At Otakon 2014, we took a few moments to talk to cosplayer Ely Renae about her awesome genderbent Ganondorf cosplay from the popular Legend of Zelda series. If you want to see more of her cosplays, you can find them on her Facebook page here! Interview conducted by Lauren Grant. Photos and video by Adam Etheridge.
Saturday at Otakon this year our photographer Adam Etheridge nabbed a whole passel of pictures of great cosplays, including a number of outstanding groups. He even managed to sneak in a shot of the ice cold water guy! Among the many cosplayers Adam got photos of is Maki Roll, in her amazing Ryuko in Senketsu armor […]

Sunday at Boston Comic Con might have had as many cosplayers on site as Saturday did, but most of them seemed to be headed right to the Cosplay Contest pre-judging, so the number of random floor shots is smaller. But still there was an impressive display of cosplayers and costumes wandering the show floor. Among the […]
Cyborg and Beast Boy drag Raven all over Boston Comic Con 2014. Can even Raven save them from their mischief? Or will the eternally grumpy Raven leave them to their fates? Filmed at the Boston Comic Con 2014 Beast Boy is Brian W. Raven is Tatiana A. Cyborg is Kurt B.
Despite an initial problem that frustrated many attendees looking to do an early pickup of their badges, Otakon 2014 was by all accounts a success, and as usual featured many outstanding cosplayers and costumes. We had Adam Etheridge on the scene at the Baltimore Convention Center, and he supplied us with these excellent images.
For a second year in a row, Boston Comic Con was held at the Seaport World Trade Center in South Boston. While I have no official numbers yet, it seemed clear that the con set a record, not only for total attendance (after all, it was three days long for the first time) but likely also for single day […]
If you are going to do a gijinka (humanized or anthropomorphic for those not up on Japanese cosplay terms) version of Ampharos from Pokemon, doing it in the style of the movie Burlesque is a great choice. That is what Jess from Jaycee Cosplay did at ConnectiCon in July, and our photo editor, Kiera from […]
At Otakon 2014, we interviewed many cosplayers about this question: “What is something you should never say to a cosplayer?” The answers are as varied and interesting as the cosplayers themselves, but one general trend seems to emerge throughout — don’t say something judgmental. Check out the answers in the video below, from the funny (the […]
In late June, the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City on Long Island played host to Eternal Con, a two-day convention for comic book enthusiasts and pop culture fans alike.

Couldn’t get enough cosplay goodness from the Saturday gallery of photos from this year’s ConnectiCon? Then you are in luck, because here we have the Sunday photos. While the number is less than half that of Saturday’s gallery, the quality is still top notch.
The Internet is blowing up over the phenomenally accurate cosplayer Real Life Peter Griffin, who was doing standup to fill time during the judges’ deliberations at the most recent Great Allentown Comic Con. But we were lucky enough to have our own Unemployed Skeletor interview him at New York Comic Con last fall. Watch as […]
The old guard convention in Hartford, Conn., is ConnectiCon, an anime-heavy general nerd interest convention held at the Connecticut Convention Center, right on the edge of the Connecticut River. While ConnectiCon is experiencing the pains of being a convention more than a decade old, it still manages to draw some of the most talented cosplayers in […]
OK, I know it is the anniversary of the start of the American Revolution, not the actual birth of the country, but who lets facts get in the way of celebrating? Not us ‘Mericans! Below is a gallery of some of my favorite shots of cosplayers celebrating the red, white and blue. Not all are […]
Double Stomp Productions was at HeroesCon and sent us these wonderful photos of some of the great cosplayers that were there this year.

