Best Nintendo cosplay

There was also someone dressed as Travis Touchdown and Sylvia from NMH there which was very good as well.

I'm hoping to cosplay (for the first time) as Wander from Shadow of the Colossus at next year's Manchester MCM expo, and go with a friend who hasn't decided who to cosplay as yet.
I remember when I went to Gamecity6 last year, I found it odd when we suddenly started seeing people walking around wearing green hats as we got closer to where it was at.
Rock on, girl gamers.

I got a picture with zero suit samus and marti. I am surprised the person who was from zelda and plays the song of storms didn't get in though.
When I go out some people ask me-Hey what's with the name. Well My real surname is Newcomb. And its sounds like Nukem as in Duke Nukem the game character (never played it, im two young). So I have adopted it and put in frustrating capital letters.

i took my sister to her first MCM expo, and she was just amazed by the whole experience. i`ve been quite a few times myself, so i knew what to expect. but taking my sister reminded me of the first year i went,
although, MCM has grown massively in the past 7 years it`s always been fun and i`ve never experienced any trouble or bad attitudes in all of the times that i`ve been.
as for costumes, i remember seeing quite a few zombie cosplayers, my sister got growled at a couple of times, which was kinda funny.
i also got a couple of pictures with a group of people that went as the scooby doo crew. they really looked the part aswell.
lastly, we went over to the signing tables and met warrick davis, he works at the bank in the harry potter movies. my sister is a big harry potter fan, so i took a photo of them together, and she got his signiture too, so that really made her day.
just a shame the weather was miserable, which was the polar opposite of may`s event. but atleast it wasn`t roasting inside though.

Each one of these cosplayers has obviously put a lot of time into their costumes and it really shows.
Cosplaying as Luigi but adding a unique touch by having the Poltergust 3000 is a great idea. All the characters from the Zelda series looked fantastic and well done to Marti for again been inventive with her costume, who else would have thought to go as a streetpass Mii? :)

I managed to get a picture with Zero Suit Samus too! She had a great costume, and all the other picks up there for that matter. My mate and I went as Kotake and Koume from Ocarina of Time and was thrilled when we found The windmill hut guy. Only about 4 people in the expo knew who we were (not including several Link cosplays XD) but it was a great saturday.

I'm suprised that the Entei cosplayer wasn't included in here. Either way, the Luigi cosplay looks hilarious, in a good way of course :)

These are all great, and while I didn't see any of them (probaby because I went on Sunday and spent the whole day at the Wii U Showcase), I did also see the Windmill Man and well as two equally brilliant costumes:

Image

After getting some lunch I saw these two. You see Princess Peach quite a lot, but this one had a Chain Chomp on a leash. I have the deepest respect for anyone who wears such a claustrophobic looking costume.

Image

Towards the end of the day I was in a rush to get home, but I couldn't leave without capturing this lady and her brilliant Syrenne costume complete with tatooed arms and intricate layered plates of armour. She told me that she was with a friend dressed as Yurick who had apparantly disappeared somewhere, and that I was one of the few people to recognise her probably due to The Last Story being only very recent and a Wii exclusive. It's a shame when such a good costume goes unrecognised.

Cool costume, Marti! :)

The Zelda ones are excellent, as is Zero Suit Samus!
I'd rather move around and be, than figure out life and what it means.

Okay, then. I've got a pretty good Ness costume though
