Hawkman and Hawkgirl Costumes At DragonCon 2008
Thanks to Shag over at Firestorm Fan for supplying this picture of the Justice League (along with a few hangers-on) from DragonCon 2008!
Hawkman seems to be doing the classic "facepalm" bit, perhaps because Captain Action is hanging out with them. Seriously though, it's a nice costume. The wings look good without being too over the top, and sort of resemble the Super Powers toy's wings, appropriately enough. The morningstar makes for a nice accessory, although it's too bad we can't get a better look at the helmet. I am also happy that someone with roughly my physique was brave (and/or bold) enough to wear the classic Hawkman duds. There's hope for me yet (along with fear for Con-goers)!
Hawkgirl's costume is very nice as well for the most part. The slim wings look great, the cinched belt gives her a sort of Murphy Anderson-esque figure, and her hair is perfect. About my only complaint is the helmet, which is a little too tall, but Hawkgirl's helmet is a tough one so that's cool.
One gets the feeling that Green Arrow is checking out Hawkgirl's, ahem, tailfeathers.
