xD; When Al walked in the door, I was just behind the couch in the lobby. I wasn't even looking, until I saw Al walking up and got out " Oh my ****..." before everyone started screaming their lungs off. XD That was amazing.

Sefinitely armored Al. I was also at the naruto photoshoot, when people freaked out I couldn't see what it was at first as people rushed the balcony edge so my gourd was rammed against the egde so I couldn't turn around to see what the fuss was about. When finally got breathing room so I could move, I could definitely see what the fuss was about and took several pictures of the Al.

Armored Al was great, but I'd have to say my favorites were between these two girls from artist alley...


no clue what anime they're from, but the yellow eyed one looked familiar.

Al was so perfect~
but I dont know if I can pick a fav. XD
Raptor Jesus led me away on my Itachi's leash. He was really yanking on it too. x3 Then asked for a picture. That was pretty much tons of win.
but I dontknow if we are just judging costume or personality too. Cause then I might be biased. :/

I really liked the Gankutsuou cosplay group from Friday. Their costumes were amazing.

Also, does anyone know who won the various Hall Cosplay costume contests?

Armor Al, or the other guy from FMA that had the butcher knmifes and the weird skull that showed up for the Masquerade. I think it was #32 or something.

They should have fought.
I was the axel with the sprayed red hair and the one wheel blade with the points made from plastic fence posts.

Armored Al kicked major butt. THAT'S the winner hands down, as Shino said, the whole Naruto Photoshoot nearly busted that balcony trying to get a look at it, screaming and whistling and freaking out! XD You'd think that Kishimoto himself walked in! *laughs*

I was seriously nearly trampled cause of it o_o;

Banette Gijinka from Pokemon

- Armored Al...and props, to the Ed that was with him. I've never seen automail that well done.
- Tsubasa group. I saw Kurogane & couldn't stop squealing "KURO-PI!!" And then the Syaoran was just an AWESOME costume.
- Keitaro

I'd say it ties between all of the KH crews and Armored Al for me...they were incredible!

I also liked the Freya, Terra, and Auron cosplays...they were fantastic too!

She's from Fate/Stay Night.

... But I cannot think of who she is specifically.

*checked the Anime/Game* Rider. <3

Awesome character. Very well done, too.
