Yesterday, we were fortunate enough to be able to attend the 2017 edition of Dutch Winter Con in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Every single year the convention gets bigger and better. One of the main things I love about conventions is the amazing cosplay. I tried out Cosplay myself for a couple of hours (more on that in another article), but seeing other people walk around in their amazing costumes is what I find so fantastic. Especially when a lot of hard work has been put into these costumes. It is the ultimate way to show love for something pop-culture related. Which is why we decided to walk around the convention to take pictures of the cosplay we loved most. Have a look:
1. Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy
We loved this costume because it was just incredibly funny. Sometimes Cosplay is serious, but this duo shows it doesn’t have to be. I haven’t seen them solve crime under the sea yet, but who knows what they have been up to.
2. Belle & Prince Adam
Beauty & The Beast is one of my favourite fairy tales. So when we encountered this gorgeous princess and prince, we had to snap a photo of them.
3. Velma & Daphne
We caught these two walking around in search of mysteries and ghosts. Luckily they did have time for us to take a quick picture before they were on their way again. These two are the Killer Blondies.
4. E.T & Elliot
This was one of my personal favourites. Elliot has grown quite a bit and it looks like E.T. is not yet home, but they were good on their way.
5. Cylon (Battlestar Galactica)
To be honest, I did not know who this was, but luckily Tom and Nora enlightened me. This is a Cylon from Battlestar Galactica, and despite me not really knowing it, he still looks very cool!
6. Loki(s), Wonder Woman & Thor
We caught these superheroes (and villains sometimes) mingling and we had to take the opportunity to snap a photo. Although it seems like Thor and Wonder Woman wanted to take the opportunity to smash one of the Loki’s head in.
Isn’t this absolutely gorgeous? We saw this Zelda walking around and really wanted to take a picture. Look at all the details! Absolutely stunning. This is Lindsey Welters.
8. Princess Peach
Another insanely cute costume was this beautiful princess Peach.
As we left the premises, my greatest nightmare came true when we spotted this Pennywise walking around. Luckily he did not do that insane dance, but if this doesn’t give you the creeps, then I don’t know what will.
