For Those At Home

With Dragon*Con being a hybrid convention these days – limited and restricted in-person attendance combined with a large a quite robust, all things being considered, virtual reach – here’s some beautiful ideas for those at home.

For Those At Home There Are More Clothing Choices

Yeah, just the clothing choices make it so that virtually attending Dragon*Con is A-OK. It might even be better in some ways than going in-person. 😉

Dragon*Con 2022

DragonCon 2022 - Death Will Not Win
Dragon*Con 2022 – Death Will Not Win

So, it’s time for Dragon*Con 2022, which is almost a wonder in and of itself since the panicdemic crashed the entire sci fiction convention circuit. But this convention is still on, though one could call it almost in Dracolich form now, with attendance limited to less than half of what it used to, masking and social distancing being enforced, and much of it being virtual now.

Dragon*Con 2022 – Cosplay Lives!

Still, alive or undead, I tip my hat to the con’s organizers for all the hard work and heartache they’ve gone through to keep this convention in the world. And yes! This does mean that cosplay is still in the world, with the prurient wonders it brings to us.

A Risen Dragon

A Risen Dragon – Dragon Con That Is, And Only Sort Of

So, in something resembling defiance of the long haul panicdemic, Dragon Con has resumed this year and currently as of this writing in session. True, they’ve deliberately limited the number of attendees to only slightly above half their normal number, and certain favorite, public events have been left off the schedule, but the convention is happening.

So, in support of Dragon Con, here are some lovely cosplay babes, since they’re actually the favorite part of SciFi conventions like Dragon Con for many attendees. And, like the convention itself, posts like this are something of a tradition with me. 😉

It’s Dragon*Con 2017

It’s Dragon*Con 2017 – So, Cosplay Babes!

Well, it’s time once again for Dragon*Con! To celebrate that fact, here’s some beautiful cosplay babes for you to enjoy. This way, even if like myself, you can’t attend the conference, you can still enjoy it.

Oh, and a PSA for those who will be attending: Cosplay Is Not Consent.

Cosplay Is Not Consent

As this year’s Dragon*Con starts tomorrow and both my wives will be there working – transporting the celebrity guests to and from the airport and generally being their handlers while there – and in costume part of the time, here’s a simple PSA for you all…

Cosplay Is Not Consent
(Click to Enlarge)

Let me reiterate and expand upon this message. No matter how sexy the babes’ costumes are – and many are and will be very sexy – it is not a indication of consent.

Look But Don’t Touch

Yes! They have given consent to be looked at. Indeed, if you can exhibit some level of manners and discretion, looking is wanted and actively encouraged. In many cases, even a bit of ogling is desired – that is why they’re dressed that way and that is the sort of attention they’re seeking. And yes, they’ve tacitly consented to be photographed if and when and only if and when it doesn’t require they’re involvement in the process.

They have NOT, however, consented to any of the following behaviors:

  • Being touched in any manner;
  • Catcalled or otherwise verbally assaulted;
  • Followed around, especially into elevators and such;
  • Stopped to be photographed, either on their own or with you.

If you want to do any of the above – and some of that you shouldn’t want to do – ask politely, showing at least as much courtesy as you would show towards a woman not in costume. Play it cool and respectfully, gentlemen, and you might just be surprised at what these babes will consent to. Play it otherwise and you you might just be painfully shocked by what they, the other con goers, and convention security do by way of reprisal.
