Getting to know your Cosplay at Dallas Fan Days!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 24th, 2017

Each Fall in Irving large groups of people get dressed up for a good time- I’m not talking about Halloween… it’s Dallas Fan Expo weekend and the cosplayers are at it again. I talked with some of my favorite cosplayers of the weekend about why they do it. Below are some images and what they had to say about their costumes or shall I say COSPLAY!

Dallas Comic Con 2015: The Cosplay!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 10th, 2015

Hillary T., Here…

IMG_0297

When comic con rolls into town, cosplay is a big part of it. Cosplay is dressing up and getting the chance to be someone else for a bit.  People spend weeks, and even months getting ready and building their costumes. There are even people, like LeAnna Vamp who have made a living cosplaying. LeAnna Vamp is a professional cosplayer who recently attended Fan Expo Dallas, and she is known for her YouTube channel “I Love Nerd Girls” and “Star Wars Girls.” LeAnna brought her special kind of nerd love to Dallas this past weekend and shared with us how she got started in cosplay.

This weekend, at Fan Days 2.0, Taylor and I spent a great deal of time watching and loving all of the fabulous cosplay. There was so much of it- Black Cat (Krystle Starr looked amazing!), Flash(there was an entire family!), Arrow, Arsenal, Lego Hulk (this was genius), Captain Marvel- I could go on! People brought it out, in full force, and it was on point.

HEROES OF COSPLAY – GROUP CATEGORY

by Justin Cline on Sep 12th, 2013

logoFor those of you not already in the know, Heroes of Cosplay is a “reality” show currently airing on the Syfy network. Next week, the program will be airing its season finale, the second of two episodes filmed at Kansas City’s Planet Comicon. In this contest, the participants will be asked to compete as teams. Three of the show’s stars will be portraying characters from American McGee’s Alice, while yet another three will be recreating characters from How To Train Your Dragon.

While I’m certain their costumes and skits will be entertaining, I’m also of the opinion that the entire cast needs a bonding experience. To that end, I would like to suggest that they enter a group competition in the future as the characters from Pixar’s Toy Story movies.

And I like to think it would go a little something like this. Read the rest of this entry »

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

screen-shot-2016-09-27-at-8-15-46-am

I was fortunate enough to make it into ‘Wizard World Austin‘ 2016 where I got to talk to a variety of excellent writers and artists in the comic book world. Wizard World is franchise of comic book conventions around the country, bringing everyone’s favorite comic book creators to one stage so that fan’s can meet, greet, and purchase all sorts of fun items. In addition to the comic creators, a vast amount of television and film personalities were in attendance, including Bruce Campbell, Lee Majors, William Shatner, WWE’s Becky Lynch, and Spike himself James Marsters.

My visit to Wizard World’s Comicon in Tulsa, OK would not be complete without getting into the Sean Astin panel. There’s just something about the Rudy Hobbit I’ve always loved. He’s one of the first movie stars to take my breath away in ‘The Goonies‘ and he’s still going strong! Love this man! I don’t understand why Wizard World did not use the Grand Ballroom like they did last year, the Assembly Hall worked out well for some talent, but Astin deserved the big room! It was bursting beyond capacity while we waited for him to take the stage and he was funny, sincere and everyone’s best friend, just like we all expected him to be. He slipped in and out of character reciting lines as Samwise, giving Doug’s legendary lisp some good use from ‘50 First Dates‘, he was amazing to see and worth the price of admission on his own.

Are there any sweeter words in this world than Comicon? If there are, I haven’t heard them. This weekend saw Wizard World making its way back to Tulsa for another year of entertaining programming, fan meet & greets, and more cosplay than any normal human can handle. Good thing we’re all super-nerds, eh?

Dallas Comic Con 2015: A Review From Far Far Away!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 10th, 2015

Hillary T., Here…

Since Dallas Comic Con has been acquired by Canadian parent company Fan Expo, the guest list for this event has expanded and grown to almost astronomical proportions. This May, it was no exception! They really pulled out all the stops and had almost all of Dallas Convention Center (with the exclusion of the F Exhibit Hall) open for business.

Run-Down of Planet Comicon in Kansas City!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Mar 16th, 2015

Hey guys, Jana here,

PicMonkey Collage

This weekend held a pretty great event, no I’m not talking about the most epic Pi day to end all Pi days, but the Kansas City Planet Comicon!!! Celebrities, creators and throngs of fans made the trip to KC to revel in the glory that is and will always be a celebration of all things pop culture and all things très geek. Celebrity guests consisted of Cary Elwes (‘The Princess Bride‘), Michael Rooker (‘The Walking Dead‘), Karen Gillan (‘Doctor Who‘), Stephen Amell (‘Arrow‘) and Scott Wilson (‘The Walking Dead‘) among many others and was a serious draw for fans. Not everyone goes to a con just to see celebs, others view it as a networking event, a place to share their craft or just as a reason to go all out with the cosplay and know they will be among others doing the same. Whatever the reason, fans congregated en masse at Bartle Hall for the weekend.

