As promised, here are some of the cosplayers from Norwescon.
We’ll start with a fairy.

At least, that’s what she resembles. I assume she’s some sort of magical being.
Now we have someone who was all armored up.
Keep in mind, it’s not a real gun. Some attendees do bring edged weapons, and those are peace-bonded, using the same thick plastic used in plastic handcuffs.
Now we have a winged being.
I’m not going to assume this is a fairy. Use some imagination.
I’ll pause from the amusing narrative. Some of these folks work all year on their costumes. The attention to detail is impressive. If you attend a convention like this, the polite thing to do is ask permission to take a picture, then show it to the person after it’s snapped.
I asked, but the I took this picture when her eyes were shut. (I actually kind of like it.)
Thanks to the miracle of smart phones, I could quickly see my error and take another one.
She was a good sport.
And here is the Star Trek couple.
They were as cute as they look.
Here we have an elegant woman.
I’m guessing such outfits are incredibly hot after a while.
This is a member of the sheriff’s office. For real. She was patrolling in the hotel.
They say they get mistaken for cosplayers.
She could always protect us from the Dalek.
It actually moved around at a good rate.
So tomorrow, I’ll have the most beautiful cosplayer.
