Gen Con 2014 Photos, Part 3 of 6: Costume Contest, Last Call

Purple Bane!

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.

Onward:

Robbie Sinclair!

Robbie Sinclair from the forgotten old sitcom Dinosaurs. Unofficial winner of the Oh, Wow, I’d Totally Forgotten About That Show Award.

Shredder

Shredder, now in theaters. Sort of. In a way. I guess.

Splinter!

Splinter, now in theaters. Technically. After a fashion. So I’m told.

Snover!

Pokemon #459: Snover. Yes, I looked it up.

Munchkin

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!

Sebastian Cross, Shattered Sword Paladin from Relic Knights.

Jack the Ripper?

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! Yuui!

King Ashura, Fay, and Yuui from Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle.

Queen Elsa!

Another Queen Elsa from Disney’s Frozen, this one wearing a dress containing over 6,000 individually attached sequins. Now that is dedication.

Squad 10!

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!

Lego Batman! Alas, he refused to serenade us with his hit single from The LEGO Movie.

The Lego Movie!

The rest of the cast of The LEGO Movie! Plus a surprise Harley Quinn.

To be continued!

      • I like it! I know a guy that I always think resembles Sinclair, the Dinosaurs baby! I don’t mean it as an insult, he just looks like ’em! I’ve never been to one of these conventions, I’d like to go sometime.

        • They’re draining and pricey, but they’re a blast. In a bit of inconvenient scheduling, we have another one coming up this weekend. So we’ll have yet another round of photos to sort through. After that we’ll probably have to spend September eating lots of hot dogs and soup.

          • I’d like experience at least one sometime, ditto on a horror convention. I don’t even know if my area has one…the closest conventions I know of are usually in the Philadelphia PA, Cherry Hill NJ, Toronto ON areas, I shall google!
            I hope you have a nice variety of soup flavors=)