At the most recent ColossalCon, our photographer KBV Photography and Cosplay was there to capture images of these One Piece mermaid cosplayers. There are two Caimie cosplayer, Barracuda Cosplay and […]
Shingeki no Kyojin. SnK. Even the awful English translation “Attack on Titan” (seriously, I avoided this anime for the first couple of weeks thinking it was a super-cheesy science fiction story). Whatever you call it, there can be no question that it is incredibly popular. At AnimeNEXT 2014, we ask Attack On Titan cosplayers about […]
Way back last October, photographer John Shek took these scary pictures at London Film and Comic Con. Appropriately spooky Chucky is Nethicite Cosplay. We hope you enjoy the pictures, and it starts you thinking about this Halloween.

In addition to cosplayers like Kayla Ann Cosplay, Negative Stacey, Inochii/Nerdy Lolita and our very own Spectra Marvelous, Adam shot quite a few groups, showing off not only their cosplays but their organizational skills. […]
While most opinions are that New York City Comic Con’s “Special Edition New York City,” held two weekends ago in Manhattan, was a little underwhelming from both a content standpoint and in the number of cosplayers that attended, there was still enough for Adam Etheridge to produce a solid gallery of more than 100 images. Among […]

New York City Comic Con’s “Special Edition New York City” event was held last weekend and by most reports, it was a good time. Except for a writer for the site Bleeding Cool, who describes in well-crafted detail her humiliation at the hands of the staff of SENYC. Her crime? Allegedly, being too revealing, but the […]
We interview Scarlet Stepford about her awesome Poison Ivy cosplay at AnimeNEXT 2014. Photos by Cantera Cosplay and Alex Valderana Photography. Interview by Alex Valderana.

While the crowds coming to TerrorCon on Sunday might have been even bigger than Saturday, there were fewer cosplayers or costumers. With no costume contest that day, most of the crowd seemed to be interested in meeting wrestler Kane, and while some showed up wearing his trademark red mask, it wasn’t quite cosplay. But that […]
We interviewed Leeleethebunny Cosplay about her awesome Angelus cosplay at the inaugural Hartford Comic Con 2014. Angelus is a character from the larger Spawn universe, created by Todd McFarlane. Our resident Whovian, Mike Carroll, was the lucky one to get to do the interview. Below check out our video interview with her and then some photos of her Angelus cosplay taken […]
The people behind the incredibly successful Rhode Island Comic Con held their first summer convention at the Rhode Island Convention Center last weekend, TerrorCon.

Our latest video interview from Hartford Comic Con 2014 is with BelleChere, cosplaying as Hel, the Asgardian queen of the underworld and a nemesis to Marvel’s The Mighty Thor. BelleChere, as one of the most well-known cosplayers in the world, needs no introduction as she is renowned for her incredibly challenging and detailed costumes. But she was part of […]
There is a new comic book convention in New England, and it made a grand entrance onto the convention scene this past weekend.

A new convention tried to establish itself over this past weekend in Massachusetts. While most estimates were that the overall attendance at Pop Culture Expo in Wilmington, Mass., was quite significantly below what the promoters were hoping for, the number and quality of cosplayers was pleasantly surprising. I was lucky enough to be asked to be […]
While I was at the New Hampshire Renaissance Faire last weekend, I was thrilled to run into my friend and model Scarlet Renarde, who was working for not one, but two vendors! The good folks at both Aetas Designs and Lost Art Chains were kind enough to allow me to haul Scarlet around the faire […]
Over the middle two weekends in May, the New Hampshire Renaissance Faire brought fans of all things medieval to the woods of Kingston, N.H. Well, to be accurate, all kinds of historical periods were covered, from the High Middle ages of the War of the Roses period, exemplified by the armored combat demonstration group from Maine, […]
The fun from PAX East 2014 continues in this new gallery of cosplayers shot by our own KBV Photography at the biggest gaming convention on the East Coast. So return with us to halls of the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.
There was no chance any mechas were going to invade Zenkaikon late last month, with Yoko Littner on the job. Yoko is actually Ichigei Cosplay, and the photos were taken by our own KBV Photography at Zenkaikon’s home base of the Lancaster County Convention Center in Lancaster, Penn. Below check out the fantastic photos of […]
