    Ah cosplay. I had to laugh at the Missingno, that was unexpected and the little link was too cute. I really need to go to a convention soon.

  2. Random passerby here ~ :V Awesome photos (oh god the headcrab) – would like to mention that the image mislabelled as “Amy – Soul Calibur IV” is actually Clover from the game 999.

  3. The shadow lady Says:

    Ahaha just passing by. Good representation of the general awesome at AN, if I dare say 😀

    Lol, I was the missingno “shadow lady” in case you were wondering XD

  4. Hi xD
    Just wanted to let you know the “Yuna – Final Fantasy X” Is actually Nagisa summer outfit from Clannad.
    Thanks ~

    • satoshimatrix Says:

      thank you very much. I appreciate the correction. I was pretty sure that the character wasn’t Yuna, but I wanted to put something down. That cosplay was quite good and the cosplayer herself wasn’t too bad looking either!

  5. Akillarian Says:

    Thanks for sharing the picture. I didn’t take any picture at all the only day I went there. The short blue hair character with the tiny black hat, long tailcoat, black vest, black short is Ciel Phantomhive from Kuroshitsuji.

    Oh my gawd. You actually caught me caramelldansen xD
    Good job sir. Good job.

  7. DaJacksterN Says:

    Woohoo! You got my friends Samus and R.O.B here – I was the Falco that completed the trio (you can kind of see my beak in the corner of Samus’ picture). Nice job!

    • satoshimatrix Says:

      For real?! Aw man! I feel extra bad now knowing now who you are from (your excellent season 0 abridged comes to mind) and also from the fact that I didn’t take a good picture of you. The one I got was blurry and unusable. Do you know if someone did take a picture of you? I’d like to add that in here.

  8. Pretty sure the girl in the pink dress with the bloody bat is Bad Girl from the video game, No More Heroes. She was such a pain to beat >.<

  9. homogenized Says:

    The miko is Reimu from the Touhou series of bullet hell shooters.

  10. Psnyder1012 Says:

    Just stumbled upon the site. Great pics!! Wish i had been there!
    Also, I believe the second pic from top with ?, is Babydoll from Sucker Punch

  11. The one in the red dress with split down the side is Gaap from Umineko no naku koro ni.
