Exerpts from the Masquerade at Anime Midwest 2011

With voice actors Ellen McLain and her husband, John Patrick Lowrie, it was no surprise that some of the cosplays during the masquerade included homages to GLaDOS and the Cake. The ladies singing a duet as GLaDOS and the Cake had the audience in the palm of their hand while the guys from Dragon Ball Z grossed them out in short order with the one cosplayer, Ian Stehmeier from Rolling Meadow, Illinois who used his expertise as a gymnast to amaze and disgust his friends on the stage as well as the audience as his body seemed at times to almost be falling into itself. In addition to disgusting people, Ian also is a Boy Scout and loves to play Rock Band.
