DragonCon! That most mysterious of Cons (to me, anyway) where the main draw seems to be taking pictures of people dressed up in crazy costumes! And this year was no exception, as fellow blogger Shag (he of Firestorm Fan fame) took hundreds of pictures of the cosplayers at the show, including a few featuring our favorite Winged Wonders!
A new trend which has been emerging has been "box heroes," which is heroic costumes which look for all the world like they are dressing up as Mini-Mates. Hawkman got in on that!
No, seriously, I have the Hawkman Mini-Mate and this is what he looks like. I don't know whether to applaud the craftsmanship or just stare. The mace is awesome, and I lobe the Kubert-esque shading on the, ahem, musculature on the chest.
Here he is in his native environment:
As always, there was a photo shoot with all of the DC cosplayers. I am not sure if there are any Hawks in this picture, but check out that sweet Killer Moth on the right!
And then there's this:
THE KING IS IN THE HOUSE!
An episode of Earth Destruction Directive is about to happen and I wasn't even there! Insane!
BIG Props to both Shag for taking the pictures and the Superhero Costuming Forum, who organized a lot of the massive shoots!
