Today was the final day of the reckoning.
Having visited the convention on both the days (check out Day 1 and Day 2), I was not as enthusiastic to attend the event today. I somehow dragged myself to drive all the way to White Orchard Convention Center; it was worth it in the end.
I felt that the crowd today was surprisingly not as severe as yesterday. But it was still large enough.
Today’s cosplayers were also better than those seen earlier. Some of them were repeated, but not everyone comes to the event on all the days. The crowd would’ve definitely been delighted to see these cosplayers around.
Great dedication by all the cosplayers who played their part on all the three days.
The guests were enthusiastic to get their pictures clicked with all the cosplayers. Every cosplayer gets a chance to feel like a celebrity here.
There were many people assembled here today. After walking all day, people deserve some rest. The bland food and drinks from the food court area could be seen everywhere.
This was hugely popular. People had to wait in a queue for at least half an hour here. The sketch artists were brilliant; they were churning out one caricature after another in a matter of minutes.
They just launched the collection today. Fans of Rumi can look forward to pick up one of these (or the entire collection).
Irony at its best. One of the bitter fruits of commercialising everything.
This booth’s entrance was blocked by the crowd. So I took a shot of it from the side. Looks cool.
A perfect cosplay from head to toe.
Great stuff to be found at this stall; too costly for non-serious buyers though.
Enjoying the last few days of their independence. Microsoft and Minecraft. Not sure how that’ll work out.
Look at what just whizzed past by. An internet meme.
It was good to see a lot of independent artists given a chance to showcase their art. I don’t know whether they had to pay anything to get themselves a place to sit here, but I hope it wasn’t any significant amount even if they did have to.
Some of the artworks put up here were really good. They were also a lot cheaper than what you’d find elsewhere.
The papercut artworks look like real-life versions of vector designs. The artists were also accepting custom requests on the spot. It takes a lot of skill and patience to cut a paper exactly the way you want.
Rob DenBleyker from Cyanide & Happiness had an one hour session on the main stage. He is a funny guy.
Catwoman will always be popular with cosplayers.
One of the most boring sections. Play a game on Xbox One for 5 minutes? Seriously.
I liked these more compared to the rest. Most of the other t-shirts on sale were regurgitated and unoriginal.
Popular bumper stickers that you see almost everywhere. They were selling these at a premium.
I wouldn’t stick any of these on my vehicle though. Too tacky.
For those who want to experiment with portals.
Judge Dredd won the prize in Movie category I think. Or was it Comics? Not sure about that.
For those who still don’t get the reference.
Except there wasn’t any good food to be had here. I preferred to stay hungry.
You can imagine the amount of sweat being dripped in here.
Just look at the amount of people assembled under this one roof. Crazy indeed.
Choose your alter ego.
Don’t know how it tastes though.
Don’t make eye contact while you’re having these. Unless…you get it 😀
Just apply pressure to break the mould and start over. It’s also water soluble and edible.
Rs. 600 for a 500g pack of this special sand.
Nice to see Indian comics being represented here. I also saw Chacha Chaudhary and Nagaraj; wasn’t able to snap a picture of them though.
The professional cosplayers from Japan were back to delight the crowd.
I would’ve bought them if I wasn’t broke.
Splendid. Sacha Baron Cohen in his various avatars, followed by the Wolfpack and the most biting footballer of the year, Luis Suarez.
Can you guess them all? He’s played some memorable characters over the years.
Check them out here. Seriously impressed with their talent.
It wasn’t made of real fur if you’re wondering.
She looked really great. The eye lens really makes a difference.
Just imagine the possibilities? 😀
Didn’t see many Transformers around. It was great to see these two here.
She looked decent overall. Nice to see Sandman being represented.
I’ve captured a lot of merchandises today.
There were at least 1,000 different t-shirts to be found across all the stalls. Only a few of them had original designs though.
He’s a blowfish.
I’d heard about this before, but today I realized that kids really like Spiderman.
The three swords were well made. Hard and sturdy.
This is the same cosplayer who won the grand prize on Day 1. I came to know later that her name is Aorin Shariyari and she is a famous cosplayer in India.
She didn’t enter the competition today in any category though.
You can like her Facebook page Color Me Aorin to view all her cosplays.
Simple, but effective. Should be dedicated enough to lug this around. Won the prize in Sci-fi/Fantasy category.
Dr. Who was every excited to be beside TARDIS.
She won the prize in Animated Series category.
Cosplayers enjoying their moment on the stage.
She had to duct tape the wings through her headband. The wings collapsed partially by the time she went on stage. Cosplaying is no joke, especially if you need to wear props like wings.
Generic cosplay. He was helping out Maleficent while I took this pic. Crossover ideas in abundance at Comic Con.
Black Knight from Monty Python. Very few got the reference.
Robocop was back, confident as ever. I don’t know whether it is the light playing tricks, but the costume looked a bit refined today.
He had won the prize earlier too in other categories, but he returned today for the ultimate prize. Persistence really pays off. The crowd gave him a roaring cheer too; that’s enough a reason to be back on stage.
The guy cosplaying Robocop goes by the name Prady Das on Facebook. You can connect with him if you like to.
It must’ve been tough on them to select from the lot.
Who knew people would be so interested in cosplaying?
Yeah, then all the guys have to dress like Thor or He-Man 😀
I saw this cosplayer on all the three days.
It’s fascinating to watch all the cosplayers and guess which character they’re cosplaying as. Not recognizing a popular character might lower your street geek cred.
He looked confused for some reason.
There were many like this.
This one didn’t have any wings fortunately.
Jack Sparrow was selling himself to the judges by telling them directly that he’ll do a great cosplay in Chicago Comics and Entertainment Expo 2015 if selected. LOL at that!
This is something I didn’t expect to see here. It was surprising to see India’s favorite and infamous Bhabhi from the comics.
The makeup is excellent. Matches with the original one.
Cross-dressing as a form of cosplay? Why not. It’s hilarious, and the guy had no qualms about flaunting it.
Yes, it was a mad event indeed. Comic Con Bangalore 2014 was an amazing experience. Three days of absolute fun. Hope to see it grow into a much bigger fest the next time around.
