Ani-Jam’s Cosplay de Mayo was great! Held in the Lakeview picnic area at Woodward Park, there was a potluck, vendors (like me), raffles, a piƱata and, of course, lots of beautiful, cool and kick-ass cosplay. Here are a few photos from the event.

My table area. It was a windy day, so I had to be careful with what I put out, lest it fly away!

I can’t believe I won a raffle prize! Whoo-hoo! (Sorry if this is sideways, but I’m writing this post from my smartphone, so just be happy you can read this–I have stubby fingers for an artist–so let’s move on.)

Cosplay Contestants Unite!

The ladies saving themselves!

Neeka, one of the hard-working members of the Ani-Jam staff. Look at those eyes!

The Cosplay Contest winners!

Despite appearances, this trio isn’t clowning around! (Shout out to Justin, center, A Book Barn buddy!)

Spring gets clear, ’cause this Kitty is about to get beat!

A rollerskate cosplay pin-up worthy of the side of a B-52! I’m very proud of this shot, too!

This photo blog post wouldn’t be complete without a pair of Hobbit’s feet.
