Award winning Cosplayer and costume designer, Holly Conrad, the Masquerade skit that was in the documentary Comic Con IV: A Fan's Hope (great movie that makes it clear why people love Comic Con)

Great look at 2014 San Diego cosplayers, they found a lot that aren't in other videos and photos (And the opening monologue from Jules is terrific!)

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

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

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

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

I'm not a fan of ballet.. but damn it. Gotta give lots of respect to cosplayers that pull off a ballet routine at Masquerade
Again, huge nerd love to Rip Curl 808 for posting this and the other masquerade players one at a time!
