Fanime 2012

Once again, I attended Fanime, an anime convention “by fans, for fans.” These are photos of people involved in cosplay. Click any picture to see it in larger size.

Non-Anime Characters

Here are Dr. Strange (Master of the Mystic Arts), Rorschach from Watchmen, the Mighty Thor, and Darth Maul.

Humanoid Anime Characters

Other than the first guy, who is dressed as the character Lupin III, I have no idea who most of these are. But the costumes are very creative. There were a lot of people dressed similarly to the person in the second picture.

Mostly human, part animal

The people dressed as pandas were the most impressive of the lot. I'm not sure if the Chinese lion dancers belong in this category, but here they are.
