20 Amazing Minecraft Costumes at MineCon 2011

MineCon 2011 (held at the Mandalay Bay in Vegas) was in a word, awesome. The crowd was overwhelmingly young, the vibe was fun and nerdy, and best of all, the costumes were inspired. Below are my favorites, which unfortunately aren't of the best quality (lighting was low and super yellow, which wasn't helped much by my standard point-and-shoot). If you happened to attend Minecon as well, post about your experience to the community corkboard... if you're pictured below, please comment!

1. Minecraft Wolf-Girl

This coquettish Minecraft wolf-girl roped in first prize at the MineCon costume contest. The booty: lunch with Notch himself!

My friend made a full body creeper, but cut all of the pixels out of colored construction paper, and it looked awesome.

green and black? or different colors?

Like the RC one, except with a person in it.

I may have seen that...

A lot of great costumes, my favorite would have to be father/son blazer duo. By the by, I recognize the pixelated tie, its available for purchase on thinkgeek.com

Its actually on sale right now!

Those are some really great costumes! I love the iron man one! I wonder what kind of light he used. I would have trouble finding the best quality lighting for a costume like that. It turned out great though!

For Simplicity it's probably one of those push lights. Or its hand made. not to hard these days with really cheep led flashlights to convert something. Look up Iron Man Arc reactor on instructables..... Actually Instructables made a list of the top ones...Here is the link. http://www.instructables.com/id/Best-Iron-Man-Arc-Reactors/

Omg these are awesome! OzComicCon is this weekend and I'm making a costume consisting of legs, arms and head but my body will be my body. I'm going to go to eb games and get a sword and/or pickaxe to carry. My costume is to scale and will be 1 minecraft square on a skin is equal to 1 6cm square on the costume. The coolest part is, it will be a minecraft mirror of what I am wearing underneath! If anyone is going to OzComicCon Melbourne this weekend, hi!
