Freeman Coliseum turned into one giant toy box on April 26 and 27 at the Alamo City Toy Show. All day Saturday, I scoured the showroom floor for the coolest, weirdest, oldest kinds toys the show had to offer. I found that, and then some.
Cosplayers were out in full force during the event. Among the pictures, I snagged images of Heisenberg from Breaking Bad, Black Widow from The Avengers and a gender-swapped Captain America.
I also found a unique brand of cosplay that used only body paint. Two brave cosplayers walked the showroom floor as Lion-O from Thundercats and Harley Quinn Batman with their costumes painted on their bodies, almost no clothes whatsoever.
