Dark Elf Cosplayer

My only decent shot from the technology expo at Abreeza last month.  I brought my DSLR along with the intention of taking pictures of the cosplayers but when push came to shove, I just didn't have the zest.

Cosplayers have become more elaborate in recent years.  They have special contacts to get that feral look, their armor is now made of molded rubber, and the girls are even more daring in what they bare.

The appeal is largely lost on me now, however.  Instead of awe at the creativity, all I'm seeing are...noisy kids in costumes.  Cosplay tells me how silly the cartoons would really be in real life.

And yeah: "Get off my lawn."
