Baltimore Comic Con Pictures

At BCC I went as Powergirl and my brother went as Death Stroke.  Here are some of the awesome cosplayers we saw there.  All of the people we met there were super friendly and the floor was one of my favorites.  My only real criticism was that there weren’t enough panels and even more importantly they weren’t strategically placed panels.  It may not have been the best plan to put artist panels against artist panels, and comic book industry panels against other comic book industry panels.  But the atmosphere was awesome, and for me that can be even more important.  Nice people attending and running these shows is the number 1 thing for me.  Making friends and having a great time can make up for the lack of somethings that I want.

TeenTitans vs. Death Stroke.
These kids came out of no where to attack my brother. That was so perfect. Everyone was in character. You can see the smiles on the titans’ faces.

Even The Avengers eventually start to age

I did my best to take as many pictures with as many Supergirls as I could. It just made me happy.

Someone lost their Blossom, I hope she found her Trainer.

These are some great XMen but to be honest I’m not sure which XMen they are.

Darth’s costume lit up and flashed. So much joy.

Wonder Woman and Black Canary. I like that they took their costumes from the Bombshell Toy Line.

There are so many costumes where I stop for a second and think people are doing Xena and Gabby that I get so excited when it really is Xena and Gabby

Link, a staple at every Con

This Kid is the GREATEST cosplayer alive. He was so excited to be the Doctor and couldn’t be more into everything he saw. Awesome job Doctor.

His mustache was drawn on pretty well, it took a few seconds to realize it was just marker.

T I found some more Supergirls, and Lobo.

I have to find Static Shock at every Convention, it isn’t really a convention without him.

IMG_20130907_165437

Since this was the convention where everyone was talking about Batwoman it’s good to know she was already there taking care of herself.

Tron! I think it’s super awesome when people’s costumes light up.

There were a whole bunch of different Wonder Women at BCC, and they all came with a different cool way to play her

Raven started yelling at Death Stroke across the lobby. It was a magical moment.

IMG_20130908_122844

I love her utility belt.

My favorite of all the Supergirls I found that weekend

Now this last picture is my personal favorite.  See I did something dumb, I forgot to take a picture of me and my brother together.  He just started college too, so I can’t just bug him at home to take a picture with me.  I searched far and wide, and I found this.

Geek Chic- Bracelets

Bracelets are the kind of jewelry that I start the day wearing but never finish the day with.  I like the way they look but all of that clanging can get really annoying really fast.  So if anyone knows how to defeat this problem I would love to hear it.  I wish I could wear them more.

This is definately a bracelet I would wear.   Always having an extra flash drive could become a lifesaver.

I always like the idea of a good old fashioned charm bracelet.

Being a nerd starts at an early age

I remember being about 4 years old and my dad took me to a Star Trek Convention.  A few weeks ago I went to a Star Trek Convention and there was a girl there about the same age as I was then and her parents were taking her to her second convention that weekend.  Little kids love to play dress up.  I know I had a box full of clothes that I could pretend to be anyone in as did many of my friends.  Dressing up as what you aren’t isn’t just fun for grown ups.  Kids love it too.

I don't know these kids, I just think it's one of the cutest cosplays ever.

Geek Chic Home Decor

Nerd Fashion doesn’t have to end with what you put on your body.  So many people have nerded up their houses. It seems that the most popular room to do it in is a kid’s room or in a nursery.  It makes sense in a lot of ways because then as an adult you have it but you don’t have to see it all the time.  Or if someone comes to visit they don’t think, Wow this is intense.  I’m  a big fan of the TARDIS wall sticker and probably would put that somewhere in my apartment for people to see.  Or a Blue door to the outside would be a nice subtle way for a geek reference.

Armor

Armor is so cool. The way it shines in the light and protects from swords and arrows. Chain mail disperses the blow, and is movable. We obviously don’t use them any more in battle in the literal sense. We use tanks and drones. But that doesn’t make middle ages fashion any less cool.

Above is a more literal interpretation.  Below is a more modern every day wear version of armor.

Then of course there are all of the superheroes that have armor, Iron Man, Thor, Death Stroke, Captain America, Batman, Aquaman.  The list goes on and on.   Armor is cool and definately super nerdy  in the best way.
