Holy macaroni! UtopYA Con was Team Timid Monster’s first experience with the insane world of female authors of young-adult fiction. Fortunately for us, it was a good insane.

We figured, like any con, there would be some passionate fans and authors…what we were unprepared for was how utterly welcoming, kind, and generous everyone was. Not that normal con-goers aren’t, but there was elevated energy at UtopYA that has since overflowed into our lives.

What we thought would be a goofy cosplay sideshow at Anime Blues Con has blown up to be a massive ball-o-awesome.

To everyone else, thanks for jumping in on the craziness and making this little contest so much fun.

Winners will receive Premium Digital downloads of our award-winning short films Avarice and John Gray.

Without further ado, the winners of the 2013 Anime Blues Cosplay Photo Contest as picked by you:

Funniest Photo

Yikes! Funniest? Alrighty. I’m not sure what else to say here other than I wasn’t exactly laughing as this chased me through my nightmares last night, but hey, to each their own. Congrats, Shawn!

Most Helpful Monster

We wanted to make sure everyone got a chance to see their cosplay photo on Facebook, so here’s a big high-five shout-out to Deric for tagging the most cosplayers in our album. You rock, Deric!

That’s all for now folks. Timid Monster and our photo-booth will be back in the fall at Memphis Comic and Fantasy Convention with a comic book themed booth.