Comic Con: Dallas Fan Days 2015!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 9th, 2015

Hillary T., Here…

cc011

As a fangirl, I love comics and dressing up. I love being someone else for one day and let’s not lie, Comic Con is my mother ship. This weekend was no exception. I spent two days basking the glory and adoration that was formerly Sci-Fi Expo and is now Fan Days 2.0! It’s my family, and walking through the doors of the Irving Convention Center is always like being at home. It is very much like a space ship or the Sandcrawler from ‘Star Wars’, with its four levels, an over powering awning, and yet, when the parking attendant took mine and Taylor’s (lead camera) money, we were excited and ready to get out of the car and start mingling with everyone and see what Fan Days 2015 had to offer. I decided to go ahead and dress up, because hey, who doesn’t like it when press looks like someone else? My costume of choice? Totally obscure and amazing! I was ready to go as Special Agent Dale Cooper, from Twin Peaks. I even brought along a thermos of “Damn fine coffee,” and a bag of donuts. Dead Laura Palmer would be waiting for me at the convention, for sure!

Alan Ritchson Panel Q&A From Wizard World Comic Con!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Nov 12th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

alan-ritchson-hunger-games-catching-fire

 

This should be the last article I have to write about the epic event that was Wizard World Comic Con in Tulsa, Oklahoma this last weekend. The entire event was so energetic and exciting! Cosplayers far and wide showing off their hard work, time and lots of money in their creative costumes. For all the little posers that call yourselves geeks because you wear glasses or have gone to see some superhero movies, you’re an absolute disgrace to the title and we reach a level of unconsentatneous, that is to say “disagreement”. If you’re a geek, then I have no terminology for what some of these fans should be called, then.  You might dress as Gandalf to go to a party, but I met a guy that made up his own wizard name and costume, complete with vine covered staff and stayed in costume ALL. DAMN. DAY. He’s in the food court holding his beard back while he eats nachos and the beautiful people walk by smirking while they wear some face paint, a character t-shirt  and their underwear. How in the world can one dressed up person poke fun at another one? I’ll tell you how, because the smirking people are just posers.

Fan Days 2014: A Look inside The Show!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 3rd, 2014

Hey everyone! Your favorite multitasking, costumed wunderkind here

XSaFs.St.117

Prepare yourselves, for I have an excellent look back at Dallas Comic Con’s own Fandays, from October 17th-19th. First I would like to apologize for the delay in reporting, but you know, Halloween isn’t just one day. It’s a month long celebration of costumes and shenanigans, as well as my favorite time of year. Dallas Comic Con’s Fandays fell on the third weekend in October this year. The date was perfect for prime costuming parades as it fell so close to Halloween, many costumed attendees were ready for both events.

I am ramping up for this weekend’s inevitable epic event, Dallas Comic Con’s Fan Days. Since attending my first convention nearly 9 years ago (great story, I ran into Corey Feldman. Literally.) I have had the opportunity to attend conventions from both coasts, and truly, no one puts on a great convention multiple times a year like they do it in Dallas. I mean nobody.

Dallas Comic Con 2014 Coverage!!

Comic Con. The word evokes a range of feelings from a vast diversity of people who come together to celebrate their passions and show their allegiances to their fandoms.  The ways to do this are many, be it through dressing up as their favorite character, meeting the actors and actresses who bring those characters to life, or expressing it in countless other ways, Dallas Comic Con of 2014 offered something for everyone.  Between the vendors offering one of a kind collectibles, getting one on one time with celebrity guests, the panels that brought like minds together, and the sense of camaraderie and belonging between the attendees, I was not disappointed in my first foray into the world of comic book conventions.

More Dallas Comic Con 2014 Coverage – The Costumes!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 19th, 2014

Rebecca S., Here….

IMG_6009

This year at Dallas Comic Con I (pictured above in the Tardis outfit) decided to try something I had never done before. Cosplay. I kept it simple, as I do not possess a sewing machine or any type of sewing skills, and purchased my costume. I was surprised to find that people treated me differently while dressed up than they did while I was just in a regular shirt. People were friendlier, and more talkative, especially about Doctor Who. It was fun to plan out the costume but mine didn’t hold a candle to a lot of the costumes out there. I plan on getting a sewing machine and stepping it up a notch for next year, and my son has said he wants to join in on the fun seeing all the other kids dressed up. Time to get planning… as inspiration here are some of my favorite cosplays from the weekend. Enjoy.
