Banana! I mean, Otakon pics.  
Here are some pics of my friends and I cosplaying FMA, as well as several other groups of good cosplayers. There were so many excellent FMA groups at Otakon this year---I just wish my photography skills were better! I apologize in advance for the grainy quality of some of these photos.

I stalked the Acme 30-minute photo booth after driving home today... here are the results. I'm no Ansel Adams, obviously...

For starters, me as Hawkeye.

My good friend cosplayed as Ed. We're sharing the washed-out love. I kept hitting her in the head with that little dart she has there... her patience never ceases to astound me. In this pic I receive some of my own medicine.

And now for the other folks!

This group was excellent (as well as being a bunch of sweet people!). Although you can't see it here, that Riza has that Roy on a chain. Beautiful. *fangirls*

A gaggle of Eds outside the Funimation booth. The one on the far right there is my Ed! ^_^

*The* best Envy at the con. And male. Rock. I believe there have been better pics of him elsewhere--will someone please hunt them down so I can save them?

EDIT: Found them! Vikki's page has them, a few posts down! Here be much better photo-taking than mine:

Another great group, this time with an amazing Al and Armstrong. During the Funimation photo-shoot, someone tossed the Armstrong a little glowing pink sparkle that he hung around his head!

And now for more of my stuffs... at the bottom where it belongs.

Cringe before my washed-out exhaustion!

I pwnz my Ed. She pwnz me back. One of my favorite sequences... came out grainier than I would've liked.

Us next to Funimation's enormous Al. I love Ed's expression here... I was going for "stoic" myself, but ended up looking drugged instead. Hah!


One final note. So how's about that L'arc concert, eh?
Do YOU like to [eat crab/crack/crap?] I do!
Thank you very much!

Just that concert made my first con and first cosplay ever even better. It also made me lose my voice near completely, but oh well.

*_* Yes..the concert was worth the hour and a half out in the hot hot sun. Last time I dress goth to fit in. Was also worth the extra hour to wait on them to finish setting up. XD Who else was amused by watching asian tech workers and security scurry back and forth to shoo people off chairs and take cameras? XD And it was crab. T_T I missed the 'encore' tho. Which was fine. >.> My hearing went wonky bout half way through. *_* so many fangirls screaming. *did her fair share too* Hyde is so *tiny* XDD Watchin his gyrating hips was nice.. >:3 And I missed many many of the fma cos-players. T_T Will have to post mine in a few days when I get to my own computer. Totally lucked out on the dealership room. Half the reason why I wanted to go to otakon. >.> The other half was the concert. *.* bought the smile cd, so it's not a huge loss. Just will hit the dealership room first thing, next time. SEE?! Go fucking early! Specially if it's a six hour drive and some stupid ingrate decides to up and die in a car wreck. Selfish people. >.>

Yeah, someone told me it was "crab" afterwards... but I preserve the ambiguity for the humor. ^_^

Hyde thrusting atop the speakers = heh.

I snuck a camera into the concert but (for some reason) didn't take any pictures. They probably wouldn't have come out anyway.

I wasn't planning on taking any pictures, but they made me give up the battery for my camera. :(
I got it back later on, but still...I felt like a criminal! (And they took our water bottles!)

Oh wow? Really? Im glad we were towards the middle of the line. The otakon crew told us that they would search bags and turn you away if you had a video camera, so some people had a chance to stash their stuff.

"They will be searching bags...*whisper* But not people....*makes motions to put cameras into pockers* " ~otakon crewmember.

I got in with my water bottle and camera fine, but all my shots came out blurry and useless :|

That Envy pwnz me!

I love the photos you made a good Hawkeye. =D (Grainyness does suck doesn't it? >_>;)

Otakon sounded amazing juding by everyone's posts so far. Wish my dad's friend in Baltimore hadn't moved all the way to Africa otherwise I would've gotten my passport and gone down there. xD;

You make a very pretty Riza! If only you had someone as Roy with you. I saw a photo of that Envy somewhere. But whoever he is, he is TEH SMEX. Best lookin' Envy I've ever seen. ^^

yay FMA cosplayers ^_^ I was the Roy on a chain in the one group you got a shot of - you were really sweet too (and you made a great Riza!) Great pics and glad you had a good weekend!

FMA cosplayers are the best, along with being the nicest I've met. ^_^ I was the Ed with the Roy on a leash and Riza holding it. Thanks for the compliment, you were an awesome Riza! :D

Yah. Friend was freaking out cause I had totally forgot to leave the camera behind. XD She even tried to get me to stuff it down my shirt. So she had to stuff it into her jacket pocket. XD Almost got caught too. Ya member when we had to go through the metal rotating thing? The camera got caught. X_x was waiting on it to fly out of the pocket and us having to leave. >.>;;;
