Thanks, I'll make that clear.

Nice gallery, not too sure but I think the "kid Joker" picture might actually be a couple who've genderswapped the roles, given that Joker's definitely got cleavage and Harley Quinn's a bit broad shouldered.

Good eye, and you might be right. It's very disguising costumery to be sure.

>Implies Aquaman is a weakling...

*SIGH

-super strong, fast, can Hulk Jump, regeneration & healing powers
-extreme resistance to heat, cold, & gravity changes
-telepathy that rivals Martian Manhunter, works on any animal descendant from the ocean, and induces seizures in humans
-Hydrokenesis... for instance completely draining the water out of any living thing
-Near invulnerability which all atlanteans have in order to just casually walk around the merciless gravity at the ocean floor
-Army of atlantean soldiers just like him, mages, and an advance armory of weapons
-So rich makes Bruce Wayne & Lex Luthor net worth look like a peasant heavily in debt
-Wife who is a female version of him, except for being a trained assassin & lacking in mercy
-King of 90% of the Earth
-and wields Poseidon's Trident which has its own power set

But hey Super Friends is the go to source for bringing out the best in our heroes, rite?

Think it's just joking at the same identity that Aquaman's had hanging around him as a character since, well, Super Friends. Sad thing is that even though he is pretty badass and could easily make a film/game, the next time Aquaman will probably get some mainstream recognition is if he:

a) Gets a bit cameo part in Batman vs Superman
b) They have him in a sequel to "The Lego Movie."

Saying that, ol' Wonder Woman's in almost the same boat, poor gal. Seriously DC, get on this.

*peers at earlier posts*

Well, my work here was done for me...I came to complain about the Aquaman weakling thing.

So...

As an aside, Aquaman's one of the most useful characters in Lego Batman 2, to the point there are some things in the game literally only he can do, with his underwater mobility, super strength, and ability to generate water streams without a source.

Responding to all the above: Yes you are all right. Also, however, I was joking around. No harm in that, I hope? I was counting on you to recognize the popular perception of Aquaman as the basis for the joke. I am aware he's a very powerful practically-a-god-of-the-sea.

I'll add that as problematic as Flashpoint is in many ways, (especially since it gave us the New 52), Aquaman was used to amazing effect in it.

You know, whenever someone mentions Aquaman all I can think of is this:

Also, I liked high fashion Jedi. That was great.

I would do things for that man in the Franky Costume.

Actually, both of them were females, Harley was just really tall and The Joker was quite a bit shorter. The costumes on both looked great in person too.

The gentleman above is the man who took the photos. Nice job, David!

For more of the Warhammer 40,000 guys. I've been following Gary a bit and he's certainly pretty good at his costume. Wonderful stuff he does.

Nice photos! Sad that you guys didn't upload the one you guy of me as Green Arrow and my g/f as Black Canary though q.q lol will you guys be uploading more photos :)?

Thanks for clarifying. And for taking the pics.

Seriously, you missed some of the BEST cosplays. These pictures look like you only took Sunday pictures (when everyone was winding down). MegaCon has some of the most dedicated Cosplayers in Florida, and as proof, I offer the following:

Actually, the pictures were taken on Saturday, but I'll be the first to say that there was a LOT of amazing cosplay at the show. Some pictures didn't turn out, some just missed the cut, and some just didn't cross paths (many were at photo shoots or such) . The hall was packed this year ... probably the highest density of people I've ever seen in my years at the show. Trying to catch people in the crowds to take shots was insane. I saw an amazing Pyramid Head costume, some wickedly good League of Legends cosplayers, a fantastic Weapon X, and I'll go on record as saying that bladescavenger and his g/f made for an awesome Arrow/Black Canary duo too.

Unfortunately, I was just one writer (who happened to have a camera) in a sea of people enjoying the show. If I could have caught everything, I absolutely would have. And I'll go a step further and say that MegaCon has some of the most dedicated cosplayers not only in Florida, but anywhere.

Yeah, one thing to be advised on is that Photo Shoots happen from (generally) 1p-5p on Saturday, with them Sparsely active on Friday from 1p-3p.

Best times to take pictures is actually about 5p on Fri/Sat, and 3p on Sun. I know I emptied my phone's battery twice on Saturday from 4:00p to 6:00p. It was insane.

This seemed like a weak year for cosplay. Even the ones you showed weren't all that good compared to the usual. Really the only ones that wowed me were the 40K guys (who have been there the last couple years) and the steampunk wings (which are a lot more impressive in person).

Then again, I might be a bit jaded. This megacon was not it's best year overall.

Yeah...I would have to agree, but that's mainly because Cosplay-worthy titles for the last year, were far and few in between. Frozen was 'meh' to a lot of people this year (I only took the Frozen pic because they did a combo with more than just the two female leads). Although, I have to say that the LoL Cosplays were actually pretty great. Some people did some kick ass Cosplays that looked like they did a lot of time.

Cosplays I don't want to see anymore:
- Homestuck
- Poison Ivy, Harliquinn, Joker

Every time I see one of these, I just yawn. Now, if someone comes up with a variation on these Cosplays, like a Steampunk, or a really interesting different rendition of it, its AOK, but, seriously, I saw a BAJILLION Homestucks.

Biggest problem we had this year was just the management of it all. Do you want a perfect storm, here's a perfect storm:

- MegaCon2014 in the North Concourse
- Clash of the Titans (Cheerleader Competition, supposedly) in the West Concourse
- SeaWorld's 50th Anniversary Celebration

Yeah...the numbers are looking at 125k people over three days visiting the OCCC/SeaWorld area. People from SeaWorld wanted to see what was going on at the OCCC on Saturday, which I saw more 'bewildered' faces enter the North Concourse than normal. Owners of Hotels and Restaurants loved last weekend. Employees of the surrounding area hated it.

The biggest problem that OCCC is currently facing is the traffic is impossible to manage for MC because of its inherent audience; most people that come to MegaCon are 1-2 people per car, rather than Bus loads of people. OCCC is suffering from a "non-road-based" point of entry, like a train or light rail. If you could light rail from OCCC to the Airport, I guarantee it will solve a lot of problems.

And now I feel bad for accusing Harley of being a dude... sorry Harley...

To be fair, he is only king of 71% of the planet.

I counted living on the coast or near bodies/streams/rivers of water
