Armageddon 2012 cosplay

One of the features of Armageddon are the colourful and creative costumes that are often made by the wearer.  The amount of creativity, skill, time and effort that goes into making a costume is amazing.  Wearing a costume based on a character in movies, TV, games etc is called ‘Cosplay’.

Australian cosplay champions for 2012

These ladies (above) entered the cosplay competition with a set, props and all, performing a skit.  It was really funny, showcasing their costumes brilliantly.

Armageddon offers people – wearing costume or street clothes – the opportunity to have their photos taken with stars.  This photo of Chris Heyerdahl (Stargate, Sanctuary, True Blood, Hell on Wheels) with my friend Caz is my all-time favourite.  The look on Chris’ face, isn’t he hilarious?!

The highlights of the costume competition prize giving ceremony will be up soon – as soon as the video is edited, converted to MP3, uploaded and processed by YouTube.  I’ll add the link as an update as soon as it’s online.
