This is what Dragon*Con is all about. Post-con reports are made almost joyously obsolete because if picture = thousand words, etc, then moving pictures of our big smiley faces and those of our nearest and dearest geek compatriots can only be met with hearts doing jumping high fives.
Kudos to the amazing guys at beatdownboogie and DistractotronChannel, who captured — amidst the madness that is Dragon*Con — both our Avengers and Marvel photoshoots. Thank you for letting us relive the memories. <3 --- Want to spot us ladies? Lin represents in Janet Van Dyne’s retro fab Wasp, and again as Phyla-Vell’s Quasar with her amazing Guardians of the Galaxy buddies. Bria assembles with the New Avengers in badass Maya Lopez, ver. Ronin, and you can crowd-spot her in her Super Skrull Xavin during the Marvel photoshoot.
We interrupt your quasi-regularly scheduled comic book posts to bring you a Star Wars inspired outfit! I was going through my closet a few weeks ago when I came across this top and it suddenly hit me that it was perfect for a casual Winter Celchu streetwear look. The look is inspired by an outfit she wore in the Thrawn Trilogy comics. I actually made a costume version of this that you can see here.

And just for fun, I took a picture with my white wig on too!
So we ladies are back from Dragon*Con 2012, which was its usual debauched affair. Slowed down a little by con crud, we still did our best to ~bring the party to you~ Spoilers: the party is a giant alien pokemon worm. But more on that later.
To tide you over till a proper cosplay & convention report, we have a few tidbits from instagram — follow us at whitehotroom. Not game? We also use twitter and tumblr to liveblog events, so come and join us there! <3
In anticipation of The Avengers release, I decided to pull together some outfits that were inspired by characters from the film, but that I could also go to class in without looking like I was trying to walk the runway. Sadly my Captain America earrings didn’t make it there in time, but that didn’t stop me from throwing my best salute!
