I really enjoyed the cosplay at this year's meet--Batman, Tarzan, Isis, Captain Ohio, Mego Klingons, a terrific Soldier Ape, some GOONS, and probably some more I missed.

I think it added an additional zing! to the meet without being distracting. At least I hope so.

And Brue--thanks!

No. Thank you.

It's not cosplay. It is real.

And Logan was there.

Thanks Brue, Lilly, and Scott/PNGwynne for recruiting me for your group cosplay. It was fun. I'll bring black pants next year. 8)

I was really impressed by the creativity of the costumes. We didn't just have someone dressed as Isis; we had someone dressed as MEGO Isis, right down to the tiara being painted on. :) It was fantastic seeing the folks dressed up, and the "Batman vs. the Grand Order of Occidental Nighthawks" battle we saw was great. Got some video of that I need to upload to YouTube. Only thing I regret is that I didn't get a shot of Mego Tarzan complete with his flesh colored bodysuit. It made a fun event even more enjoyable.

Thanks for doing it! And I will gladly do a GOON encore if you bring your uniform next year.

I was only in the Mego Tarzan suit for 15 or 20 minutes. I would have worn it an hour plus. But I had to race home to get stuff I forgot.

I'd have done my X-Men cosplay, but it was just too hot.

We may have to have to add a costume contest next year!

It is surprising how many people were in costume. I don't think we need a contest. But I would support a contest if it was informal, based on dealer room presence and attendee opinion rather than a sit down separate room thing. Or maybe just a participant award for people dressed up. I have a couple dozen soccer trophies left over from the City Rec Center soccer league.

I"m not very competitive, but I'm particular and I've been mulling upgrading another couple of villains for years. MegoMeet is a fun incentive to do those, though it's time-consuming (and hot).

Those costumes are great! I'm hoping to bring one or two this year, when I show up at Mego Meet for the first time...Yay!
