While all cosplayers (that I have met so far) are, at some level, performers. Not many take it to that next level of actually producing films featuring themselves as their favorite characters, picking up the story of their favorite show after a premature cancellation. (OK, Star Trek fans not withstanding). Colin, the Boy Wonder, is part of a team of Cosplayers/Actors/Writers that produce Young Justice: Abduction, and The Apartment. I got to work with Colin … Continue reading

  Sunday was a gorgeous day in New York.

Ever we here in Geeksville can’t say we aren’t a little … Continue reading

  I met Ms. Pardalis at New York Comic Con this past year.  (She was our Cosplay of the Day for the first day of the con.)  Right away I was blown away by her Baroness costume from G.I. Joe.   It wasn’t your everyday Comic Con costume.   It was the work of a dedicated craftsman.  I think it was the first picture I took that day.  Sadly, I am not a professional photographer, I failed … Continue reading
