My Favorite Cosplay

My Favorite Cosplay – Velma

I spent a lot of years attending and working various Sci-Fi conventions and my wives still do so for a few of them up and down the Eastern Seaboard. It’s, hence, no surprise that I’ve a fondness for cosplay. And my sort of favorite cosplay is Velma from Scooby-Doo.

Face it, Velma is/was awesome for so many values for the best character. She was the “smart chick” and was seriously plump and curvy – and not ashamed to wear a pleated miniskirt to show off those thicc thighs. That’s a lot of good to be said for the character, especially when she was written in 1969.

2B Or Not 2B?

2B Or Not 2B? The Dumbest Question Ever!

Whether in the context of cosplay or not, 2B or not 2B is quite possibly the dumbest question ever. And, if it’s not actually the dumbest, it’s still down there near the nadir of queries. 😉

If given the option, you always choose YoRHa No.2 Type B aka 2B.

COVID: Most & Least Impacted

COVID: Most & Least Impacted Group

We’ve endured over two years of the Coronavirus pandemic and panicdemic – and certain sorts are committed to keeping it alive for much longer. So, I believe it’s time to take a look at the one group that has, at the same time, been the most and least impacted by China’s plague upon the world – science fiction and fantasy fandom’s Cosplayers.

Cosplayers, many of whom are very focused upon this, were devastated by the disease. Almost all of the venues where they gather were closed and many have not and likely will not reopen. And, on top of that, the general economic scouring caused by the government’s response to COVID-19 gutted a lot of cosplayers and those in cosplays supporting industries ability to participate. So yes, they were in many respects the most impacted group.

On the other hand, they were in some ways the least impacted group. It was and is no stretch or hardship to add a mask to almost any cosplay outfit… assuming, of course, that the outfit doesn’t already include one! 😆

A Different Interpretation

The Dark Side Of The Moon – Sailor Moon That Is

Sailor Moon, both manga and anime, aren’t even in the top 100 of my favorites, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t enjoy some excellent and beautiful Sailor Guardian cosplay. And, insofar as I’m concerned, bonus points for their being Black babes, who are a rarity in White-Accessible cosplay venues.

Last Night's Fun

Here’s hoping you all enjoyed Halloween. No matter what you did – bar hopped as much as possible with the ongoing lock-downs, had a party at your home or someone else’s. went trick-or-treating (Yes, in my day adults went trick-or-treating after the kiddies went home 😉 ), or just stayed in – I hope last night’s fun was all you wanted it to be.
