I’ve been going to anime/comic conventions for eight years, yet I still can’t explain what the significance of conventions are to people without having to go through a 20 minute explanation.  It’s truly a life changing experience, I can tell you that for sure!!  Here’s just a small example, but when I was younger I thought I was the only person on this planet that used Deviantart, until I attended Sakura Con.  I ended up collecting over 50 business cards that had their DA links that year, and I thought that was the just coolest thing to know that I was not alone.  Countless other moments had occurred that year where I met more and more people who knew of and appreciated the same things that I did.  So I hope most of you can relate to that feeling of absolute bliss and joy of attending a con.  uvu
Why do you like conventions?  I’d love to hear your stories!!

THE SHOTS HAVE BEEN FIRED.
And it’s simply delicious.

Didn’t the Wonder Woman porn parody have a way better costume too?

CORRECT.

Dream cosplay complete! Not gonna lie, the first time I saw RHATO Starfire I told myself I would never cosplay her (because wow, I don’t have her body and she’s too fuckin’ badass y’know?) But hey, here we are two years later! 

I’ll be debuting Starfire at FanExpo Vancouver 2014 along with EuphoricLandings as Essence and Ben as Roy Harper.

Cosplayers are pretty high up in the feudal caste system that is convention geekdom. And the better the cosplayer, the more popular. The lesser geeks look up to them. Photographers and videographers feed off of them. They have access to the better parties. Guests and high-level staffers try to curry their favor. Cosplayers can even have people they don’t like eliminated by simply crying “creeper” and sending a torrent of outrage in their direction. It’s what the bathrobe Inuyashas strive for, not knowing that in the end, they’re stuck in a crab pot. It gets to be no matter what trite positivity is slung, you can see past the masks and facades. Though by the time you realize you’re in a game of thrones, you already have that assassin’s dagger buried in your back.

It’s a dark world clad in satin and caked in make-up.

This is the funniest hyperbole/satire on cosplay popularity I’ve ever read. 

The Rains of Castamere play at every public convention photoshoot, as those with the best costumes slaughter the traitors who show up in [gasp!] bought costumes.

Are you jelly?!

These are perfect and I love them! ♥♥♥

Little creative style shoot Cat did with Cosportraits (who are truly amazing photographers, go check them out). Guest model Aurora Borealis.

The concept was loosely styled as ‘bad ass Disney princesses’.

I gotta say, the composition of these is phenomenal.
