I don't recall seeing Dr. Eggman ever wearing a Top Hat. It's still a great costume though.
Hey! I went to high school/was in plays with Ryan (Lumiere)! He's a cool guy, check him out!
It's gratifying - if surprising - to see the local sci-fi fest appear in The Escapist. And it seems I missed a few interesting cosplayers this year, too - but at least I could see them here.
