Ottawa Comic-Con | May 13-15, 2016

I was finally able to attend an Ottawa Comic-Con… you know, what, 5…6 years later? Better late than never. I also sacrificed a severe amount of sleep to be able to go. I wish I could say it’s because of costume delays, but actually it was because of work. Oh darn those responsibilities. Suffice to say, I had an excellent time helping a couple of friends man their booths *cough* and avoiding the massive crowds where possible.

Little shoutout to Nytro Cosplay  and his friend Spencer (who kept trying to buy things in bottle caps, haha!) in my main photo here…we almost missed each other, but glad they managed to spot me! I also love that we all have different versions of the Pipboy.

I didn’t manage to grab too many photos this year, and primarily because it was so darn busy that I actually wasn’t able able to pull people aside. There were some truly amazing cosplays I saw in person and even in photos that I missed. I was only able to attend Friday and Saturday, but something is better than nothing! Without further adieu, please enjoy!

Neegan and Daryl (The Walking Dead)

My friend Lexa Lefay featured as Cinderella. She didn’t make the costume herself, a friend had made it and exclaimed that she had the excuse to be a princess for a day! Hey, why the heck not!

Simon (Gurren Lagann)

L: Lady Sif (Thor) | M: Kuzco (Emperor’s New Groove) | R: Fleur Delacour (Harry Potter)

L: Fallout Sole Survivor | M: Mad Max | R: Capable & Nux (Mad Max)

Team Fortress 2 … the guy in the baseball outfit jumped in out of nowhere, no idea what series he might be from… haha!

Peekaboo cosplay had created a custom fawn cosplay. I was incredibly intrigued by her lantern… beautifully done! (her cosplays are exquisite!!)

Lana & Archer (Archer). I saw them from afar towards the end of my day, the guys at the booth I was at shouted “LAAAANNNAAA” and apparently that was enough to get their attention (It was pretty funny). I have to say, these two are pretty darn accurate to the show – excellent job!!

We Can Do It - posterized

Lastly, I’ll finish with this – Photographer Stephen Orser did this up for me, which was very kind of him. I love it! 🙂

  1. Hey, thanks for the shout out 🙂
    It was great to finally get a shot of our sole survivors together.
    It was a pleasure to hang out with you for a bit.
    Also… Lana and Archer scary accurate but at the same time bloody tall! 🙂
