Disney and Star Wars Cosplay at ConnectiCon 2009

4 Aug

Most of the cosplay at ConnectiCon is either anime or gaming characters, but since it’s a multi-genre conference, all sorts of characters show up! Here are a few Disney costumes I spotted last weekend at the Hartford Convention Center (and captured with my sub-optimal camera phone, unfortunately).

Alice in Wonderland

Alice in Wonderland, with the Cheshire Cat

Tinker Bell and Peter Pan

Tink and Peter, woot!

The 501st Legion Connecticut Garrison

The 501st Legion Connecticut Garrison! I was lucky enough to interview a representative; watch for this on the Those Darn Cats podcast in coming weeks.

Carl Fredricksen from Up

Carl Fredricksen, from Pixar's Up. After I took his picture, he gave me a balloon. ❤

Kirk vs. Vader

The ultimate nerd showdown!!!


Prince Ali, fabulous he


Kiki, from Kiki's Delivery Service (an ever-popular costume for sure)


Maleficent, evil incarnate, seems strangely out of place against the backdrop of Convention Center striped carpet

    the Carl Fredrickson one is killing me! LOL! What’s funnier is that if it wasn’t for the walker … would anyone be able to tell who he was suppose to be? Classic.
