Here we have the second half of the shots of cosplayers from this past weekend’s Super MegaFest, held at the Sheraton in Framingham, Mass. Among the awesome cosplayers in this group of shots are well-known ones such as Gina B Cosplay, BelleChere, HaruVamp, and Leeleethebunny Cosplay and Mhysa Cosplay as the DeeDee Twins. Once again, with more […]
Super MegaFest is a comics and pop culture convention held in Framingham, Mass., at the Sheraton hotel. While it is not among the largest of conventions, it strains the capacity of the hotel and its convention facilities to the limit, as Super MegaFest often draws some of the biggest names in the business. That means […]
Our boneheaded interviewer Unemployed Skeletor interviews Alana Leilani at New York Comic Con 2014 about her amazing Lady Rainicorn cosplay from the hit cartoon Adventure Time. In addition to talking about her costume, Alana and Skeletor discuss how to improve the Javits Center. After the video, check out the photos below taken by Cantera Image.
Our Joker cosplayer, the Clown Prince of Cosplay, interviews Red Sonja writer Gail Simone about the character and, of course, the Joker, at New York Comic Con 2014. Simone is also known as the long-time writer of Batgirl, and new returning writer of the soon to be relaunched Secret Six. She also started the entire movement […]
On the second day of Rhode Island Comic Con I didn’t have my studio setup, so I was lucky enough to spend most of the day with The Batsy Twins at their classic 1966 Batcycle display, grabbing cosplayers as they walked by. This gallery is bigger than either of the two from Saturday by a couple dozen […]
As I said yesterday in Part 1, at Rhode Island Comic Con I was allowed to once again set up a portable studio to shoot photos of the cosplayers being judged for the Cosplay Contest, and any others I could grab and haul in to the room. As was the case the last time I did this, at Granite […]
At Rhode Island Comic Con I was allowed to once again set up a portable studio to shoot photos of the cosplayers being judged for the Cosplay Contest, and any others I could grab and haul in to the room. As was the case the last time I did this, at Granite State Comic Con in […]
Our man on the mic with the see-through skin, Unemployed Skeletor, interviews cosplayer and model Sarah Skittles at New York Comic Con 2014, while she cosplays as Supergirl, in a version inspired by the design of Superman’s outfit in the movie Man of Steel. After the video, check out the photos by Cantera Cosplay.
If you are like me, after seeing the Avengers 2: Age of Ultron trailers, you can’t wait for this film to come out, and one of the many reasons is the battle between the Hulk and Iron Man in the Hulkbuster armor (teased at the end of Iron Man 3 when all of the suits […]
Whatever else might have gone wrong at Rhode Island Comic Con this year, the cosplay contest was an unqualified hit. Featuring a large number of astounding cosplayers, a huge audience, and the MC with the most mouth, Boston’s Deadpool, the cosplay contest went off without much of a hitch (not counting some truly outstanding cosplayers […]
Another Anime Convention (generally called AAC) was held in mid-October in Manchester, NH, and while anime cosplay was not the only thing to be found, it dominated. For every fem Shepard or Harley Quinn there was a handful of Mikasas — or even more Corporal Levis. The number of shots combined over the two days doesn’t quite […]
It is just a few days before All Hallow’s Eve, and in keeping with the spooky spirit, your editor in chief thought “What would make a good scary photo shoot? Vampirella would! Scary sexy!” (Yes, that is sadly a fairly accurate representation of my typical thought process.) Luckily, the talented cosplayer Panda Luna Valentine, from […]
Our Joker cosplayer, the Crown Prince of Cosplay, interviewed AZ Powergirl, aka Cara Nicole at New York Comic Con 2014. They talked about the struggles of being gorgeous, costume making and then he challenged her to an epic thumb war! Below the video, check out the photos by Cantera Image.
Check out Cantera Image‘s cosplay gallery from his time at the New York Comic Con 2014. There are more than 100 images in the gallery, so give it time to load, and enjoy! After you have looked over these pictures, check out Adam Etheridge‘s Friday gallery, Saturday gallery and Sunday gallery, and then the Friday gallery, Saturday, Part 1 and Part 2 and Sunday galleries from […]
Our Joker cosplayer, the Crown Prince of Cosplay, continues his harassment … er, interviews of cosplayers at New York Comic Con 2014. The latest is Gillykins, who talks about her killer Catwoman cosplay, NYCC versus San Diego Comic Con, and her favorite Batman: The Animated Series characters. Once you’ve watched the video, check out the photos of Gillykins taken […]
Yaya Han has a new comic book and our Joker, the Crown Prince of Cosplay, was there at New York Comic Con to talk to her about the first issue as well as her newest Assassin’s Creed cosplay! Check out her comic book at the Lion Forge Comics website. After the video, check out the photos […]
Sunday at New York Comic Con our man Adam Etheridge captured plenty of images of the amazing cosplayers who still dressed up on the last day of the con. Among the known cosplayers in this gallery are Nadyasonika, Stella Chuu, Vera Baby, Lindsay Elyse and Vampy Bit Me. After you have looked over these pictures, check out Adam’s Friday gallery and Saturday gallery, and then the Friday gallery, Saturday, Part 1 and Part 2 and Sunday galleries […]
The Clown Prince of Cosplay, our very own Joker cosplayer, challenges Mexican cosplay star Nadyasonika to a contest at New York Comic Con 2014. Who will win? And what violent sport does Nadyasonika reveal was in her past? After the video, check out the photos of Nadyasonika by Adam Etheridge.
