You're the Han That I Want



Again, thanks to RipCurl808 for putting this, and the following videos of Masquerade on Youtube for all of us, or they'd only be seen live on stage by the few that could make it to San Diego for Comic Con and into Masquerade on Saturday night

the New York Times has an interesting angle to their coverage.... the cosplayers weapons



And I found it surprising and rewarding to hear the police say that crime goes down during Comic Con due to the nature of the attendees

This has to be a movie prop, it can't be a cosplayer! She would need bodyguards


Realizing that the original actress playing Mystique was in body makeup, not a body sock, and that the recent Mystique was in a body sock, as she had more screen time and they had to cut down the make up time for every day of filming, the level of overt sexual attractiveness is pegging the meter for men in the vicinity or visual field, to go to Comic Con as Mystique would require many bodyguards in reply to the sex crazed guys it would create. This is the crux of my argument with the costume doesn't equal consent issue... to display so much sexual attraction is to create a sexual problem among the human males, and some females, regardless of age or intellect. That would be exactly why this character was created naked, to sell comics to readers enjoying the titillation from the sexy female characters. That's why they have big breasts and zero body fat. Your thoughts?

in contrast, no one is getting aroused by the Miyazaki character "No Face" from Spirited Away

Good video coverage of the 2014 cosplayers found at Comic Con 2014



The good stuff only lasts 3 minutes, the last 90 seconds is the producer letting you know his website, news of the next couple videos coming out one a week for the next couple of weeks

It's all about being in the spirit, and letting your inhibitions disappear behind the costume. Raise Your Glass, by Sneaky Zebra and a London Comic Con



A bigger better variety of characters than other videos... and Danny Glover is too old for this shit (drops the mic)



While in the Hall H line, and somewhere around 2am, I was talking to Susan in line, and the following short animated films came up in conversation, she hasn't seen them, and I recommend them highly





the original is only the animated part, but the embed ability isn't on it, so if you wish to, here is the URL https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=badHUNl2HXU

A favorite moment from Hall H on Friday, during the Book of Life panel, Biz Markie leading 6500 laughing fans in "You Got What I Need"



Not from the con, but related to cosplay "Prop Wars" (pretty funny)



From the imagination of "Sneaky Zebra"

Best video of the 2014 cosplayers I think I've seen yet!



From the same outfit "Sneaky Zebras" is the following from London, not as completely stunning... but a damn good honorable mention

Even business websites adore Comic Con cosplayers

From the Geeky Girls facebook page gallery

Ken Whitehouse posted a gallery of Cosplay on Flikr, these are my favorites
