It’s been a busy year for the Distractotron team as they captured fantastic cosplayers in action at conventions around the world. As the year comes to a close, the team looks back at the best the year had to offer.
Cosplayers really upped their game this year at NC Comicon 2016. Don’t believe me? Take the jump for a look at some of the cosplayers captured by the Distractotron team.
Sneaky Zebra made it to Blizzcon 2016, and captured some of the best cosplayers doing the thing they do best – looking awesome in fantastic costumes.
Silver Surfer. You know him, you love him. You’ve seen him surf the space waves looking for world’s that Galactus will devour. But have you ever seen him surf the streets of New York City?
Beat Down Boogie has completed its video spotlight of the cosplayers at the New York Comic Con. I highly recommend checking out these videos as they are well produced and showcase the best of the best at the con.
Beat Down Boogie has compiled a new video featuring the cosplay on display at the Dragon Con 2016 parade. Check it out to see what was going outside the convention hall on Saturday.
The crew at Sneaky Zebra ran around like crazy at DragonCon capturing great cosplayers in action. Now the YouTube channel is sharing the results of their hard work with the rest of the world.
While Marvel is making a big deal with its cosplay variant covers, Valiant Entertainment has subverted their exclusives by releasing a cosplay variant cover series of its own… featuring cats!
Of all the variant covers we’ve seen over the last year, the cosplay variants seem to be the most exciting, because they show the craft of talented cosplayers from around the world on the covers of Marvel comics! It’s such great exposure for cosplay and the publisher, that it makes sense for Marvel to continue the variant line throughout the rest of the year.
This past weekend at the Tampa Bay Comic Con, the biggest guest they had was Norman Reedus, who plays Daryl Dixon in The Walking Dead. He had long autograph lines, he had fans wearing “Team Daryl” t-shirts all over the place, and he got me thinking about characters associated with the comics but who may not have started as an active part of them.
If you are a cosplayer headed to the Baltimore Comic-Con, you may want to rethink your Deadshot, Deadpool, Wolverine, Harley Quinn, Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Warcraft, World Series MVP, and Overwatch cosplay, as the Baltimore Comic-Con is banning all weapons (real and fake) at the convention.
During this past weekend’s Wizard World Columbus, I ended up part of a conversation that got me thinking about fans and why we don’t always support the characters we love.
