cosplay music video

I’ve seen my fair share of cosplay videos over the years, but YouTuber RealTDragon’s compilation from this year’s Dragon Con is extra fantastic because it’s an “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” cosplay music video. Cosplayers lip-sync and boogie to the peppy tune, and it’s hilarious and awesome. This is definitely my new favorite style of cosplay video.

Watch the video after the break – especially if you need to smile.

brienne cosplay

Cosplayer Galacticat brought a number of different cosplays to Dragon Con, but her Brienne of Tarth is so good that I wanted to give it it’s own post.

I have a feeling a lot of time, energy, Worbla, Craft Foam, and sleepless nights went into making this, and it definitely paid off. Not to mention, she says it was her first time crafting armor! It sure doesn’t show.

Check out more pictures after the break.

Photo shoots of all kinds happen at Dragon Con. You’ll find gatherings of GI Joe cosplayers, Sailor Scouts, Playboy bunny style versions of everything, and yes, even Marvel characters wearing swimsuits. Hey, heroes deserve a day off once in a while.

Characters in the Marvel bathing suit group include Emma Frost, Rogue, Gambit, Wolverine, Black Cat, Dazzler, and many more. As hot as it was at Dragon Con, a superhero pool party seems like the perfect place to be.

Photos by Pat Loika. I recognize a few cosplayers in the group: Birds of ‘Play, Chrissy Lynn, Michael Huffman, and Chloe Dykstra. Let us know who else you spot!

See a few more pics of the group after the break.

james gunn and groot

James Gunn decided to make Dragon Con the last stop on his Guardians of the Galaxy world tour and everything was coming up Groot.

Not only did he get a picture with Groot cosplayer HurleyFX, but he lead a bunch of people in the first official Groot off.

On a side note, if you haven’t seen what went into HurleyFX’s Groot cosplay, we previously posted pictures of it being created. It really is a masterpiece.

You can check out the Gunn led Grooting after the break.

marriott carpet dresses

Remember that Marriott carpet camo cosplay from last year’s Dragon Con? The one that caused all the legal hubbub? Looks like it was reimagined this year with a more stylish option.

carpet cosplay dragon con

One of the coolest costumes at Dragon Con this year was ridiculously clever: Volpin Props went to the Marriott hotel and carefully sketched and re-created the recognizable carpet and designed carpet camo outfits. Photos of the cosplay spread across social media, and Volpin Props responded to the popularity by making the fabric design available on Spoonflower. Unfortunately, the carpet manufacturers weren’t thrilled with this action.

Even though Volpin Props has made their ugly carpet pattern more well known, Couristan, Inc. has sent Volpin a Cease and Desist to stop selling the fabric. I know the manufacturer is legally correct, but you’d think they’d take this unique opportunity to talk to Volpin and do some creative advertising or something rather than just shutting them down. Regardless, any cosplayers who want to make costumes patterned on the carpet will figure it out – they tend to be a resourceful bunch.

Kevin Skiera debuted his Daft Punk costumes at DragonCon over Labor Day weekend, and as you can tell, the level of detail is pretty incredible.

Dragon Con features some of the most amazing cosplay you’ll see at any convention and this video captures some of the best. It’s actually a tribute to George Pérez that features the heroes of Justice League of America vs The Avengers. There’s every part of cosplay represented from makeup to prosthetics to costuming of every kind, it’s incredible!

wonderwoman

Fashionably Geek reader Rose tipped us to her Amazon Wonder Woman cosplay (and the awesome Nubia Wonder Woman cosplayer she ran into) from Dragon Con and we loved it.

One of the things that makes this cosplay unique and interesting is just how much work went into it. Rose gave us the details in her email.

I’m a leather worker and made the breastplate, belt and skirt, all hand tooled and hand painted. A friend helped me sew the leather bodice.

Together we figured out how to turn a piece of industrial brass sheet metal into the crown, the eagle sword catcher on the chest, the belt buckle and the eagles on the shin guards.

We also learned how to use an electro-chemical process to etch the designs into the brass. We even looked up ancient greek lettering for the tail feathers.

We tried to create a set of armor that is functional. The breastplate has been hardened using heat and chemicals and will stop a blade. We stuck with all leather and brass for an authentic feel.

That’s a lot of work and dedication, Rose. Wonder Woman would be proud!
