Posted  November 18, 2017  by  Rodney Brown

Even though the Dealer Room shut down at 7 p.m. on Saturday at Rhode Island Comic Con, there were still plenty of outstanding cosplayers wandering the halls, either checking out panels or waiting for the after-party. In this last gallery by me from Saturday are cosplayers Super Wolf Cosplay, Jax Adele, scuba_cosplay, ProxyLeaf Cosplays, White Fang Cosplay, The CosBae Dolls, Azura […]

Fourth Saturday RICC 2017 Cosplay Gallery by FirstPerson Shooter!

Posted  November 17, 2017  by  Rodney Brown

As the afternoon wore on Saturday at Rhode Island Comic Con the sky got darker and the crowds got a bit smaller. But there were plenty of cosplayers still about and I managed to get plenty of photos. Among the cosplayers in this gallery are blackdiamondcosplay, Prime Cosplay and Photography, AE Cosplay, deadlynightshadecosplay, SBG Cosplay, Crimson Knight Cosplay, LadyJ_Cosplay, Big Daddy Cosplay, GiveWave Studios, HappyAcorn Cosplay, Blue Electra […]

Third Saturday RICC 2017 Cosplay Gallery by FirstPerson Shooter!

Posted  November 16, 2017  by  Rodney Brown

Because Rhode Island Comic Con has always been held in November, the amount of time for available light is pretty short compared to many conventions. Luckily, since I was bouncing a flash off the back wall of the mezzanine area where I was holed up, all that changed was the amount of back lighting. In this third […]

Second Saturday RICC 2017 Cosplay Gallery by FirstPerson Shooter!

Posted  November 16, 2017  by  Rodney Brown

Despite the sub-freezing temperatures outside, Rhode Island Comic Con this year drew huge crowds again, which means plenty of photos of cosplayers. This is the second gallery out of five from Saturday alone, by me. And it looks like I will have four galleries from Sunday. Add to that a couple galleries each by Wonderllama Photography and Zephyrlynk […]

Posted  November 15, 2017  by  Rodney Brown

Our third photographer at Rhode Island Comic Con was Jake from State Farm Zephyrlynk Productions. He was roaming the halls Friday while Gregg of Wonderllama Photography did his best imitation of me by sitting in the mezzanine level comfy seating and letting people come to him. Jake captured images of cosplayers as they wandered the halls and the […]

Whedon Saves the DCEU With Justice league

Posted  November 15, 2017  by  Rodney Brown

The latest movie in the DC Warner Bros canon is better by an unmeasurable stretch than Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. It’s even better than Wonder Woman, the high-water mark for DC films in the new Extended Universe. Credit for the quality of Justice League as a superhero movie can be laid at the […]

The Orville’s Ninth Episode Just an Extended Rape Joke

Posted  November 13, 2017  by  Kels

(Ed. Note: The following opinion piece contains both a description of fictional non-consensual sexual acts, and spoilers for the ninth episode of The Orville, “Cupid’s Dagger.”) First, let me state that I absolutely adore The Orville starring Seth MacFarlane and Adrianne Palicki. The writing is on point (most of the time) and the cast is […]

First Saturday RICC 2017 Cosplay Gallery by FirstPerson Shooter!

Posted  November 13, 2017  by  Rodney Brown

As one of the fastest growing conventions to launch in the past few years, Rhode Island Comic Con continues to draw huge celebrity names, sell-out crowds … and organizational problems. On the one hand, charity groups like Zombie Leader and the 501st New England Garrison reported record donations this year. On the other, the Rhode Island Convention Center […]

Taken at the 15th annual Granite State Comicon, the gallery is a good representation of the locations in and around the Radisson Hotel and the Center of New Hampshire. […]

Posted  November 8, 2017  by  Byron D. Zero

Pixar has bestowed the world with its latest work; Coco, a story about the meaning of family, love, and identity. It’s always good to see a new Pixar production, so how does this one stand up? Coco tells the story of Miguel who despite his family’s generation-old ban on music, dreams of becoming an accomplished […]

Posted  November 5, 2017  by  Rodney Brown

I will have just two galleries from Sunday of the Fall 2017 Super Megafest, but they are loaded with creativity.

In this gallery are cosplayers Zebra_Cosplay, Mysty Riddler’s Piratanical Cosplays, Wolfryk Manwolf, Zombie Leader, T Wylie’s Misfit Toys, Impostor […]

Fall 2017 Super Megafest Cosplay Gallery, Saturday Part 3

Posted  November 3, 2017  by  Rodney Brown

One of the best parts of this Fall Super Megafest, or any one for that matter, is watching the celebrities just casually walking the show floor, going to panel rooms or just getting their own coffee. While I was sitting by the food stand, I saw Corbin Bernson buying coffee, John Wesley Shipp and Amanda Pays […]
