A few months back, I discovered Gametraders Blacktown when they celebrated their first birthday. I since then had signed up for the central Gametraders homepage, and discovered through that last week that the Parramatta store was celebrating the same milestone this weekend. With the promise of more discounted video games and pop culture merchandise, I could not pass up the opportunity to attend.
Being a resident of Sydney, unfortunately the price of attending geek-mecca event Comic-Con becomes exceedingly expensive, and, frankly, beyond my budget. I can live vicariously through the internet though, so since this weekend’s event, I have been trawling the inter-webs for all the best cosplay galleries so that you don’t have to!!
Easily the most exhaustive gallery, with over 1100 pics to browse. You can kill a few good hours checking this album out.
A small gallery of under 20 images, but there are more than few decent cosplay efforts here.
Another very decently sized gallery, currently sitting at 115 images.
Under 20 images, but mostly professional shots including some celebrities.
135 more pics here, and some real gems! This link takes you to the first page of 6, or you can also view them all in a slide show.
Two galleries from the same site. There is some repetition, but I link both here so you can choose the gallery of your preference!
Another 74 images, with a focus on particularly impressive costumes.
As presented on personal favourite blog Blastr, followed by a gallery by The Superficial. I am inclined to agree with the Blastr columnist… in comparison to all the slave Leias, this costume is relatively tame!!
Most of these are seen elsewhere, but this is another “sexy costume” compilation. This one has both guys and girls, though.
Photos from contestants in the annual masquerade.
A few fresh images here, smaller gallery of 34 pics.
Another big gallery, close to 200 pics. I don’t recognise from this one, though after Comic Vine’s gallery, many of the cosplayers are recognisable.
A blog with numerous SDCC posts, with a gallery for each day.
This is a huge list already, and more galleries are popping up by the hour. Any good ones I have missed please feel free to leave in a comment below.
