C2E2 2015 Photos, Part 2: the Rest of the Costume Contest

The Hunter! Zadalamel! Liara!

The Hunter from Bloodborne is flanked by Liara from WildStar and Zasalamel from Soul Calibur IV.

Previously on Midlife Crisis Crossover: my wife and I went to C2E2 and took photos! Part one was the twelve winners of the Costume Contest. Presented here are the other remarkable contestants whose efforts likewise deserved recognition for their skills, efforts, and imagination.

Diva Plavalaguna!

Diva Plavalaguna from The Fifth Element.

Mr. Freeze!

Mr. Freeze will compete wherever he must if only someone will bring back his beloved Nora.

Thor 2014!

The current comics version of Thor, whose identity should be revealed any day now. My guess: Gwen Stacy.


Izabel the Horror babysitter from Vaughan and Staples’ Saga, ghostly entrails and all.

Ronan the Accuser!

Ronan the Accuser hanging out with Captain America and wishing for revenge on those accursed Guardians.

Iron Man!

Iron Man!

Takuto Tsunashi!

Takuto Tsunashi from the anime Star Driver, sharing the stage with the Valkyrie and the Khorne Marauder from Warhammer 40K. At far right: he is Groot.

Thranduil + Sasha Braus!

Sasha Braus from Attack on Titan and the preening, posturing Thranduil from The Hobbit.


Xibalba. from the recent animated film Book of Life, was gigantic and wouldn’t stop moving.

Nightmare Moon!

Nightmare Moon from My Little Pony.

King Sombra!

King Sombra, also from MLP.


The Tech-priest concludes our salute to Warhammer 40K.

Minako Arisoto!

Minako Arisoto from the PSP game Persona 3 Portable.

Dragon Rider!

The Dragon Rider was the winner of the Eastern Championships of Cosplay at last October’s New York Comic Con 2014. Part of his prize was an invitation to come compete at the Crown Championships of Cosplay at C2E2 2015. That thing I mentioned in Part 1 about the Championships going global? This is a step in that action plan. P.S.: He didn’t win again.


Loki posed for a bit outside the room after the Costume Contest.


We encountered Marvin from The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy near the show floor hours before, then saw her later in the Contest. You’ll note the costume required her to walk on her knees. Imagine spending a day walking that way everywhere. This is true dedication to playing a part.

Boba Fett!

For our Star Wars fans: a variant Boba Fett with ten times the personality of the original.
