Marvel-ous Ladies of Marvel at DragonCon, Part 1


As we head into the cold, dark winter season, it’s the perfect time to bring a another reminder of summer, this time from DragonCon.

2016 was another amazing DragonCon experience. I shot some spectacular cosplays at the enormous Fallout shoot, met some talented photographers, and connected with old friends and new from around the country.

The highlight, though, was the chance to shoot a group of amazing women cosplaying their favorite female Marvel heroes and villains.

What’s so special about that, you ask? Two words: Haute Couture.

In lieu of the traditional cape and spandex, everyone was in stunning Marvel-ized evening wear. They each brought a unique version of their character, including She-Hulk, Lady Loki and Lady Thor, Emma Frost, Phoenix and more.  It was a delightful night working with fun, vivacious cosplayers.

Organized by the talented Galacticat Cosplay, I spent a much-too-brief 90 minutes shooting the entire group, individual cosplayers, and some small groups. It was an extremely entertaining experience full of funny people, gorgeous cosplays, and a grand piano.  

Thanks to Nerd Caliber contributor Gogo Incognito for getting us involved with the group shoot. She’s a true pro and always a delight to work with.  

The first gallery one (of three) features our hosts: Galacticat Cosplay as She-Hulk; Gogo Incognito as Lady Loki; and Crazy Callisto as Lady Thor. Coming up in the next galleries: Wolverine, Emma Frost, Psylocke, Misty Knight, and more.
