A Cast of Colorful Characters 

The first-ever Indiana Comic Convention is underway in downtown Indianapolis. Walking amongst the college basketball fans and St. Paddy's day celebrants yesterday were some standout cosplayers. Wearing their love of a favorite character very literally on their sleeve (and rest of their body), cosplayers are one of the most obvious signs that a Con is in town. Even if you don't own any comic books, everyone can appreciate the dedication that goes into those amazing threads.

If you missed the costume contest yesterday, fear not. We were in attendance, and we're bringing you the best of the best, from Deadpool to Sailor Moon, Shredder to the world's cutest Jawa. (We tried to get all the names of the characters and the cosplayers behind the masks right, but if we're wrong let us know in the comments below!)
