San Japan 2013: Cosplay Gallery Part 3 of 3


End of the Sinister Six

San Japan, an annual Japanese culture and Anime Convention in the city of San Antonio, Texas, celebrates its sixth year with the alliterative subtitle "Sinister Six". If there's anything we love here at Japanator, it's alliteration. A lot.

Now here are the last of the cosplay pictures I took with my new not-so-terrible point-and-shoot camera at this year's San Japan convention. I had fun at the convention seeing cosplay I haven't seen before at other cons outside of my native Houston. I love the passion and creativity that cosplayers put into something that tangible and can be appreciated by other like-minded enthusiasts like myself.

First of all, DAT ELIZABETH COSPLAY. We have cosplay of Elizabeth, the mysterious alien duck creature thing (or really bad costume in the show's fiction), from the hilarious Gintama. Just like the character in the show, it looks like it was made from a white bed sheet which makes it all the more accurate. Here's another one of Elizabeth and Kagura.

Normally, I would get a bit put off by minor details in cosplay, like hair color, but this Sheik cosplayer from Legend of Zelda did her costume so well that I am willing to stop being a whiny perfectionist for a second. Also, those eyes. They're beautiful.

Another amazingly detailed video game cosplay is a cordyceps fungi infected zombie from the apocalyptic survival cinematic game The Last of Us. It looks so good and creepily realistic, just like how cordyceps fungi being a real thing that turns ants into mindless zombies. It's only a matter of time until cordyceps fungi jumps species and gets us humans. Fortunately for us when that time comes, we have the Black Ranger from the original Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers to protect us from fungus zombies.

On the topic of zombie-related things, we have a short but still terrifying Nemesis cosplayer from the game Resident Evil 3: Nemesis. Check out the previous gallery's Jill and Chris cosplay if you want more Resident Evil.

One thing about I love about these conventions is when people show off what they love. These guys rolled in awesome viking gear costumes and they totally pulled it off.

Here are some great cosplay from Black Butler, Drossel Keinz and Ciel Phantomhive. Also check out the Ciel cosplayer's other cosplay of Madoka Kaname from Madoka Magica. I think I may have creeped her out when I told her I liked her cosplay. Sorry.

Last one goes out to the cool Lara Croft cosplayer with the crazy and funny Spiderman(s), who were featured in a previous gallery. Y'all are rad.

Thanks for looking at my pictures and expect more from the future, I promise I won't be as lazy and move somewhere with functional internet.

Red likes a lot of things from Japan and wants to share more about it with the world. He even likes the bad anime. Sometimes. As long as it doesn't have big boobs. Maybe. more + disclosures
