    Hey all, my friend and I attended our first con and it was awesome. We are both fairly new at the whole costuming scene, but have been been building fairly religiously...lol for the past year and a half. I guess we kind of like it.

    Anyways, here are some photos that I found of us at Megacon 2012. I would like to see other peoples pics too, so feel free to post here if you went to Megacon and either took pics or have some of yourself keeping it real...lol. Thanks guys, hope you like them.

    I'm the ODST and Hyperbalistik is the Halo Reach MKV.

    I was really impressed with these props (I think this was the 501st stuff) really cool stuff:

    Sorry for the bad quality pictures. I tried my best. Definitely inspired by a lot of the costumes and props I got to see.

    Thanks again!

    I'll get the small amount of pics I took up as soon as I can. They're not in the best quality because I left my T2i at the house on the first day, the second day I was dressed up as MacReady and the third day, there was only a small number of costumes that really stood out to me (most were the typical stuff from recent comic books, video games and movies). But I'll get them up when I can.

    Here are some of my pictures from Saturday. I'm not including the ones that are bad or some of the WTF moments that I saw. I can post the full size photos if anybody wants them.

    [​IMG]

    I wish the eyes were not just painted on.
    [​IMG]

    These aren't the droids you're looking for.
    [​IMG]

    K9, NO!!!
    [​IMG]

    Someone bought all the options.
    [​IMG]

    This one is naked.
    [​IMG]

    This is one of our guys. He told me his name but I really suck with names. It was either Jake or Zach. This picture does not do the suit justice. And I liked the girls calling him Mr Stark.
    [​IMG]

    Once again, Rick shoots first.

    This is another one where the photo does not do the guy justice. The outfit was ok, but he really looked like Chris Hemsworth without the muscles. I have no idea who the other guy is supposed to be.
    [​IMG]

    The local Lego group was there. I didn't even notice some of the stuff until I looked at the pictures when I got home.

    On this one they had a small monitor set up as the screen and they were showing Star Wars.
    [​IMG]

    I hear the cake is a lie.
    [​IMG]

    I have a few other Lego pictures, but I would have to post them full size to see everything.

    And finally some swag (but not free)!
    A Blue Sun and old school Cyberman glasses. I have their card if anyone wants to order from them.
    [​IMG]

    And a print from Christian Slade, the guy who does the Korgi books.

    Thanks for the complements on the 501st display. We worked hard to bring everything in and set it up. From the photos above, the IG-88, Zuckuss, Dengar, Ree Yees, LIN droid, and right two jawas were mine. Oh, and the Tatooine building/doorway.

    I saw Seven of Nine there. The outfit definitely worked for her. I should have asked for a picture. I did see one someone took if you Google "MegaCon".

    You disapoint the one on the left while I try and convince the one on the right that the self loathing is natural.

    Dude, I saw that TARDIS. I didn't know you were there and that was your TARDIS.

    Honestly, I don't think there was much of an organization for the convention this year (I mean, previous years, there was always a "Who's going to Megacon" thread, but this year, I didn't see one come up. I think that's why we all had problems trying to find each other there.

    Doubt it. MegaCon was close, but for Supercon I would have to get a room for the night before and after. Maybe if they get more people I want to see or I suddenly get a girlfriend and she wants to go.

    Or he can just say, "That is the, uh, '99 version. Yeah, that's the ticket!". Actually, something like that might be true.

    They changed/added some of Artoo's extended gadgets in the Blu-Ray of ROTJ.

    Feh, that doesn't even count. If had had that awesome droid I wouldn't give the Blu change a second thought.

    I do believe the character is Scarlet Witch. Could be wrong though.
