Friday was our busiest day (and most popular day). That's when ~ammnra
got dressed up as Tallus and I was as Tali. It was insane the amount of people who loved Tali with the mask off (had an odd few Talimancers too....). The running joke became, "I am the romance DLC everyone wanted." Our photos showed up on Tested and even made it to Buzzfeed's Top 28 Cosplaying Couples!
The best moment from the whole convention happened while I was dressed as Tali. Ammnra and I were getting stopped for photos nearly every 15 steps when we were Tallus and Tali. One of the people who stopped us was a family with three kids. The little girl of the bunch, barely two feet tall, came up and asked to hold my toy car (the Mako) for the picture. After her mom took a few photos, she handed back my Mako and asked in the most adorable voice, "Can I have a hug?" Of course I had to! I wish I had a picture capturing that moment! She told me how much I was her favorite and how she loved Tali'Zorah vas Normandy. When she was about to go, she waved goodbye and said, "Bye, Tali." My heart melted into a little puddle of goo. That right there is the reason I love cosplaying.
