Pictures from Otakuthon 2009

If you have been following faithfully, you will know that I was NOT at Otakuthon this year, but that many of my friends were, and as I had asked of them, they took pictures. And people I've never even heard of took pictures. And all these people are posting their pictures. So now, I almost feel like I was there (almost).

I feel it is my duty as a Costumeholic to post some of these pictures for you my numerous faithful readers (you're all welcome to make yourselves known anytime or else I'll start thinking I'm talking/writing to myself here). I've been meaning to do so for days, but couldn't for numerous reasons (the main one can be explained in two words: Teething + Baby).

Disclaimer: The following pictures were NOT taken by me. For the most part, they feature friends of mine that gave their permissions for me to post their picture here, but if you see a picture that you either took or that features you and you would like me to give you credit or take it down, just drop me a line. In no way would I want to steal credit for something. Ever. Really!

Now we get to the "I don't actually know these people but their costumes are great so I want to show them" section of this post:

I'm a CardCaptor Sakura fan and I have to say, this costume is particularly well done.

I do like the whole CyberGoth look (in fact I'm working on a project...) so these two caught my eye.

Jusdepomme as Yukari (From Paradise Kiss)*

*Thank you Sakura for answering the call and enlightening me to who and what this was. Truly appreciated.

OK, here, I just HAD to show this costume for the work that was put into the dress. I mean look at all this beading! All I can say is WOW!

I saved the best for last! Breathtaking, wouldn't you say?


  1. The Girl in the blue dress is Melissa Langlois (aka Jusdepomme) and she's dressed as Yukari from Paradise Kiss

  2. Thank you very much for the information. I've edited my post to include it under her picture.

  3. Le Link dans notre photo de Zelda, il a une page dA, son surnom est gwiguig (gwigui?)

  4. C'est corrigé, merci beaucoup!
