Cosplay goodness - Comic Fest Aguada Con

Today we are going to give a rest to video games and go for something different, It had been a long time since I last attended a comic convention. So I joined forces with one of my buddies from GamerXpression and went to the Comic Fest Aguada Con which happened in the town of Aguada on my country Puerto Rico, on July 13. First of all I have to congratulate the people who made this event a reality, because they outdid themselves as the event was a big success (to the point that even as we left, there where still people waiting in line to enter). It was all nice with all the mini stores, the comics, the music and surprises, but now, let's see some of the video game themed cosplays that got my attention.

Cosplay Fire Emblem Chrom
Chrom from Fire Emblem Awakening just hanging around one of the mini stores. Just as a side note, this Fire Emblem game was the one that saved the franchise when it was about to be canned.

Cosplay Cyrax
You remember when this Mortal Kombat character first came out? Yep it's Cyrax. It would have been cool to have seen a Sektor too and take a picture of both of them sort of like the versus screen before the beginning of a fight.

Cosplay Ice Climbers
The Ice Climbers were there too. First thing I thought when I saw them was to look around and see if there were other characters like Link, Princess Zelda and make a Super Smash Brothers fight scene picture.

Cosplay Mewtwo
This Mewtwo sure was a big deal. The level of detail on this one makes it one of the best Pokemon cosplays I have seen so far. It also brought up a lot of memories about the times when this pokemon was new.

Cosplay Cammy
It's Cammy from Street Fighter. She made her first appearance on the Street Fighter games on Super Street Fighter II, along with Dee Jay, Fei Long and T. Hawk.

Cosplay Baby Mario and Luigi
Baby Mario and Luigi. I wasn't expecting to see this one, but it was cool. Notice on how baby Luigi is looking at the camera. First thought that came to my head was Luigi's death stare.

Cosplay Zant Mask
The Zant Mask from Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. It was amazing to see how well they did the patterns on the clothing and the detail worked into the shoulder pads and the Zant mask itself.

Cosplay Majoras Mask Skull Kid
For all of you who are fans of the game and are still eagerly awaiting its rumored remake, here's the Skull Kid from Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask.

Cosplay Mega Man
Just as we were leaving, this little guy got our attention with his Mega Man costume. His parents were so kind to let us take picture of him basically out of the blue, so here you go folks, the mini blue bomber.

Wrapping it up

The convention was good and the cosplays were awesome, so this has awakened a new found interest for the world of character representations in cosplay for me. Now I'll be up to date of the next conventions to come and who knows? Maybe I'll end up making my own costume in a near future.

These were just some of the pictures, but the rest of them can be found on The Gamertologist Zone Facebook Fan Page.
