DragonCon Cosplay

Think the previous cosplay shot I posted earlier today was impressive? Then check this out!

This photo is truly staggering, the sheer amount of imagination and devotion (and, well, nerdiness) on display. Aquaman's a little hard to see, so I did a detail so you could make him out.

Speaking of making out, when I was a teen, going to comic cons, there were no women in sight. Admittedly, I tended to go small shows, not the big New York or San Diego cons, but I couldn't help but feel that, if I was going to keep going to comic cons, I had to accept they would be girl-free zones.

But look at this photo--look how many adorable women (and I mean that in several ways) there are in this photo. You've got a couple of Wonder Women, a couple of Batgirls, Catwoman, Black Canary, Starfire, even Fire and Ice! It retroactively makes the fifteen-year-old me a little misty-eyed.

Today's young comic fans: you don't know how good you have it.

That is super-cool!!! And you are right, young fans, of any genre really, don't know how good they have it these days.
