One fine day I will make the journey across this nation to attend the Leipzig Book Fair. This year’s excuse for missing it? I would be traveling to DortCon, a German SFF convention in Dortmund, a week afterwards. Except then my Beard got sick and I got sick and shit got chaotic, and I didn’t attend either. Poop. Patrick Rothfuss was even there, and according to fellow expat geek Oh God, My Wife Is German, it was pretty sweet.
So it isn’t just you who will be living vicariously through these gorgeous cosplay photographs from the event. I promise you, myself, the devil, that next year will be the year I finally attend damn it. Until then, feast your eyes on some of these beautifully photographed costumes, thanks to the Leipzig Book Fair Press site (click on the images twice to enlarge). Or find out more about the event here.
