Tweet I’m sure everyone has now read up on the details of the arrest regarding the 17-year-old cosplayed who was found injured and was presumably attacked at Comic-Con on Saturday night. The man who was arrested was 29-year-old Justin Kailor, a photographer associated with something called Project Cosplay. Kailor was friends with the victim, and […]

TweetDespite the glut of unscripted reality TV shows and the lack of recent breakout hits, there is still some slightly untilled ground. For years I’ve been saying a cosplay competition show would be a natural, although nerdcentric TV shows are vastly less popular than shows focusing on rednecks and nouveau riche wives. Although SyFy’s Fangasm […]
Another report of a bunch of youtube perverts harassing cosplayers while posing as a legitimate camera crew news outlet has emerged from London Super Comic Con, as reported by a cosplayer known as Lady Noctis. The event is similar to the one that took place at New York Comic Con last fall, with a camera crew asking women in costume to be interviewed and then asking them vulgar and harassing questions.
This gallery of photos from a 1980’s SF Convention has been floating around for a while, but it just crossed my timestream. While all convention photos from every era share a few things—gaudy hotel carpet backgrounds, at least one ill at ease looking guy with a pencil mustache, women with flaming red hair—this one does prove a few things. Although they didn’t call it “cosplay” back then —I believe the term was costuming—obviously people liked dressing just as scantily.

TweetWe’re at the end of our SDCC coverage! And we’re ending with Megan Byrd’s final selection of photos taken around the site. She’s found more fantastic cosplay than you can shake Gambit’s staff at, as well as looks at various signings, exhibits, art galleries and more! My favourite? The happy family of supervillains..
TweetWell, once again, we are repainting the kitchen to hide the stains we couldn’t clean, the comics cellar is being refiled, the liquor bottles refilled, and the linens have been burnt, per EPA regulations. (And the capuchin monkeys have been bribed with money directly wired to their E*Trade account.) The Beatrix shall return shortly from […]
TweetWe’re almost reaching the end of San Diego Comic-Con 2013, but before packing her bags and heading back to Chicago, Megan Byrd (@comicbookcandy) has sent two last sets of photos from the festival. There’s cacti made out of yarn, Spider-Man being a dick to Darth Vader, all kinds of amazing cosplay, and shots from Archaia, Boom […]
