It’s that time again! This weekend my wife and I attended the fourth annual Indiana Comic Con at the Indiana Convention Center in scenic downtown Indianapolis. Once again Anne and I found a few intriguing names on the guest list and decided to drop by…
And now, the part everyone’s always waiting for: all the rest of our cosplay pics from our Saturday walkabout. As with every such con, the following represents a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of the total number of attendees, cosplayers, and characters on hand. One of the innumerable beauties of the internet is that no two convention cosplay photo galleries will ever be alike. This one is ours.
But first: a great big cosplay mob! On Saturday morning a bevy of professional photographers and dozens of cosplayers rendezvoused outside Hall J for one colossal photo shoot. Anne and I happened to be walking toward the food-truck exit when we found them at work and took a few minutes to ignore our appetites and marvel at the dynamic spectacle.
Now or in the days ahead you’ll find the expertly crafted results of their respective efforts — whether at Indiana Comic Con or at other fun events — posted online at the following participants’ pages, all of whom we highly recommend over our own meager fan-work:
* Photography by Homme
* Daxorr Studio
* Kaminsky Kandids Photography
* Michael P. Hoover Photography
* The Portrait Dude – Cosplay Photography
* Dillon Taylor Photography
* Spectra_HD Photography
* Gabe Duval Media
Special thanks to Brittany at Bsquared Cosplay for providing us with the complete lowdown, and for coordinating this fabulous congregation on behalf of the cosplay community.
…and on a lower level, here’s our rendition of us peeking over their shoulders:
…yeah, I’m not labeling all of these.

Very nearly escaping our lenses: our second Pimppool of the weekend, hiding in plain sight.
Meanwhile, back on the show floor…
Men in Tights from Mel Brooks’ Robin Hood: Men in Tights starring Cary Elwes as Robin Hood and men in tights as Men in Tights.
Colonel Sanders, hero to American chicken lovers everywhere.
Flintstones. Meet the Flintstones! MEET THEM. MEET THEM NOW.
Chucky from Child’s Play, literally lurking in a dark corner.
Thor and Wolverine, crossing the film universes. Wolverine was one of our early Saturday morning line-buddies this year and last.
Silent Hill‘s Pyramid Head and Nurse, plus…uhhh., a Big Boy muscle mag, or something.
Hawaiian Wookiee, another fellow Star Wars fan probably keeping this weekend’s Star Wars Celebration Orlando in their thoughts. Not that we Midwesterners are bitter.
HAWKGUY! Or, I guess, just “Hawkeye” to you movie-only fans.
Once again I brake hard for Final Fantasy characters: Squall and Rinoa from FFVIII.
Leprechaunpool! A month later, people still be chasin’ his Lucky Harms.
Another happy couple: Goku and Chi-Chi from Dragon Ball Z.
Toothless from How to Train Your Dragon.
Disney presents three princesses and a goddess: Belle, Aurora, Ariel, and Storm.
Deadman welcomes you to the convention life!
I snap the pic thinking, “They look familiar, but I’m blanking on names. My son should know.” So later I email the boy, “Do you recognize the characters in this photo?” He responds, “…a Donkey Kong carrying a baby Peach,” and I’m like, THAT’S NOT WHAT I MEANT.
A rare moment of Image Comics cosplay: Erik Larsen’s Savage Dragon.
Moon Knight, patiently waiting for Marvel to let him make the leap to any other medium beyond comics. Someday his turn will come.
After a ghastly incident involving a depraved felon and a brutally butchered Jigglypuff, Pokemon Trainer Rorschach was born.
Pink Panther. No, not that one.
That’s it for our Indiana Comic Con 2017 costume photo galleries but we’re not done yet. Coming soon in our candid finale: jazz hands and storytime!
