DragonCon report #5: Photo Layout
My attempt to upload Peter David's full panel [mentioned yesterday] has been continuously flouted by YouTube, so you folks will have to be stuck with a few measly photos.
Granted, some of these photos are of some fairly spectacular stuff. For example, we have this lovely woman on the right here, as Jessica Rabbit. Unlike some people, who came in with obviously plastic measurements, this woman was your standard beautiful woman. She carried it off well because she had simple sexy down pat. Yes, if you’re wondering, I do think sexy is more than just a collection of physical attributes.
But, obviously, that might just be me.
That's one of the nice things about DragonCon -- people are there to be looked at. You can take a photo of a stunning person, then sit down from each other on the same rug because both of you have feet that are in serious pain.
Let me see, there were a whole boatload of costumes at DragonCon. CosPlay is very much a factor. And, while I would have really liked to have taken photos of whole crowds, it was too dark to capture all of them, at least with my camera.
One particular group was called CosPlay deviants. I'm sure you can find them online somewhere -- they even have their own calender.
I'm not entirely certain where the deviant parts come in, but what do I know?
As you can see, on the left we have yet another very lovely poison Ivy. You'll remember that a few days ago, I came across the same one twice -- there were actually so many kicking around at DragonCon, I couldn't keep track of them all. And I had shot one on Friday, and one on Sunday ... even though it was the same exact woman.
But, well, I'm not exactly complaining.
One strange little phenomenon, though, were the ones doing full on impersonations. Batman isn't that creepy unless he's sneaking up behind you and playing with zip lines in an atrium ballroom.
However, when you have a woman dressed like Harley Quinn (from the video game Arkham Asylum) and doing a pitch-perfect impersonation? That is bloody terrifying.
She was actually go good, when she walked off stage at one of the many costume judging, she was actually called back by the crowd, and host Peter David (dressed on the left as the Green Hornet) so she could keep doing an impression of Harley.
Welcome to DragonCon.
Yes, there were women out there dressed in more, um, interesting costumes.
Exhibitionism at DragonCon?
Why do you ask?
I'm not complaining. That's all I'm going to say about it.
There were other good costumes there that had no cleavage involved. For example, we had one fellow in a very good Spawn outfit.
Yes, I know that he's a guy, therefore there can be no cleavage, but that has never stopped a Con-Goer before, why should it start now?
And if you have no idea what I"m talking about, you have obviously not been to many Conventions.
Moving right along....
This next costume will be of interest because it's of Carol Danvers, aka Miss Marvel, part of the Marvel comic universe, and possibly a participant in one of the upcoming Avengers movies, Guardians of the Galaxy -- which means we might be looking at one of our next Avengers.
No, no cleavage exposed here, either. But, again, I'm not complaining.
Besides, there's a reason I didn't post my photos of the "Power Girl" CosPlayer.
Anyway, I think that's enough for now, don't you?
Be well all. I hope to have Peter David live tomorrow. Here's hoping.
