Botcon 2010 costumes




I think the costumes were one of the coolest things about Botcon.  
They were amazing. 


Animated Blurr.


An excellent G1 Ironhide. 


Lord Starscream.

Here you can see how large he is.
 

SG Prime, plushy-style.


I think the red is an original character, and the white is Animated Prowl.
edit - sorry, white guy is Yoketron.  I am a derpface.  (My new favorite word!)


Transmental Dinobot with a fan.


Ravage.
 

Very interesting, it is amazing (I keep saying amazing, but that word just covers it) how creative people are.
Most costumers are women (go figure) and costumes can cost anywhere from $20 to $1500 to make, depending on materials used. 
Boxes, craft foam, fabric over foam, pvc pipe, industrial foam, fiberglass, plastic canvas, cardboard, cereal boxes - the materials are endless. 
I believe the Blurr pictured above was about $200.

These are screen shots from the costume panel.
G1 Wheeljack.


One girl dressed her cat up as Ravage.  Really cute.


G1 Frenzy. 
This was a 10 year old kid, whose mom did an amazing job.  I wish I had gotten a real picture of him, as he was walking around, but I never caught up with him.  The detailing really made the costume.


G1 Megatron.
 

Animated Blitzwing.  I really liked this one.


Group shot.
Left to right, Transmetal Dinobot, Sari (?), Blurr, G1 Perceptor and SG Prime.


If I had time to make a costume, I think it would be Cosmos. 
He needs more love.
