The Baltimore Comic Con descended on Charm City this past weekend bringing out a bevy of cosplayers and comic book fans. Some of my personal favorites from this group include Hawkgirl with her amazing (and one imagines, hard to walk around with) wings, the Flash/Zatanna pair, Loki and this fun picture of a fan in a TARDIS dress with a cowboy hat fending off a weeping angel. I also want to give a shout-out to possibly the first, only and best Whistler cosplay that I’ll ever see. That dude rocks.

We’ll likely have a little more about BCC in the coming days as we try to bring you some info about some of the craftiest vendors at the convention, but until then, enjoy this cosplay gallery and our recap of the convention. (more…)

This year’s Dragon Con went by in a flash, it felt like we’d just checked in and suddenly after an avalanche of Cosplay, cocktails, and cavorting the whole thing was over and we were packing up the car to return to reality. There was so much great Cosplay this year, but that’s to be expected at Dragon Con. We’ve got a gallery of what we saw this year along with the official Dragon Con TV coverage of the Parade on Saturday morning.

Let’s start with a look at what one would have seen if you just wandered the halls of the host hotels. These 400 plus pictures are just a sample, it’s almost too much for the senses to take in. If it was nerdy, geeky, and had a fandom, it was represented in cosplay at some point in the convention. One of my quirky favorites was the Chicken Lady from The Kids in the Hall. She had us in stitches as she squawked and tried to pick up the guys walking by. (more…)

FAN EXPO – Images from Day 1: Cosplay, LEGO, and Gaming

Whenever Nerd Bastards goes to a con, we don’t just like to highlight the celebrity guests, news items and other things. No! We also like to put the camera on you, the fans. Those of you in costume anyway. So many fans get into an incredible amount of detail with their costumes, fret over the smallest detail and make sacrifices of comfort and mobility, so it’s only right that as we celebrate the culture, we also celebrate those that make the culture possible with their mad nerdiness. On this Thursday of Fan Expo 2014, we found judges, super-people, brains, robots, and something that looks suspiciously like something out of Will Graham’s nightmares. Also, some very impress LEGO sculptures were on display. All that, and MOAR, in this first photo gallery from Toronto’s National Fan Expo! (more…)

It’s become a sad coda to some of the major conventions, news after the fact that some of the behavior of fans at said convention was inappropriate. It’s happened once again at this past weekend’s San Diego Comic Con, but this time, a group of cosplayers is looking to convince SDCC organizers to do something a little more proactive about the problem.
