Cosplay, Atlanta-style

I’m no expert, but I know what I like. And while I don’t actually participate in Cosplay myself, I can appreciate the time and effort (if not always the aesthetic) of the hobby.

That’s why it’s cool that local Cosplayer Sasuke (Hayley Chapman) is featured in this month’s Wired magazine.

It’s been a long time since I hit Dragon Con, but I hear the local Cosplay scene is quite diverse and thriving (see Anime Weekend Atlanta).

My wife actually works with a guy whose wife is another local Cosplay celebrity (Coslebrity?), Lindze Merritt. Which reminds me of the following exchange:

Dark Helmet: Before you die there is something you should know about us, Lone Star.
Lone Starr: What?
Dark Helmet: I am your father’s brother’s nephew’s cousin’s former roommate.
Lone Starr: What’s that make us?
Dark Helmet: Absolutely nothing! Which is what you are about to become.

Maybe I ought to try some Spaceballs/Mel Brooks Cosplay.

There you have it. Atlanta Cosplay on a Spring day!
