplayer permission before taking their picture. If they said yes to the person next to you, you still don’t have permission to take their picture. After the other person has taken their picture, ask nicely if you can take their picture too. Remember, cosplay is not consent. These tips will make the con fun for you and everyone else.
Thank you to everyone who let me take their picture at Indy PopCon!
