Naturally we were there with our camera on to take photos of the best, the most creative, the weirdest and the downright frightening. Below you’ll find a gallery of 22 of our favourites from the day; just click on them for the full version.
We can make a game of this as well! Let’s see how many of the characters that people dressed up as that you can recognise. I’m pretty sure I got most of them, though I’m not sure if one of them below is from Bleach, or something else that I haven’t seen. If there are any in here that you don’t recognise, let us know in the comments and we’ll try and figure out who is who 😉
The Just Cos competition is largely for fun and giggles, but there is a somewhat more serious side – there were judges and prizes given out to the best costumes. People were apparently judged on both the quality of their costumes, as well as the little in-character performances they gave on stage. I’m not sure how, exactly, it’s possible to judge these things, but I’m sure it’s completely legitimate.
Just so you all know, the before-and-after Tomb Raider duo were the ones that won. I actually guessed as much. I guess I can be a cosplay judge? Anyway, enjoy the slideshow!
