Comic Con 2017 - Part 3 - Cosplay

When one dresses up as a character at Comic Con, you are
not wearing a costume - you are cosplaying! Cosplaying at conventions around the world is a major big deal. There have even been TV programs such as, HEROES OF COSPLAY, COSPLAY MELEE, and CALL TO COSPLAY that celebrate the art of becoming your favorite pop culture character. 

I talked to one cosplayer whose costume was so elaborate it had to be brought in several suitcases and constructed in their hotel room before making an appearance at Comic Con. The dedication and artistry of the cosplayers knocks my socks off. Since sharing is caring, here are some examples from this years Con.

The "wall" from Stranger Things

Robin and Wonder Woman - 
who'd a thunk it!


Moana


Cyberman








And look how this family transformed a wheel chair for their sweet little kiddo - 



Cosplay? Are you in or out? Who would you be?

  1. Those are impressive. If I were that last kid, I'd use that wheel chair outfit all the time.

  2. You are an absolute goober, which is why I love you so much! I can't tell if the yellow-haired guy is Trump or Conan O'Brien!
