Scifi/Fantasy conventions are, if not the most, then one of the most hard-hit of “industries” by the pandemic has been conventions. They essentially went out of existence in 2020 and many of them will take years to recover … if they recover and resume at all.
Yeah, the Dems are barefaced liars, as Americans well know. As always, they’re liars and enemies of we, the People, and they’re ever so conspicuously barefaced during their Nation Convention.
Funny how their events and/or “gatherings” of their constituencies aren’t in the least subject to protective mask laws, social distancing laws, or mandatory lock-downs. But you sure as Hell better not try to go to church, have friends over, or open your business.
Funnier still how these same vermin are dead set against in-person voting for the upcoming 2020 elections. I mean really dead set if they actually believe in what they say. 😆
There sure does seem to be a disconnect here. Well, it would seem so if the Dems weren’t barefaced liars and if their “concern” over COVID-19 was actually based upon health instead of overthrowing the POTUS that Americans elected.
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.
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…

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.
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.