Saturday, between us having him do other projects and his own shoots, Adam Etheridge took fewer shots at New York Comic Con than he did on Friday. But still he brought us a gallery of 40+ pictures, featuring cosplayers such as Yaya Han, Nadyasonika, Stella Chuu, Envy Us Deviant, Vera Baby, Soni Aralynn, Micro Kitty Cosplay, and Cara Nicole. After you […]
We start our second set of galleries from the recent New York Comic Con (officially now the country’s largest, having surpassed the attendance of San Diego Comic Con by about 20,000) with the photos taken on Friday by Adam Etheridge. Among the nearly 100 cosplayers in Adam’s first NYCC gallery are Zombie Bit Me, Vera Baby, Stella […]
Our Joker cosplayer interviews Stella Chuu about her awesome cosplay of Nisha the Lawbringer from Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel at New York Comic Con 2014. Stella talks about her love of the Borderlands games, how she made the costume in a very short amount of time, and how much she enjoys NYCC, in no small part […]
Sunday at New York Comic Con 2014 was nearly as busy as Saturday and seemingly more crowded than Friday. Among the cosplayers in this gallery are Micro Kitty Cosplay as Clara Oswald, Stella Chuu and Olivia Chiu as the Jawbreakers from the new Batgirl series, Miss Gidget as evil Ryu, and Liana Richardson Cosplay as armored Ariel. Also in […]
The second Saturday gallery from New York Comic Con 2014 has both some well known cosplayers and some of my personal favorites of the weekend. Among the cosplayers are KO Cosplay and Byndo Gehk as half-sisters Scarlet Witch and Polaris, Bindi Smalls as the ever-popular Cammy White, and Bethany Maddock as the new Batgirl, designed by Cameron Stewart and Bethany’s […]
Saturday at New York Comic Con was every bit as busy and crowded as expected, and that means that, even with interviews and panels in between, I still managed to shoot more than 180 images. So I have to break the shots into two galleries from Saturday, and here are the first 90+ pictures for you to enjoy.
While DragonCon in Atlanta is probably the East Coast’s premier cosplay convention, New York Comic Con has to be pretty close in terms of numbers when you consider how much larger the overall attendance is (officially DragonCon was 62,000 this year and NYCC was approximately 140,000 last year). We are lucky to have five talented photographers […]
We sent photographer Adam Etheridge to Retro Con 2014, held in Oaks, Penn., the last weekend in September. He sent us back this cosplay gallery with nearly 100 images of some incredible cosplays. Notable cosplayers include Echo Endless, Real life Peter Griffin, Eric “The Smoke” Moran, and Nerd Caliber’s own Kevin Conn as Unemployed Skeletor. Also pictured are […]
I know that I promised that the second part of the cosplay shots from AWA would be posted on Wednesday, but other content came in that was time sensitive. So, without further delay, here are the rest of the Anime Weekend Atlanta photos from Bentpic5. You can see the first gallery from AWA 2014 here.
