Motor City Comic Con – Cosplay Round-up

Reading Time: 3 minutes

This weekend I had the privilege of covering the Motor City Comic Con, Michigan’s largest comic and media convention, and one that I’ve personally gone to many times. While lighter than many cons on panels, it had a much larger vendor room and has become Michigan’s premier showcase of cosplay talents. As such, I thought it fitting that my first post about the Motor City Comic Con (there will be interviews I conducted, later) be a roundup of some of the outstanding cosplay I witnessed.

While this is by no means the absolute best (there were some I didn’t get to photograph), it’s representative of some of the best, and most amusing, I saw.

Without further ado:

Working Iron Man Suit

This Iron Man suit lit up, the face mask would move to cover the face or reveal it without any visible manipulation, and overall was just awesome.

Space Balls (Group Cosplay)

Needless to say, the schwartz was with these ones.

Optimus Prime

What can I say? I have a weakness for autobots.

Jar Jar Binks’ Head (group cosplay)

I’m sure someone from the Star Wars fandom will scold me for not including whoever the ladies were supposed to be cosplaying, but let’s be honest, there’s one reason I took the picture.

The Wesley Crushers (group cosplay, band)

These guys were fantastic, traveling around the con playing music for people. The instruments worked, and they weren’t bad.

Little Mermaid (group cosplay)

While he made a fantastic Eric, I wasn’t sure if he was cosplaying with her or just an odd dresser until he picked her up. Fantastic mermaid costume.

Bonus Cosplay – Abe Lincoln

Definitely not someone you expect to see at a comic con (at least without some zombie killing weapons), but a fantastic cosplay nonetheless. One picture of him, and another picture next to a normal-sized person to showcase his height.

To all who cosplayed at MCCC 2015, thank you. Your talents and passion are what make this convention so much fun to go to each and every year. See you all next year!
