first report from the 2017 Lucca Comics & Games festival, the event attracts tons of cosplayers, many of whom circle the pedestrian walkway around the center of town posing for shot after shot by other fairgoers. The level of effort and realism varies widely from model to model, but I'm impressed and appreciative of all of them as I'm unlikely to ever attempt such an effort myself.
Here's a sampling of the cosplayers I saw during the festival, with many more pics not making the cut (like the Ghost Rider who had a great flame collar but was too small in my pics) and still more people not photographed at all, such as the one hundred Harley Quinns and fifty Jokers pacing the walkway. I'll follow this fun post with one centered on games at the show to wrap up my coverage of Lucca 2017.•••Fantastic work, but what do you do when you need to use the bathroom?!Fancy steampunk couple with bonus Roger Smith(?) on rightCarl and Ellie Fredricksen with bonus Sandy Olsson on rightMelisandre and Robb Stark(?)A trash can with dreams of being a DalekNot sure how mobile this set-up wasSaw several camo guys; probably missed seeing many moreShe looked giddy to pose with this guy"Hey, how you doin'?""Let's-a go!"Professional(?)
