Previously on Midlife Crisis Crossover:
This weekend my wife and I attended the inaugural Awesome Con Indianapolis, the latest attempt to bring the geek convention life to our fair-sized city. [yadda yadda yadda] The important thing for now is, there were costumes! And photos of same!
Last time: half of our cosplayer photos. This time: the other half of our cosplayer photos. Regrettably, we didn’t attend the Saturday evening costume contest, but we like to think we saw our fair share. Otherwise, the same MCC disclaimers apply as last time.
Mandatory Final Fantasy #1: Vivi and Garnet from FFIX.
Mandatory Final Fantasy #2: Yuna from FFX.
Queen Elsa from Once Upon a Time and the animated prequel Frozen.
I’m not sure if this is the same Gandalf we saw in this year’s Gen Con costume contest. Either way: Gandalf!
And now for someone without a robe: Ash from the Evil Dead trilogy, complete with handy evil Necronomicon.
The Lone Ranger and Tonto, because reviews and box office can’t stand in the way of justice.
Shredder, not letting bad reviews stand in the way of injustice.
I don’t know the Assassins Creed series too well, but I reckon this is one of ’em.
Raiden from Metal Gear Solid: Revengeance, whom I’m pretty sure we saw at Gen Con (though this is a much better pic than our previous failed attempt). Funny thing about attending multiple cons within the same limited geographical area is you start encountering the same cosplayers more than once. We also saw the Hawkwoman from Gen Con on the Awesome Con show floor.
Not sure if this is Lord Canti from FLCL or a casual-Friday Prince Robot IV from Vaughan and Staples’ Saga. Since we later saw a child sporting similar headgear, I’m guessing the former.

Tiny Jawa, big blaster.
Padawan Barriss Offee representing for the Jedi.
Absorbent and yellow and porous is he!
There’s Waldo! Full disclosure: Waldo appeared on behalf of State Farm, helping sell insurance to young adults who might otherwise not bother looking into financial security and whatnot. When my wife threw her name in just to get us a free prize, Waldo’s helper took her info and, instead of asking her age, filed her under “25-29”. She appreciated the compliment, though it might throw a wrench in the underwriting works if we were seriously considering any of their services. (Ha. Uh, no.)
To be concluded!
