I know my hiatus was a long one, FOUR MONTHS to be exact. I was totally excited to visit Des Moines for a three day weekend to geek out with my favorite costumes. Granted they weren't actual people from my fandoms, but I visited as a witch from Harry Potter, a hunter from Supernatural, and I did a steampunk duo thing with my dad.
You may need help picking out a costume for future comic cons, so I have the top ten fandoms from which you may choose an outfit and have a wonderful weekend!
1. The Walking Dead Fandom
At the moment The Walking Dead has come forward with a new season, only a couple of episodes but we got a spin-off this last summer, a.k.a. Fear the Walking Dead. So The Walking Dead fandom is abuzz with excitement and sadness, as we start a new a chapter with Rick, the gang, and the Alexandrians but just closed the first season of FTWD. There are so many characters from the show that picking is hard! I should go to next year's comic con as Daryl, my favorite character.
2. Game of Thrones - Unsullied
In April of 2011 HBO was rocked by the show Game of Thrones and some people were and still are outraged at the nudity and violence of the show. It is based off of a series of books written by George R. R. Martin. I have only watched a couple episodes of the show, but was told this should be high on my list.
3. Supernatural - SPN Family
Supernatural's third episode is airing tonight on the CW and we all know how the Supernatural fandom is, and it can be a cosplay wonderland! There are so many characters and creatures to be, that it may take you weeks to decided on which you would like, or you could put yourself in the Supernatural world by making your own characters as I am. P.S. You can check out more of these Cosplayers above at http://rebloggy.com/post/photography-cosplay-supernatural-dean-winchester-sam-winchester-castiel-jensen-a/67821464392 .
4. Hunger Games - Tributes
The Hunger Games is about to complete its movie run in November, but plenty of people still love it. The characters are lovable and some are deadly. Choose Haymitch, President Snow, Katniss, Peeta, Gale, Effie, Prim, or Cinna and someone is bound to know who you are.
5. Lord of the Rings - Ringers
Lord of the Rings has been around for a long time and with the Hobbit movies recently, people are more apt to being characters from either movie set or the books. Lord of the Rings is high on my list with my favorite character being Legolas.
6. Doctor Who - Whovians
I recently started the newer episodes of this lovable time travel show. Going through the comic con booths I saw a lot of the Dalek and the Tardis, and I occasionally saw a few versions of the Doctor. So, this cosplay is a must.
7. Harry Potter - Potterheads
Since the ending of the Harry Potter movies and no more books in sight, J.K. Rowling has given fans hope with spin-off movies and little stories on Pottermore. Plenty of fans still carry a torch for these characters and will cosplay them often.
8.Star Wars - Star Wars Fans
Now that Star Wars is getting another set of movies, Star Wars fans have greatly kept cosplaying characters. Above, is my dad as Darth Maul, my little brother as Luke Skywalker, and my stepbrother as a Tusken Raider, all made by my father, posed with a couple of storm troopers that were passing by.
9.Sherlock - Sherlockians
I started this show recently also and quickly fell for it. I would love to cosplay as Sherlock, as I have loved the latest movies and have read books. I didn't see any of Sherlock at Comic con, but that just proves we need more Sherlock.
10.Star Trek - Trekkies or Trekkers
My sister had cosplayed as a different woman than the one above, but my father saw William Shatner as his Star Trek counter part, Captain James Tiberius Kirk. He was a nice man and after briefly talking with my dad about Shatner and how he payed attention to my little brother who loves Star Trek, I decided to share watching the show with my brother and loved the show. I saw a lot of Star Trek cosplay since we had waited with my father to see Shatner and the Star Trek cosplay is long from dead.
Honorable Mentions/Extra Ideas!!!!
11. Once Upon A Time- Oncers
This show gets an honorable mention because it isn't just one of my favorite shows, but it also has a lot of characters to choose from.
12. Buffy the Vampire Slayer - Buffistas or Scoobies
This show gets an honorable mention because it is an awesome vampire show and I loved watching it early in the morning before school.
13. Sleepy Hallow
This show is just an extra, because I honestly have never watched it, but I heard it's good.
14. True Blood
I love this show, but it gets an honorable mention because vampire lovers will find good cosplays from within this show.
I have never seen this show, but I hear it is wonderful, so I give it asd an extra idea.
16. Avatar the Last Airbender
This show was one of my favorites and I feel like cosplaying as Sokka for the next comic con, so it gets an honorable mention.
There re couple of photos on this page that I took at comic con, so I felt that I needed another comic con post after this where I show off my selfies and pictures I took. I also have a couple of things I found at some random booths. So look for my next post and please answer my poll below.