Last weekend was the four-day event Anime Weekend Atlanta, more commonly know as AWA. Our man in Georgia, Bentpic5, attended and sent us enough photos of amazing cosplayers that we have to split them up into two galleries. Part 2 will run tomorrow, but in the meantime enjoy these 75+ images of the talented cosplayers […]
In Southeastern Massachusetts there is one of the longest-running free-standing renaissance faires in the Northeast, King Richard’s Faire. Running from beginning of September through Columbus Day weekend each year, this year it held the second annual Game of Thrones Cosplay Contest and Trivia Contest on Saturday, Sept. 27. The two challenges are sponsored by and […]
At this year’s DragonCon, a handful of amazingly talented cosplayers got together as various characters from the quite racy action anime Queen’s Blade. The costumes were daring, but also spot on accurate and well crafted. I was lucky enough to glom on to the shoot (thanks Benn Robbins!) The lineup was: Abby Dark-Star as Claudette, […]
There were fewer cosplayers on Sunday at Granite State Comic Con than on Saturday, but it was the day of the Children’s Costume Contest, so here we have some great youngsters in awesome costumes. And weird moment of the day — Chewbacca and Princess Leia were not cosplaying together, then just both happened to walk into the […]
Sorry for the long delay since posting the first half of Saturday’s cosplay gallery from the recent Granite State Comic Con held in Manchester, NH. But I had to make a sudden relocation to a hotel after repairs to my bathroom plumbing (not done by me, to be clear) resulted in broken pipes and a need for […]
At Granite State Comic Con, while we had the amazing Nate Buchman roaming the halls taking cosplay photos, I was lucky enough to be given space in the Costume Contest pre-judging room to set up a mini portable studio. While I love doing hall shots myself, having complete control over the lighting is a big boon […]
We followed wonderful Harley Quinn cosplayer Harley Bean around Granite State Comic Con on Saturday, and captured her shenanigans on video! Check it out, and then enjoy the awesome pictures taken by Nate Buchman on Sunday. (OK, full disclosure, I missed posting his Sunday shots in the previous post of Nate’s great cosplay pics, which you can see […]
This year we were incredibly lucky to have Nate Buchman do hall cosplay shots for us at Granite State Comic Con, while FirstPerson Shooter was set up in a room with a portable studio. Nate moves back and forth between the worlds of cosplay, fashion and theater photography, and his shots show it. Held as […]
I admit I have been lax about getting my photos from the 2014 Boston Comic Con Costume Contest posted (mainly due to lighting and color problems) but those same problems (and sound issues on top of it) didn’t stop Emmanuel from creating a 10+ minute video of the amazing cosplayers that entered. Check out the […]
It’s our man with the makeup, the Joker, also known as the The Clown Prince of Cosplay, and he’s running amok with the cosplayers of Gen Con 2014. Will he succeed in bringing the yuks, or just the yucks?
Sunday at DragonCon, I shot as many pics as I did Saturday, maybe even more, but a lot of them will be in a couple of later galleries devoted to specific subject matter shoots. So the general hall shots didn’t add up to enough to split into two galleries, but there are still more than […]
In this video, our boneheaded man on the scene, Unemployed Skeletor, takes on all the cosplayers of the Boston Comic Con 2014.
The Saturday craziness continues from DragonCon 2014, with the second cosplay gallery from me, FirstPerson Shooter. I am not sure you can see the detail in the cog armor made and worn by the disabled veteran in the picture with Mark Hyrullian Cosplay as Thor, but it is amazing, and he even designed his own […]
Saturday was the craziest day at DragonCon 2014 and I have nearly 200 images from that day alone. So here is Part 1 of that gigantic pile of pics, with Part 2 coming tomorrow. Check out the amazing Thor by Mark Hyrullian Cosplay and Lady Sif by Kayla Ann Cosplay. And fans of both the Ghostbusters and […]
I didn’t do as good a job of dividing Friday’s pics up as evenly as I thought, so here is a nice short gallery of the rest of Friday at DragonCon 2014. Once you have a look through these shots, check out Bentpic5‘s galleries from Thursday and Friday, as well as Saturday and Sunday, and also […]
Tired of all the DragonCon posts? Here is something from a few weeks ago that is a refreshing and fun break that will make you smile. Congratulations to Nick and Carolyn who are here in the video cosplaying Catwoman and Riddler. At Gen Con 2014, I was invited by The Clown Prince of Cosplay and Nick to […]
Sunday saw no slowdown in the waves of people swarming over the host hotels at DragonCon. Many of the large group cosplay shoots happened on Sunday, and Bentpic5 was lucky enough to get some shots at the bathing suit cosplay group photo shoot held at the pool at the Sheraton as well as all over […]
By Saturday evening at DragonCon, the atrium level of the central hotel, the Marriott, was quite literally wall to wall people partying. While that made it more difficult to get pictures of the increasingly creative and often bizarre cosplays, it also meant there were a lot more of them. To get a real sense of what […]
The sheer amount of crazy good cosplayers walking around the four hotels of DragonCon on Friday makes it necessary to divide the gallery of shots I took into two parts, just to keep down the load time for you all. Among the cosplayers in this gallery are Gina B Cosplay, Miggy Jagger, Lindsey the Pirate and […]
OK, it is weird talking about myself in the third person, but what can you do? Here is the gallery of cosplay pictures FirstPerson Shooter (me) took Thursday evening at DragonCon 2014. In case it looks like an abundance of bunnies and underwear, Thursday night at the Pulse Loft bar in the Marriott was a lingerie/pajama […]
Friday at DragonCon 2014 was even more crowded than anticipated, easily outdoing the number of people squeezed into the atrium level of the Marriott than managed to squeeze in last year. That didn’t stop Bentpic5 from shooting there, or all over the four con hotels, on Friday. Check out his great photos of amazing cosplayers […]
