Things to do on a beautiful summer day:
- Round up a couple dozen of your nearest and dearest.
- Get some super bright George Pérez-era spandex going.
- Pretend to beat the crap out of each other.
I wouldn’t have it any other way.
There’s probably not enough ~heart hands~ to describe just how much Dragon*Con is a totally gross group hug for us, and the ways in which the Superhero Costuming Forum is a bit like coming home. So when I got tapped to suit up as Wasp for their JLA vs Avengers photoshoot that was being organised in honour of George Pérez, how could I say no to my fave gang of costuming misfits? Afterall, there’s a lot of Janet van Dyne’s leading lady that lives inside my flippant fashion heart.
So consider this a jumping high five to the organisers and everybody who fought the good fight, and the amazing photographers and videogaphers that documented us going at it hard like a bunch of nerds.
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.
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.
