Purple Bane, Purple Bane! I encountered him on the show floor before he popped up in the Contest. His stage appearance included his own version of the song, with backing track by, apropos of Bane, the Revolution.
Previously on Midlife Crisis Crossover: my wife and I attended Gen Con 2014 and took pictures as usual.
Part One was the Costume Contest Winners; Part Two was more entrants to same, many of whom sported equally fine work and/or delivered entertaining performances in their own right. This time: our last remaining Costume Contest pics, some of which are beyond usability, but I like to be as inclusive as possible, often to a fault. If you were in the Contest and you’re not in any of those three entries, you have our sincerest apologies.
Robbie Sinclair from the forgotten old sitcom Dinosaurs. Unofficial winner of the Oh, Wow, I’d Totally Forgotten About That Show Award.
Shredder, now in theaters. Sort of. In a way. I guess.
Splinter, now in theaters. Technically. After a fashion. So I’m told.
Pokemon #459: Snover. Yes, I looked it up.
Characters from the Steve Jackson/John Kovalic card game series Munchkin. At left is Johnny Zucchiniseed, and I don’t trust my notes on the names of the other three.
Sebastian Cross, Shattered Sword Paladin from Relic Knights.
Introduced as “Jack the Ripper”. Updated 8/17/2014, 11:45 EDT: my son pins him as Raiden from Metal Gear Solid: Revengeance.
King Ashura, Fay, and Yuui from Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle.
Another Queen Elsa from Disney’s Frozen, this one wearing a dress containing over 6,000 individually attached sequins. Now that is dedication.
Someone from Squad 10, from Bleach. I didn’t hear the MC drop any other proper noun for this one, and Googling “winged Bleach fairy guy” doesn’t yield useful results for anyone involved. (Updated 8/17/2014, 11:45 EDT: Another credit for my son, who tells me this is Choji from Naruto, not Bleach.)
Lego Batman! Alas, he refused to serenade us with his hit single from The LEGO Movie.
The rest of the cast of The LEGO Movie! Plus a surprise Harley Quinn.
To be continued!
