Though fairly new to the cosplay scene, Rebecca Lindsay has got a lot of people talking with her incredible Mystique cosplay at NYCC earlier on this month. Her imaginative take on the X-Men shapeshifter had bounced around between Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Imgur, Reddit and even international news sites before she left the convention. She got home to find her photo had gone viral and cosplay enthusiasts around the world knew her face.
We got in touch with Rebecca to find out more about her and to get to grips with what drives her creative gears. (more…)
Adam Savage loves Cosplay and it has become somewhat of a tradition for him to build a new Cosplay and try to walk the halls of the latest convention he is attending anonymously. He recently attended his first New York City Comic Con and brought his latest one day build Cosplay. Do you think you could have picked him out? (more…)
Half the fun of any comic con is the wide variety of cosplay you can see on a given day. Sure, there are a lot of regulars like Spider-Man, Deadpool, and the Joker, but the truly creative set themselves apart with elaborate recreations of anime or video game characters, variant costumes and mash-ups, even Mr. Sparkle. Yes, we did find a Mr. Sparkle at Fan Expo Canada. We even found a Banjo Tooie, the Belle of the Belles, and the Marvel Knights team-up of Daredevil and Black Panther. In the couples category, we encountered the Penguin and a Jedi, and the saddest looking married couple in Westeros (in season 2 anyway). Submitted for your enjoyment, here’s some of the great cosplay from the first two days of Fan Expo! (more…)
San Diego Comic Con. The biggest and best show for everything Comic, Film & Video related took place this passed weekend. With some amazing cosplayers attending too! Sneaky Zebra has put together a great music video showcasing some of the best cosplayers they came across at SDCC.
Zipping between the San Diego Convention Center and Petco Park, they’ve caught on camera some of the finest looking cosplay wandering the streets and halls of the convention. Another wonderful video that shows how wonderful a comic con weekend really is. (more…)
When Cosplayer June Rivas was called into her boss’s office and told her recent work attire and hair style had been “unprofessional” she decided to respond using her favorite hobby, Cosplay. In the picture above on the left you can see what she wore on a typical day, a simple off white pants suit and head scarf, seems pretty much the usual office wear one would expect a co-worker to wear wouldn’t you say? What Rivas decided to do after that day is perfectly Nerdy. (more…)
You’ve heard of a TED Talk, right? But what is that exactly? A TED Talk is a video created from a presentation at the main TED conference. TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues. Basically, smart people talking smartly about smarty things. With over 2,000 TED Talks from remarkable people, from tech, science, and technology would you have ever expected Mythbuster’s Adam Savage as a Key Speaker talking about his love for Cosplay? Well, he did, and it’s pretty remarkable. (more…)
Seemingly straight out of Orgrimmar, actress Jamie Lee Curtis arrived in Orc cosplay to last night’s premiere of Duncan Jones‘ fantasy flick Warcraft! Curtis schmoozed with cast members and fans of the film alike, posing for pictures and recording videos- including a pretty impressive nod to “Leroooooy Jenkins!” Her look came off a little more Malificent than Orc, maybe a brow piece or some big bottom teeth pieces would’ve been a bit more accurate. But this fangirl is no stranger to cosplay fun! (more…)
To wrap our cosplay tour of Toronto ComiCon, the image gallery below reflects a wide variety of styles, types and modifications to a great many beloved characters from TV, movies, comics, video games and anime. The level of imagination and sophistication when you see cosplayers at these shows continues to impress, and even at times when you don’t have so much of the latter, it’s more than made up for it in the former. From cardboard masks, to spandex suits, and from modified store-bought costumes to suits made entirely from scratch, all the cosplayers wandering the Metro Toronto ConventionCentre were ready-to-wear in the awesomest fashion to be seen until September at Fan Expo Canada! (more…)
Star Wars cosplay at cons is so ubiquitous it could, and should, be it’s own category. So we created one. Toronto ComiCon this past weekend was no exception for the inclusion of that parade of Star Wars costume love for both regular fans and the ever growing and swelling ranks of the local chapter of the 501st Legion, a staple of any Toronto area con. Of course this was the first Toronto con after the release of The Force Awakens, and the usual march of Stormtroopers, Jedi and Sith Lords was joined by many Kylo Rens, Reys, and even a few BB-8s. (Yes, you can cosplay BB-8. See below.) (more…)
When I arrived Friday night at Toronto ComiCon – Fan Expo Canada’s younger, smaller, and spring-set cousin – I had a question in the back of my head: How many Kylo Rens will there be, and how many Deadpools? Star Wars cosplay is a staple of any con, and so is Deadpool for that matter, but things have changed in the cold months between convention seasons, there are new Wars characters to dress up as, and Deadpool is now as well known as Iron Man and Captain America. And then I saw it! Everything you could want this, my first convention of the year, to be. As I was setting up my camera, walking towards me was Constable Deadpool of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. (more…)
