GenCon Cosplay Pictures Set 06

  1. Kratos (from God of War) as a female, portrayed by Jenna Fairchild.
  2. An unknown (possibly an original character?), portrayed by Casey Renee.
  3. Unknown (Casey Renee), unknown, Kratos (Jenna Fairchild), and unknown (possibly Arrow? I haven’t watched the show yet).
  4. Thor and Loki. Whenever I moved, they moved, and Loki was always holding his staff in front of Thors face from my angle. Seems appropriate for Loki.
  5. Not sure - I suspect the Enchantress, but could be Loki.
  6. Unknown.
  7. KAITO (Magnet version), portrayed by Electricblue.
  8. Unknowns, but the one on the left is portrayed by Airy Peterson.

GenCon Cosplay Pictures Set 05

  1. Unknowns.
  2. Unknowns.
  3. Unknowns, except on the left. That is Spockula, portrayed by Gary Barclay.
  4. Pocahontas with Meeko, from Pocahontas.
  5. Loki (of Marvel Comics), holding the Cosmic Cube and looking pleased. Possibly at having fooled Superman there?
  6. Unknown, I believe Zelda, Queen Elsa, and an unknown.
  7. The same set, with someones baby. The baby wasn’t that appreciative, but may find this picture very cute later on.
  8. Unknown.
  9. A pair of drow (dark elves, from Dungeons and Dragons).
  10. Thor. I’d heard they were making Thor a woman now, but I imagined someone older. The hammer was the best I’ve seen, by the way. And I notice she is wearing ruby slippers, which I guess kind of fits… “There’s no place like Asgard, there’s no place like Asgard, there’s no place like Asgard.” Loki is going to be pissed when a house falls on him, I bet.

GenCon Cosplay Pictures Set 04

And this set includes the last few usable pictures from the costume parade. Again, I appreciate any help identifying these.

  1. Saruman the White, with a hint of Gandalf the Grey behind him. I just missed Radagast the Brown. All from Lord of the Rings.
  2. Rainbow Dash, and I believe Fluttershy, from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, but clearly inspired by the Rainbow Factory video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m6h4hfcRURM.
  3. Unknown (and mostly hidden, unfortunately). I wouldn’t have posted this one as incomplete as it is, but I am curious.
  4. Unknown, though possilby Morpheus from Sandman.
  5. Belle, from Beauty and the Beast.
  6. Unknown, but I couldn’t resist - too cute.
  7. Unknowns, possibly from Warhammer?
  8. Bulma Briefs, from DragonBall.
  9. Unknown.
  10. Unknown.

Maximumble - #928 – Shoe

You know, I always wondered about the old woman who lived in a shoe. Think of the smell!

GenCon Cosplay Pictures Set 03

All ten of these pictures are from the costume parade, same as before my camera was not intended for people on the go.

  1. Ms. Marvel and Thor, from Marvel Comics. I don’t remember the name of the fellow with the skull mask.
  2. Unknowns.
  3. Harley Quinn, the Joker, and one of Arthurs knights - I think Sir Bedivere.
  4. Unknowns.
  5. Unknowns.
  6. Unknowns.
  7. Mostly unknowns, though the one on the right appears to be Mikasa Ackerman from Attack on Titan.
  8. The Ice King from Adventure Time on the left, and the Goblin King from Labyrinth in the center.
  9. Unknowns, though the one on the left looks Assassins Creed-y.
  10. Partly out of the picture, Alice - does GenCon count as Wonderland? One of the Doctors Who, I can’t keep track of them honestly. A Thor in the background, and unknown approaching.

GenCon Cosplay Pictures Set 02

The last three pictures of this set are from the costume parade. Unfortunately I was late to this and couldn’t get into a good position. Also, my camera was not doing so well with moving targets - it takes too long to charge the flash, too long to save the pictures, so about half my photos from the parade are unusable and I only got pictures of a small fraction of the cosplayers.

  1. Tonto, friend and mentor to the Lone Ranger.
  2. Unknowns.
  3. Princess Anna and Olaf, from Frozen.
  4. A Big Daddy and a Little Sister, from BioShock.
  5. The same Big Daddy and Little Sister, plus an unknown.
  6. Queen Elsa and Princess Anna, from Frozen.
  7. Zelda and Link, from the Zelda games.
  8. A wizard of some kind.
  9. Jack Frost from Rise of the Guardians and an unknown who I think is some kind of Pokemon.
  10. James in the center, with Jessie exiting to the left, members of Team Rocket from Pokemon. Ronan from Guardians of the Galaxy can be seen in the background (I have a picture of him that will show up several sets later).

GenCon Cosplay Pictures Set 01

A bit later than I intended, but I do generally think of days as being from dawn to dawn and by that thinking this is still Tuesday. As before, the images are compressed using the site compressor.io and I need lots of help with identifying the cosplays.

  1. An unknown who is rather cheerful for someone with a katana stuck through her gut (yes, it does come out the other side).
  2. Loki, in female guise.
  3. Unknown. He said the outfit was hastily assembled, about a week. Pretty good for a week of work.
  4. Unknown. An intrepid steampunk adventurer of some kind, possibly about to explore the mysteries of the womens restroom.
  5. Three unknowns. Though I feel I should know them, I just can’t come up with names.
  6. The Black Widow and Iron Man, kind enough to pose for pictures.
  7. An unknown that again I feel I’ve seen before and should know.
  8. Another unknown.
  9. Disney villainess Maleficent.
  10. Poison, from Final Fight and Street Fighter both (Capcom games).

Back on tumblr - soon, anyway

Work and play have conspired to keep me off tumblr for a couple or few weeks. Apparently I should do that more often, I gained followers while not posting. I’m kind of conflicted about that. :P

Anyway, I have a few pictures from GenCon (mostly went to buy stuff, and didn’t expect nearly as many cosplayers as I saw), but I may not post them until Sunday night. I have hopes of going to Matsuricon this weekend - I’m not sure, because I broke a toe in my sleep Wednesday night. Don’t ask me how, I was asleep at the time and have no idea. (Well, I’ve got an idea, I was probably rolling in my sleep and my toe got caught in the sheets - but I’m not certain.)

I won’t have any time tonight to post or catch up on posts, and if I go to Matsuricon I may not have any time until Sunday night (and not much then) and it may be Tuesday before I get any tumblring done.

Ceramic 3D Printer

Artist Jonathan Keep has put together a 3D printer to produce digital objects out of clay, and has put together a document to build one:

Based on the delta type of 3D printer my aim has been to use parts that can either be made with basic DIY tools and skills, or ordered off the internet. The design is specifically for printing in clay but could be adapted to work with other materials. Many other self build 3D printers use parts printed in plastic but with this project I did not want to be reliant on already having access to a 3D printer.

More Here

Looking at Jonathan’s website (in particular the ‘Digital Pots' section), you will see various series based on various ideas. There is the Random Growth of generative forms, Sound Surface based on musical audio data, and other computational methods.

More examples of work can be found here

"

Orlando, who was dining with Leonardo DiCaprio at the Cipriani restaurant on Wednesday night, was very, very angry, when Justin, who didn’t have a reservation at the eatery, approached their table to try to talk to the actors.

DiCaprio had proceeded to shoo away the pop singer with his hand, leading Bieber to provoke a fight which saw Bloom jump over a sofa to get at the 20-year-old Baby singer at the restaurant.
