The miniseries finale! The show-stopping conclusion! Our final batch of C2E2 2013 photos! Not including pics we took at panels, which I’m saving for separate entries! Otherwise it means we might finally move on to other subjects eventually! But not yet! Exclamation is an energy!
For my cousin the Transformers fan: Transformers unite for a logo photo shoot.
One of their own, Arcee, participated in the costume contest. Despite the recurring theme in previous entries, the weekend wasn’t all about Power Rangers.
Probably not a Transformer. Maybe not even a robot. Consider this unrecognized drill-thing filed here anyway as if a tangent exists.
Also from the Department of Sharp Objects: Pyramid Head from the Silent Hill series.
…and his fraternal twin, Ms. Pyramid Head, frightening loiterers in Artists Alley.
Also armed and dangerous: Juliet Starling from Lollipop Chainsaw, which probably isn’t my kind of game.
Also not my kind of game, because I don’t own a smartphone yet: villagers from Le Vamp.
Definitely not my kind of game, because we don’t own an Xbox: HALO trooper. Mark VI armor? Am I close?
Our recurring subject Ms. Marvel returns alongside Kasumi from Dead or Alive, still another game series that’s eluded me entirely. Why can’t anyone ever dress as Ratchet and Clank? Why no Final Fantasy characters this year? How about Nathan Drake, even though he’d be hard to tell apart from Malcolm Reynolds? Little consideration for a finicky old man?
We’ve also seen Batman and Marvin in previous entries, but this is the best shot either my wife or I took of Folken Fanel from The Vision of Escaflowne.
Um…Purple. Purple’s a character. Distant cousin of Journey, maybe?
Undead adventurer hanging out near Le Vamp‘s villagers. Biding her time until she can avenge Le Vamp’s torment at their hands, perhaps.
I dream of seeing an SNL “Celebrity Jeopardy!” skit in which the Final Jeopardy “answer” consists of Alex Trebek pointing to this photo and challenging Burt Reynolds, Sean Connery, and a third clueless guest to find Waldo in this picture.
The following collage is presented in honor of those mighty heroes and villains whose presence we captured ineptly or under compromised circumstances. We wish we’d had better results, but we utterly failed. Obviously we refuse to take any responsibility for this and totally blame our cameras.
We close here with one last random gratuitous group shot from the Friday costume contest, just because. Talent, creativity, memories, joy. C2E2 in simple summation.
The End. Thanks for reading. See you next year!
