What we thought would be a goofy cosplay sideshow at Anime Blues Con has blown up to be a massive ball-o-awesome. Over 9,000 people browsed the photo gallery, leaving more likes and comments than can be counted. To the cosplayers, THANK YOU for letting us take your picture, you all looked amazing. 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:

Best Photo & Best Cosplay

Domi as Yoko Littner from Gurren Lagam

Cosplayer Domi is quite industrious! With a little help from a LOT of friends, she managed to completely sweep the Best Cosplay category and edge out contenders in the Best Photo category. Congrats, Domi!

Runner Up

Allura as Harley Quinn from Batman

Allura was oh-so-close to snatching the Best Photo prize from Domi. Her spot-on portrayal of Quinn claimed almost 80 likes.

Funniest Photo

Shawn as a terrifying clown that haunts your nightmares

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. In the mean time, check out one of our films, read a blog post, or check out the rest of the pics in the 2013 Anime Blues Cosplay Photo Contest.
