Don’t Worry, Supreme Court Not Deciding Jack About Cosplay

Posted January 28, 2016 by Rodney Brown

It is time to euthanize the sad, inaccurate, pathetic clickbait articles that claim that the Supreme Court of the United States is deciding something that will affect cosplay. It isn’t, the decision won’t, and you shouldn’t worry about it — because that decision was made long ago and you are already on the wrong side […]

Arisia 2016 Cosplay Gallery, Sunday & Monday

Posted January 22, 2016 by Rodney Brown

Sunday at Arisia 2016 was loaded with cosplayers, but most of them were involved in some fashion in practicing for, rehearsing for or participating in the Masquerade, and event that traditionally brings out some amazing creativity. Unfortunately, that meant that we got fewer shots than Saturday, being trapped at our table promoting the second annual […]

In Memoriam: Cosplays Of David Bowie’s ‘Jareth’

Posted January 11, 2016 by Rodney Brown

In case you have not heard the sad news, legend and genius David Bowie died yesterday at 69, after a secret 18 month long fight with cancer. It is tough to say what anyone in the nerd community knows David Bowie best for — his science fiction songs like ‘Space Oddity’, ‘Ziggy Stardust’ and ‘Diamond […]

Comiket 89 Cosplay Music Video from Netageo

The Most Obscure, Odd, Interesting Cosplay of 2015

Posted December 27, 2015 by Rodney Brown

This past year I took plenty of pictures of excellent costumes and cosplayers, but I always get a thrill out the odd ones. The creative mashups, the truly obscure, the clearly ironic genderbending, the just plain strange (I’m looking at you X, and your “Weapons Check Guy”). Not surprisingly, DragonCon is well represented here, but […]
