I hope everyone had a great Easter.  My family and I spent it at Awesome Con which is a fairly young convention out in Washington, D.C..  From what I hear, this was their second year and they really had a growth spurt thanks to backers on Kickstarter.com.  Their impressive guest list includes media guests Billie Piper (Dr. Who), Cary Elwes (The Princess Bride, Robin Hood: Men in Tights), Jewel Staite (Firefly, Serenity, Stargate Atlantis), as well as comic guests George Perez (Teen Titans), Steven Niles (30 Days of Night) just to name a few.

We only attended on Saturday but was quite impressed with what they offered and would recommend this convention if you're in the area next year.  Below are some pictures of the wonderful Cosplayers we came across with my favorite actually being the male Rogue that is pictured above.  Unfortunately, my picture of him from the front did not come out.  He did an interesting twist by putting white on his beard which you would normally see in Rogue's hair.
