Whilst the Geeked table was enjoying the hours of endless fun at London Film and Comic Con in Earl’s Court 2 over the weekend, we couldn’t help but get excited by the lovely cosplayers visiting our table. We were looking out for people honouring less obvious characters, things we hadn’t seen before, or brilliant adaptations. So brace yourself for the greatest awards of all time, the list everyone who’s anyone wants to be on, the most sought-after recognition of the century: It’s the Geeked’s Cosplays What We Saw And Liked At LFCC Top Ten 2013 ( GCWWSALALTT 2013)!
In at number 10 – Marty McFly. A well known character but this guy had the attention to detail and the pose spot on.
In 9th Place is Catwoman – but finally an early version. So nice to see some colour that represents the look of those 40’s comics. Now all that’s needed is for someone to do Selina’s first appearance as ‘The Cat’ from Batman #1
7th position goes to Juno MacGuff and Paulie Bleeker. Just two muddled people trying to get through life without turning bitter. The unsung heroes.
6th place in this most prestigious list goes to this amazing casual Carol Danvers combo crossplay. A few Captain Marvel’s were spotted, but this pays homage to her Ms. Marvel (1978) costume as well as being the only crossplay Carol in attendance. Check out Matt’s other costumes at http://www.supermatt.net/
A well-deserved 3rd place goes to these Joker/Harley Quinn costumes. Not strictly crossplay but more a reinvention of the characters. You can see a lot of thought has gone into the modification and gender adaptation. We especially like swapping Harley’s hat and collar for a bandanna and tie. If there’s any pair that is going to break the rules, it’s them.
And finally 1st place in the top ten list of LFCC 2013 cosplay according to the Geeked table is Michael Hall (@s6boy) as Mrs Nesbitt. Why do Buzz, when you can add a hat and an apron and do the greatest and most delusional version of Buzz?
I know he’s just thrilled.
