    The ones I recognize:
    Two Simons(one with boota), A Gurren Lagann, Brock(pokemon), two ghostbusters, three akatsuki members, that one guy from yu-gi-oh(can't remember his name), Aang(last airbender), Jariah(Naruto), Mario, and the old turtle guy from Dragonball.

    the ones I don't know:

    metroid girl(?), 2 halo people(?), a doctor, a robber, 2 final fantaasy(?) people, some guy with a revolver, two guys from guitar hero(?), two guys with freaky masks, some guy that reminds me of Shia lebouf, two poeple that look like they're going to blow something up, two people with scratch-built weapons, and apeman.:p 

    Did you dress up? if so, who as?

    Well, 'metroid girl' would be Samus, the doctor is Doctor Mario, 'apeman' (if you are referring to who I think you are) is Darkseid, the people in masks are Larfleeze (the Orange Lantern), and Atrocitus (leader of the Red Lanterns), the guy with the revolver is Vash Stampede, the robber is actually a spy from Team Fortress 2, and the rest I'm not sure about.


    ...what?:tongue: 



    In any case, that convention looks like a lot of fun!

    In order from what I can tell:

    Simon from Gurren Langen, Darkseid, Master Roshi, TF2 Solider and Sniper, Cid and Cloud, TF2 Heavy and Engineer, Racoon Mario, Jariah from Naruto, dunno(looks gundam pilotish), Ghostbuster, TF2 Spy, Dr Mario, Samus, Orange and Red lanterns, Aang, Naruto Ninjas and the dude from Yu Gi Oh (Kaiba iirc), dunno (guitar hero guys?), Simon again, Ghostbuster, Vash, Brock, Zeon Officer and a Zaku, and the Gurren Langen robot.

    I went to A-kon a few years back, couldn't get too much as I ended up flying from NY and didn't wanna pay for baggage claim or anything, but I did pick up a lot of cheap comics which was nice. I got two friends there now actually, was trying to see if they showed up in any of those pics but I didn't seem em.

    It's a fun con, but when I was there all the food places closed at like 7 in the evening so that ended up sucking for a night owl like me. Hope you brought lots of your own snacks if it's in the same place it was when I was there :lol

    my brother said it is the same hotel as it has always been apparantly, so yea i know the food is expensive, we brought sodas and ate at CiCi's, if i had brought my actual camera if i had batteries i would of taken way more pics, but yea, it was quite fun

    the guys nobody has figured out are some random guy and kamina with guitars (they went around singing haha they were awesome) and the pilot is a battlestar galactica pilot

    what was insane was some of the prices, dude had a sealed g1 prime for $300, sealed g1 devastaor for $300, sealed g1 rodimus prime for $200....there was a masterpiece grimlock for $170, there was also movie wal-mart exclusive divebomb for $25 :lol  and there was the king grimlock, didn't get price, and i also saw a alternity starscream....what was at an amazing price was a BONE WHITE 100% COMPLETE G1 JETFIRE FOR $120.....i drooled over it haha what sucks is i didn't have the cash for it
