Superman And Big Blue Bear At Denver Comic Con
I had a super time at Denver Comic Con today with the main focus for me being on the cosplay. I did go to two panels; Cosplay Photography In Colorado and The star Trek TNG cast reunion, hosted by William Shatner. Don’t you hate when people name drop to make it seem like they’re all important or something? I hate that. Today I also saw Lou Ferrigno, Bruce Campbell, Adam West and of course, Superman. I also got to meet and chat with photographer Heather Kant and writer Colleen Bement while we were penned into a corner with a few other members of the media waiting to be let in to the TNG panel. That’s another thing that’s so great about going to these cons; you get to meet people that you only know by reputation or online handle. Cons are gifts that keep on giving which is why people always come back and why the cons always get bigger; it’s good people that understand what peace, love understanding and respect are and more importantly, how to dole them out in droves.
The Grand Inquisitor
You don’t have to wear a costume or know anything about comics to go to a con. People go for many different reasons and there are many different levels of passion. Prior to going to cons I never had a desire to cosplay, but now I’d kind of like to, even on a day to day basis, not just at a con. Until that time I’ll just be like the Grand Inquisitor up there, watching, waiting, “IGNORE ME!”
I have a good 15 seasons of The Simpsons under my belt so I know Marge Simpson when I see her. Thor, Jane and a puzzle piece from Tetris are on the left.
I’m not sure what the thing above is supposed to be. It looks like a doorknob to me. Can anyone help me out?
Emperors Royal Guard
Check this guy out! That beard is awesome, two thumbs up for the Star Wars reference and how cool to still be in costume even when you are on a break. Massive props for the originality Denver cosplayers are bringing to the table. We seem to have been given respite from slave Leia and that should last until episode seven is released.
If his sign is a reference to this post, I think he may be right. I have some photos to go along with a very introspective post about the Star Trek panel going on in my head so stay tuned for more from Denver Comic Con. Cheers!
