5 Standout Cosplays of 2011
Camilla d'Errico, who I interviewed last February, is a painter and comic book creator from Vancouver who is influenced in part by her longtime love of manga and anime. Central to d'Errico's work are the Helmetgirls, a series of female characters whose ethereal faces contrast with their clunky headgear.
This year at San Diego Comic-Con, we saw three young women dressed as Helmetgirls. Since d'Errico makes a lot of convention appearances, her work has become quite popular with the convention crowd. However, this was the first time we saw fans dressed as her characters. Hopefully, we'll see more next year.
Soon enough, characters from the episode turned up at conventions. Here are Fionna and the Ice Queen at Comikaze, the event we named Best New Convention of 2011.
