Indiana Comic Con 2018 Photos, Part 2 of 3: More Cosplay!

Bunny Fett!

Happy Easter from MCC and the Easter Boba!

Previously on Midlife Crisis Crossover:

It’s that time again! This weekend my wife Anne and I attended the fifth annual Indiana Comic Con at the Indiana Convention Center in scenic downtown Indianapolis. It was another opportunity to dive into comic boxes, meet people who make comics, boggle at toy displays, make way for the youngsters who can’t get enough of anime merchandise, and find space to breathe in those cheerfully ever-growing crowds. To be honest, we were surprised how many of the actors on hand were folks we’d met at previous cons, but Anne and I found a few new intriguing names on the guest list and decided to drop by once more.

While we recuperate and wait for our feet to forgive us for their punishment, please enjoy this collection of cosplayers who brightened the day around the show floor. The actors and comics creators will be shared at the end of this special miniseries because everyone loves costumes. In all we took over three dozen pics of varying degrees of tailoring talent and photo quality. We regret we can only represent a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of the total cosplay wonderment that was on display this weekend. We’re just an aging couple doing what we can for happy sharing fun…

…and in Part Two, it’s time for all the remaining cosplay that’s fit to print from the worlds of TV, animation, gaming, Netflix, and more. Enjoy! Again!

Donatello and Usagi Yojimbo!

Princess Fiona!

Princess Fiona, who can handle herself just fine without Shrek, thank you very much.

Princess Peach and Mermaid Man!

Mario’s pal Princess Peach, and the heroic Mermaid Man from Spongebob Squarepants.

Bob's Burgers!

The cast of Bob’s Burgers!

Futurama cast!

Leela, Fry, Bender, and Nibbler from Futurama.


A frightening Bender/Leela mash-up.

Beast and Belle!

Beast and Belle, a tale as old as time.

Maleficent + Queen of Hearts!

Maleficent and the Queen of Hearts, disappointed to be surrounded by so many smiling faces who shall RUE THE DAY.

Sirius Black and Fat Lady!

Sirius Black and the Fat Lady, fellow veterans of Cincinnati Comic Expo and two among the thousands of Harry Potter fans in the house this weekend.

Eleven and Chief Hopper!

Eleven and Chief Hopper, two of the eleventy billion fellow fans of Stranger Things that convened on the scene.


Georgie’s worstest of worst nightmares: two Pennywises.

anime ladies!

We don’t photograph a lot of anime costumes because I’m familiar with maybe 0.003% of them, but this time I gambled on the possibility that my son might recognize them, as he often does. This time, he’s stumped. Little help, anyone?

Star Guardian Ahru!

One my son did help identify this time: Star Guardian Ahru from League of Legends.

Fire Lobo!

Another stumper. To me it looks like Lobo murdered a Dragon Age character and stole his armor, but I’m sure I’m wrong.

David S. Pumpkins!

She’s David Pumpkins! ANY QUESTIONS?


Speaking of monsters: Reptar from Rugrats.

Pyramid Head!

Pyramid Head from Silent Hill.


Raiden from Mortal Kombat with electrically charged accessories.

lawn gnome wizard!

Lawn gnome wizard, possibly an addition to later editions of Dungeons & Dragons.

Guy Fieri!
