DOG COSPLAYING AS UMBREON, I CHOOSE YOU!!!

Not sure if this Pokémon dog cosplay by lefeon-ex is awesome or mean. Can it see? Does it care? But what if it wanted to dress up as Psyduck? Do all dogs really go to heaven?

NYCC Was A Blast, But Thank God It’s Finally Over
I saw the dude above in the food court on the final day of New York Comic Con and couldn’t resist snapping a pic. He was clearly feeling exactly how most of the other con-goers felt on the last day: tired as balls. While I lugged around a backpack containing roughly 30 lbs. of electronics and camera gear in the dwindling twilight hours of NYCC, my muscles swelled, my bones ached, and sweat seeped through my clothes. This man was my Jesus on the cross. He was my spirit animal. Keep fighting the good fight, brave warrior.
We scored a buttload of great content from NYCC to share with you all, but give us some time to recuperate. See you tomorrow.

Official Dragon Ball Z Hair Wax

Yessir, this is the real deal. This Dragon Ball Z hair wax is officially licensed by Bandai Premium to hold your hair with a Super Saiyan bind. The wax is sold in three different strengths, “Natural, Hard, and Super Hard,” using carrot essence. The good news is, it’s also super affordable for US buyers. Bandai Premium is asking for 980 yen on its online shop, which is just about $10 USD.

Let’s see how many cosplayers will be using this for their hair.

You Pitiful Old Man
Amazing cosplay spotted on deviantART of Adventure Time's most tragic character, Simon Petrikov, commonly known as Ice King. I always loved how he oozes an über-cool John Lennon swagger in flashback episodes.

Pics & Video From the New Leaf Launch at Nintendo World NY

Oh man! So me and my special lady took the 5am bus from Reading, PA to New York City this past Saturday for the Animal Crossing New Leaf launch event and holy geeze was is fun! There were games to play sweet pins to collect, and StreetPasses aplenty. They even had a tiny replica diorama of an Animal Crossing town!

Check out the swankily edited video below for a better look at what you missed if you couldn’t make it out to NY over the weekend.

Wizard World Philly Cosplay Dump

Wizard World was mad fun. In case you haven’t already, check out the recap HERE. Can’t wait ‘til next year!

The Time Lords of Wizard World Philadelphia

I’ve been going to Wizard World Philly every year for the past seven years or so and this year was by far the most that I’ve ever seen so much Doctor Who cosplay. Clearly a testament how much the show’s fanbase has grown over the years.

I’m sure their hearts were collectively shattered as Matt Smith announced over the weekend that he’d be leaving the series. I know mine sure was.

ALBOTAS GOES TO WIZARD WORLD PHILLY 2013
As someone who has been regularly attending Wizard World since 2007, I can honestly say it gets bigger year after year. With big names like Stan Lee and the cast of The Walking Dead and Firefly, this was easily the biggest year yet.

It’s time to face the facts: nerd culture has infiltrated the mainstream and it looks like it’s here to stay. If this year’s Wizard World Philly comic Con was any indication, it might have something to do with a little show called The Walking Dead. The AMC TV series seems to have bridged the gap between mainstream media and comicbook fandom. Everywhere you looked, people could be seen with Walking Dead VIP lanyards and arms full of Walking Dead merch. For a second, I actually thought I was at a Walking Dead convention.
But then the REAL fun began. BUYING LOTS OF STUFF!!! Meeting celebrities and attending panels is all good and well, but there’s nothing like sifting through old back issues. I managed to score some issues of the old Vampirella magazines and various other junk I’d been missing from my collection. Word to the wise: if you’ve never attended a con like Wizard World and plan on doing so in the future, bring a buttload of backup funds because you WILL spend money on the plethora of cool stuff on display.
And the cosplay at Wizard World just keeps getting better and better each year. The first Wizard World I ever attended had barely any cosplayers, but these days you can’t walk 10 steps without bumping into someone dressed as their favorite character. Check out our cosplay posts HERE and HERE from the event.


All in all, it’s been amazing to watch this yearly con evolve into what it is today. Back in the day, the main celebrity guests were cool, but nothing as huge as Stan Lee or the casts of Firefly and The Walking Dead.

Speaking of Stan Lee, check out our article 5 Things We Learned About Stan Lee at Wizard World Philly.
I leave you now with this video of a little kid bumrushing the stage at the Walking Dead panel. This was NOT part of the show. Some parent just let their kid get up on stage and take the mic.

Sexy Lady Snake Cosplay by Crystal Graziano

Obligatory joke about our snakes being totally solid or whatever. Pics by WHITEDARRYL.

Speaking of pretty girls in skimpy cosplay, did you hear that the ladies of 16 Bit Sirens are trying to raise awareness (Among other things i.e. weiners. Oh snap!) to how some cosplayers are mistreated at events?

Yes, it seems that just because a woman dresses like a whore for attention to celebrate their fandom, or whatever other reason, it doesn’t mean that she actually is a whore! Allow the great Dave Chappelle to elaborate.

Never forget.

But for real, guys, if you’re groping up on chicks at cons, you’re a super creep and should be ashamed of yourselves. There’s never a good time to not act like a proper gentleman.

Adorableness at MegaCon, Part 1

While I did snag a lot of shots of adult and teenage cosplayers this weekend at MegaCon, let’s not forget about the little ones. These parents are super awesome and their kids are even cooler for enjoying it.

I still can’t get over how cute that Link was this weekend!
