Beat Down Boogie spent some time at the Kalahari Resort in Sandusky Ohio to capture the very best cosplay of Colossalcon 2015. There was so much, it took two videos to get it all. The location has a huge water park and arcades which made for some super fun moments.

Frozen Softball

Meet the “Freeze”, a t-ball team that’s adorably fierce and loves Frozen.

See the catcher? She’s the daughter of photographer Betsy Gregory who thought it would be fun to get the girls all dressed up as Elsa and take pictures of them making “tough faces”.

I love everything about this.

Everyone needs a good umbrella, and these Studio Ghibli-themed versions have the added benefit of changing patterns when they get wet.

The My Neighbor Totoro umbrella has an embroidered Totoro and, when it gets wet, a bunch of Totoros and clovers appear. Similarly, the Spirited Away umbrella features an embroidered No-Face. When it rains, a lot more No Faces are revealed along with Radish Spirits and Susuwatari images.

Both umbrellas have 28 spokes, have a matching cover and will retail in Japan for 3,500 yen or approx. $28 USD.
