Eirtakon Dublin 2015 – an Image Selection

Cosplay in Ireland? At a first glance that might be restricted to wearing a soccer outfit with a famous name on it, or dressing up like a gangsta … but far from it! The cosplay scene (and for an attempt at a definition see this Cosplay Primer on MediaMedusa) is indeed alive and well on the Emerald Isle. So much so that in November thousands flocked into Dublin’s Croke Park Conference Centre to see, be seen, buy, play, and have fun.

For a full review of Eirtakon, hop over to Ireland Travel at About.com. Here it is all about the images (linked by thumbnails, just click for a larger version) … of cosplayers, naturally. And by-and-by I hope to identify all of those in the images. If you know anybody, or are in the image yourself, give me a shout in the comments!
