Dutch Comic Con; Cosplay

Usually I would start off with an article about what an event was like. I am going to do that tomorrow, as I first wanted to write this. Well, in short, Dutch X-Mas Con was great! It was smaller than the regular DCC in March and there was more space to move (which is not a bad thing) and very interesting guests (Jason Isaacs!) but there was one thing I was loved the most. Cosplay.

This has been the second time I’ve been to any sort of convention and the one thing that always amazes me is the fantastic costumes people come up with. Before I ever went to a convention, I would look up cosplay pictures online and admire these people for all the time and effort they put into these costumes. It is even better to see these costumes in real life and see how so many cosplayers actually are their characters. I can’t count the amount of times I have muttered that I wish I could create these costumes too. Honestly, somebody teach me!

Cosplay Photography

I took photos of cosplayers, especially during the Cosplay contest and I really wanted to share them with you, because I want you to see how great these costumes are. If you happen to be in one of these photos and would like a larger version, please email us at While you’re at it, also share your costume-making secrets with me. Maybe next time I will be brave enough to come in costume to experience what it is like. Photos after the jump!

I wish I had had the chance to take pictures of even more cosplayers, but at times my camera refused to work with me so I hope these will do for now. In three months I will have another shot.

Look at how adorable she is!

Hopefully next time my camera will cooperate a little more so I will be able to shoot more great photos. I think it is a great thing that these cons exist because it is a great place for people to show off their creativity and express their love for a pop culture phenomenon. Tomorrow I will post more about the con itself. For now, I will rest. Goodnight!
