id: 34444
OK, I'm not one to dump on costumes.. but this is the worst companion cube I've ever seen

One of my favorite things about cosplayers is seeing characters doing normal things. Here's Assassin's Creed's Altair checking Twitter or something

Joy backstage
id: 34462
This guy was helping us seat people and hand out ballots

Keep the levels below +2!

I love the view from the top of the escalator
id: 34474
The view from the other escalator, down in the fountain area
id: 34475
Vic stands with the long shadow of responsibility. It's tough to keep turning people away who really want to see our show
id: 34476
This is the most pitiful picture of the weekend.. a dirty blanket and pillow with an empty can of Four Loko. And this was inside the convention center!
id: 34477

Make nice little piles!
id: 34485
Joy checks her phone
id: 34486
It's Bob!

One of those aliens from Star Wars
id: 34502
Impressive Mass Effect costume!
id: 34503
Anyone who knows Vic will get the joke here..
id: 34504
This was my brilliant idea. Taping glow sticks.. to an actual stick! That'll make us much more visible during seating
id: 34505
We also set these up to direct people to specific colors
id: 34506
This is what the sticks look like when you wave them around
id: 34507
Our backstage area
id: 34508
Full house!
id: 34509
We packed that place to the brim!
id: 34510
OK, there were a couple of seats, but they were so bad we didn't even consider them actual seats
id: 34511
Count, count, count! We only have an hour or two before the results are due!
id: 34512
Amanda and Joy get into their Render-chan and Error-chan costumes for Iron Editor
id: 34513
These staff pool folks were very helpful in counting. This girl here was a Nikon fan and kept hassling me for taking her picture with a lowly Nikon
id: 34514
We used that box for ballots and called them Quaker Votes
id: 34515
Peter hosted Iron Editor this year. He stayed in his costume since the theme was "Vampires Suck"

id: 34523
Ooo, so pretty
id: 34524
Jefferson loves photography
id: 34525
I was hoping to get a better version of this picture of Vic and his server but never did. I call it "The Man and the Machine"
id: 34526
Mike, Amanda as Render-chan, and Joy as Error-chan
id: 34527
These two were way too good at "name the anime". They went forever!
id: 34528
Sailor Moon!
id: 34529
Daft Punk!
id: 34530
The trenchcoat really helps to make this photographer look less creepy.....
id: 34531
id: 34532
Peter and Katie won Upbeat with their amazing original song and video about Squid Girl! This guy came running up to be in the picture

id: 34537
This group even had a space sphere cosplayer!
id: 34538
One of the back hallways that we call "Jeffrey tubes" for some reason
id: 34539
Bryce says "think I can pull this off?"
id: 34540
id: 34541
Aaaand no.
id: 34542
Bryce is obviously pretty bored
id: 34543
More balancing?
id: 34544
What're you drinkin'? What're you buyin'?
id: 34545
These guys are standing where I stood when I took my Powershot's last ever photo, launching me into the DSLR world
id: 34546
Now here is some real creativity. He made a costume entirely out of those free super saiyan hair things from the Dealer's Room! Everyone loved him
id: 34547
Oh no! This guy's wheeling Otakon away!
id: 34548
Super Saiyan Hair Man was showered with praise
id: 34549
Troll man!
id: 34550
Cause that's what anime cons are all about
id: 34551
My staff badge this year. And I got a spiffy ribbon for donating to Japan!
id: 34552
I found our glow sticks! It turns out the next group also used them for easting.
id: 34553
The gofers who worked for us got a pretty sweet gig. Mostly hanging out and watching AMVs
id: 34554
id: 34555
I really like this picture. Something about the composition. I think it's a lot better than if I had asked him for a picture and he was just standing there
id: 34556
Why are there so many taiko drum games?
id: 34557
Gaming goggles?
id: 34558
Splash Woman! The only female megaman villain
id: 34559
The Hellsing cosplayers come well armed
id: 34560
This could be a decent wallpaper!
id: 34561
Every time we left AMV Ops we had to hold the door closed for 30 seconds or it wouldn't lock
id: 34562
Rolling the server back to AMV Ops
id: 34563
Panty and Stocking! The last cosplayer photo for the main Otakon batch! What a year!
