"Speaking of Wil Wheaton, he debuted his signature Comiccon beer HefeWheaton, brewed by Clocktower Brew and Pub. Available exclusively at Ottawa Comiccon, the beer was a huge hit with fans." - Source:  www.ottawacomiccon.com

To borrow a line from Anchorman's Ron Burgundy, "I don't know how to put this, but [Ottawa Comiccon] is kind of a big deal." For this, the fourth edition of ComicCon in Ottawa, nearly 40,000 fans attended, a record number for the event.

Attendees had the chance to mingle with Daleks from Doctor Who, schmooze with Jedis from the Star Wars universe and meet and greet some of their favourite stars, including those we mentioned at the beginning of this article, as well as countless others.

The event was so high-profile it even attracted Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson, and Liberal Party Leader Justin Trudeau, who spent time at the event and even mingled with other attendees.

As per usual, there were countless booths available selling everything from delectable baked goods, geeky jewelry and merchandise, crafts and collectables, artwork, and more!

We have covered these booths extensively in our previous articles on ComicCon, Pop Expo, Geek Market, and other Ottawa Cons/Events, so in this article we will not cover them as much. With limited resources we can only cover so much in a weekend.

The Ottawa Public Library had a booth showing off the new implementation of 3D MakerBot Printers at select Ottawa Library locations, where Library Cardholders can come in and 3D Print anything they wish (printing fees apply). - www.facebook.com/BiblioOttawaLibrary

Popular WoW Webcomic LFG was also present! - http://www.lfg.co/

 

There were THOUSANDS of attendees in Cosplay this year. Over the course of the weekend, we were able to photograph over 250 of them.

After editing, Processing, and keeping only the best photos we took, we still have over 150 photos to present to you, (which is rather difficult to do in a webpage that you want to actually be able to have load for you, and not have to divide it into 10 pages the user has to click through).

So, we have published all 157 Photos to Flikr where you can browse them easily on all devices without loading or resizing issues. The Gallery contains both our High Quality Professional Shots, and the less than ideal (but still great Cosplays) photos.

However, we will still publish many of our photos to our Facebook Page, Google+ Page, and Twitter, as well as including them below once they are posted.

We would like to properly credit all the Cosplayers we photographed! If you see yourself, a friend, or someone you recognize, please use the Cosplay Identification Form (Below) to help us properly label the photos and credit the Cosplayers.
