Cosplay – Emerald City Comicon 2016

Comic conventions around the country are as different and varied as the cities they are hosted in. That can easily be said for the cosplay at those conventions as well. The fact is – you never know what you’re gonna see and it’s sometimes the most unlikely of costumes that really makes you go “Whoa!” (you know you pictured Keanu Reeves saying that)

We visited Emerald City Comicon in Seattle over the weekend and were once again blown away by the selection and creativity of the cosplay. From BMO to Wicket, the costumes were on point, and we were there to capture the action.
