The YouTube didn't work and the Vimeo crashed my phone. I've been using all morning and watching other videos.

All links work for me... anyone else having trouble?

The first one was broken but it has been repaired or has magically healed itself.

It was really choppy for me for some reason but I will be the first person to say THAT WAS GREAT! I've never been to a con, I'm not really into the cosplay thing, but I really enjoyed how much fun people seemed to be having. Always nice to see.

Looks like they also did it last year.

I feel like you can tell a lot about the bystanders from their reactions. I like the terrified/transfixed teenage boys in the backgrounds of a few of the cosplay dancers.

I was stranded in the bathroom last night with The Flu From Hell, and the only effing book within reach was a Clockwork Orange. Needless to say, when I finally got back to sleep, my dreams weren't the most awesome things ever. Then I click on the Vimeo link, and the still is what looks like a bunch of fucking droogs. Seriously, universe? That's my dumb luck.


That aside, this video is infinitely more amusing after just having watched the previously posted video about "How to Dance Goth". Dude at 1:42 is frickin getting it.

Up to the moment of watching that video, I firmly believed the term cosplay and by extension, all cosplayers were skeevy and weird. Now, of course, I admit my error and realize they are, in fact, the saviors of Mankind.

I love my freaky nerdy bredren. Party on, people.
