The Little Big Planet Sackboy costume is one of the best from FanimeCon this year. It works on all levels. It is unique, hard to do, not something everyone is doing, and it is familiar, but without being obvious. This makes my list of the top 10 costumes from this show.

I realize that this photo creeps me out because these two are holding hands with a kind of tenderness. this is not a tender costume combo.
Anime is so deep with characters, I am not sure I could keep up even if I tried. I will have to rely on the internet to tell me who these characters are.
When I look at her costume, it reminds me of the Sgt. Pepper movie with the Bee Gees.
Update: Regina Berry from Phoenix Wright: Justice for All
I love this costume. It is because she is not trying to look like Yoshi, but it is trying to remind us of Yoshi. Is there a name for this style of costume. While I love cosplay, I do not know much about every part of the world. I need to become friends with some cosplayers.

I know the whole Military Costume thing in anime has to do with Japan in World War II. There is a long cultural shadow there. I still think it is interesting. For some reason some of the costumes remind me of Michael Jackson.
I will admit that I love the idea of bride zombies. It is a clear sign that the world turned to crap on the worst day you could pick. There is something cool about that.
I also think there is something a little screwed up about this. I wonder if someone on the game design team either has a problem with his wife, or was a bridesmaid to the worst woman ever. This says something.
All that's missing is Billy Idol.

I love the Dark Phoenix costume, but it shows you how funny costumes were designed in the 70s. It shows how people do not think about what it will like in the real world.

Alright, this is not quite a costume, not in a cosplay sense. This is her work outfit. She is one of the characters on Zomboo's House of Horror. I think she fits this blog anyway.

I love the Falcon. I always think he is an underused character. He is great character in the Captain America comic. I just think he could be in a series of his own.
I know this guy is missing the bird, but it is still a cool costume.

I wonder who was assimilated into the Borg collective first. I am stuck on the idea of being turning into a member of the Borg by my wife. I think this is a great matching costume combo.

It is easy to see why people love Snake Eyes. He is quite, a ninja, and the baddest dude around. He can go toe-to-toe with anyone and he never boasts. I think he is an easy G.I.Joe to like. Tripwire was my favorite because his action figure came with mines and a mine detector. I also like that he would always drop the dishes in the comic book.

I am not a huge fan of the Juggernaut as a supervillain. He is way too powerful. I like him much more as a pacifist who has done too much damage in this world already. This is still a cool costume.
