New York Comic Con 2017 – Saturday Gallery by Wonderllama Photo

Posted  October 21, 2017  by  Gregg "Wonderllama" Snider

Saturday at New York Comic Con is something to behold.  The cosplays are next-level, the crowds are enormous, and the energy is tangible.  While I spent most of the day shooting video, I was able to do a few quick photo shoots with Tiffany Rae Knight; Cosplay Dad; MicroMerc Digital; Gogo Incognito; Emarie Jay; Drew […]

Posted  October 20, 2017  by  Rodney Brown

New York Comic Con 2017 FPS Gallery, Saturday Part 3

Posted  October 19, 2017  by  Rodney Brown

Gallery three of four from Saturday at New York Comic Con 2017 includes one of the most bizarre cosplays — if it can be called that — I saw at the con. Schick had someone dressed up as the humanoid mech-like razor they called Hydrobot from the company’s commercials. While it is common to see official cosplays […]

Posted  September 18, 2017  by  Rodney Brown

Continuing with the second of two Friday galleries from Adam Etheridge at ColossalCon East, we find him ensconced in the enormous indoor water park for the first part. He then branches out into other areas of the resort, mainly the hotel lobby, where the rock wall and fountain photos were taken. Cosplayers in this gallery include MollyVay […]

ColossalCon East 2017 Gallery by Adam Etheridge, Friday Part 1

Posted  September 16, 2017  by  Rodney Brown

Our Pennsylvania-based stalwart Adam Etheridge was also at ColossalCon East, and where I was spending most of the time at the Kalahari in the resort, Adam spent the bulk of his time in the water park. That means his galleries from the con will have many more bathing suit versions of cosplays than mine did. We start […]

ColossalCon East 2017 Gallery by FPS, Friday Part 2

Posted  September 15, 2017  by  Rodney Brown

My first full day at the first ever ColossalCon East was busy, even though I didn’t get there until 2:30 in the afternoon. The registration was where most of the convention activity was, in the convention center, and as I mentioned in the last post, the Kalahari in the Poconos is enormous. I wound up stationing myself […]

Dragon Con: A Cacophony Of Fun And Disgust You’ll Want To Repeat

Posted  September 13, 2017  by  Luis Correa

My first introduction to Dragon Con had been an elevator saturated in vomit that had a distinct smell of sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie and sad dreams. Of course with the frequency of the elevators and the late night need for people to move about — I had been trapped inside that elevator for at least […]

Dragon Con 2017 Sunday Cosplay Photos By Wonderllama Photography

Posted  September 12, 2017  by  Gregg "Wonderllama" Snider

Getting up early for a flight on Monday? Every costume you brought still tossed haphazardly across your hotel room? Sure, you could get a jump on packing and turn in early, but it’s Sunday night at Dragon Con, so … nahhh! While not quite as packed as Saturday night, Sunday is a take-no-prisoners night of […]

Posted  September 11, 2017  by  Bentpic5

The third and last of three galleries from Saturday at Dragon Con taken by Bentpic5 encompass the evening, when the partying at Dragon Con reaches its peak. Luckily I avoided any of the very late criminal stupidity of dropping bottles from upper floors into the atrium. Among the cosplayers in this gallery are Miss Sinister Cosplay, Jacey Julep, Yaya Han, Brandon the […]

IT Isn’t Clowning Around With The Scares

Posted  September 8, 2017  by  E. Ortiz

Readers, understand that I have read Stephen King’s IT and saw the two-part television special many moons ago. I tried reading Stephen King novels and his books start out well, full of great moments of horror. But the seem to stumble midway through the plot and always end poorly. IT, the novel, follows the same […]

Dragon Con 2017 Friday Cosplay Gallery 2 by Bentpic5

Posted  September 6, 2017  by  Bentpic5

Here is the second cosplay gallery from Friday at Dragon Con by Bentpic5. Friday is often nearly as busy a day for cosplay in the convention as Saturday, since the parade is Saturday morning, and. That, and the fact that the partying has only had one night to take effect, means things get started earlier. Cosplayers in this […]
