Anime Evolution 2010 Cosplay

Occurring in the middle of August and in the hottest weekend this month or year in Vancouver is Anime Evolution, the local convention. I salute the cosplayers who braved the freaking hot weather! Even though it's almost 30 degrees Celsius on all three days, people are still willing to go out there in the out-of-season-clothing for costumes.

As before, in case any of these cosplayers here do not want to be featured here on my site and/or if the cosplayers want the high resolution original version of their photo or any other requests, please email me and I'll comply with your request as soon as possible.

Holo from Spice and Wolf
Sengoku Nadeko from Bakemonogatari
Sheryl Nome from Macross Frontier. My favourite Sheryl outfit, btw :D
A gaggle of cosplayers that was lining up for the dealers room... Don't know all of them, I was just aiming for Bonta-kun ^^; I know the furthest left is from Persona and the one on the right of Bonta is from Vampire Knights and the furthest right is from Kingdom Hearts?
Noriko Takaya from Gunbuster aka Top o Nerae (Aim for the Top). So rare to see this.
Nanoha sans Raging Heart
Revolutionary Girl Utena
Mr. Popo from Dragonball. I was wondering if it was hot or not for him. I mean sure he's bare-chested, but black absorbs heat ^^;
Danboard from Yotsuba to
Danboard hugging Reisen (from Touhou). Reisen is actually Sayoko :D
I offered Sayoko a ride to UBC instead of going on a bus with her cosplay. It was still interesting because we still have to stop at red lights, lol. I think one lady was staring at her and smiling. I can't help but think about Playboy bunnies and wondered if that's what the lady is thinking XD

Sooo glad I found a Kireihana (aka Bellossom cosplayer), she's on the far right along with Vileplume and... not sure about the one on the left.
Sailor Pluto... Sorry for the blurry picture =/
Pedobear! Before I took this picture, he was seen with a child... Not sure what he was doing with the kid...
Principal Kuno from Ranma 1/2. Quite rare to see Ranma 1/2 cosplayers these days and I found two this weekend!
Strike Gundam from Gundam Seed
Lilith from Darkstalkers/Vampire Saviour
2 Celtys! Durarara is really gaining a lot of popularity these days!
Azusa Nakano from K-ON's 2nd season first ending animation, Listen!
A fishing Kappa! Not too sure if this one's from a specific series or not ^^;
Nekomimi Shana from Shakugan no Shana. 
I actually talked to her the day before in a panel because she saw my Shana bag and she told me she'd cosplay as Shana. Good thing I found her :D

Two Mugis from Listen! The female Mugi was surprised to see a male Mugi, lol!
Touhou group cosplay photo from the Touhou panel on Saturday. Please don't make me name the characters... Sayoko's Reisen is here again!
A wider group photo
Reimu and Marisa playing the Pocky game... Yuri?
Yes, I know this is a bit odd, but it was cool at the same time ^^ One of the Saiyan's ultimate form!
Kanbaru Suruga from Bakemonogatari
I actually had a nice conversation with Suruga and her male friend (possibly boyfriend?). It actually started with him asking if I actually knew where she's from and of course I spouted out her name and mention the lilies in the opening animation ^^; Her favourite opening was Mayoi's. I know a lot of people liking Nadeko's opening so it was rare to hear someone liking Mayoi's opening. So we talked a bit about Bakemonogatari and online ordering. I thanked her again for the photo before they left.

Tales from the Abyss. I assume Luke is on the far left? Tear in the middle and Asch on the right.
Yes, I know, another Danboard ^^; But this one has light-up eyes and a mini Danboard on its head! Dunno the one in the red, from Team Fortress?
Sazh from Final Fantasy XIII
A typical thing with conventions is that there will be a lot of Final Fantasy cosplayers, especially the current one. There were starting to be too many, lol, so I took pictures of ones that I don't have yet ^^; This guy was perfect!

YAY! Female Ranma! Megane Ranma hehehe.
Cecil from Final Fantasy IV; Paladin version.
Angel Beats cosplay. I only know Tenshi on the left...
I still haven't gone further than episode 3 of Angel Beats, so I don't really know the characters. I had heard from ClearTranquil that he is cosplaying Angel Beats and perhaps the only group at the con... I had assumed that this was his group ^^; So unfortunately I didn't find CT this year. Sorry Zac!

I think this was the better shot of the BRS group even though they're not looking towards me.
Black Rock Shooter seems to be gaining some popularity as well, but this group is not doing the "Miku" version. Rin on the left, Kaito or Len on the right and... I don't see twintails in the center... So... MEIKO version!? AWESOME! MEIKO's been neglected this year T-T

Lala from To-Love-Ru
Mari Makinami from Evangelion 2.0
Phew... That's all of them. I actually took quite a lot more than I thought. Perhaps because there wasn't much to do around the panel or there were quite a lot more cosplays this year. I felt really odd in casual on the first day ^^;

More Anime Evolution coverage soon. Lots of photos to organize and lots of write-ups to deal with... The cosplay seems to be the easiest to start :P

Also check out Kam Lau's Anime Evolution cosplay photos. He had the advantage of wearing something light so he can stay outside in the sun, lol.
