Looks like #27 was removed.

#27 wouldn't load for me yesterday but I can see it today. I don't think it's that bad. Obviously the guy is having fun dressed up as Tingle from The Legend of Zelda series. Yes, I agree that SOME things shouldn't be seen, but everyone has the right to cosplay who they want regardless of gender or body type. If you can't stand the fat guy in the leotard then go to another area and find some eye candy cause those conventions do have plenty of it.

#7 are the Planeswlakers Liliana Vess and Jace Beleren from Magic: The Gathering.

...and # 27 is why I avoid them. Some things cannot be UNseen no matter how hard you try :)

Would be really nice if there could be a caption as to what/who some of these are supposed to be. Some are pretty obvious, others have me going 'I think it's from XXXXX'.. and a few either are some very nice originals, or from Anime/games that I just am not familiar with and pique my interest. But without a reference just has me going 'I wonder who/what that's from'.
