Emerald City Comicon 2012: Saturday & Sunday
Seattle’s Emerald City Comicon has drawn to a close for another year. All the major guests and numerous cosplayers came out to play on Saturday and Sunday, ensuring that this year’s event would go out with a bang. Over the final two days of ECCC 2012, I snapped over 500 photographs while touring the convention center. Here’s a quick look at some highlights from the show:
Spider Sense… tingling!
Cloak and Dagger as seen in their unfortunately brief stint with the X-Men.

Another cosplayer that brought a smile to my face was the most famous member of the Geth, Legion. I unfortunately forgot to ask him his opinion on Mass Effect 3!
